Default Any steampunk/dieselpunk fans?

While firearms are my biggest hobby, being a nerd is another. I like the steampunk genre/culture/hobby, and will hopefully create an entire outfit, one day.
Last night, I finished my first steampunk gun.
It's a nerf gun I got for 99 cents at a thrift store.

It actually is easy to use.
I had to drill out the center of the gear for it to work right.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

Sweet Nerf!! I have 4 or 5 of those around the house in non-Steampunk version

Now I have to go and put Clockwork Angels on in the background and grab the book and re-read it again...

i got one of those nerf guns for Christmas, seems everyone & their brother does something like that to them, I've seen a lot of images online of people making them more "real." the promo's for the movie "R.I.P.D." show Jeff Bridges & Ryan Reynolds using something that looks awfully similar to those.

it looks cool, but not exactly my style....right now...I might feel different about it in the morning

Steampunk is a fairly new sci-fi/historical genre/culture that is based around the turn of the 20th century in Victorian Europe, or the West (though the western version isn't even close to the popularity of the Victorian style). Almost everything is powered by steam and gears, and many advanced technologies have come about, such as incredible firearms, airships, machines that wouldn't exist in that historical era, etc.

Very strange and intriguing culture.
It's becoming immensely popular.
Dieselpunk is a lesser know spin-off o steampunk. It's based around the 30s-40s-50s, and everything is powered by diesel, instead of steam. Dieselpunk actually has a lot of Nazi-era technology and Nazi project stuff like super tanks and mechs and all that weird crap they tried.

This is what some of the stuff looks like.
Pretty neat some of these "inventions" people can create with a little ingenuity:
