That's less of an issue in NH, but remembering to buy batteries can be.    ;D

Hey, Rastus,

Did you ever decide what kind of PCC you were gonna build? I did a blowback 9mm a few years ago. I used a CMMG lower that was set up for Colt-type 9mm stick mags. I've been happy with it. It runs well and doesn't beat me up that much, even with the narrow Blade brace. I can provide a parts list if you're interested. If I built another, I would NOT use the stupid gas deflector ejection port cover. It was a PITA to install, and I don't think it does that much. I do like the SMG-type mags. IMHO, they're more reliable than the vaunted Glock mags.

All my best...

Aero Precision launched their EPC-9 receiver sets for 9mm or 40S&W AR builds a few days ago. Coming soon will be the EPC-10 lineup for 10mm or 45ACP AR builds. The EPC-9 receiver set accepts standard frame GLOCK magazines and has a last round bolt hold open integrated into the upper receiver. The EPC-10 will be the same, only bigger and better. An EPC-10 carbine in 10mm would be EPIC.

I am pretty set...at least today...to get a 10MM.  I'm waiting now for prices to come down or a job....  I hate spending retirement $$$'s on that right now.  Maybe after I sell some livestock but that's out a ways waiting on the cows, donkeys and dogs to produce something to sell.

I got that Aero Precision pistol in 10 mm.
LOVE IT !
HOWEVER, it is a COMMERCIAL design that lacks some of the simplicity of the AR's.
The only 10 mm AR upper I can think of is CMMG, expensive, but probably worth it if you can afford it.
 10MM is now one of the less expensive calibers.

CMMG is way high priced.  I need that price to fall.  A 9MM or a 45 may be a better choice in so far as keeping the caliber count down but they just don't do what the 10MM can do.

45 will be the same price.
It's what the 10 mm was originally designed for.

Nope.  Blue Healers, Papillons and a Catahoula that's really nice.
