Starring Paloma (the new director of Defense Distributed):

Awesome to see they are still at it.  4 months is a long time with no videos or really any announcements of any type.  You can google the whole Cody Wilson arrest if you’re not already familiar… I’m still not sure whether or not I should put another layer on my tinfoil hat and polish it again.

I admire Paloma for taking Cody’s place.  I hope moves continue to be made.  Being the head of an organization that a good portion of the country (world even?) hates, plus having many of the states and the federal government lining up to sue every chance they get, and to have to sue them in return for various reasons would stressful to say the least.

This Defense Distributed ghost gun machine is savage:

According to the video, the units people paid for are shipping now.  If you hit up the Ghost Gunner website you’ll see it’s back in “pre-order” mode where you can put a hold on a unit for $250.  I’m not sure if the units are still going for $1200 as they were before, there is no clarification currently on the site and the FAQ is out of date.

When you hit the black screen it’s not the end of the video… there is a dramatic pause until 1:40 then some ominous footage of the ghost gunner HQ I’m assuming and…… wait for it…. wait for it….. a Mark Forged 3D Carbon fiber printer, which the owner of that particular company decided to be a douchebag and “ban” Defense Distributed Cody from purchasing one.  I can’t wait to see what he does with that thing.

Defense-Distributed-Ghost-Gunner-CNCThoughts?  Any of you guys grab one of these Ghost Gun machines?  I feel like $1200 is an acceptable enough price, especially if you went in on one with a few buddies.  The worst part about all this though seems to be timing.  I would have assumed the AR-15 lower market is so far past saturated as of even like a year or two ago.  Who knows though, maybe not! If nothing else, this “machine” is definitely going to shake up some lawmakers.

First it was Fedex & UPS that didn’t want to ship his AR-15 lower making CNCs… now a carbon fiber printer company doesn’t (allegedly) want his money:

He’s putting a $15,000 bounty on one.  Note, that they are worth $5500.  I shit a brick when I first heard about it in his above video.  After watching the video below though, I see it just lays carbon fiber in strips.  Yea that probably does add some strength, but the strength in actual carbon fiber is because it is laid in a lattice.  Still does look cool though as you can see in the below promo video.  I would have liked to see some parts directly off the machine though rather than marketing fluff.

This is very smart of Mark Forged and Cody Wilson, if this was planned.  Even if it wasn’t, look at all the publicity on all the sites this is getting.  I’m starting to get a feel for this controversy advertising thing.

Cryptic trailer with bomber and fighter plane footage:

Defense-Distributed-LogoThe September 30th release date is only about a week away!  I hope they stay true to their 3D printing roots and release something cutting edge that will terrify the anti-gun masses.

Any ideas on what it’s going to be?  I’m going to go on record and say I think it’s going to be something .22 LR related.. maybe even a printable miniature ruger 10/22 handgun design complete with 3d printable barrel.

Our guy Cody Wilson in an interview with ReasonTV:

Holy that guy can talk; intelligent conversation though for sure.  I don’t think I’ve said that many words since 2014 started.

Definitely worth watching to hear some history on the Liberator 3d Printed Pistol, and his new BitCoin project DarkWallet.  We also find out that his legal team is being headed by RKBA law superstar Alan Gura… awesome.

I keep hoping Cody wears one of the Liberator Pistol Builders Club t-shirts I sent him sometime in an interview.

He’s a smart guy… basically playing with the interviewer:

It’s nice the interviewer let him talk… unlike how Piers Morgan would have handled him.

If you don’t already know who Cody Wilson and his group Defense Distributed are, make sure to watch the VICE interview.

Conservatively, I wonder to how many girls Cody has been like “Yea, no big deal but WIRED magazine listed me as one of the 15 most dangerous people in the world“.  Shit, I would ride that until the wheels fell off… without the rhetorical questions he always poses of course.  Cody should be going FULL-KENNY-POWERS with that for maximum effectiveness.

*cough* Liberator pistol builders club *cough*
