My short post the other day on sci-fi weapons and some cleaning around my house had me thinking about rayguns from 30′s through the 50′s shows and movies. They were mostly used by aliens or by us earthers in the future. They were normally large, bulky, metallic and frequently really cool. That’s why olders of today spend time and money trying to make models of old style ray guns. I still have to follow up on my old dried up marker rockets, but now I hope to make a ray gun out of junk as well. There are tons of how to’s and pictures around on various sites done by people with far more skill than myself. However I will draw my vast knowledge of having seen way too many ray guns over the years and try to put one together at some point. If I get hold together and it doesn’t look too rotten I’ll of course post pictures of it here. A lot of people make steampunk guns too which is great. Although growing up I liked the Verne and Wells era sci-fi I spent far more time wanting to be Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers so ray guns for me please.
