    Can you tell me where I can get a "pen duh"

    Quick tip: Use strike-anywhere matches. Also, this is a good *ible, but please add real pics. Be careful!

    either looks like a bong or an really screwed cigarette XD jusk kidding

    i may suggest using something longer than a toothpick to put in the barrel for longer pullback. other than that its a fine school weapon :D

    I agree... REAL pics! but still nice instructable! :)
