Be very cautious with booleans
I also see that you have found the " 3" button on your keyboard when it comes to hard surface modeling i would advise to keep that at a minimum as well.

looks like a good start

Hi Ben
I hope to do a short animation at some time using the skeletal soldier with this gun may be leading on to some thing bigger but It is time to do it, I wish I could just sit at the computer for a day or week...........dave
