3D Printed Guns: Low Speed. High Drag.

Lulzbot_barrel

A great nugget of information being pointed out by Weapons Man about these 3D printed guns… Something that has been completely left out of the discussion up until this point. That is the fact that the barrels on these things are not very rigid and because of that there is a big drop off in velocity. With a .380 cartridge… “They only captured 2 of the 8 shots’ velocity: 498.2 and 465.1 FPS. That’s half or less of typical .380 FMJ muzzle velocities, which range from around 900 to 1100″.

So the moral of the story here is that you better use as high a velocity round as you can to try to compensate for the big dip in velocity/performance. (9mm?) I would also probably be certain to use FMJ bullets to achieve as much penetration as possible.

Bow Mag

Somebody over at Rac-Em-Bac has been playing too much Call of Duty. Wow! This is the new Bow Mag which will allow you to put an actual bullet (.38 or .357) right on the head of your arrow to discharge on impact. (You better be 100% darn sure of the legalities of this before you actually use this for hunting. Get it in writing too. I also have no idea what the ATF says about this.) Very impressive… Read Full Post…

Slide Fire 10/22 Bumpfire stock

That awkward moment when two gunnies…

… bump into each other in a “Gun Free Zone”.

He knows that I carry 24/7. I know that he carries 24/7. And as we exchange pleasantries and how-do-ya-dos we both are looking each other up and down trying to figure out if the other is carrying or not. Nobody wants to ask, but we both have a goofy smirk on our faces cause we are both thinking the exact same thing.
