It does make a mess of the floor. As far as your question, that's an easy one. Just grab your blow gun and kit it with a couple of blast of air. It will knock the old powder out no problem. When you take the cup off the gun, you can shoot air through the chrome tube and it will push most of it out. Great question.

Oh yea, good Idea. I love the fact that you can share info so Quick and easy through the board.
