I Done Tolja Plenty Already!

Also, Streisand Effectors enabledFull throttle!


     Funniest comment at DefDist: "You created this for making the point of second amendment in the united states. But have you thgought about the scale of colateral damage it creates in parts of the world?"  (From a handle that appears to track back to the "People's Republic" of China.)

     H'mm, let's see, .380 single-shot with a short-lived barrel that requires a high-tech printer to make vs. village gunsmiths vs. the sub-Saharan sub-$20 AK-47 (many of them made in the PRC) vs. the largest dam in the world on one of the world's siltiest rivers...  Yeah, talk to me about "damage" and "scale."  Y'know what the little plastic gun is good for?  Saying, "Leave me alone," or "No, you can't rob me," or, if you're really, really brave, shooting a jack-booted thug from behind and taking his big fancy gun for your very own.  Y'know how to avoid that last one?  Get outta the jackbooted thuggery business.  Now 'scuse me, I gotta go talk to the .gov about a log in the eye.

Anyone with a drill press, a file, and a hacksaw can make a functional firearm.

All the engineering information about how to make an AR or an AK can be put on a $5 micro SD card the size of your pinky nail, and can be concealed anywhere.

VERY NICE HI TECH THE MATERIALS AND MACHINE TO MAKE THE PIECE ARE FEW FAR BETWEEN RATHER EXPENSIVE AND THEREFORE NOT VERY PRACTICAL

BACK IN MY NOT SO MISPENT YOUTH WITH READILY OBTAINABLE UN TRACEABLE MATERIALS AND ABOUT A HALF HOUR AT A WORK BENCH ONE COULD FABRICATE A MORE OR LESS FIREARM KNOWN AS "ZIP-GUN"
DEPENDING ON YOUR CHOICE OF MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP IT WOULD NOT USUALLY EXPLODE IN YOUR HAND
(YOUR RESULTS MAY VARY)(BOYS AND GIRLS LEAVE THIS TO THE BIG KIDS)

THEY WERE FUN TO MAKE BUT SAFER ORDNANCE OUTLETS WERE AVAILABLE TO US

THE OSS IN WWII HAD A MUCH IMPROVED SINGLE SHOT PISTOL IN .45 ACP AIR DROPPED TO RESISTANCE ELEMENTS THEIR USE WAS TO COLLECT
GERMAN KAR98 MP40 MG 38 ETC FROM THEIR LATE OWNERS FOR THE ALLIED CAUSE

I WOULD THINK THE OSS PIECE OR A VERY GOOD HOME MADE VARIANT IS THE WAY TO GO

IN THE VIDEO THE AIRCRAFT DEPICTED
ARE "FLYING FORTRESSES" NOT LIBERATORS

It would seem that "get out of the jackbooted thuggery business" is always good advice.

If we Americans were true to our Levitical principles ("proclaim liberty throughout the land" for those without a Bible or a Liberty Bell handy), we would be producing millions of these pistols and the ammo for them, and and air-dropping them all over the world.

Particularly over the head of the idiot PRC commenter.

Bobbi, is the blogmeet next Sunday? When you posted the place on your main page, you seem to have kayoed the date, which as I recall was "either the 18th or 19th".

During the early hours of the Hungarian Revolution, my Father told me that they got their first guns by ganging up on lone cops using pipes and rocks, then "Lather, Rinse, Repeat" until they had enough to take over a Police Station and get it's Armory. That continued until the Hungarian Army got into the act and joined the Revolution.

Which probably would have worked until the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact scrambled it's Air Force and about a Dozen Armored Divisions.

Hard to hold off a T-54 with a PPsh Subgun, you know. But they did it long enough for about 250,000 people to escape to Austria.

Which isn't bad for a country about the Size and Population of Indiana.

So they could have used those 3D Pistols in the early days, but for Long Term Armored Warfare? Not so good.

But sometimes one can't get rid of the Jack Booted Thugs. Again for example, Hungary. First it was the Austro-Hungarian Empire, then Admiral Horthy's Fascist "Regency," then the Nazis, then the Russians, who set up a Puppet Gooberment until things fell apart in the late '80s.

So you had 4-5 Generations of People who couldn't Vote out the Bums because there was No Vote that would count. And since a Police State only gives Guns to whom the Bosses "Allows," well.....

The whole point of the one-shot pistol is to use it to shoot someone who has a real gun, so you can take it for yourself.

That was the raison d'ĂȘtre behind the FP-45 Liberator pistol. Nobody expected them to be used for long-term purposes; they were intended for use by local resistance members.

If the Chinese need do download plans from the Internet in order to make a zip gun, then we don't have much to fear from them.
