Is the community conversation entirely on facebook? (You can DM me if you'd rather not post publicly about where an interested party can keep track of the goings on)
Substantially.
  • There's DEFCAD itself, which is mostly inactive: DEFCAD
  • There's a closed group for owners and potential owners Defense Distributed GhostGunner Milling Machine Open Group
  • There's a closed group for GG2 owners. Defense Distributed CNC Milling Machine Help
  • There's a closed group for developers. ??

I have been told that there are backups on MeWe in case FaceBook shuts these groups down.

Getting the 80% from DD, it's $20 less expensive than the one with jig from P80. That means you break-even at 10 completed frames (assuming zero loss).

If the argument is that the 2nd exists for us to protect ourselves from all threats, then the target market for this could include a person who likes to be prepared and wants to set aside a handful of untraceable firearms. A person in that position might think that the ability to leave the machine running while they do other things is worth the marginal cost. This is especially true if the same machine can finish other firearms as well.
Sure, you can buy P80's without the jig, but I assume that's because you bought your initial one as the set with the jig. The way I see this, you can buy a $20 hand jig or a $200 automated jig, provided you have the GG2.

Prep is fine, but how many does one really need, and wouldn't a hand jig actually be more useful for true SHTF situations? imagine power is not an option, but you happen to have a crank drill handy or appropriate sized awls (with applied heat and pressure). I'd go with the $20 jig all day long for survival packing.

I guess this is what I get for leaving the facebook reservation.

Not pretending it's a good plan, but I imagine a person who's getting that many ducks in a row would endeavor to have them ready and tested long before they were needed.

Again, the benefit of CNC would be that you can hit "go" and walk away, with a completed part/setup waiting for your return. Obviously, it's a little more complicated than this, but someone who wants to put in the time to figure it out could get pretty close to that level of reliability.

Why would you use the GG for P80s? You can do one in half an hour with a dremel and some sandpaper....

Honestly, the jig isn't even necessary for the P80 glocks, even though every frame comes with a jig.

So WIRED writers that are a danger to themselves and others can knock one out and pen fear-pieces about how awful it is that we can do this at home.

And because you can.

Anyone else find it super creepy that state govs are effectively blocking websites for their subjects? This aint china

We live in a state that mostly blocks people from lawfully buying a legal product from other states, so this type of communism shouldn't be too much of a surprise.
