  1. It always amazes me how people that have never traveled in 3rd world countries are shocked by the means of transportation that have been used successfully for many years in these countries. They always point to how safe our transportation systems seem to them without any thought that we spend dollars per passenger mile for public transportation while due to necessity other countries spend very few pennies per mile. A good idea of how this works is the California high speed rail system that in its 400 mile trip will actually only travel 150 miles at above normal rail speed, and will require massive public subsidy for every passenger and is doomed to economic failure from the start. It will be near the top of list of government boondoggles financed by the tax payers.
    There are no end to the failures of public transportation schemes.

    1. It depends if you need machining (Ghost Gunner from Defense distributed to finish 80% firearm parts), or plastic, additive versions. Dremel even has one.
      It also depends on what you are printing – think laser printers v.s. inkjet – color v.s. monochrome, water resistant vs runny. That and things are changing rapidly so that even if I knew exactly what you wanted, I would have said something different 3 months ago than today. Check out adafruit.com or other maker sites for the latest.

    2. I have an M3D that I’m quite happy with. They have a number of different printers at various price points. You can get a small, cheap one to experiment with and graduate up to larger, more capable and more expensive ones. I’ll note none are suitable for 3D printing of firearms. However, you really need some experience with 3D printing before diving in the deep end of the pool.

    3. I’m on my 3rd personal 3D printer and at work we are on ur 4th generation of them.
      For the $$ the Prusa i3-MK3 is the best 3D printer you can buy. It’s quality and durability rival printers that sell in the $2500 to $3,00 range. Assembled it’s available for under $1.000


      If wanting to dip you toe in that world there are some decent printers available for under $350, but the trade off compared to the Prusa is pretty much constant tinkering to make it work the way you want. The news for some of these units there is a thriving network of other owners that are available to help, because the factory will not help much

      Take a look at – Monoprice Maker Select 3D Printer v2 $300

      Make Magazine really does the best job of reviewing 3D printers, check them out.

  2. Regarding the justice department settlement, isn’t a basic tenet of the Second Amendment that citizens may keep arms to resist tyranny in a military manner? Does this agreement open up sporting firearms to severe regulation or elimination because they are “not military in nature” ? Are the trees blocking our view of the forest?

  3. George Will once researched the 2nd Amendment and concluded that not only did it mean what the NRA said it meant, but citizens should have equivalent arms to an infantry soldier’s issue weapon.

    Being George Will, he further concluded that we should get rid of the 2nd Amendment.

  4. OSINT – Had several neighbors trying to gain support online to get the local police put in a camera in my tiny no crime neighborhood this week. Needless to say, I am packing to leave. I’ve offered free copies of Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm to anyone in my neighborhood who would like to read it. No takers so far. I do declare, I am shocked and dismayed! Ya’ think they voted for the left?
