Picture of Balloon Gun

in this instructable i will show you how to make a balloon gun.


•disposable water bottle
•somethin' to shoot

Step 1: Cut the Bottle

Picture of Cut the Bottle

Cut the bottle, try to get as close to the tip as you can, make sure there are no sharp edges or the balloon might get cut later on...

Step 2: Make It

After you have cut the mouth piece off the water bottle, cut the balloon in 3 pieces like in the picture.
When you have it cut, take the big bottom piece and pull it over the back of the mouth piece so that it is slightly overlapping the swirly lines.
After that, you take the middle piece, and roll it into a circle, like a small rubber band, and put it on the balloon right below the swirly lines. 
Do the same with the little circle piece.

Step 3: ALL DONE!!

You are all done!
if you want a convenient way to store your ammo, you can put it in the balloon and put the cap on.
they are good back ups for an airsoft fight. :)
My friend once got shot in the neck with a Nerd candy, he started bleeding!

You won the bet, didn't he every body?

Not clear on how to shoot the ammo?
I'm guessing you shot your ammo like its a rubber band?
Hold the side of the bottle top and pull back on the balloon.
Seems like this could be fun with a larger version to shot paint balls
Maybe using a Gatorade bottle top....

ya u are right, you just pull the balloon back while holding the bottle top with another hand.
it works good with a Gatorade bottle top also. :-)

TubaJ446 (author)popcorn4lunch2011-10-19

Yeah, I think I'll use the gatorade b/c them little things HURT!!!

Plo Koon (author)2011-06-03

why wouldn't you just use rubber bands instead?

popcorn4lunch (author)Plo Koon2011-08-27

you could, but you might as well use all of the balloon.

shebden1 (author)2011-07-08

my kids make something similar with toilet rolls, and, yes, they DO HURT!!!

popcorn4lunch (author)shebden12011-08-22

ya, I've made those before too. just as painful, but dont hold up as long.

Post d pics of it

But how are you supposed to use the gun?

neodymium (author)twsimpson2011-07-05

i assume you put something in it, like a small pebble, and pinch it like you would a sling shot, pull back and release.

I have seen larger scale models with the same concept when i looked up "how to make an airsoft gun" and it worked the same way.

i love fredfred burger!!!!!!! im following you. i like your cheese

my cheese? :)

i like your work too. i didnt think this thing hurt so i made one and shot myself in the foot with it... it hurts :)

ya, i didnt think it would hurt at first either, but it does! try shooting some sand out of it, NOT AT FACES! :)
