Well, I finally got around to posting this.

Other than that, there seems to be a massive overload of n00b topics lately.

There's probably a lot of stuff I left out, but you'll find it eventually.

Just recently Ragnarok (and maybe some others) have been working on the wiki a bit.

Twitch and Chaos left.

D_Hall just posted something about the "pipe dream" from SGTC, and apparently it's going to get built.

Rag posted HEALand is working on plans for some sort of automatic combustion/hybrid. Also rumors of a coilgun/electrothermal hybrid.
Someone did make an "exploding wire" plasma gun, can't remember where it is.

SPG is apparently planning on an auto hybrid.

BTB made an awesome looking mable machine gun, but I don't think he's posted a video yet. He's also trying to start a business.

JSR has posted several full-auto design/plans, as well as a desert camo cake.

There was a small competition a couple weeks ago ("Best shot on video").

I upgraded the piston hybrid and am working on a small improvement currently, but the weather isn't allowing me to do much outside. I have fired at 7x (As someone said, I had a steel reducer crack due to a piston impact, so I replaced the fitting and added a bumper and it's been fine).
Also, I posted a little gauss gun and a gun made out of cardboard. Not really news though.

This isn't revolutionary, but it looks cool.

Yup, me and some others have been trying to - Me, MrCrowley, Jimmy101, Pilgrimman, Davidvaini and DYI, looking at the recent changes list.

Rag posted HEALand is working on plans for some sort of automatic combustion/hybrid. Also rumors of a coilgun/electrothermal hybrid.

HEAL was posted late October, but the other stuff may have been after that date.

The combustion/hybrid minigun is still being thought out, but cost may prove quite a issue, because it will probably need lots of parts machining. The plasma gun is going to be a long way off, most likely years, but plans are still being looked at.

However, I still have my share of mad plans. The high efficiency gauss pistol is still being designed, and the ideas for the high power propane fueled cart/buggy engine are looking good - if you like steampunk.

Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?
