Annie, Get Your Gun
I’m not quite sure what you could do with something made from solid aluminum, but you can totally make it now. I mean, it would look pretty cool, I guess. A gun that doesn’t shoot sort of defeats the purpose. If you flip it around it can make for an alright club, but you’d be better off making a bat if you really want to bash some heads. At least it’s shiny.
I feel like a lot of the epic life hack videos on YouTube aren’t even trying to be helpful anymore. This one is cool and everything, but it doesn’t really apply to me, anyone I know, or anyone I have ever met, ever. At least he’s not telling me that I’m supposed to cut banana peels off with a laser instead of using my hands, or that it’s easier to open a soda can if you run it over with your car, or that you can suck Marmite out of a squirrel if you’re lost in the wilderness. Videos like that are silly and I refuse to submit to them. I know how to peel a banana. Don’t tell me how to peel a banana. I don’t care how monkeys do it; they throw their poo and eat bugs. I’m a man, I can peel my own bananas, thank you.
If epic nice life hacks for your life videos got any less helpful they’d become eHow videos, and the world doesn’t need more eHow videos.

What a *brilliant* (/s) way to get yourself killed…PRETEND you’re carrying a gun.
This is actually how to go from 3D printing in plastic to getting metal objects. More precise castings can be done the way jewelers and dental technicians do them – mold them in wax and used the lost-wax process. In fact, this is how bronze statues are made.
BTW, that aluminum gun was probably not meant for carry, but to hint at possibilities. Functional, but limited, handguns have already been 3D molded in plastic. Using this method, the critical, high-wear and pressure-containing parts of the gun can be converted from plastic to metal, improving the life of the weapon.

Yeah…no kidding “just to hint at possibilities”…uh huh…
…that’s why anyone stupid enough to follow it and show it off
could rightly (LEGALLY) have his head blown off.
And *then* to follow it up with a knife/sword?!?
Maybe he should have tried replicating a D-I-L-D-O.
Worst thing that could happen is it gets STUCK….
