Picture of How to make a paper gun
This is my ol' paper gun. I have been making these since the third grade, and I have had a lot of fun with paper gun wars.

This is my first non-knex gun, so a lot of regulars will like that.

Unfortunately, My paper gun does not shoot any ammo (common sense?), so thats a con...

It resembles a double-barrel pistol/revolver if you do it right, and It doesnt take a lot of materials to make.

The pic quality isnt that great, sorry for that part....

A lot of you guys have been complaining that this was in books. I did not see this in a book, someone taught it to me in the third grade.

Step 1: Materials.

The 2 materials:

  • 2 sheets of paper
  • masking tape (not shown)

Step 2: The handle

This will take one of the two sheets of paper, so this is it:

pic one- fold the sheet of paper hot dog style.

Pic 2- curve it like so and add tape

Step 3: The barrel

The other sheet will make the double-barrel

Pic 1- roll up the sheet diagonally

Pic 2- fold the roll in half

Step 4: Final assembly and mods

Does it look like It can shoot? This is paper.
your so rude hes just askin a question
DJ Radio (author)  pauloq984 years ago
He was asking a question which has a ridiculously obvious answer. Questions like that kind of annoy me. Also congratulations on replying to a comment almost 2 years old.
I agree with theswordninja, a gun made of paper can shoot ammunition if made right. A lot of them just use blowgun mechanisms, but mine (instructable coming soon) uses rubber bands. A tiny one can fire up to 15 feet!
actually some paper guns can shoot.
OK lolz. I thought there was a mechanism in it or something...

please make a gun that is held together by staples

"your" gun? I think not. And the tape isn't necessary...
DJ Radio (author)  Oompa-Loompa6 years ago
This is the first paper gun posted on ibles to my knowledge.

Also, the tape is necessary. If you dont put tape on, the handle will fall apart. Trust me, I have been building paper guns for years if you actually read the intro...
It's not the first paper gun, at all!
DJ Radio (author)  mg0930mg6 years ago
well, it has a design that looks different from the other paper guns on ibles.
So, because it looks different that means it was the first gun? I believe you need a lesson in basic chronology:

Y'see, there are these things called the past and the present...

Trust me with these two things: 1: This IS NOT you gun. I have been making THIS EXACT GUN since before I knew about instructables. I learned it from another site. And even THEY probably weren't the first ones to think it up. 2: The tape is NOT necessary. I've made this gun a million times, and not once did I even contemplate the necessity of tape. If you make the gun correctly, it WILL NOT fall apart.

1. This may not be my gun, but It hasnt been posted here, so I thought I would... 2. Yeah it is, if you dont, the barrel will unravel, and the handle will fall. I dont get why you are so hard on me these days.........
Ahhh... 1: Okay, so where is the due credit to "anonymous" the original creator? 2: Incorrect, sorry, If you can't keep the gun together without tape, I don't know what went wrong... I can swear to you that I've never needed tape to hold one of these together. And my apologies if I am upsetting you.

1. I dont know the original creator, some dude taught me in the third grade, and I forgot his name....... 2. you may have done it different
Oookkk, do as you wish.

DJ Radio (author)  Kaiven6 years ago
I have yet to see a book that shows you how to make it. But i believe you, it could be in a book.
