Sorry fells, going to have to flex on you motherfuckers...    

Yeet 

Yo. I hate to be that guy, but the first time I ever fired a shotgun, I shot it off in the house on accident. I blew a hole through my wifes dresser and shredded all her clothes in that drawer. Two th

Nice fuckin collection!

 

 

After everything calms down I'm gonna get a cheap used glock so I can paint it.

Nothing gay and flashy . Something subtle like those

this is mine in 10 days...

 

when i thought about piecing one out it seemed like a huge pain.

 

when i originally wanted to get into the AR this was what first caught my eye and the price is what made it a for sure.....

 

I was amazed there was one in stock....2 actually.

Thanks.

 

If you want a colored frame glock, they made them in OD green like my 23 up there, and flat dark earth (tan). The colored frame versions are a little more expensive because there are way more all black ones, so people selling the colored frames think they have some sort of special collectors item..

If you wanna paint the whole gun, I would suggest the oven cure Cerakote over Duracoat.

Or you could just use some vintage krylon and get all hip hop on it, haha.

I did a bit of research in to that .22 TCM when I was looking in to buying a RIA 1911. I like the idea, and I think it could be successful. BUT... On paper it has better ballistics than the FN 5.7x28, but when that cartridge came out it was hyped as the next big thing and look where it is now. Small market, that centers on two weapons. The 5.7 pistol and the P90 "civilian carbine", both of which are pretty pricey. As of right now it too fringe for me to justify spending the money on it. Even if it is just a conversion kit.

A Danish company that sells 3D printer component parts and related software to 3D printer manufacturers now says it has come up with a firearm component detection algorithm.

 

On Tuesday, Create it Real announced that in the coming months its software would include an option to find and block gun parts. When it detects a file that contains firearm parts, the software will shut down and disallow printing. Create it Real's software will likely be licensed to 3D printer manufacturers for around "several thousand euros annually" and then bundled with a 3D printer sold to individual consumers.

 

This innovation is squarely aimed at efforts from Defense Distributed, the group based in Texas that has done more to advance 3D printed firearm research than any other organization worldwide. In the last several months, DefDist has made and demonstrated an AR-15 lower receiver and an entire handgun. As a result, a number of American legislators started drafting new possible regulations in the face of rapidly declining 3D printer prices.

 

“In Europe there are laws around manufacturing firearms—if it becomes too easy to just press print, who is responsible?” Jeremie Pierre Gay, the company’s CEO, said to Ars. “That is the concern of the manufacturer. They want to get rid of this responsibility. In general, our software works like an antivirus [program], we have a central database [where] we collect all the files that are firearms.”

 

“The goal is that the average user won’t be able to by mistake print a gun”

 

Gay declined to explain precisely how his detection algorithms work, other than to say they involve a “combination of geometrical features.” For now, this software is only available for Create it Real’s hardware—but the executive noted that he would be happy to license it to other software developers.

 

“In our case, if you wanted to print on our printer then you have to use our software,” he added. “[Firearms are] only blocked for our printer—if you had another printer then you will be able to print [a gun]. Everything can be broken, but the goal is that the average user won’t be able to by mistake print a gun. If you have children in your home, say your kid—who wants to print a water gun—doesn’t end up printing a real gun. It’s the same thing if you download a movie, you don’t know what you get. A child could download a porn movie just because it’s called Bambi. I think it’s the same with a water gun.”

 

For his part, Cody Wilson, the head of Defense Distributed, says he has no problem with a company employing DRM-style blocking to prevent the printing of firearms.

 

“Anyone can use the files for any purpose,” he told Ars. “This guy used the files to create a library of forbidden objects. In a free market, anyone should be able to purchase this software if they don't want their kids to print guns. My question for this gentleman is: [which company] will [promote] this software first?”
