1.get pen cut the sides off
2.get pill bottle and drill a hole and
stick pen to the pill bottle.
3.get 2 nails and put them on the sides
4.wrap the ignitor wire around the screws
5.fuel
6.cover

i would recomend u buy from spudtech.com and im sure a lot of ppl here will agree. also both gun u want to buy are so simple to make, they're just a basic combustion. there are plans for them everywhere, save ur money and just make ur own.

you shouldnt buy from spudgun.com, they put the ignitors right in the cannon, and it might rocket out and take off your finger, so go with buying one from joel http://www.spudtech.com as far as your pill bottle gun, you need to secure the pen tube somehow, use epoxy or JB weld, as both should be rated to about 2000 psi, glue may not hold it, and dont put nails in it, use screws, using nails will crack the sides of the pill bottle

they are legal in the US in general but some places dont want u to have them, and also if u check ur gun u should be able to, not 100%, but u probably wont get it in with carry on. also u should check and see if they are legal in mexico, they prolly are, but jsut make sure.
