This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Metal Working.

For this BB, you will be making a firearm!  Not assembling, not clicking stuff together, you'll be making a firearm.

Here is what one might look like:

This BB has a point range from 30 to 90 points.
 - minimum points for a fully functional, safe, and beautiful work
 - maximum points for highly professional and awesome work you'd find from a craftsman
 - work between beautiful and awesome will be awarded something in between

Minimum requirements for this BB:
 - everything is hand made from raw steel or other metals and raw wood
 - blackpowder, centerfire or rimfire are all allowed
 - pistol, shotgun, rifle, musket, blunderbuss, etc are all allowed

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - The supplies you're starting with
 - Partway through the build
 - The finished firearm
 - Video of the firearm working
What's brown and sticky? ... a stick. Or a tiny ad.
