That's a very interesting and nice approach at that. Kinda like reinventing the wheel, but done well. I like the ammo storage. How's the range for you?

He can probably get like a good mile out of that thing at around 7000 fps. Who cares about the range of a q tip gun?

Why range? Because I tend to think that if you can get a large punch out of something small, then it's been well built. There's nothing wrong with a longer range out of something small.

Yeah, that was kinda redundant...

Oh I wasn't saying anything about the gun itself I just found it funny that the guy was asking about the range. You should put one of those mini mini fans that can be found on graphics cards and the batteries and the switch into the pill bottle thats used as ammo holder. Also a lighter can be put there and a venturi nozzle from a jet lighter can be housed in there too. Now that would be a kick ass powerful mini. :D
Like you say Scott: "Just my .02"
Take care
