Can I use a 3D printer to print a 3D printer? That would be cool.
This almost can, 2/3rds there
3D printer cost a lot of money. A plastic gun will not endure more than one or two rounds. If you want a a gun that you can shoot a couple of times you can have it much cheaper. Here is one video. It's made for a 12 gauge shot gun ammunition, which is not expensive. You can use the same principle for 22LR, 38 Special, 9mm, 357 Magnum and many other calibers without having to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars. You can have your pipe gun for less than 20$, easily. 3D printers to make a gun are distracting people to waste their money on something that is not worth it.
22 caliber zip gun
22 Caliber zip gun picture
A simple single-shooter made from a piece of steel tube or pipe. The cartridge is held in place by an endcap, with a small hole drilled in the rear to allow a nail or other thin piece of metal access to the primer as a firing pin. The user only has to propel a hammer against the rear of the firing pin using a rubber band or other spring, and the cartridge will fire. Because of the cheap expense, availability, and low operating pressure, Zip guns generally use .22 Long Rifle ammunition.
the old 50-60's car antennas used to fit a .22 perfect, Uncle showed me that trick as a young'n ;)
Some simple guns
Everybody should be pleased that the idiots that run the US .gov have 'declared war' on 3D printers. It guarantees that they will become more powerful and cheaper.
What did the War on [Some] Drugs do? Made drugs ubiquitous, cheap and powerful.
What did the War on Poverty do? Made poverty endemic.
What is the War on Terror doing? Making new "terrorists" (the families of the victims of State terror).
What we need now is for the US .gov scumbags to declare a War on Liberty - that way, we can be guaranteed that within a generation, liberty will be ubiquitous, cheap, and of extremely high purity.
(Side note: I don't want to diminish the suffering of the poor sods who are incarcerated and have their lives ruined as a result of the corrupt political scum and their 'War on [Non-Big-Pharma] Drugs"... but nobody can deny that drugs are (a) easier to come by; and (b) cheaper than they were a generation ago.)
