    A little word of advice, don't ask for people to be nice because it's your first instructable. It's not considered to be a valid reason for bad things ( Not saying this is bad! ) The instructions and pictures are both clear, and it's not a stupid Killerk copy. The gun itself is not bad, but pump actions with trigger are better in my opinion. Certainly not bad for your first instructable. Wish I had a decent camera ;)
