You poke a hole in the bottle cap.

I was wondering, since i'm having a water fight, how do you cap it up so water doesn't come out if you put it under little amounts of pressure?

author
yowars (author)dombeef2009-05-10

ya me to i did that at my school for football cuz my couch dos not want us sharing water so i did this so we would not have to put our mouths on the bottle

author
dombeef (author)yowars2009-05-10

Yeah cool!

author
sharlston (author)2009-04-04

you could make a smaller hole which would make more pressure to make it more powerful

So simple! Nice! I'm so dumb that I even haven't thought of that!

author
csmiler (author)2008-09-05

this is really simple but cool...used to play with them a few years ago... if you blow into them,with the bottle upside down(water to the cap),and immidiately shoot ...you would get a lot more force

tomtrollkiller (author)2008-07-16

FIGURE IT OUT!!

admanrocks (author)ElectrodeMike2007-02-14

everybody's being really mean withcomments on this

author
ElectrodeMike (author)admanrocks2007-08-10

im not being mean to you its just that question about filling it up

author

then when you squeeze it, air comes out instead of water. refill it. if your complaining about a "real" squirtgun, then go look at my instructable on how to make one out of a disposable fire extinguisher, its mroe than a real one lol, hold way mroe water and shoots way farther.

author
admanrocks (author)lakeguido102006-08-12

fill up the bottle...

author
Bob7k (author)admanrocks2007-02-09

lol, simple, you could even make different patterns on the caps and make them changable, like make a whole bunch of little tiny holes to make a shotgun style pattern, and use another one which is a small hole in the center, stuff like that, lol

author
James (pseudo-geek) (author)2007-08-06

brilliant. I'll make one right now lol

karen608 (author)2007-07-29

this would be a 'cheap toy' when grandkids come to visit, then throw away after the visit. Of course an outside toy, i hope!

i hope you kidding

author
admanrocks (author)serp2006-09-18

why?

author
Bob7k (author)admanrocks2007-02-09

i guess he didnt think its worthy of its own article, like the "how to operate a water faucet" article. i saw these at the fair, and i used a push pin to make it, i find you get different patterns if you swirl the pushpin around the hole to bend the plastic, you get a steadier beam, and if you do it from the inside, it gets even more steady. lol, try multiple holes!

author
Luuke (author)2006-12-16

there is another way without water and is much more fun because it hurts alot more... all you do is empty the bottle, close the cap and twist the whole bottle until you can feel your fingers then twist off the cap and it will go flying like 20 feet and if you hit someone close range it will bruise them :) have fun if you want me to do a instructable on it plz aks me

author
admanrocks (author)Luuke2006-12-16

ya i know how to do that too

author
brazilian (author)2006-11-01

author
XxyangxX (author)2006-10-31

Jus fill a waterbottle to it max...place it on the floor...stand on one leg above the bottle...kick open the bottle cap n watch the cap fly...if cant try unscrew it a little..

cecilomar (author)2006-10-14

author
zachninme (author)2006-09-05

Ah, I use this to drink anything that comes in a bottle (except soda). Very fun, although not really a "water gun"...

author
Senator Penguin (author)2006-08-28

I perfected the timing of this. Simply grab a full bottle, press the bottom firmly on the ground (asphalt or concrete, preferrably) and scrape it quickly across the ground, opening an angled hole in the bottom of the bottle. You just swipe the bottle on the ground. Squeeze, and water shoots forward. Faster and easier, though less elegant and reusable.

geetarkid (author)2006-07-27

ahh yes the water gun bottle last year in 7th grade i did that all the ime in my forced chorus class me and my friends would have nice lil' water gun wars and target shooting championships p.s. dasani bottles work the best because they dont get all crused ~geetarkid
