ion ray gun

remeber a while ago I said I wanted to make some cool high voltage weapon in the shape of a gun? Well I've dicided to make an ion ray gun! The only problem is that I don't want to pay for plans (that's just not right, half the time they probably jip you). The closest thing I've found is this:
but that doesn't help me with saftey procosions (sorry, having a bad spelling day).

Basically I need help for the schematics and the safe way to build and handle one. I don't want a wimpy one either, I want a medium power one, like do stuff from 10-20 feet or something like that.

Oh and if possible, skip extra circuits by using something like this:
I also don't mind making voltage multiplier circuits.

If everything works I'll make an instructable out of it!

Oh, and tech-king, you can use the sign now.

could you go to goodwill or something and get one of those ion air cleaners and use the guts to make an ion gun?

I don't think it's illegal, all it is (correct me if I'm wrong) is a really high dc voltage pulsed through a sharp object emitting ions? for all of you saying negative ions don't make you better, here's reason. Negative ions speed up the cilias in your body, making everything work faster and stronger or something like that.
negative ions are very good for the immune system.

I know you're right, but that sounds funny for some reason. "The doctor says I need more negative ions, blast me!"
can you please explain to me why you picked something as useless as a ion canon? a much better choice would be a rail gun.

I don't want something toooo dangerous. Rail guns are nice and all (I was about to make a coilgun, which is awesome too) but I mean it's just... uhhh. more so useless? Like you couldn't do as cool demonstrations with it. Big woop it shoots stuff, but an ion ray gun is invisable stuff, so people are like wooahhh
no. 1) an ion gun display nothing. no one sees anything. for all they know, its not working 2) reverse the last diode in the link i provided 3)your demonstration will be boring, as there will be nothing to see 4)a coil gun is a better plan 5) ill think up more reasons why this is a bad idea later. i have an electronic pessimist meeting now.

Hmm, you "could" move small bits of paper, or packing peanuts, with it :-)
Kind of like "air" from a solid object *shrug*

I here you can do other cool stuff with them, but I havn't been able to fin a reliable source on the net (everyplace says something different...)
