Rapid fire and 1/2" groups at 100 yards don't go hand in hand... Especially when good hunting rifles are typically rated to 1 MOA, I don't understand where you've come up with this fantasy land where people can rapid fire groups that would make a seasoned hunter envious.
Have you ever been hunting? Target shooting? Trap/skeet shooting?
It's a lot of fun. Guns aren't only for protection, they're a fun hobby and a blast to go out and shoot. When you out with your buddies and go shooting, the stresses of work fall away and you have a great time. We aren't all out there practicing for a zombie apocalypse, many of us go shooting to have a good time.

COD bro, I bet 90% of the people in this thread don't even own a firearm. I skimmed through this thread, got my nine chuckles. AR-15 from a 3-D printer, lawl.

Sounds like a good concept for manufacturing in the future if the application can eventually be used with metals. I am questioning the logic of many of these posts as a few poeple are worried about some kind of criminal activity that would arise out of this process. Seems like a few have forgotten that there will always be bad guys in the world, and it's the person, not the weapon, which kills or injures people. Guns, knives, rocks, pencils, forks, glass, fists, and feet can all be used by people to kill somone. Adding another tool to the infinitely long list does absolutely nothing to add to the bad behavior. On another note, I would much rather be in a gun fight with a bad guy who had a printed gun, and me with my M4, than both of us with real firearms rolleyes.gif

1. This is getting old. I hate people piling on COD. Someone plays COD, they must also have a high likelihood of not possessing or shooting a firearm. Also, like Battlefield is any more realistic. Quick scoping with an M98 red-dot, or laying down 100 rounds from the LSAT 1/2 MOA, like getting shot and throwing down a med pack to heal up, or repairing a tank with nothing more than a torch. Oh yeah, battlefield is VERY realistic, and anyone who plays battlefield knows all there is to know about guns, tanks, and everything else. As a matter of fact, I heard that all the guys in the military are retiring in 2013, so all the "veteran" battlefield players can take their spot and show 'em how it's done 'cause they're so leet rolleyes.gif /rant

And before you go laughing about 3-D printers, think about everything else involving technology. 20 years ago, no one could have imagined we'd have computers, or TVs, or cars, or jets, hell even cell phones, that we have now. You would have had to put that kind of stuff in science fiction movies, and look where we are at today. Is it possible to mass-produce ARs? Obviously, as I have learned in this thread, it is not. But to "lawl" at people that think the possibility is there in the not-so-distant future? That's just silly, you can't just write something off as being a ridiculous notion just because it's not possible right now

Unfortunately if we all continue to show fear and aversion to this pathetic excuse for a McGuyver experiment it may not be possible in the future to use a 3D printer for anything. So while I applaud your sensible view, I ask that you stop feeding the fear with notions like these. We mass produce guns every day. Just not with a 3D printer. And people will build homemade weapons and use them no matter the regulation you put on 3D printing.

Please tech people at least give me the chance to use one before they get banned for consumer use mad.gif

Did you even read what I wrote?? Obviously we mass produce guns every day, and have been since what, the 1800s?? But is this thread about mass producing guns the traditional way? No, it's about using a 3-D printer to mass produce quality weapons that function with a legit round, and last longer than 5 shots. Let's go back to the tape of what I said, shall we?

I was DEFENDING the use of trying something with 3-D printers, citing the past 20 years of technology and advancements as part of the proof that it might very well be possible to USE 3-D printers to mass produce ARs. 20 years ago, it wasn't possible to write a program that could use more than a single thread, and it was impossible to have a CPU that had the ability to execute more than one thread. Now, we have a ton of threads on CPUs, even our mobile devices are capable of having quad cores! 20 years ago, was it possible to have HDTV in a 1/4 inch thick LED TV? Not even close, but look at the state of the television today. Is it possible to mass produce a quality AR with a 3-D printer today? Nope, sure isn't, but looking at just those two areas of technology, think about where we will be in 20 years!! I think it's ridiculous to write off being able to produce a gun from a 3-D printer just because we don't have the capacity to do it right now.

MW2 was fun...but I gotta tell ya, I'm actually enjoying BLOPS2 quite a bit right now. I still enjoy battlefield 3 over blops2, but blops2 is still very enjoyable smile.gif

I agree and also RE-STATE that if you keep saying it to the blind reactionaries who somehow feel it's ok to fear technology then you're adding weight to their fears and increasing the possibility that 3D printing will be illegal to consumers very soon. Don't do that.

Try something like "hooray for 3D printing what can't it do?"

The only thing I think about the subject of 3D printing pieces of guns is that it's a waste of time. Anything that can be made out of plastic can already be more cost effectively mass produced, and everything else cannot be made on a 3D printer. Just about any part of a gun can be made on a CNC anyway, so what are people worrying about?

To me, it felt exactly like COD4, but with terrible map design and a bunch of stupid flashy features that added nothing to the game.

I didn't mean 200, I meant 20. The problem is that no one here seems to have reading comprehension, which is why I deleted the posts that you have quoted a bit of. Not really worth arguing for argument's sake. Short and sweet of it is, 3-D printing will be a great resource that, with advances in materials, will have nearly limitless possibilities.
