how does the ammo get into the barrel? it just looks like its sitting there.

joemonkey (author)adamthiede2007-07-24

u put it in the barrel. i was making an auto feed, but its not #1 on my list.

pengyduck (author)joemonkey2007-11-16

maybe make a hole in the side of the barrel inside so the bullets will fall in when you turn it sideways, it's a start

tanmanknex (author)pengyduck2009-07-18

and then put a tiny peice of paper in as a stopper

Well, judging by the fighter jet profile pic, name of Cubie, and the fact that you obviously know where I live, I know where you live too!

Cubie2 (author)tanmanknex2011-04-01

*GASP* Oh dear...

Cubie2 (author)2011-03-21

Ok, so what you do is you put a pin inside the pen casing with the tip poking through a thin water balloon. Then you put the tip on over the water balloon and add a tail to the dart a wala! You have an extremely powerful blow dart gun. I'm working on putting a compressor in so that it gains the air it needs itself.

Whats with the fat guy

popcorn4lunch (author)benduy2011-02-16

thats what i was wondering....

Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)2007-04-25

Man I hate that Walmart guy. He's always giving me that "I know were you live" look. Mabey its because im his neighbor... anyway, REVENGE!!!. I can't wait to annoy him all day and then get tackled by security when they figure it our. :)

you know those benches by the greeter and when he looks the other way (this reminds me of this walmart guy he never looks up at the time my sister being only ohh idk.... 18 lol she stood in his line of vision and all he said was hello goodbye hello goodbye hello goodbye ect. untill my mom pulled her away and said stop it) (shoot) huh? (shoot) huh? or when people flip you off in wall-mart mam could you please look this way i'd like to give you something WHAT? (you friends shoot) (ALTOIDS say burp) lol ow what the (your friends shoot) (altoids say burp accaully you should put a recorder of that thing on amarican dad of spider say burp but only slice it and take sounds and put them in so it says altoids say burp)

I made it and #1- it works amazingly well/ the bullet goes nearly 20 feet. #2- it holds roughly 80-100 bb's #3- if you put a thread stretching across the opening of the end you blow on, it will allow you to load it through the other side and it wont roll out

miqt (author)2008-04-05

haha i used to make stuff like this and use it at school, except i would just use the tube on pens, it works almost just as well.....depending on the pen.

andrewdpham3 (author)miqt2009-02-03

I make bow and arrows out of pens and rubber bands. really simple but only one peice of ammo. any suggestions?

PKTraceur (author)2008-08-20

I used a gel pen tube and the tube is like (the bottom,) so the bb stops halfway. |||| |||| |||||||| ||||||| ||||||||||| ||||||||||| |||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||| |||||||||||||||| ||||||||||| ||||||||||| |||||||| |||||||

smboling (author)2008-06-01

My Altoids tin disguised it the whole time.

smboling (author)2008-06-01

Yeah, I used a pen tube and airsoft BB's and I hit my teacher on our Field trip, She never found out it was me.

theosullis (author)2008-03-10

The barrel is very small i would not think it the bb would go very far.

bowow0807 (author)2008-03-01


jeffconnelly (author)2007-11-18

Do you think that it would work in other containers? maybe you could have a tic tac container with the tube on one side, and the ammo stored so you get it out like a tic tac?

PyromaniacDaniel (author)2007-10-17

add a paper towel to line the altoid can to keep the pellets from clanging

joemonkey (author)2007-07-02

omigosh i completely forgot about that! i did get part of thi idea from u, but most of it was me and my friend trying yo conceal a gun

Mace42 (author)2007-06-09

Dude is that you? Why the squint lol~

joemonkey (author)Mace422007-06-09

oh him? haha no, that is m' good friend reece! he is squinting from the super bright flash on my camera(i hacked it) and cuz i shot him in the ear with that gun! TEE HEE!!!

Mace42 (author)joemonkey2007-06-09


Opieone (author)2007-06-01

What i did was take the pen shell thing and taped to the bottom of the altoids case then drilled a hole through the bottom of the altoid case and into the pen so it has auto feed

icedog515 (author)2007-04-25

wait...i dont get it. do you blow through it or sumthin??im confuzzled

casvandegoor (author)2007-03-02

nice idea! (also watch my guns!)

Squire_Bullet (author)2007-02-25

Well how about something more Practical, what about Gander Mountain?

joemonkey (author)Squire_Bullet2007-02-26

well i gess if they carry them?

Squire_Bullet (author)2007-02-14

where do you buy airsoft Barrels?

joemonkey (author)Squire_Bullet2007-02-14

well one way is buy a peice-o-crap gun and tear it up you also could look online for a parts website

Jack Daniels (author)2007-02-10

you should build a hopper into it thats also pressurised by your breath so you can fire more than one at a time

joemonkey (author)Jack Daniels2007-02-11

thanks for the suggestion. i would have, but this was a plan for a concealed blowgun. i'll make some thing later and post it.

bigpinecone (author)2007-02-10

hmmm, i'm bored and i'm using my mp3, i'll go build a breech version yay

bigpinecone (author)bigpinecone2007-02-10

bigpinecone (author)bigpinecone2007-02-10
