Not the smartest thing in the world. Just be careful with it if you make it.

I made this in my attic and it will never see the light of day. I just picked up the tube and thought what could I make with this. with all the bits and pieces I had kicking around it took minutes cost nothing and is just a gimic.

Probably too realistic. Are you making this for a costume? Perhaps consider making it very blatantly cartoonist, or risk an overreaction from nervous bystanders.

Please don't get shot.

This will never be seen outside. It probably won't even be seen by my family. It was made in my attic andwill stay there.
