Here is my newish ammo belt. It holds 28 darts, fits comfortaly and doesn't hinder my movement at all. I use it with my 3k I got from a friend over the summer. The belt part is a Guitar Hero 3 guitar belt.

Very inventive, I like it. Your barrel as NerfOnFier said looks very crooked, looks like like it is going down way to much. Other then that you did a very good job.

Yes, my new barrel need adjustment. It is aligned with the crack that splits the gun in its halves, I just need to straighten it. Thanks for the comments guys.

Roughly 1/2-3/4 inches. I am bad at cutting this stuff, even with a pipe cutter.

Really now Tonto? Cool strap but can you buy the strap for the guitar in stores? Otherwise these will be hard to make.

Some masking tape and hot glue.

@aamiller321, you cannot buy the straps seperately, but you can go to a local store that has fabric and get some really durable stuff.

Simply on the topic, Ryan##### uses a shotgun bandoleer for his ammo belt, and I can attest to its usefulness. If you go to a fabric store to get the straps, ask for webbing. If you can't get it there, look up www.strapworks.com (link originally supplied by VACC) and go with the "webbing" category.

Hope I was helpful.

I made a similar one out of CPVC and duct tape that I used at HbH. However the CPVC was way too tight and deformed my darts, hurting range a bit. It did work well as far as reload times and mobility were concerned.

I still have to work out a couple of things with the cpvc, but I will post cardboard body armor sometime this week in addition to the stuff in this thread.

Thanks again for the positive comments everyone.
