Police seize homemade semi-automatic handgun

    One mans humble dream of becoming a master craftsman at Taurus was cut short after Police in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil seized this entirely homemade .380 semi-automatic pistol (excluding the magazine) which was made in his backyard, presumably from melted down Coca-Cola cans.

    Such enterprising cottage industries operating out of garage workshops are regularly uncovered in Brazil. Last year the big man himself was caught manufacturing and distributing utterly terrible looking SMGs to good little boys and girls at 1k a pop.
