Mini Spud Gun





Introduction: Mini Spud Gun

But this an't my idea.

Step 1: The Gun

It's pretty obvious.
you need...
tiny advil pill bottle
--2 tacks
-pen tube
-bbq ignighter(inside a utility lighter)
-electric tape

Step 2: Build

Cut the end off the pill bottle(the end without a cap).Stick in the two tacks into the bottle and make it so they almost touck(like a 3mm gap). Take a wired up ignighter and strip the ends and wrap them around each steel part of the tack and push down(if you dont know how to wire the ignighter too bad!).Tape the ignighter down to the bottle(make shure you can still press the botton).Wrap tape to the end of the pen tube so it snugly fits into the cut end of the bottle.Test for a good spark(rewire if it wont spark).

Put a bit of potato in the pen tube. spray a bit of hair spray in the screw end and put on the cap.

fire and enjoy

Ps. this is my 1st instructable tell me what u think.

Step 3: Original

Step 4: Nothing

    I was just wondering, would the pill bottle start melting due to the fact that things are exploding in it?

    not melting, maybe exploding though

    Guys What about hand sanitizer??

    can we use perfume instead of hairspray?

    u can use body detorant as well like axe or something

    most perfume isnt flammable though

    made one, heres a pic.

    Damn, i was playing with it last night and it self destructed. Did you know you can make a flamethrower from this and the fuel can? It's simple. spray a shot of fuel in the cannon, dont close the end, then ignite it. Then spray deodorant across the flames coming from the bottle.

    i used a m&m; mini bottle and it doesn't seem to work does anyone know if there is a problem
