I wouldn't say easiest. The easiest would be a piece of pipe with a hole drilled in it for igniton. This looks ever so slightly more difficult, perhaps 30 seconds longer, than a simple piece of pipe would be.

Interesting gun. I would change a few things, (just the ignition, actually), but other than that it'd be a neat little thing to pack around to public places and such, (nothing conspicuous about an orange juice bottle and some plastic tubing).

Also, I think I might substitute for a cheaper orange juice as well. That Simply Orange stuff isn't cheap! :o

There you go... the $2.49 solution to ignition woes.

You can bring most on airplanes. You would just have to tell them exactly what you have and possibly check it in as a firearm, even though its not a firearm, pneumatics seem more airline friendly.
