If I have a single pistol ar lower can I have multiple pistol uppers? Or do they have to have a 'mate' at all times?

Still getting my stuff together but i'd like to have a 9mm pistol upper in addition to a .223 pistol upper. Just so I can swap out to a 9mm for those bulk plinking days. And no, I have not purchased anything yet.

As far as I know... As long as you have at least one pistole lower you can posses short uppers.

the problem comes in when you have a short upper and no pistol lower

Yes, you can own as many legally configured uppers as you like.

I'd not make the situation look ridiculous, however.

Do please use common sense.
If you have one pistol lower and 10 pistol uppers and a bunch of rifle lowers without uppers it starts smelling bad.

yes you can have multiple pistol uppers with 1 pistol lower but you probably should have an upper for all of your rifle lowers.
