Why Not Buy a Lightgun?

Good question. Playing lightgun games is the ultimate goal and there are many LCD compatible lightguns available for sale that will get you gaming much sooner than building your own DIY lightgun. The buyalightgun.com domain name is still available if someone wants to create a new website!¬†Until then, this website will exist to help those who wish to pursue building their own lightgun. Like many others, you might find that building a DIY lightgun is an enjoyable hobby and make more than one. You will be frustrated at times but will also learn a lot. When you finally finish your first DIY lightgun, you will likely feel a sense of pride that you haven’t felt for a while. After all, wouldn’t you rather tell your family and friends “I made this” than “I bought this”?
