Dude, you've been cranking out these ghetto guns every week; maybe consider making a better looking one?

But nice job anyhow.

It shoots pretty well for its size with heavy ammo. I can put a nail dart through a gatorade bottle. I have not been able to shoot it for distance or allot of damage shots because it was night when I finished. There will be damage shots tomorrow.

It's a lot better than the last one, I will definitely give you that,

But seriously man, put just a week at least into your guns, spend a day designing first, a day figuring out how to make the design work, a few days building and another day finishing everything up, and making it all pretty and nice, and you would have an arsenal of F'in amazing guns.

you have the ambition obviously, so a little more time making each gun is all you need, just some better thought out cleaner cuts, some paint maybe and you would be set.

I don't tell you these things because I don't like you! Its just obvious that you have a real interest and the drive to make these guns, you just could make them so much better...

I know that its just that i have mono and I've had it for a couple of months. So I have no energy to got to the hardware store and I don't have many parts here at my house so i am just making really crappy guns at the moment till I get better.

Well then why not try your hand at designing, I always do it while chilling in bed, in front of the tv, or just when I'm bored, just get yourself a ruler, pencil eraser and clipboard, you can do wonders with just that, then you have a whole backlog of ideas for when you get better, and you can improve uppon the design before you even start.

I still have a little binder in my closet with about 20 designs I made about 3 years ago, just simple stuff that I never got around to making, but that's how it goes, you build some, others you don't.

(then again, I am going into industrial design, so maybe the whole designing thing is just me :lol: )

Nah dude I love the ghettoness of them all, makes em special. I made a gone out of nothing but duct tape once, and it was better in my opinion than any of my PVC guns. Keep it up mate.
