Step 1: Mateirials

1 pill bottle,1 pentube,a drill(OR SOMETHING OF THAT NATURE)scissors,and of course bb's.

Step 2: Your Barrell and Blow-piece Holes

Look at your pill bottle and cut a hole about a centimeter below the cap, make sure that it is the size of your pentube. that will be where you blow on it. Now for the barrell. You cut a hole the size of the pentube at the bottom anywhere. (preferably in the middle)

Step 3: The Barrell Itself

Get the pentube and cut it in half with the scissors. now with the holes you will push the pentube firmly in the holes and you will be finished.

Step 4: Loading It

Open the back of the pill bottle and load whatever your heart desires. but seriously dont be stupid with this gun it is not for shooting your friends in the eye.
