    These count as ghost guns these days.. AND that cap grenade is a destructive device in the eyes of the ATF.

    So when I was a kid I was digging through my dads old bedroom closet at my grandparents house and I found his cap bomb, along with a bunch of other cool shit from the 50s. Wildest shit I found was a "flat board radio" he made as a kid, the messed up part was when he showed me how it worked, the damn thing still worked. He attached a battery and started tuning in radio stations.

    Pussy.

    Jarts or nothing!

    That does bring back of memory, though. I had totally forgotten about those snap cap bombs. When my son had his Nerf guns, though, I took one of those big bullet versions and drilled a hole in the front nose cap so you could put one of those Black cat throw snaps into the front. When they hit a brick wall, they would actually snap.

    If I remember correctly, some guy had one of these Lego guns up in Canada in his office and somebody in the building across the way saw it and ended up getting the whole building swatted.
    The Second Amendment ACKNOWLEDGES our right to own and bear arms that are in common use that can be used for lawful purposes. The arms can be restricted ONLY if subject to historical analogue from the founding era or is dangerous (unsafe) AND unusual.

    It's that simple.

    You could also fold 6-8 paper caps into the bomb for a little more bang. Of course at that point most kids figure out that an entire roll of paper caps + a hammer = even bigger bang. But that was an expensive thing to do.

    Funny how all of us grew up with cap pistols, toy guns and video games but somehow we never ended up shooting up our school even though 25% of the kids were kicking our asses for lunch money and grins the other 25% we couldn't stand for various reasons. Even those of us who had real guns at home in our bedroom with all the ammo we needed never seriously considered such things.

    But let a middle school kid get disappointed in life somehow today and it's f'ing on.

    My son has a large Lego collection mostly consisting of Star Wars. He figured out how to make a couple different "pistols" that use rubber bands to shoot the cylinder-shaped Legos. Nothing full auto like in that book listed last page though.

    You never had an electronics kit as a kid? Making a radio and then an amplified radio were classic projects, along with a spark-gap transmitter for Morse code. There was an advanced version I either never built or never got working; FM maybe? Was his tube or transistor?
