Thread: **Homemade weapons**

    Higher powered airsofr can pack even more of a wallop, up to 3 or 4 or even more football fields in 1 second, of course these cost well in the hundreds(of u.s. Dollars) or more, or less depending on your currency, and if you country has banned sale of these, spring powered ones are really easy to make, out of pens, or pvc pipes, just use essentially the instructions for a standard zip gun, just without the firing pin, instead you just need a small flat surface for the bb, (which you can easily make from lead), to rest on.

    Anything that moves that fast is sure to kill even large animal, or humans in self defense cases.

    Airsoft is not useful as a defensive weapon, simply because of the low density of the projectiles. Even if the plastic pellets traveled as fast as real bullets, they would not even penetrate clothes. You could put an eye out, but not much more. They are DESIGNED to be entirely non-lethal. Besides, it's easier to make a shotgun that can actually kill than to make an airsoft gun.

    Take a look at the example below. It's a simple homemade 12 gauge shotgun that only has two moving parts -- the trigger, and the bolt which is released when the trigger is pulled, slamming forward under force of a spring to fire the shell. Of course, if you don't have a gun it's likely you don't have shotgun shells either, in that case you could do away with the bolt and trigger entirely and make it into a hand cannon with no moving parts at all, using matchheads for gunpowder and a rocket igniter or a piece of steel wool with a 9V battery to set it off. There's some US Army manuals that were posted a little earlier in this thread that show several ways to do that sort of thing.

    If you shot a bunch of airsoft pellets out of it though, even using a lot of gunpowder, it would be completely useless as a defensive or hunting weapon. You'd have to put something fairly heavy in it, like nails, rocks or fishing weights.

    Talking "Anti-Bear" suit

    This isn't exactly a weapon, but it is a homemade defensive device. Kind of ungainly though, I laughed my ass off when I saw the last suit.

    It would sure be interesting if someone made one that could stop rifle bullets, although it would be really heavy. If you wore one of these babies under it however, the weight wouldn't be much of an issue. Unless of course you fell off a boat. You'd be like Iron Man, just a bit weaker and unable to fly

    This is pretty cool. Someone actually built the crossbow I posted plans for earlier in this thread. Looks like it's more accurate than the Chinese (chu-ko-nu) design, too. The advantage to this is that it might be legal where firearms are not.

    Furthermore, lasers are one of our most powerful assets, but the government, FDA, has been restricting them to the point of uselessness as a weapon. As always, buyer beware as lasers can blind quickly if used carelessly. If I want to carry a 1000 mw laser with me as a weapon, I should be freely to be able to do so...

    Now, as far as safety glasses for lasers, does anyone know of a material which can filter the common wavelengths found in red, blue, and green lasers? * Carrying multiple glasses around isn't practical.

    * Red ~ 600-1000nm would be the most important ...

    I guess the next thing government will outlaw is legos, because they can be used to build weapons, and they are a choking hazard. Again, it comes down to the point where we ask ourselves what is the intended function of the government, to keep us Free, or to keep us Safe?

    As defined in section 921(a) (3) of Title 18, United States Code (USC) the term "firearm" means --



    * (A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive;
    * (B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon;
    * (C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or
    * (D) any destructive device. Such term does not include an antique firearm.

    As defined in 26 USC subsection 5845(f) (2) the term destructive device includes any type of weapon by whatever name known which will, or which may readily be converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellent, the barrel or barrels of which have a bore of more than one-half inch in diameter, except a shotgun or shotgun shell which the Secretary or his delegate finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes; and (3) any combination of parts either designed or intended for use in converting any device into a destructive device as defined in subparagraphs (1) and (2) and from which a destructive device may be readily assembled. The term 'destructive device' shall not include any device which is neither designed nor redesigned for use as a weapon; any device, although originally designed for use as a weapon, which is redesigned for use as a signaling, pyrotechnic, line throwing, safety, or similar device; surplus ordnance sold, loaned, or given by the Secretary of the Army pursuant to the provisions of section 4684(2), 4685, or 4686 of title 10 of the USC; or any other device which the Secretary of the Treasury or his delegate finds is not likely to be used as a weapon, or is an antique or is a rifle which the owner intends to use solely for sporting purposes.

    It is unlawful for anyone to make or possess a destructive device which is not registered in accordance with the provisions of the National Firearms Act.

    We have previously examined that certain muzzle loading devices known as "potato guns." These potato guns are constructed from PVC plastic tubing. They use hair spray or a similar aerosol substance for a propellant, and have some type of spark ignitor. We have determined that these devices, as described, are not firearms provided that they are used solely for launching potatoes for recreational purposes. However, any such devices which are used as weapons or used to launch other forms of projectiles may be firearms and destructive devices as defined.

    Default Homemade Rocket Engines and Rockets (Legal to actually build and launch)

    As far as I know, rocket engines like this are completely legal in most places if you use cardboard or plastic tubes instead of metal in their construction. Check your state and local laws of course, and beware that the feds could ban them at any time. The "homemade weapons" potential of these things is obvious, and of course using them to carry any kind of warhead is extremely illegal, so don't do it, except maybe in your imagination.

    Homemade "Estes-Type" Hobby Rocket Engines (more powerful)
    http://shadow.yak.net/125

    Homemade "Whistle Rockets" (Fireworks Type)
    http://www.skylighter.com/fireworks/...le-rockets.asp


    It's likely cheaper to mass-produce a bunch of these instead of buying the Estes engines they sell at hobbyshops, unless you only plan on launching one or two with your kids. One plus is that you can make them as big as you want (but once they are bigger than a certain size you might need a license, check the laws again)





    Once you have made the engines, you can make a rocket body out of non-metallic materials and launch it. It must have at least a streamer or some kind of parachute that deploys to slow it down before it hits the ground so that it doesn't do damage to people or property.

    Default Simpler way to make a wooden bow - power tools!

    Most guides to making wooden bows talk about using drawknives and spoke-shaves, which aren't easy to find or to use for a beginner. This guide describes how to use power tools to achieve the same effect, and while the result will not be as refined as a bow made the traditional way, it's better than not trying at all.

    Default How NOT to make a shotgun - before and after firing

    Who in their right mind would use plastic PVC pipe? Maybe he was desperate and the Russian mafia was coming for him... or was he trying out for a Darwin Award?

    I'm surprised it didn't blow up worse. Some of the shot might have actually left the muzzle at a fair clip.

    On second thought, it was probably a bored kid who stole some of Daddy's shotgun shells. A desperate man probably wouldn't have time to carve "finger grooves" into the grip and attach a "tac light".

    The underground Chinese gunsmith who made this fearsomely awkward revolver-cannon-shotgun-boat-anchor thing actually stamped "MADE IN USA" and the Beretta logo on it, in the hopes that some doofus would pay him more because of that. Wonder if it worked? (The fraud as well as the firearm)

    I don't see any cylinder locking method, so I would deem it unsafe to fire. Revolvers are not suited to be homemade. Pepperboxes, on the other hand, are almost as good and while they aren't as pretty they are much easier to contruct safely.

    The "Taylor KO formula" was developed by John Taylor. John Talyor was an extremely experienced African hunter, his formula was based on killing thousands of large game animals with nearly any caliber you can imagine. This formula is designed to give you a relative "killing power" number for a given caliber, the higher the number the better. For example the 44 Magnum, which most handgunners consider an acceptable hunting caliber, with its standard 240gr load gets a Taylor KO of 20. A fairly typical 454 Casull 300gr load gets a 30, your standard 12 gage shotgun slug load gets a 53.

    just a little food for thought.
