Good advice, this is the direction I am attempting. The reason I believe in finding a firearms engineer with experience in 3d printer? Because, why do I want to learn off my mistakes when there will be far less mistakes with the expert. I believe in individuals that are really good at one thing and not jack of all trades masters at none. It is always better to do any project (just like the military) with specialist for each section. The outcome is always better. Football receivers are normally not good linemen. Anyways, thank you for your input. You are right inline with my thinking. The only exception I have with what you wrote. Nobody gets paid including me. We invest our time, knowledge, labor with the probability of future high returns. You see, many can imagine create and build. However, there must be money, business connections, advertising, marketing, sales, accounting, legal, warehousing, shipping, and indirect expenses. I have everything good and ready. I would prefer an investor that would only have to invest his or her time to R&D as a firearms engineer with a background in 3d printing and firearms design in the South Florida Area.
