Metal Gun Made With 3-D Printer

For those who doubt the feasibility of 3-D printed firearms, CNN reports:

A Texas company says it has made the first metal gun using a 3-D printer, taking the debate over people's emerging ability to create their own firearms to a new level. 
Solid Concepts, a specialty manufacturing company, said in a blog post it has fired more than 50 rounds from the handgun, even hitting a few bull's-eyes at more than 30 yards.
When people voice concerns about the prospect of printed firearms, one of the most common responses is that printed firearms will be unsafe or unreliable.  This story illustrates how the technology seems to be developing at a pace that will soon invalidate these arguments.
