Nobody believed we might have a MUSLIM president who does not salute the American flag.
Watch what happens to what we consider civilization around this time next year if he gets elected.
They will not be looking for your TV. The wife and daughters will be first.........

I'd suggest the 9mm but just so I can live vicariously through you. In my mind, the 9mm would make an excellent short-medium range carbine. The round can really take advantage of more barrel length than it's usually given.
I really want to build one as my first AR but it will be ages until I can pop that much dough. There's AK business to do first.
What I really, really want is one that takes Glock mags so it will match my daily carry sidearm but the only people who make them are Olympic and I haven't heard great things about them PLUS they don't sell parts, just complete rifles. :(

That is why I like the 9mm AR. Mine uses the same mags as my UZI. Just a little notch cut in the mag to make it work in the AR. It still works in the UZI too.
A 9mm AR will run you $1000.00 to put together one from Rock River Arms. A bit more than a .223 version. A mag adapter, different hammer, heavier buffer and, different upper assembly. I like that 9mm does not require a gas tube. Simple blow back.
At 50 meters I can get a mag full into a 12 inch circle with only iron sights. In a close combat situation, that will do you a lot more good than a higher powered AR that pulls up and has a much larger give you away muzzel flash.
Good accuracy with enough power to do some hard hitting quickly.

Grendal would be better used in a heavier weapon.
Too much power.
Fracturing an engine block on a half track.
Getting into the rotor of that RUSSIAN copter.
Serious sniper duty.
But, for quick and adjile close combat, it will be 9mm for us.

I know someone makes a 45acp upper with a mag adapter.That would be my choice.

I would go with the 6.5 as my first choice, actually. If I have to use the weapon defensively, I want my target to stay down after the first shot. I also want vehicle stopping power, which the 6.5 is extremely capable of, only being surpassed by the 7.62x39 in velocity at ranges further than 400 yards, if I'm not mistaking.
But, don't take my word for it, check out the Grendel 6.5 for yourself: 6.5 Grendel Fan Site :: For the 6.5 Grendel Aficionado (http://www.65grendel.com)
