buy a bb gun,or get a piece of thick tubing(metal),then drill a lil hole near one end atthe same end weld it shut but make sure u dont weld the drill hole shut.put gun powder in then all the bbs u want,shuv a fuse in the lil hole the hold the tubing so its aimed 2wards ur target.light the fuse then look away.it shud look like this
if uve made the whole thing strong enuff it wont explode in ur hand and blow ur arm off.
enjoy urself mate n dont get dead

yes it is that simple but make shure you have thick enough steel tube. The black powder will rust it and you have to clean it though. If you can get some stainless steel that would be nice. You must have atleast 1/4″ thick pipe walls for anything under .50cal and do not overload it. make shure you make the weld strong enough in the back. you should have a pice of steel that fits tight in the back and weld that in. a bolt works usualy. but make shure the welds are strong enough. It would be even beter if you made some sort of grip on it to hold on to wile firing.
