Couple of points here-
Clown- you did not say where you are located, nor does your profile indicate a country (as do some of our overseas members) so the assumption was made that you are in the US, and subject to US law.

For the rest- Under US law, you may make a firearm for your own use. However, there are some limitations. Making a disguised firearm that can fire while disguised is highly regulated by the BATFE. Those are called AOWs, and must be registered BEFORE being built. A "pen gun" that looks like a pen when it is being fired is one such example.

A 20 g "pen gun" is likely to have other issues- such as barrel length, being classed as a "destructive device" since it is over .50 cal, etc. And firing SHOT (as opposed to gas, flares, etc, it WILL have significant recoil.

Clown, your goal of "bullets will hurt but not pierce skin" is not realistic for a firearm. Even blank cartridges can pierce the skin, and HAVE killed people. You may be better served by something in the AirSoft concept- using a 6mm plastic BB. These are on the market using spring power, electric power, and assorted compressed gasses. It is also much less likely to do damage to the shooter if your engineering and machining skills are less highly developed than you thought.

Sorry, but I have to say that this thread is further proof that video games are a bad influence on children. Just reading this and looking at those pictures makes me truly understand why the liberals want so many laws to control weapons. The OP is a poster child for the Brady bunch. Calling it as I see it...

I honestly can't believe this discussion has gone as long as it has without someone saying this is one of the worst ideas seen in a while. You're talking about making a zip gun..... and if you scab it together the way you did that rediculuous knife I don't want to be anywhere near it when you actually consider loading it.
If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...

I have to say, After looking at the picture of the "hidden gun" that looks like an accident waiting to happen. Gun manufactures use safeties for a reason. I could see your finger bumping that lever and shooting yourself or someone else nearby. If I saw you at a range with that I would not stick around.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

DUDE when you get this done make sure to video tape you blowing your arm off. You will be a youtube instant interwebs celebrity. With the problems you have in talking or well typing I would not want you around guns, knives, children, or small pet animals.

Over all I think you are going to get yourself into big trouble with this dumb sh!t your building.

Remember If you are in the USA you may want to rethink packing a sword like that as many areas will call it a concealed weapon and make you have a permit.

I was trying to be nice. Clown, you are asking for too many problems. Give it up. Get a life, there are so many other things to enjoy than games.

This is the dumbest idea I have ever seen. You actually want to fire a bullet out of a shower rod? Do you know what shower rods were made for? I"ll answer that for you. They were made for hanging shower curtains. This will end badly. This is the first time I have ever considered flagging a post. Please do not do this, and to the other members of FTF, please stop giving this gamer info that will hurt or possibly kill him. Now back to you regularly scheduled programming...
