quotes

“When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you may not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything--you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.”

multiguns

Given the relative price / non-existence of pistol-caliber ammunition these days (up to and including, shockingly enough, .22LR), the rational behind these awesome little toys is somewhat more… lacking, but, still, want:

On 05MAY13, DefDist successfully optested their almost-entirely-3D-printed handgun, aptly named (for a variety of reasons) “The Liberator”.  It looks like they also unsuccessfully optested it at least once, but that is rather besides the point; the proof of concept has been completed, now it is just a matter of polishing it […]

hypothetically speaking

If one were looking for a three-dimensional printer with a minimum resolution of at most 100 microns (0.1mm) and a vertical build envelope of at least 7.5 inches (191mm) and that required a minimum of construction/assembly (specifically, no soldering), what would folks recommend? 

totalitarians hated the printing press too

I was going to include this with my previous post regarding New York’s obscene new laws and Connecticut’s desired idiocy, but I figured it deserved a post of its own:

That, fellow defenders of liberty, is a magazine fabricated on (I think) a stereolithography (SLA) printer out of (I think) an epoxy-based resin; the specifics are not entirely clear, but, frankly, I would rather the folks at DefDist spend their time ironing out […]

a bit more information on the zip

A week after first posting about it, and about two weeks until its "official" website launch, the guys behind the ZiP pistol have heard your questions and provided some answers.

Among the useful bits of information to come out are:

– Yes, it can use a suppressor. Apparently the top strap of the firearm either hides or is a barrel wrench that can be used to remove the existing barrel and screw in […]
