Bad ideas

Artist builds a survival shelter. And probably builds an illegal short barreled shotgun. I hope you have a tax stamp for that. And, for the record, I wouldn’t fire it.

    I have that manual. It’s good as a curio.

    I have made a zipgun from a car aerial and a pen gun in machine shop. My father made a “Dane gun” — muzzleloader from a piece of pipe with crushed matches as the primer and propellant.

    But the bottom line is … get as good a gun as you can get from somebody you trust to know how to make guns.

    Person says he’s “blessed” to have an unusually patient and understanding wife who doesn’t mind that the project has thus far run more than $30,000.

    And yet, he’s passing the hat because he can’t afford a Mossberg 500. Wah.

  3. Standard Mischief Says:

    I wouldn’t fire it either. He’s checking headspace and fitting a firing pin with a live round while the barrel points down to his toes.

    One really good way to survive the coming disaster is to build a survival shelter, then heavily publicize it so that everyone within driving distance knows about it and can come stay with you.

    They’ll make good sources of protien. That is if you arm yourself with something better that a diy shotgun.

    It’s OK because he’s an artist. You know, the first amendment exception to second amendment violations.

    Gotta love that he has already admitted to planning on being a looter, what with carefully mapping out (and the publicizing that map) his neighbors’ resources…

    But by far the coolest — and the accessory most likely to keep you out of Person’s backyard — is the homemade shotgun attached to the robot sentry.

    That looks like a nice indictment there. It’s not just a booby trap but an intelligent booby trap. I guess if you’re going to make an illegal shotgun, you might as well set it up in an illegal booby trap, intelligently of course.

    If I spent $30k on a Survival Shelter, I’d make damn sure it was tall enough so I didn’t hit my head on the ceiling, and have a Doorway big enough so I could push several people into it w/o having to crawl on my belly. By the way, where’s the Back door if you have to Bug Out of it if your “Homemade Terminator” gets shot up by some 30-06 AP and the Sledge Hammers come a’knockin? Frackkin’ Idiot like this gives Preppers a Bad Name.

    Makes me kinda want TEOTWAWKI, just to weed out this stupid dead-wood…

    Phelps says “Itís OK because heís an artist. You know, the first amendment exception to second amendment violations.”

    Uh, just what 2nd amendment violation is there, except perhaps the entire 1934 National Firearms Act?

    A serious question, that doesn’t apply to me:

    If his “automatic robot sentry with a shotgun” automatically tracks people and shoots them, it is a trap.

    What does general law say if the sentry tracks the intruder, and dings an alarm inside, then the guy inside has to hit buttons to disable the safety and fire?

    Here on Long Island, if the intruder isn’t inside my home, carrying a gun, that I can see, then I’m not allowed to shoot anyway, so this is pretty much an academic question.

  13. notaclue Says:

    In my state, the robot sentry would probably qualify as an illegal set gun.

  14. Dr_Mike Says:

    Oh, my bad, the guy’s a serious survival type.

    I just saw his vid on making tinder from excess currency.

    Do I want to know what the jar of vaseline is for? I mean, it’s a firestarter page, but still, are you sure?

    If he were making tinder out of old newspapers I wouldn’t quite have this question. Here’s a hint: Spend your excess currency on printer paper, or newspaper, now. If you just buy and store the local sunday fishwrap, then (a) the coupons will probably pay for the paper, and (b) you’ll have a supply of toilet paper to go with your 5 gallon bucket lid crapper system.

    Seriously though, I do give him points for at least thinking about sanitation.

    Hopefully, it will kill all intruders…otherwise, the liability lawsuits will put him out on the street.

  16. Phelps Says:

    Uh, just what 2nd amendment violation is there, except perhaps the entire 1934 National Firearms Act?

    That’s exactly what I had in mind.
