That is an awesome application of the 3D printer.

At least one good use for the 3D printer, Harry.

There was an article in the paper in the last week, that crims could download a file from the internet and print a 38 cal pistol......

I'm really sorry to hear of your daughter's experience Bob but it's only by constant research plus of cause trial and error that the perfect one will one day be reality. 3D printing is a fast way to make prototypes and so should speed up development.

Quite true James, last week the police produced one that could fire bullets. It was shown on TV here.

Maybe they will blow themselves up when they fire it! However some parts can be made! I suspect it is cheaper to just go buy the gun, though!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

A plastic hand gun will pass security, not a metal one.........

True, James. But I would not want to fire it! If plastic were practical, don't you think someone would already be doing that? Doesn't really take a 3D printer!
