Just think what American home workshops could produce. The noise and muzzle flash from one that shoots a rifle round must be pretty intimidating. These really run the gamut. The problem is, unless you are local and knowledgeable and also personally familiar with the gunsmiths in your community and their products, it is hard to know which weapons are truly viable and which are not outside of the more obvious external features, finish, construction, etc.
Look if we would ban all firearms criminals couldnt have them.

Come to think of it, why not contribute an article or two about your personal experiences with weapons like these? The end result would be some guns that are made to adequate metallurgical and tolerance standards for their intended purpose, while the majority desl be of questionable quality and functionality, to put it mildly.
Hv small fortune in India. Perhaps some tastefull engraving? Those cannot possibly be safe to fire… Not katya, anyway. I do hope you will seriously consider this proposal. It gives some insight into types of weapons and unique ballistics of these. Wonderful pictures, great article.

Many thanks and much appreciation in advance for your understanding and response.
Some of the little autos look pretty impressive. I was thinking — does anyone from the http: This being far beyond what the average individual can afford, the alternative cheap and disposable country made pistol costs between merely and INR — the obvious choice for many. However, to an unarmed or disarmed victim faced with the threat of being shot, the psychological factor alone is probably worth the risk to the user.
Good personal testimony, Henry — I sincerely hope that you will continue to keep us informed and aware of the circumstances surrounding such firearms. Not to shoot them, but to put them on a display as a testament to the ineffectiveness of gun control. This is all NRA propaganda………. Lemme just hammer this barrel a little bit straighter for you. It takes a great deal of effort and is essentially a labor of love, and I would like to extend my appreciation for your work!
Looking at them some of these seem to be more like home made hand grenades than pistols if you get my meaning. Pretty nice handguns there, considering they look to be made from railroad spikes and water pipe.
The insight would not only be extremely rare but also invaluable to one and all.
