Laser gun's been moving along slowly. I finally finished the electronics for it though...
First set of half-dome lights stay on as long as the gun is in use or on display.
Once the charging button is held, the charging bars start going.
While holding the charging button, at any time you can pull the trigger and it will shut off the charging bars and engage the firing lights--the two front half domes as well as the large crystal that will be seated deep inside the barrel.
Now to finish the gun sculpt so I can start fitting this stuff to it! :D
