Picture of DIY Peg Mini-Gun
Make a very simple mini-gun from a regular clothes-peg. You can do it in few minutes. The gun is quite powerful and can shoot up to 5 meters. Be careful and don't shoot into living creatures.

Cock a gun as shown, insert a toothpick and you are ready to shoot.
I found that if you extend the peg by cutting it a little longer you a slight bit more of power and range. due to the fact that your trigger (spring) has a little bit more time to speed up propelling your projectiles (tooth pick or matchs). you can always try this and experiment with it
