    Already making me think of Thanksgiving. I love those days. Cooking, eating, and drinking. No work worries. Can't wait!

    Yeah, the AR9 is sweet, do it! Excellent home defense gun. It's a blast to shoot too.

    I keep saying I'm going to get a smoker but haven't pulled the trigger yet, keep buying other shit instead. Was thinking of putting one on my Christmas list but leaning towards an EO Tech now.

    A lot easier and cheaper I think to buy a complete, but I like building them. You really get to know your firearm when you build it. It's a win win though. Complete you're just done and you know it's gonna work for the most part.

    I've gotta smoker that's about 30 years old - I've done more rigging and metal replacement than I can remember on it - but it works great and I love it.
    Don't have to be pretty - just as long as it works :)

    I would build one because you can customize the parts. But if this is your first ar, I would buy a complete and learn how it works before building one.
