Office Supplies Pocket Rifle, Shoot Your Friends!

Snipe your friends with this little compressed-air gun! Despite her size, this little beast packs a punch! Sorry for the bad quality, I took the pictures with my webcam (The pink wall is due to the light reflecting on my red bed).

Remember: whenever using an object that shoots projectiles, DO NOT AIM AT SOMEONE'S FACE! I will not be responsible if anyone is hurt.

Step 3: Making the barrel

Cut the end of the reynold pen (keep approx. 1 cm of white plastic).

Step 4: Assembling the gun

Insert the barrel in the air chamber, put the cap in the other side. To fire, make a small spitball (put paper in your mouth for a few seconds and shape it into a ball), put it in the barrel (make sure air cannot pass by pushing the ball with a toothpick), and push the little cap with a stick/brush.

Tip: If the cap can't move easily, use soap.

Right now, it looks nothing like a rifle, but it works.Go to the next step for customisation.

Step 5: Customisation

Remember the optional items at the beginning? Time to use them.

Wrap the air chamber and the barrel with tape.

Sorry to answer 9000 years later...
Hopefully this will help someone else...
To fire it, take your brush/stick, and push the little cap found in the erasing thingy thru the barrel. I will add a schematic.
someday, i'm gonna make an instructable of a ballpen that uses only a ballpen and hands maybe a scissor too
lol, ok. The schematic or even a video would/will help. :)
Awsome!
