[The Verge] Defense Distributed gets license to make and sell 3D printed guns - Page 3  

post #21 of 47
This is awesome. I love the Defense Dist project for their work in marginalizing the effectiveness of gun/magazine controlling legislation. I personally try to make sure I'm seeding their database of designs 100% of the time. I'm not sure what the point of getting a license to sell guns is for though because the whole point of 3D printing them is to enable people to print the serial numbered part of the gun at home, bypassing the need for a serial number and record of sale legally.

Cheaper maybe?

Is this actually more cost effective than a CNC for metal or an injection molding system for plastic?

We seem to be able to produce ARs with both of those technologies already. All I've heard about 3D printing is that it is not cost effective at all.

Well, I live in a good neighborhood. One of my neighbors was running a grow op out of his basement and ended up getting murdered. You never know what will happen.

Well, A and B are true, but if a dog is 5 feet away from you, charging you and you don't have your gun drawn, it's not gonna be a fun experience.

Have 3 of them. 2 are complete spoiled babies, 1 is actually protective, but none of them are mean. Pitbulls have a bad reputation, any dog can be made to be mean.

Actually in contrast to popular belief, you can train any large dog to be very effective. Smaller dogs can work, just remember if the offender has the weight that dog will lose. And by will lose, all you need is a tire iron for most smaller animals. The same applies to a larger dog but the difference is they can get you in more damaging areas. Lab, pit, sheppard, collie (full size), dalmation, huskie, anything that can easily reach an upper appendage is going to be able to do some nasty damage. Or have the jaw size to do a nice bite on the higher calf, if they hit the right vein it is very bad.

You can also train a dog to understand if you are playing or hurt, most people do this through key words but a lot of dogs will pick up the idea of you being scared. Since dogs are very territorial even the laziest dog will become very effective. I can tell you from personal experience, even without being violent a good size lab can take down a 6" man with NO problems. I would not want to piss off any dog that's around 120-150lbs, EVER. Unless I had some nice hand weapons or a gun, even then you need to make sure you get that dog down the first time as it's jaw is going to go through your arm like butter.

[edit] As Shrak said, pits aren't that mean either. It is a huge misconception, I've seen sheppards who are 10x worse than pits. Some nasty Dalmations, collies, the works. Any dog can be an aggressive dick, it's how you raise it. Don't confuse how a dog plays with the mentality, larger dogs play rough as it is in their nature. We beat the crap out dogs round here, but it really isn't beating to them. A full size huskie is going to take a beating like you aren't doing anything, to outsiders it might look like we are being mean. Hell no, that dog will eat it up and come back at us in the same way. Nobody gets hurt, the dog doesn't hurt us and loves the rough attention. One friend even has kids, the dog KNOWS not to play rough with the kids or it will feel a real beating. We make sure it knows when we play or punish, that is the biggest thing to teach.

Some of the comments in this thread are absurdly ridiculous.

Or sleep next to a shotgun and save yourself the effort of walking a pit bull.

And as I say in every 3D-gun printing thread.... I will take my machined weapons and let others test out printed guns. I know better than to risk weapon malfunctions.

+1 for shutgun, the beast weapon in home defense. The only gun I'd chose outside of that would be a 35 revolver, or something of that caliber. You typically want a weapon that says "you will die". Both of those options say that, as no matter where you hit a man they will go down. Might not kill them but a shotgun wounds badly and a 35... It's pretty much the same thing, even a shot to the arm/leg is going to make the average man drop pretty quick.

I'm very happy. Just keep the gun-grabbers away from him. x.x But I think this could either be cheaper or more expensive? We'll see. rolleyes.gif
