    Ctrl+P = Gun?: Printing firearms at home with 3D printers now a reality. TWT

    He plans to release the blueprint for “the Liberator” early next week after a few more rounds of testing. From there, anyone can download the design and create the gun with an open-source 3D printer, which can be bought for less than $1,000.http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...me-3d-printer/

    Staples is now also selling a $1299 desktop 3d printer. I wouldn't know if it has the acuracy required for this job though.

    That's a good price and it will work, it will just take some cleaning up to finish the product. This one I will be ordering myself when I get the cash, it is a little bit more money but it is extremely HIGH DEF. then any other printer for the price range.

    Because of federal laws they had to implant a 6oz piece of metal in the firearm, so it would set metal detectors off.

    Odds are, people who build these will not follow that guideline, so I sense big problems coming in the future from the Govt.

    Although pretty sure the detectors at airports and stuff can detect hard plastics and stuff like these also? Not sure.

    these are requirements for firearms manufactures ... does not apply to private citizens ...

    Make whatever firearms you desire ..

    Didn't the assassin in "In the Line of Fire" find a way around that for his plastic gun?

    I just can't see buying a $1000 + Printer to make a pistol that fires one round. Sure it is impressive and yes it can make a firearm that is has no serial number, etc that the gov. does not like. Let me know when the printers run about $500 and can punch all the parts to make an AR or something cheaper than buying one. That will impress the heck out of me. But right now it is just interesting.

    So will Liberty-lovers. This development merely proves (actually this IS the significance of this development) that Liberty will out. Trying to squelch Liberty is like playing Whack-a-Mole. You may hit this one...and that one...and, look, that one over there! But another one will pop up there...and over there...and, look, that one over there!

    This printed gun is a mole popping up over there. The government will try to whack it. But another will pop up elsewhere.

    The firing pin is a nail so could be detectable, but there is plastic "practice" ammo powered by only a magnum primer, I use to use them in a .357 to kill rats in a barn, add a little powder and they could be a one shot close range killer and eliminate a large quantity of detectable metal.

    I have no interest in a single shot .380; but this intrigues the hell out of me....

    That's the entire point. Cody Wilson isn't even a "gun guy". (Neither are Robert Levy or Alan Gura, but they delivered the Heller decision for us!)

    The point is that you can always make an end run around the law, which makes law, and the government that creates and attempts to enforce it, anachronistic and pointless.

    It doesn't even have to be an expensive high tech solution. Remember the price controls of the Nixon era? The government published long lists of all sorts of items, and what sellers were allowed to charge. They even published a schedule for various cuts of meat, by name!

    Oddly enough (not!), those cuts of meat simply disappeared from the market. "What's that, you say? I can only charge $1.99 a pound for T-bone steaks? Oh, no problem... we're all out of T-bones. How about a nice L-bone instead, for just $2.99 a pound?"

    Governments will attempt to ban these guns. When that fails, they will attempt to control the conventional ammunition they use. The solution for that will probably be even simpler -- since they're single shot anyway, make them muzzleloaders. If they ban lead, use ceramic projectiles. If they ban primers, switch to electric ignition. If they ban gunpowder, switch to gas.

    The list goes on, endlessly. The only hope government has for containing firearms in someone conventional form, is to make sure they stay legal.

    Yea, just imagine how many whole cities I can take over with a bunch of 3D printed single shot handguns.

    I can make a firearm out of break line or gas pipe. If I was that desperate for a firearm I wouldn't worry about using a 3D printer to make one.
