Detectable by airport xray machines… still costs more than you make in a month:

I’ve been getting various sintered metal prototypes for about 2 years now (*hipster tone*), so I find it more than a bit surprising that this is THE FIRST gun to ever be produced using a machine like that.  I really hope this company was just the first that had the balls to tell the world, where as someone probably tried it a long time ago and was like OH NOES THINK OF THE CHILDREN, then never spoke of it again.

Double-Barrel-1911-2Unsurprisingly CNN has not been freaking out about this (as far as I know).  I think it’s safe to say that’s because it’s metal… plastic is more exciting to them because it’s associated with dodging detection and kids printing them at home.

Good choice on the 1911 though right?  I just pray they go full retard and make a quadruple 1911 soon for maximum trolling, none of this weak-ass double 1911 bullshit pictured left.

One interesting thing about this company Solid Concepts is that since they have a FFL manufacturing license they can print guns and sell them apparently. Will they print a firearm any goofball designs in SolidWorks regardless of how unsafe the design looks? Possibly… it’s a free country I suppose. Thinning of the herd if your derp costs you your life.

Thoughts?

The Porcelain Pistols are replicas of James Bond’s Walther PPK and its contemporary sister, the P99,with friendly permission of Carl Walther Inc.The fragile weapon, hand-painted in the style of classic tableware motifs, liesnext to your coffee and cake, asking to be picked up. Its coolness andcomfortable grip increase the qualms of the user, leaving him in a quandary between the pleasure of luxury and violence.

Unfortunately the artist didn’t work the ubiquitous “Glock 7” into the project. My guess is that she was probably paid off by the TSA because it would evade their metal detectors.

Damn that band knows how to make a terrifying album cover though.

If they made this type of infantry experience available to civilians as a weekend camp, I think it would be pretty popular. I’m thinking rich business men would be down for this kind of adrenaline rush.

They should start the training out with an R. Lee Ermey “Full Metal Jacket” style reaming.

Damn good idea to have such realistic training. Better to learn from your mistakes in training then do potentially die or become a liability in real combat.
