Not sure if this really belongs here, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

I and a couple of colleagues have just finished up the first iteration of BubbaGun.com, a website featuring the worst hacked-up, home gunsmithing projects we can get photos of. I'd greatly appreciate it if you guys would take a look, offer any suggestions for improvement you may have, and perhaps submit your tragic photos.

We're trying to keep a light-hearted feel, taking much of our inspiration from "People of Walmart" and similar sites.

Thanks for the eyes, and if this post is out of like I won't be offended if it is removed or moved to a different area.

Great idea, just need more content! I always enjoyed getting a chuckle at "bubba'd" guns before I was sad for the damaged firearm in question.

Thanks Der Stro - yes, we have several more photos to run, but we're really going to need user participation to keep it running.

One of the next guns on the list is AR with a hand-fluted barrel (done with a Dremel).

I try to take heart in the fact that most of these guns, even if not attacked with a hacksaw, would be badly pitted with rust by virtue of not being well cared for in the first place. At least, that's what I tell myself.

Eh, I guess I find it hard to get upset about what another adult spends his or her money on. Those guns may not be what I like, but that doesn't matter. I didn't pay for them. If the owner likes them like that, than that's exactly what they should look like.

It isn't upsetting at all, it's just kind of funny to see subjectively ridiculous things people do to firearms.

Great web site!

That Krylon Mosin reminded me of a German Mauser my dad loaned my older brother. He hand carved a bull elk into the stock and painted it with a high gloss black paint. Not sure if it was a rattle can job, but it was one of the few times my Dad was speechless. After that stunt, older brother had to hunt with that one, and I got the Rem 700 .270.
