So you have your blowgun hooked up to an air compressor?

(sorry, I'm a pneumatic noob)

The design on wiki was a little hard to see and made it sound complicated. So all you need for a basic one is a chamber with plastic BB's, a blowgun valve hooked up to an air compressor, and a barrel drilled into the un-threaded end cap?
And one more question: Would one of those tire compressors work? I hae one that you plug into the car's socket, it can go up to ~100 psi (has a pressure gauge)

The design of the cloud is a simple one, ther is a pile of BB's sitting in the chamber, the air comes out of the blowgun up into the pile of BB's which moves the BB's around, then the BB's follow the air out the barrel.

Hope that cleared that up.

I thought it was that simple. Would this compressor work? It's for filling tires.

The end piece. Kinda hard to see, but it connects to a Schrader-type valve.
