If you plan to sell them, it becomes a business of selling an item that shoots a projectile. This is where being legally an adult will make a difference. If you were just building one for yourself, probably would not matter. But you did say you wanted to sell them. That changes things.

This can, and will, attract attention to yourself. The income you make from it is part of the issue; ever tried to deal with the Tax Man? It's a lot of fun.

Then when it's notice what your product is, it will attract even more attention.

So I am, again, suggesting to you that you cover ALL the bases if you wish to do this. I am NOT saying you should stop, ok? Just check all your options.
Allright, Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Part of my "development" is checking out the legalities of creating and selling these devices. So far the authorities I've talked to said it wouldn't be a problem aslong as it doesn't involve combustion... But I'm not sure their word will be "legally binding" in court if it comes to that.
