Homemade Black Pipe Shotgun for SHTF Scenario!


Fellow survivalists, whatever you do, DO NOT build this black pipe shotgun just for fun or curiosity's sake! It is illegal to build and not only that, it is downright dangerous. 

Learning to make a black pipe shotgun creates a need in a survival situation or the dreaded SHTF! Beyond that, we must warn you though, of the dangers involved in homemade shotguns.

Either by laws of man or the laws of nature, guns are powerful tools which entail a huge responsibility. While an improvised weapon has the power to save your life, it can also destroy, a situation where there's no coming back.

Use this information responsibly and only when everything else fails which we hope not!

The reason I am posting it here is when the time SHTF and you are scrambling to protect yourself and your family to be able to survive, you know how to defend yourself and your possessions.

Most people would walk right by these pieces of black pipe, not knowing you could turn them into a deadly piece of plumbing for anyone on the wrong end of this boomstick.

This is for informational purposes only and we encourage you to use this piece of information responsibly!

Again, I stress, don't build this! It is for your viewing pleasure and inspiration for when nothing else but this will do.

Gun Control Legislation

The Gun Control Act of 1968 requires individuals with business in the gun manufacture and sale to be licensed by the federal government.

While there is no prohibition in the GCA of 1968 for individuals building homemade guns, gun regulation laws vary from state to state.

The GCA has nothing on prohibiting homemade guns as long as it's for personal use. Also, if there are no restrictions to the individuals, say convicted felons.

Let's say you are building this homemade shotgun for a low-cost recreation, still, check with your local gun laws and regulations.

Most importantly, as we have repeatedly pointed out, stay on the safe side and use this information only for knowledge's sake.


Follow the step-by-step guide to building a black pipe shotgun in this video from Guyver's Lab and use this information responsibly:

Some shotgun huh? While I love homemade guns I would much rather have something safe for use both now and when SHTF.

For that, I recommend what is quickly becoming my favorite “No Ammo” firearm.  Yes, no ammo required for this 800 FPS deadly accurate .22 caliber air rifle.

    It is not worth a Dam with detailed Plans to build by, I have seen a lot of plans on guns but without detailed plans they are not worth a dam! when the lines are so broad that you can not make parts that work because the lines are to wide, Etc. I want something I can build and would like more that one so I can build them and put them in a lot of places not just one where the government can grab!
