Our "Fast and Furious" entity of the US government (read BATF) can answer that question.

I don't know if you can, but I know you may build one for yourself.

Serious reply- yes, you may make a firearm for YOUR OWN USE in the US. Not for sale. If it is a Class III (short barreled whatever, destructive device) it must be licensed FIRST. You cannot build a full auto.

If you wanted to, you can take a block of steel, a really sharp pocket knife, and whittle yerself a derringer. If it ENTERS THE STREAM OF COMMERCE, you need a manufacturer's FFL.


The Hamdgun might be a .38 Blue Plate Special, a Sig-Sausage, or a 9mm Sauerbrauten. There WAS a real revolver shortly after the Civil War in an obsolete caliber- the rimfire .25 Bacon & Bliss. But if I said more, I'd just be egging you on.

I hoped this was about a gun that shoots ham.


Yes. You can build a handgun. There are some videos on youtube of a guy who builds functioning handguns out of paper based products. I know a guy in Tennessee who can build a gun out of pretty much anything. And I'm reasonably certain there are customizable DIY kits for any type of gun.

hmmm, a gun that shoots ham...
I offer this, only because I can't find a cannon using ham as a projectile.

on the easy scale from 1 being building a AR15 from parts and 10 building a 30mm gatling gun to sling under an A10... building a handgun from scratch is maybe a 3. it depends on which gun your looking to part together most require minor to major fitting to get the parts to work.

unless your whittling the frame itself from scratch you will still need to have it properly signed for as the frame is generally the ffl item.

a lot of diy handgunners do the build it yourself blackpowder kits of one sort or another as a starting point.

its not as economically viable to part together your own pistol as it is for an AR15. it usually coss more to part together say a glock xdm 1911 or sig than just buying one already built.
