You could also begin by posting in the discussion areas (Showcase areas are for completed guns and cannons.)

Another good reason for a plans section. Have a look around and in the wiki.

You could begin by worshipping the ground we walk on...

Or you could read the wiki, whatever trips your trigger. But really, real the wiki, browse showcase forums for ideas, browse the how-to forums for, well, how-to information. Be sure to ask questions about what you don't understand.

The vortex description in the wiki is kinda lame and outdated, just make a cloud to start, they are super easy.

Are you guys sure he wants to build an auto? Maybe he wants to do a single-shot gun...

EDIT: AH!!! Spawn of Satan! Spud bux limit for the day. GAh, but I'm so close to being able to change my title. Blast it all...

First off, in my signature is a link to a few safety rules, read ‘em over.

Twitch, my philosophy is:
"If you're to dumb to figure it out, you don’t need it."
Plans make it to easy for a complete idiot to build a weapon that he/she/it doesn’t need, and won’t know how to safely use. And will therefore potentially injure and/or kill someone or damage and/or utterly destroy a person, place, or thing.

You have a point. Though its their own fault for not treating it as a proper firearm.
