View Full Version : Science Print your own gun

Interesting article about guys giving away plans for guns assembled from parts created in a 3D printer.

Which CPer will be the first?

"If 24-year-old University of Texas law student and part-time revolutionary Cody Wilson has his way, every human being in the United States, whether old or young, licensed or unlicensed, will soon be able to make a fully functioning, perfectly lethal gun in the comfort of their very own living rooms, for less than the cost of a few drinks."

A few people on another forum I visit, have been experimenting with these. Reportedly it holds up well. Hopefully the technology is not stopped dead in it's tracks but pussified liberal legislators adopting bullshit anti-constitutional legislation, sadly it probably will be.

Obama is going to confiscate all our printers.....

Really, on my phone so I did not se your video posted? But, from what I haveread unless they come up with a miracle material the material breaks after one or two shots when chambered and shot, because it cannot withstand the pressure.

Now for everything else on the gun it would work. To keep prices down. Hell I. Priced one of the printers last month, just seem soo fun.

There is also a artist coop in kc that has one.

I'd be afraid of the damn thing blowing up in my hands. I'll stick to traditionally made guns for now.

Print out something that is supposed to blow up in your hand, like a grenade.

I love the future.

I'd be all over this if I knew it could create a reliable AR lower that would hold up long term.

So, a Cannon printer?

Revolutionaries printing their own guns with money from anonymous foreign investors. Yeah, nothing could go wrong with that.

Guns are great.

Reminds me of a roadrunner cartoon for some reason.

From the article, they're printing mostly lowers, because that's where the cost savings are highest. It's also the part most regulated.

Not sure if they've been printing uppers.

I haven't heard of any uppers being printed, just lowers.

Can I print out Scarlett Johansson

The technology is there. If people really wanted to share the designs they already can. I know, and am tired of hearing how torrents are illegal, but there is already a section on the pirate bay for this. Technology is moving at a great pace, and if it keeps up the "You wouldn't steal a car" group is going to be forced to eat their words. We are not yet to that stage, but I do believe eventually we will be.

Fuck this.

I think she just bypasses the spoon most of the time and goes fingers to face.
