Uzi strawz (automatic airsoft blowguns with bb control and clips)

uzi strawz are 'professional' automatic airsoft blowguns. i had this idea in the 6th grade and ive been improving the idea over the years on those rainy boring days. the guns have design features that hold the bbs in when the straw is held in the shooting position. the significance of the bendy part is you can use it to aim. they shoot a clip of around 35 bbs in about a second. heres how to make them.

shooting tip
hold the tip of your tongue over the mouthpiece blow then release your tongue.
with practice you should be able to shoot the bbs through a sheet of paper

Step 1: Materials

to make an uzi straw using my preferred method you will need the following matirials:

1. those bendy straws from friendly's get a few.
2. some straws from mcdonalds
3. a straw 6 millimeters wide or wider i use the straws from subway. get a few because sometimes the bbs get stuck in the straws and sometimes you mess up cutting the straw. blow airsoft bbs through the straw to see if it works.
4.electrical tape
5.scissors
6.exacto knife or razorblade
7.piece of super thin non streatchy plastic wrapper i use the wrapper from little debbie snacks, or from subway straws.
8.airsoft bbs at least 5 or 6 to test it
9. patience, dexterity, common sense, and time.

Step 2: Bendy straw outer frame

1.cut a piece about 2 inches long off of the front of the bendy straw (the front is the side that goes into your soda)
2. cut a hole in the bendy straw near the part that bends (about  a subway straws width from the start of the bendy part) big enough for a mcdonalds straw to fit through.
3. cut the 2 inch straw so there are 4 equally spaced pieces sticking out to wrap underneath the hole in the bendy straw.
4. dont tape the 2 inch piece to the hole yet
5. cut the bendy straw to be about 5 inches long

now you have the outer frame.

hook it up to a canister of compressed air and you're all set!
i made one of these and its pretty cool! :) i super sized it though and used pvc pipe instead of straws so you can shoot basicly whatever you want!
