McGovern1981, you're either a troll or a nationalist bigot. Either way, you`re irrelevant. But I`ll answer you anyway, because I have some spare time.

Please explain to me how you would use a 3D printer, which prints objects in plastic or metal, to *print* saltpeter, charcoal and sulfur.

I don`t mean to print objects using those materials - that might be possible.

I mean to do what you have claimed is possible - to use the printer to create those materials.

Of course you could buy them and make your own explosive to use as a propellant (just like you could buy some materials and make them into a gun using conventional tools). Nobody has said you can`t, so you`re arguing against something nobody has said. Which is silly and pointless, just like talking to you.

Mr_Ike I realize that but he asked for a propellant and he got one. You could also make something far more destructive than a gun with that I'll let you use your imagination for that one.

Mcgovern, blackpowder is pretty much useless in a semi-automatic weapon. It creates too much by-products and smoke, causing the weapon to jam very rapidly. You'll need a smokeless powder, which is slightly more involved to make.

You've just created a precision piece of machinery and think getting an explosive material is going to be the impassible hurdle?? LOL UK the island of denial......

75% saltpeter (5 parts)
15% charcoal (1 part)
10% sulfur (2/3 of 1 part)
