I have created and sold more than 230 custom, one-of-a-kind ray guns since 2010(7 years). It's been a good gun-run. But 3-D printing is taking over on the solid-plastic prop-making front. I've sold only ONE(1) of my custom props in the past year. The competition is technologically advanced beyond my budget to keep it up. I'll still make a ray gun or prop every now and again for my own costumes or adventures. But I'm forced to store my ray gun supplies and bits to make room for my products that are still selling. But it was a GREAT GUN-RUN!! :)
You can see many of my creations in my DeviantArt gallery and some ray guns still available in my E
I've just started a new Kickstarter fund-raising campaign for my children's book "Professor Parniferous Pirkle and his PrecociousPixies". Donations can be as little as $1 and you'd still get something out of your contribution that will assure your immortality among the pixies and sprites of Hedgerow Hollow.
Should you not be able to help stat this wonderful project, you would do me a great service by passing this information throughout the realms to those that would brave the adventures along with the Professor and his companion, Sunny, the Illuri Wood Sprite as they search for ancient magic and lost loved ones in the lands of Hedgerow Hollo
