Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

OK, So I Wanna Build an AR

I put my order in today for a "Fill Your Hands You Son of a Bitch" York Arms stripped AR-15 lower, and I want to build a .50 Beowulf .458 SOCOM on it.

I've never built an AR.  I don't have a bench vise, but I can pick one up from Harbor Freight fairly cheaply.  I know Brownell's or somebody had a series of videos on building your own AR, but I haven't been able to find them.  I've checked both Brownell's and Midway and they are out of stock on AR-15 lower parts kits.  I don't want to buy an Alexander Arms complete upper, I'd like to build an upper based on this 18" AR-Stoner stainless barrel. I'm going to buy a Rock River complete upper.

I have a stock wrench and standard hand tools. So what other tools will I need?

UPDATED:  I've decided to go .458 SOCOM instead.  Thanks for all the suggestions and recommendations!
