I'm don't know much about guns but a plastic gun that fires kind of scares me personally. Here's the BBC's report and the video shows him firing the printed gun for real.
Personally I don't think technology should be used in this way and I agree with someone's comment on the bbc site, that his skills could have been better used.
Well I'll be darned- didn't think it would work.
