Not my cup of tea, but alright. Can you shoot spit balls with those?

Careful

Don't send your kid to school with one of those in his pocket.

He'll get expelled, and maybe popped for CCO - Carrying Concealed Origami.

You must have alot of time on your hands. Seriously, just not my thing either, but I do respect the time you put in to creating these "toys". Very nice job.

The best part of them is, all of them, every last one, is illegal in Kalifornia.
Sad but true. And thats why it's funny.

Mock firearms in Kali must have florescent orange or red paint on the muzzles.

Are you friggin' serious? If you're caught with paper guns, do they send you to paper jail?

I finally set aside some time to open a "pic heavy" thread of guns and all I get is cartoon pics?

This thread is a waste of bandwidth. Please understand it violates no rule to post a fabricated depiction of a firearm, especially in an effort to explain some feature or characteristic of said item. But an entire thread of nothing but paint-shopped depictions? No discussion? No point.

Closed.

Okayyyyyyyyyy. I have to admit I thought the origami comment was a joke and I did not realize that these images are what they are. Really.

So the joke is definitely on me, and there's no way to wiggle out of it.

I am reopening this thread because, having this explained to me by another moderator, I can't in good conscience leave it closed. Actually I think it's neat.

This thread is reopened.

My impression is that these are a

Silverfish's food fest. I'll take the biplanes or even the ship models instead.

I was wondering why it was closed. I also thought it was really cool. I especially like the revolver that can load paper cartridges.

Man I'd really love to know how to make the AK, I'd love to have one hanging on the wall.

Bud: what is it that they are that you didn't realize they were? I'm not trying to be a jerk, I feel like I missed something.

I don't get that either. I think the joke went right over my head

Well, I was informed that these really are made of paper, not built with some paint program or photoshop. I was under the impression (my own) that they were just drawings done on a computer, but one of the other staff members told me they are actually made with paper.

Just looking at one of the images, I don't see how that could be, but at this point it doesn't matter. It's open now and as long as everyone enjoys it, it's definitely firearms related.

Sometimes I'm just a spoil sport ... but not on purpose.
