hot glue gun to hot air soldering iron ?

hello everybody, I have a burning question that has been bothering me for quite some time the question is: I have a hot (really hot) glue gun and I was wondering if I could put a copper ect. pipe through the glue stick opening and hook it up to my air compressor in an effort to make a hot air soldering iron is this possible?

If you can't melt solder on the tip of the gun, then it probably won't work.

Did you do it?
Could you put some photos?

I just went to Home Depot and bought 40W glue gun for $25

The result is: Not hot enough.
