Default AR questions and ban info

What are the different types and calibers of ARs? What is going on with the ban? I am interested in getting one for home defense, shooting, and possibly hunting. I do not know much about them.

There are many "types", brands, there are many calibers, there is no ban.

The prices are just ridiculous. I can't wait til the prices come back to earth and everyone has a rifle worth a fraction what they paid.

It is going to also weed out some of the gun shops. Will they be able to survive long enough to be there when customers get the itch to buy anything again? After they gobbled up all the guns and ammo they could recently, I do not see them shopping like they were six months or a year ago.

There are still Plenty of folks wanting to acquire more stuff, hence the rediculous prices we're seeing in the secondary market and the lack of availability from retailers.

As stock returns to the dealers shelves, it will be bought, as long as the price point is right for the market.

At the prices I am seeing I would be happier spending the money on a Browning BAR and get a Trijicon scope. These prices are down right disgusting. Lets see what happens on down the road.

Yep one more reason to hold off.
Question, is saying Browning BAR like saying VIN number?
