K'nex IPod Case / Gun Instructions

About: Hey there. I won't add too much info here, as it'll show up as one big paragraph. I'm not super active anymore, on here.

Hello there,

These are the instructions to the gun / iPod case I posted a while ago.
This gun uses a medium to somewhat large amount of pieces, depending on your K'nex collection. It uses some broken rods, other broken pieces you see in the instructions aren't needed. I used them, 'cause they were lying around at the time of making this gun.

    No problem!
    They took a while to make, 'cause of college, video games, music / guitar playing and anime, though. So sorry for that.

    Well over the recent months I have posted instructions for a

    Browning M1919



    Helicopter With Saws

    Weapons Gallery Of 2013 and 2014

    And just a few days ago, I posted E Pluribus Unum MP5K. If you want to leave in comment, that would be really helpful since I'm not getting that many comments on my newer instructables than the old ones did.

    Yeah, I saw those.
    I'll think of something I can add there, as I don't want to just post something like "nice", y'know?
    I'm actually kind of having the same 'problem', if you want to call it that, with getting less views and such. It's probably because the subscribe function is still broken, I haven't had a new post e-mail in over a year. It's a shame that they don't fix it.

    I don't mind what people say about my instructables. As long as somebody leave a comment, Im happy no matter what they say.

    Weather this is true or not I'm unsure of this but I think the reason of why I'm not getting that many comments is probably due to me just doing the same instructables every time and people are not interested any more but I 'am still getting the views i need which is good but maybe it is due to the subscribe glitch which I was never aware of it.
