I want to make a homade air tank for a nerf gun. I want something easy to make and cheap. possibly made of PVC or Steel pipe. Any help would be great.

Sort of. I just need a way to make "for example" Like the titan air tank. Is there some way to just make a tank with a pin you could pull to open the valve and then hook up a bike tank to pump it?

I assume you mean a dump valve, like in an Air Tech gun. Of course you can add one on to the end of a tank, but it will consume a lot of you air. You might also want to regulate it down a bit first. Also, you can attach a bike pump using a NPT snifter valve, which is the same threads as what the threaded PVC couplers have.

The cost of materials to make one would be the same or more than simply buying a Buzz Bee Big Blast ($9).
If you gave more details as to what you're trying to accomplish that might help.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
