Anyone have recommendations on lower kits? Looking to start buying the parts to build a new lower for my RRA varmint upper.

Glock or M&P remo? I'm having a hard time deciding between the two.

I was a Glock guy for a long time, switched all of my guns to M&P and never been happier, same reliability but the M&P shoots better for me, not as canted as the Glock.

Just picked up a Glock 42. Needed a pocket gun for those "quick out the door" days.

I have to agree with Remo on this for me the natural aimpoint on a glock at 25 ft is about a foot high. Reliability is top notch though. Personally I went with the XDM but the M&P series is very hard to beat.

Cant go wrong with rock river. Both of my lowers are from SAA. Great builds easy price and same milspec quality you get from some of the higher end retailers.

My next build will be from an 80% lower and be fro the AR-10

Those are nice. Only a little bit bigger than the same gun in 9mm/.40. Can't really say that about the Glocks, frame sizes vary enough between 9mm and the .45 acp to notice at a quick glance.

Different strokes for different folks though.

Went to an indoor range nearby and shot for about an hour. On the way out I decided to do a little window shopping. In the used section they had a Dan Wesson 741 .41 Mag, blued, two sets of grips (one are the DW wooden ones),a case and it has a ten inch barrel. When he said $575 I looked around for a camera because I thought I was getting punked. Can't wait to shoot this pig.

Just picked up m&p shield 9mm for concealed purpose. Liked the way it shot better than the xps or glock 43. Got a great deal at the px for $303 out the door. Glock would of been $420 out the door for blue label purchase if anybody was wondering. Now if only I could find cheap good 9mm ammo in bulk.

Plenty of sites have 9mm in bulk, around $.21/rd.

Check out, ammoseek.com, lucky gunner, natchezs, bulk ammo.

Also try gunbot(dot)net as well if you've never used that to find cheap ammo.

Did some gunsmithing today on my M&P, the shop ordered me in the version with the thumb safety, thought I could live with it but it was a no go, call S&W and they sent me out the frame plugs, did a 10 minute job today and no more thumb safety and no holes in frame
