    In 2014, the Canadian government closed down a clandestine machine pistol and silencer factory located in the LaSalle Borough of Montreal, Canada. Homemadeguns has obtained some wonderful photographs that appear to be evidence photos from the raid. They are a useful and well done website. The machine pistols (almost certainly full auto) were made in a metal fabrication company. The workers were apparently told they were making parts for paintball guns. It is a good cover. The official story is that a faulty burglar alarm brought the attention of the authorities. I suspect an informant. It is unknown how...

    These highly unusual firearms were captured by Australian forces after the occupation of East Timor by Indonesia. In 1999 and later, Australian forces were part of the UN forces used to keep order after Indonesia pulled their military forces out after 24 years of occupation. Some of the unusual design features include the welded together three stacked barrels with the non-functional trigger guard and trigger. The ignition system is said to be designed for cigarettes, but any source of flame or a heated wire could work.† Using flash holes for open match ignition is usually a bad idea in...

    Theres probably lots of you gun hobbyist/hunters out there that have built your own ARís. Not all of us have done this. Johnny Muller, of Kansas City, built an AR-10, by piecing together components and a little instruction from his military buddy. To start, he got a builder kit from Aero Precision to use as a base and then pieced together his custom rifle using his favorite parts. This included Magpul furniture, a Geissele trigger and a VG6 7.62 muzzle brake. For optics, Muller chose the Nikon M-308 with BDA reticle and 20-MOA mount because he was impressed by how...

    Carlo Style Submachine gun found after attack on Israeli Car in January, 2017 In many places around the world, where firearms are very difficult to obtain legally, small shops manufacture simple submachine guns for the black market. They are common in Brazil, Israel, the Philippines, and increasingly in Australia,† Canada, and even the United States, where submachine guns are highly regulated.

    As governments attempt to make more guns and gun ownership illegal, they succeed in doing so.† It does not mean that fewer criminals are armed.† Overall crime does not drop when controls are implemented.† One of the reasons is that guns are fairly easy to make, and the materials to make them are virtually impossible for an industrial society to control. An unintended consequence is that submachine guns or machine pistols may be substituted for ordinary pistols.† They are easier to make, because they are a simpler mechanism. The above machine pistol/ submachine gun, based on the MAC design...

    Californians who assemble their own weapons from parts they've bought or gathered will have to apply for a state-issued serial number under a law signed Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown. Brown signed Assembly Bill 857, which imposes a new mandate on anyone who buys components that can be made into a fully functional firearm. Those weapons are not currently traceable in the same way as buying a fully operating firearm. Democrats pushed through the bill last month as part of a sweeping package of proposals inspired by recent shootings. Several of those bills, including an effort to impose new rules...

    This image from appears to be from a Portugese† police agency.† Shotgun shells are often used for the clandestine manufacture of pistol ammunition.† It many countries it is much easier to obtain shotgun shells than pistol or rifle ammunition.† In countries where severe restrictions on the private ownership of firearms have been imposed, shotguns are the least restricted.† In the extremely restrictive Soviet Union, shotgun cartridges were relatively available.† In England, the easiest firearm license to obtain is the shotgun license, as it is in Japan.

    New York woman arrested for driving with a handmade license plate. On Friday, CBS News reported that Amanda Schweickert, 28, of Sardinia is in trouble for using a fake license plate. She is not supposed to be driving because she has a suspended registration and no car insurance. However, it did not stop her from using a little creativity. She decided to create her own license plate. Authorities say she used a piece of cardboard and painted blue text on it. Although the plate didnít look too dreadful, it fooled no one. On Wednesday, a police officer pulled Schweickert over...

  • Make Your Own Homemade Baby Food

    02/20/2014 6:42:40 PM PST · by JoeSeales · 33 replies ^ | 2-20-14 |
    Hey guys. The wife and I just created a new website for those of you who are new parents. Making baby recipes for your little one protects them from harmful additives such as nitrates, artificial coloring, and preservatives including BHA, BHT, and TBHQ. In addition to protecting your baby from the unnatural additives, you save a great deal of money making your own homemade baby food. For example, buying store bought organic food costs on average $1.40 for a 4 ounce jar. Making the same amount at home costs about $.30. Store bought non-organic food costs about $1.05 per 4...

    I am what you might call a recovering junk food addict. One that had an especially strong penchant for candy. And while I've managed to get my sweet tooth under control in recent years, I still have quite a weakness for homemade versions of classic treats. Being able to create them without preservatives or strange ingredients makes this a justifiable weakness, I'd dare say.
