Super easy pen gun. All that you need is a Pilot G2 pen or similar pen. (They have easy access to the spring.)

Step 1: Get a Pilot G2 Pen

Come on people, this step takes five seconds. If you don't have one, you can find them on the ground at school. Once you have obtained this then you can begin with the rest of the steps

Step 2: Disassembly

Disassemble the pen (don't bother with the small white piece at the end of the pen near the clip) That's all you need for this step.

Step 3: Put the Spring on the Writing end of the Pen

Put the spring on the pen.

Step 4: Put the writing part into the "Chamber"

Shove the pen in there- just not too hard. You don't want it in there too hard.

Step 5: Put the cap back on the pen

Put the cap back on- just barely, if you bump it- it will fall off. Then for firing just click the pen and it should get at least 10 - 20 feet depending on how hard you press it. For variation you might want to glue the cap to the end of the writing part.

i made a better version of this,first u take it apart so that none of the peixces r still inside. so u put the button that u click in then the spring then the other tiny peice and screw in the front part back in and get a saw and saw away part of the front so its wide enough for an ink tube(from a bic pen or another type of pen) 2 fit in, but b careful to not cut it to muck or else the spring and all the other little peices go flying ever where . to load it u just stick in the ink tube and keep trying until the spring locks(sometimes this doesnt work on some unlucky pilot pens) then press the button and it shoots it.

I do this at school all the time, freaks people out if you shoot over their head.

This is dangerous. I once had a friend who fires this into one guys eye. Be safe while playing with this as it could hurt.

This is my first Instrucable, please be fair and comment on how to make it better.
I like this idea, but it would be nice if there was a way to keep the spring from falling out.
you could tape or glue the spring to the ink cartridge
