Welcome to the club! I just finished my first build before the scare and am now in the middle of four other builds with friends. Sure glad I got my parts when I did though. On the bright side the slow period will give you time to do little research and review reading, there's a plethora of options and over 60 calibers available which makes it even harder to decide on a build. I researched every single part on my gun before purchase and now have my dream ar15, just be ready to go over budget, my budget was $650 for a cheap build and ended up spending $1400.

Good start.

Be patient and hopefully you can find parts for the upper.

i have a build similar to that. Nothing quite like keeping it simple. Makes the mall ninjas insecure to see a straight forward rifle shoot just as well as their own.
