Working as a Linus Torvalds of DIY weapons

Today we speak with Jeff Rodriguez, who aims to be the Linus Torvalds of the 3d gun printing world. By putting his designs into the public domain and using the Linux style distribution model, he’s adding fuel to the fire of distributed manufacturing. Jeff is best known for a 3D printed shotgun, built on his 12k Liberator platform. This design platform offers various calibers such as .357 and .44 Magnum rounds in a pump action zigzag revolver. We also speak with Jeff about the risks of him not being pseudonymous, his 3D printed shotgun shells, and the progress of DIY ammo. Jeff is a presenter at the Bear Arms N’ Bitcoin 2020 conference.
