I've sure seen worse...

Upgrade the ignition. Having an open hole in the chamber seriously reduces performance. Besides that, pretty run-of-the-mill mini. Keep at it.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

It looks nice and harmless :)
Wire a small piezo through the hole and put duct tape over it.
Then it will perform better i think

That first picture confused me a lot. The first thing I noticed(after the gun) was the strange ghostly figure at the top. At first I though you might have taken the picture through a window, but then I noticed the gun's shadow wasn't lined up right.
Finally I saw everything appeared to be floating 3 inches above the surface, and only then realized it was on a glass table :)

Nice first. Good work not getting hotglue/electrical tape everywhere.

As Pete said, Ive seen a lot worse!
btw, fnord, that is a glass plated table with a TV reflection on it as far as I can see... am I right? (the shadow out of place: and this could be an eastern creation, where levitation of spudguns is quite common... :D )
But nice work and keep it up!
