How to make a Star Wars blaster from PVC pipe

My 10-year old son is really into Star Wars so I made him a "blaster" out of pvc pipe and he LOVES it.  I also made one for a neighbor's son (also age 10 also into Star Wars) and he loves the blaster.

I purchased the 1/2 inch pipe and fittings from my local Home Depot.  Cut the pipe with a hand held pipe cutting tool (looks like scissors).

Decorate with duct tape.

Heh looks like you've just given your son the makings of his first paintball gun if he figures out how to modify the piping, or at the least his first potato gun.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will pass these instructions on how to make a Star Wars blaster to my hubby. What a great surprise this will be for my 10 year old son!
