Day 717: Fallout 4 still isn’t out yet.
Little more than a bandit, and without any scruples, the reactionary Gen. José Pérez Castro was a backer of President Huerta in the Mexican Revolution, and allowed his men to run wild in the countryside, raping and pillaging. Shortly after Huerta’s resignation, Castro was captured by Constitutionalist forces under Gen. Alberto Torres fighting over the city of León, and promptly executed. Photos of his gruesome demise were widely disseminated as a warning to similar reactionary bandits.

This is what I call hangover medication. SummerBoyz take heed!
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.
THE UMBRELLA REVOLUTION
We don’t need any tear gas, we’re crying already.
風雨中抱緊自由。 Brace our freedom among the storm.
It is Day 3 since 28th September 2014, the day Hong Kong Police threw Tear Gas to protestors.
Hong Kong citizens are fighting for democracy to select our own Chief Executive. We don’t want China’s claws on our back and hands on our throat.
Please, Tumblr, reblog and spread the word like wildfire.
SAVE HONG KONG.
DO NOT LET HONG KONG FALL.

I'm writing this staring at the mess the police left for me, in a bit of a fog. After 6 months of stalking and threats against my life my stalker finally snapped and decided to kick my door in and make good on his promise. Out of fear, the past month I had begun sleeping with a chair propped against my front door, to give myself a few extra precious seconds in case of emergency. I shudder to think how differently things might've turned out had I not barricaded the door. I awoke around 1:15 am to the sound of the door giving way after one kick followed by the sounds of my stalker struggling to dislodge the chair while forcing his way inside. I jumped up and grabbed the gun I've learned to do everything even shower with. I stood at the top of my stairs and fired twice. Hitting him in the chest, I hear his scream, his disbelief that I'd stood up for myself.. 0 to 100 in milliseconds. I've never been so afraid in my life. I do not know if he is living, but I do know the police have him and that's what helps the most. For months of him evading the police I began to question whether he was unstoppable. Untraceable. Houdini, he would murder me and get away with it. As of now I'm in a haze of guilt, surprise, relief and disbelief. I shook as the canines drag him out from his hiding place under a bush. I survived, where so many people do not. Holy shit, I survived.

I cant thank you guys enough. Everyone can be a critic and the fact still remains, you dont know what you will do in a situation until its presented in front of you. Those who believe there was other things to be done have never had someone tell you that you no longer deserve to draw breath and mean it. And for the 'shouldve fired a warning shot' folks: There are no warning shots, a gun is a deadly force, you only pull that trigger if you are in fear for your life and all other methods of deterring are gone. When he kicked my door in, there was no longer a deterrent preventing harm. Warning shots are dangerous and could hurt the unintended. This is not a wild west movie. That's what responsible gun ownership is. Ill update once things have calmed down a bit I promise. Ill write back to everyone and after being isolated for so long, anyone who wants to be friends, I am always accepting those.
things gun control advocates won’t talk about.
Good job. Defending one’s own life is one of the hardest and most life changing things someone could possibly go through. Glad to hear you’re okay.
Look me in the eyes and tell me you’d take away that woman’s right to defend herself, and I’ll see you for a rape enabler.
and for just a moment, all was right in the world.
find a booty you can worship daily and settle down.
