Baby steps, my friend. Baby steps. Eventually gun control will be nonexistent, but you can't run before you learn to walk and you can't walk before you learn to crawl.

Looks like it used to, but snapped off. Not the best pic to use for a Forbes article.

Why not just buy a real gun that you know works?

I'll be buying a real gun for my 21st birthday.

I'll be printing this bad boy out when I get access to a 3D printer.

If it fires only ONCE..it is a "proof of concept" and a tremendous technological achievement.


I cannot believe how many people look at a nearly miraculous advancement and BRAND NEW industry and say "meh..its not a PERFECT end-game item, so 'not impressed'"


Shhheeeeesh.....If one looked at early internet iterations and then looked at TODAY's innerweb...mind blowing.
