I would not fire a gun made

I would not fire a gun made by FDM, SLA, SLS, or any of a wide variety of rapid prototyping processes. I like my hands and the rest of my body too much to do something silly like that.

Why not just make a gun the old fashioned way? With a mill and a lathe? Modernize it with a CNC mill and CNC lathe. Table top models are not unaffordable comparably.

The whole 3D printed gun is just hype and nonsense as far as I am concerned. I have access to nice FDM machine. I know many places to have stuff made out of various rapid prototyping materials. I know the processes well. This is just something to say it was done. Like making a gun out of carved wood or something. It's just to say it can be done. Nothing more. Nice to see the rulers get all hyper about it though.
