Evil Mothers

Unread postAuthor: Tater Salad » Thu Jan 25, 2007 4:21 pm

Well I have a friend who wants to make a nice spudgun, but his mom, who's a lawyer, argues with him that it would be considered a firearm/weapon and that it could be classified as a pipe bomb. I'm trying to find some sort of documents that he could show his mom to prove her wrong.

Does anybody else have or know evil mothers like this? Feel free to share.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Tell him to make a pneumatic, they’re airarms, and by FEDERAL law, cannot be called a firearm by local governments, I think, I’m going to check that now…

Shes probably just scared for your safety and trying to protect you, yet in reality if theyre built right theyre incredibly safe,just tell her how you want to build one and mabey she will realize she was wrong and that they are safe, and just have to remember that "to make a discovery first you must make a mistake" (i dont know who said it but they were a genius).

sorry insomniac, i edited my post to add a sentence but i messed up :oops: but its back again :lol:

And i agree homemade flashpowder you just want to discover without the mistake, even though it rarely works out that way

I don’t know, I’ve had that happen too, I’ve also had half my post vanish for no good reason, oh and topics keep vanishing and reappearing (I click the link and it says something about topic vanished and go back and click it again and it’s back.).
Oh and about the federal law on airguns, I can’t find it…but I’ll keep looking…
