Electromagnetic Coilgun Doesn’t Need a License Robert Wilsford created an Electromagnetic Coilgun from some very common items that can be found easily on the websites, so you can also try this and make a nice gadget sitting at your home sweet home. I like guns a lot, but we can’t keep them at our homes without a license but this gun doesn’t need any license such as the Steampunk Coilgun. Well! If you are arsenal lover like me, needless to say, you would dare to make this gun. The outer body of the coilgun is made from wood, plexiglass and metal while in the interior electromagnetic coils have been used coils to push a ferromagnetic projectile (here round ball like bullet of steel) at a great velocity through a barrel. In tools you would need a Solderer, Pliers, Wire Cutters, Wire Stripper, Scissors, Glue Gun and a Flat Head Screw Driver. In case you are interested in doing more cool experiments, you can make Clockwork Crocodile Is the Steampunk Age Reptile, or Steve Jobs Cheese Head. Via: Hacknmod

Why I Carry a 9MM Handgun Why I Carry a 9MM Handgun The other day I ran into an acquaintance (who I barely know) and he told me that he’d just purchased a .45 caliber handgun. He said he loved the gun, but the only problem was he couldn’t shoot it. Next, he asked me what type of gun I carried and I told him my carry gun was the Glock 19 9mm. I had a nice laugh, especially since this fellow asked me to give him a private shooting lesson. So why exactly do I carry a 9mm and why do I think you should too? Well, it’s not because I don’t love a .45 and the feel of my Springfield 1911 in my hand. And the fact is, if I’m ever involved in a self-defense shooting situation, I have the odd feeling my “target” is not going to be standing perfectly still like it is when I’m at the gun range. And it’s for this very reason I carry the 9mm. You see, the 9mm lets me get off a quicker burst of shots because it has less recoil and enables me to get my gun back on target quicker. Remember, shot placement is what’s important.

SOFEX: The Business of War | VICE News The Dillon Aero M134D Gatling Gun, a “six-barreled, electrically driven machine gun chambered in 7.62mm NATO that fires at a fixed rate of 3,000 shots per minute.” It was one of countless killing machines featured at SOFEX. Photo courtesy of Dillon Aero. “You know, it’s weird, man. It’s like everybody’s real cordial with each other. On arriving at SOFEX, I was reminded of when I was a punk kid and it was fashionable to say things like, “The military-industrial complex is taking over the world.” SOFEX takes place every two years in Amman, and is largely the brainchild of Jordan’s king, Abdullah II, who has a penchant for special operations and massive displays of artillery. The Ultimate Warrior Competition is sponsored by KASOTC, a “counterterrorism training facility” in Jordan founded by King Abdullah. I’ve been to hundreds of depressing media trade shows, and SOFEX’s salespeople are no different from the rest, except that their wares are designed to destroy things and kill people. Lt.
