You don't necessarily have to attach it. Jamming it through works. You could probably reduce the subdivisions of the barrel's length.

I would have done an animated gif, but this was quicker. You could use split polygon tool also with magnets, but if you do, remember to split in the middle first.

lens flare = bad/cheesy/pointless JFlores is right. Might be worth thinking about a better lighting rig when you come to texturing so that you can properly see the results of what you are doing. Take a look at the tank in my sig, I did one a month or so ago.
