    well i have made a better shotgun that actually pumps but that wasn't my first one, my first one was a mini doubled barreled shotgun that sucked, so for your first gun it's really good

    you should put a trigger, but the style is cool

    I'm assuming as you would a regular shotgun. Press the back against your shoulder. Anyway, I'll soon be working on a real shooting paper gun, that will shoot without you having to blow in it.
