Can I use a small blue one-way connector instead of the tan one-way connectors on all the steps? Since I have very little tan pieces but alot of the one-way blue connectors that are just like the tan ones.

rexdino5 (author)rexdino52010-06-06

Also does anybody know how to make a safety for any gun? Since one time I made a crossbow and it went off by accident and hit my mom in the glasses... I don't want that to happen with the gun. I always point the gun down to the ground with two hands when I'm not using it but I still my go off by accident.

looks like a gun that if you got shot with it you would bleed to death

author
Oblivitus (author)Ps2playa2010-01-20

Lol, it has half the range of a powerful pin gun, so not really, but it is powerful for a shotgun.

author
Ps2playa (author)Oblivitus2010-01-20

mettaurlover (author)2009-12-01

i made a massivly more compact version of this a while back, with the barrels oriented vertically and a much smaller trigger system. only problem was that the ram jammed frequently when cocking unless you held down the trigger.
