Introduction: Make Your Own Nerf Gun, FROM SCRATCH!
Hey, this is my second good instructable so I am still kind of new to the whole instructable thing. Before we get started, I want to promote and give thanks to the video that taught me how to do it. I acctually forgot to take pictures in the making, but its pretty simple so you wont need that much instruction. I will give little tips and solutions that the guy didn't say, so this isn't just a blunt copy.

Step 1: What You Need
It doesn't take or cost much, but here is the crap you need.
2 feet 1/2 inch pvc (must be 1/2 inch to fire well!!!!)
1/2 inch plastic pvc ball valve
basket ball pump/tube
can be 5 to 20 dollars, depending on the quality, and amount
Step 2: Pvc Stuff
Cut a piece of pvc about 5 cm. File down one end so its a lot thinner. Connect that to the 2L bottle (make sure its empty). Connect the non-filed end into one end of the ball valve. Put 6 to 18 inches of pvc to the other end of the ball valve. Use pvc cement to secure it.
I used 1 inch pvc much to my despair, and than rolled up paper to make it thinner, i do not recommend this.
Step 3: Put in the Pump
Put the pump hose in the bottle so it barely fits (use a drill), gorilla glue it a hell of a lot to get an airtight seal. Here is a list of things not to use for the seal:
Step 4: Secure Teh Pump
Duct tape a dowel from the small piece of pvc you put on earlier to the pump, this will hopefully, if done right, secure it.
Step 5: Fire!!!!!
Test it out! Pump it up when the valve is closed and open the valve!
