Once a design escapes to the Internet, it cannot be recaptured.

Guns should be made of metal (possibly partly ceramics). That’s why God invented gun oil.

Perhaps somebody can answer a question for me, as I’m not really a gun expert.

It seems to me that existing 3d printed models, would tend to be very dangerous to fire.

Everybody agrees they only last so many rounds, and I assume one would really not want to be holding it when it fails.

Or am I missing something?

That’s an amazing story. In all honesty, I’m not that big on guns and ammo, but this 3-D printer might just get me interested in guns as a hobby.

3-D Printer Ping!

Political power grows out of the nozzle of a 3-D Printer.

We've got to get past the idea that we need to make the entire gun out of extruded plastic. You simply can't make an acceptable barrel out of plastic.

Personally, I'm looking for someone to take a pair of these:

And make one of these:

Looks like they let it cool between shots.
I figured it would blow up.

It’s a bit silly when you can make a better one from a few bucks worth of junk in your garage or from the hardware store, or even for free if you are creative.

Of course, there’s a certain thrill of pioneering a new gun design, too, Joe admits. “I may be the first person in the history of mankind to fire a bullet through a plastic rifled barrel. It’s an interesting feeling,” he says. “I feel like Samuel Colt.”

A bullet? Maybe.

But not a spud!

Details for the 1.5" SCH 40 Rifled PVC Pipe

After much development and testing, rifled PVC is now a reality.

Range testing indicates about a 50% increase in accuracy for potatoes, and pipe stands up to continuous 300 psi pretty well. This new barrel modification will send potatoes straighter and perhaps most important of all...safer. I say this as I have had experience with a stray potato every now and then, going where you might have not wanted it to go...(through my shop window).

This is really off the subject but is there a way to turn off all the Facebook and Twitter links that load on a web page. They really slow down page loading and I really could care less about FB and Twitter.

Fires 9 shots?

A magazine with 9 cartridges is enough to get you arrested on a felony charge in New York State.

That’s assuming you have somehow managed to get a state permit to own a pistol in the first place.

What gets me is how the liberal fascists ignore sling shots which can F up a person just as much as a gun. Or bow and arrows, which can kill you just as easily as a gun. It tells me this is not about killing to the liberal fascists but more about dismantling the constitution.

The environmentally friendly barrel plastic can be recycled making it acceptable to a large segment of the leftists that place environmental ideology over anti gun ideology
