While I considered going in a different direction for my next AR, recent events have got me considering picking up a Colt 6920 from my local Wally World if and when they get them back in stock. Unlike just about everywhere else you look, Walmart hasn't jacked their gun prices sky high and it's hard to beat a 6920 for a basic, quality carbine. It wouldn't be exactly what I want, but it would be a base to build from when everything calms back down. If there is any gun control action taken, at least I would still have a functional rifle.
