That's what I'd call a "zip gun". It's hard to tell from the picture but going from the size of the casing it looks like it might be quite a bit bigger than the pistol shape it resembles, which may have led to that confusion.

I'm surprised he didn't use some blue pvc water pipe for a barrel.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

So are we not going to downgrade the thread title, seeing as the wife has not yet passed through the Pearly Gates?
