I have been hanging around here for about a year now and I have grown to trust what I read on this site.
I just joined AR-15.com but they don't seem to be as nice and I don't know who to trust over there so I am going to read stuff there and then verify what is said over here if that is OK with everyone.
Does this post sound right to you guys?
"Whatever you buy, buy the upper and lower SEPARATE. This will save you the 11% excise tax on complete firearms. You can order the complete upper by mail, and get a complete lower through your local FFL dealer. Then, snap the 2 together (takes 10 seconds) and you have a complete AR and likey saved 80-100 bucks."
