Picture of Materials

Ok, here are the materials you will need:

-Some Large Paper

Step 2: The Barrel

Alright, take both papers and roll them inton a circle. If you want it to be large and very even, use the tape roll and wrap the paper around it, then poke out the ta roll. Tape the rolls so they don't unravel. Now tape the rolls together, it should look like this:

Step 3: The Body

Ok, now you will need to make two more rolls. Make them small enogh so they fit in the barrel rolls. Now take 1 peice of large paper anf rap it around the Barrel. It should look like this:

Step 4: The Stock

Now for the Stock. Make a roll that can fit into the top of the barrel. Then take a few peices of paper anf make the size you want an put it around the roll. The tape it on the Barrel. It should look like this:

Step 5: The Pump

Now, this is the last part, the pump. It will not go back and forth but will look like a pump. First, fold the paper yhamburger stlye, the fold it hamburger stlye again. Then just tape it to the gun. Oh ya, the handle is that spot right under the stock. And your done, ENJOY!!

Sgt.JJB (author)mjcoolkid19982009-12-29

Cool! Could I see it?

kiddy989 (author)2009-10-25

well i have made a better shotgun that actually pumps but that wasn't my first one, my first one was a mini doubled barreled shotgun that sucked, so for your first gun it's really good

Mp5kfan17 (author)2009-10-01

you should put a trigger, but the style is cool

knex_mepalm (author)2009-08-06

how do i hold it? I can't just put it between my 'pits!

I'm assuming as you would a regular shotgun. Press the back against your shoulder. Anyway, I'll soon be working on a real shooting paper gun, that will shoot without you having to blow in it.

regular shotgun? there are many different shotgun, please tell which one and i will understand

bigd1235 (author)2009-04-19

oooo cool a double barreled 1 would be awesome especially if it could shoot

maid63 (author)2008-11-14

Sgt.JJB (author)maid632008-11-14

No, but im going to try and make one that does.

sniper4life (author)Sgt.JJB2009-03-26

looks good!! when you make one that does shoot you should find a way to make a shot shell like a bunch of little darts in on tube... that would be sweeeeeett

theswordninja561 (author)Sgt.JJB2009-03-22

for me it's real easy to make a paper gun shoot.all u have to do is make the tubes extend out the back of the gun and blow.

maid63 (author)Sgt.JJB2008-11-15

k thats cool

theswordninja561 (author)2009-03-22

it's cool ,but u should put a trigger.

party8754 (author)2009-02-07

cool i am going to make this gun

coolboy45 (author)2009-02-03

you can make this into a blowgun bye putting a tube of paper in to the barrel and then just taping one piece of paper to make the stock but keep a spot open so you can blow. and you can make the pump move by taping two pieces of long tape and then pinch the middle

Azaron_Brows (author)2009-01-15

what do u mean by normal sized paper n large paper

Sgt.JJB (author)Azaron_Brows2009-01-17

Normal Paper is standard printer paper and large is just larger.
