Looked at a few threads on this. Appears to be not all that hard if you have the right tools. Or the right friends with the right tools. Now just a matter of finding items to drill out to make into shooter rods. Looking for some ideas for items to drill out for my 2 pins Aerosmith: Dice, cigarette lighter, rat head, jack in the box head. Heavy Metal: Mini Green billiard ball with # drilled out (Loc Nar), claw holding green gem (ebay?), B 17 coin/chip, zombie head. Could use a few ideas. Best to get a few, weird shapes can be hard to drill.
