by vinyl tubing do you mean pvc if so yes but you wouldn't want to use a blo gun the volume released through it is not enough to shoot anything so you need a faster higher volume valve like a modded sprinkler valve, or a qev. How big do you want it to be maybe i could help u draw up plans or someone else for shure. i forgote to mention you need a tank to hold the pressure before you get to the barrel not the tank on the compressor but one witha larger opening. then you could place the whole assembly in a larger diameter pipe and use a football shaped object that has the barrel running through it to make a rocket like object if your going for looks

First of all, Mike, learn to use periods. :lol:
Your gun would work, however it would have horrible performance if I am understanding it correctly. Could you possibly draw up an idea on paint, that would help alOOOOt :D

the thing to the left is the holding tank the one to the right is a fake rocket for looks. and the plan calls for the use of a blowgun hooked to a 1/4 barbed fitting but half would work better.
EDIT:

its labled modded sprinkler valve on the plan itself as is it labled pressure tank so your question is already answered cant you read?
