Seem to remember there was a video tutorial on more advanced spring technique posted at Spinquad.com, thik it was one of Proton's Weightmap vidz... (it seems overkill for this purpose, but just in case)

Ah, at last, found it,

I guess that would depend on whether or not the gun will be animated.

Yep, but it is also a nice way to tweak the spring "density" realtime.

The thickness of the spring can be adjusted with point normal move tool.
