RAMBO could revolutionize war: US Army reveals 3D printed grenade launcher that can be made on the battlefield

RAMBO, which stands for Rapid Additively Manufactured Ballistics Ordances, was a collaboration between the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC).

What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

As with all things Daily Mail, I am pretty certain that most of this is bull puckey.
Not only that, but the associated video just won't shut up.

If you don't care for that source, then try this:

or, perhaps this one:

Thank you. I feel much better now.

I can't wait to get started, making one for myself.
It'll only take a week of non-stop printing.

But I'm left with a question: Where shall I get a 3-D printed which does sintered metal?
Evidently, I can't be a high-tech revolutionary without one.

Well, pardner, there seems to be a Catch-22. You can only get a 3-D printer by printing it from a 3-D printer.

What a great Editorial Cartoon that would make.
A 3D Printer, making a 3D Printer, making a 3D Printer, making a 3D Printer, making a 3D Printer, making a 3D Printer,  . . . . . ..
Hows that a visual to make you cross your eyes . . . . .
