10 feet?? Geeze I can spit further than that.. :roll:

Care to share any more details about the construction. I think BigBob and Spudfarm was involved in a "whose got the smallest mini" competition....friendly of course. Maybe they will be interested in more of the details you have.

Also your pictures are not the best. Can you take some others in better focus and lighting conditions?

it fires good exept that the bullets twist and turn the time they leave the barrel its just hard to get the .117 bb's theyre so rare. but when i get those bb's they should go a bit farther.

the construction is a bit crude but its as follows. the barrel is the fatest part of an old rc remote antenna. around the barrel is rubber tube got it from the bits i cut of from the cable at the back of the tv. the chamber is elmers glue cap i cut it of from the neck then glued shut part that i cut. i used paper clips for the igniter inside the chamber. the rest is twist tie and electric tape.

sorry about the pictures i just took it with my pda only 1.2 megapixels
