Slum up the net! Don't mind the insanity, it happens.

I support the gamer and the gamer is me.

Authorities have recovered “substantial explosive devices,” including two pipe bombs in their search for a Pennsylvania cop killer in the Pocono Mountains.



My father likes to think the guy planted so many deceptive decoys around the area and has evaded the cops and is long gone.

College fun

Got assigned a group project(eco science) the other day on Marcellus shale , group make up was of 3 people. two of us grew up in PA all our life pretty much despised New Yorkers/New Jerseyans (mostly out of their driving habits) 

Continuing.. 3rd member of our group is a 50 year old women who is trying to better herself/trying to prove to herself that she can. (bravo to that even if its a law degree mine you) but she had no idea what Marcellus shale was basically about. Which is flabbergasting to most Pennsylvanians since its in the news a lot. We both basically told her to look it up when she can. 

This is where it went fun. (As I am a sarcastic sob 80% of the time)

She said she just moved here from New York and didn’t know about the subject. Out of personal reaction to that I blurt out “Ah, I hate New York.” She then got all disgruntled and said “I’m offended by that.” Oh woe is me I thought to myself as I never expected someone to ever say that outright before. I simple answer with “Thats good.” Escalating she says she hates Pennsylvania, jokingly I say she can go back if she likes. She gets a bit more flustered and backs off the topic. Good days.

WOOOOOOOO
NEW GUN LAWS IN CALIFORNIA
WE’RE GETTING SOMEWHERE

WOOOOOO

MORE POLICE BRUTALITY IN CALIFORNIA 

MORE ARMED GANGS IN CALIFORNIA

WE’RE GETTING SOMEWHERE

…somewhere closer to putting a wall around Kommiefornia and letting all the people there sort it out Snake Plissken style.

What is Ghost Gunner?

Ghost Gunner is a miniature CNC machine designed to automatically manufacture publicy created designs with nearly zero user interaction. No prior CNC knowledge or experience is required to manufacture from design files. Defense Distributed’s first design is the venerable AR-15 lower receiver. Ghost Gunner automatically finds and aligns your 80% lower receiver to the machine, with simple installation instructions, point and click software and all required tools. Just follow a few simple instructions to mount your 80% lower receiver, tighten a couple screws (with simple tools we provide), and on day one, Ghost Gunner can help you legally manufacture unserialized firearms in the comfort of your own home.

As shipped, Ghost Gunner can manufacture any mil-spec 80% AR-15 lower receiver that already has the rear take down well milled out. Lowers with non-mil-spec trigger guards that are otherwise mil-spec are also compatible. Defense Distributed recommends using the 7075 Ares Armor Raw 80% Lower AR-15 Billet, available for purchasehere.

welp, I know what I am spending my money on the next time I have a $999-$1500 kicking around.

Guns.com:

WarFairy, the same designer that developed the Charon series of 3D-printable AR-15 lower receivers, has developed a new 3D-printable lower receiver. The lower stands out in a big way: it’s a bullpup design for use with bufferless uppers.

While there aren’t many upper receivers that don’t require a buffer assembly to function, there are a few out there including rimfire uppers and the Faxon ARAK-21, a non-standard centerfire upper that uses a gas piston system.

WarFary calls this the Hanuman series, and Hanuman is important because it showcases how 3D printing can be used to innovate and develop new firearm designs easily, affordably and quickly.

7 - Receiver Sectioning for Printability like the Charon, the Hanuman is designed to be printed in sections and assembled and cemented together to complete the lower. WarFairy’s receivers are made in small sections to accommodate smaller hobbyist 3D printers. The Hanuman is designed to be printed with ABS plastic.

Because the design is modular it can be lengthened with buttpad extensions to adjust the length of pull. All of the sections are overbuilt for added strength.

The Hanuman comes with a warning. WarFairy considers the design to be a work in progress, saying “It is highly experimental. There is no safety. Sixteen-inch barreled uppers require [a] 3-inch pad to be used as displayed in renders for overall length legality. Print and fire at own risk.”

Federal law requires that rifles must measure in at 26 inches at a minimum, otherwise they are regulated as short-barreled rifles under the National Firearms Act.

Although the Hanuman has some limitations, notably that cheese-grater of a cheekpiece, they can be worked around. The flattop receiver can be covered with rail panels for comfort and optics can be easily lifted to a more natural height with risers.

The charging handle is going to be a bit harder to find a work-around for, but it’s not as if anyone’s going to use an at-home 3D-printed gun for anything other than a range toy. with the right upper, the charging handle can be made a non-issue. Again, we’re looking at you, ARAK-21.

The Faxon ARAK really is the perfect centerfire upper for the Hanuman lower. The big, easy reason is that it doesn’t use a buffer assembly. Its recoil system is entirely contained in the upper, above the bolt carrier. The ARAK is inspired in-part by the AK and uses a similar gas piston design. Another great reason to use the ARAK-21 with the Hanuman  is that it has a monolithic handguard. It’s generally not a great idea to mount an optic on a free-floating handguard as they can loosen, which is bad for any type of repeatable zero. With this upper you can mount a red dot or even a scope anywhere on the receiver without worrying about accuracy.

This is a far cry from the Liberator, the original 3D printed gun. The Hanuman, like the Charon before it, is intended to showcase what 3D printing is capable of, that it is a designer’s playground. For more details about the Hanuman project head over to the discussions on Reddit and DefCAD.

The world of home gunsmithing continues to grow every day thanks to developers like WarFairy. And that 3D printing is not going to go away.
