The easiest water gun ever in existence. When at school me and my friends ran out of water in the water refilled, one of my friends would just poke a hole in a bottle and just squirt it to my mouth. If i didn't think of this my friend would be terribly sick.

It looks like your peeing like a hobo in someones yard "" ]

CyberDoomKnight (author)2011-05-06

i guess it does work

Blakesta98 (author)2010-10-04

I like the idea i didn't even think of that. The bottle i was gonna use was a pump the i realized i just need to pop up the cap

TheAquabats (author)2010-06-28

I usually use a pen. It's more obtainable in any situation. ;]

idy26 (author)2010-05-08 too...COMPLEX! It hurts my miiiiiind!

dutchthunder (author)2008-09-04

wait a minute wait a minute.. so you poke a hole in what? how am i supposed to poke a hole in a bottle? this is physically impossible.

bylerfamily (author)dutchthunder2009-06-30

You poke a hole in the bottle cap.

aljabra (author)2009-06-25

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?

works49 (author)2009-06-14

its cooler if u use a 2 liter bottle it holds more water and sometimes shots father

dombeef (author)2008-10-04

i did for like 5 years to squirt water into my mouth

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

dombeef (author)yowars2009-05-10

Yeah cool!

sharlston (author)2009-04-04

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

TheDuctTapeMaster (author)2009-02-01

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

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 would get a lot more force

tomtrollkiller (author)2008-07-16

i squirted it at my girlfrend and she took out a realwater gun and shot it at me.We were both laughing.

lakeguido10 (author)2006-07-31

wat happens wen the water level gets too low?


admanrocks (author)ElectrodeMike2007-02-14

everybody's being really mean withcomments on this

ElectrodeMike (author)admanrocks2007-08-10

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

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.

admanrocks (author)lakeguido102006-08-12

fill up the bottle...

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

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!

schmidtty (author)2007-02-11

whoopededoo, a water gun how very exciting. Now, this is intelligence in its purest form.

wingman246 (author)schmidtty2007-03-31

is this supposed to be sarcasm? if it is, um... it doesn't work very well in unspoken form... if its not sorry

admanrocks (author)wingman2462007-03-31

i think it's supposed to be

admanrocks (author)schmidtty2007-02-11

thank you

Squire_Bullet (author)2007-02-14

Why is everyone so mean, This is an effective simple Gun, espeacialy if you have a 8 year old Brother and dont like to get in trouble

assembly_required (author)2006-07-29

or you could get a squirt bottle... same concept?

Bob7k (author)assembly_required2007-02-09

kinda, only this one recycles used waterbottles whare otherwise, they would have just been trashed

serp (author)2006-08-30

i hope you kidding

admanrocks (author)serp2006-09-18


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!

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

admanrocks (author)Luuke2006-12-16

ya i know how to do that too

brazilian (author)2006-11-01

It works with all trademark of water?

XxyangxX (author)2006-10-31

Jus fill a waterbottle to it 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..

armageddon (author)2006-10-19

WOW!!! i never knew how to do that! thats amazing... sarcasm rules. i like coffee beans idea better.

cecilomar (author)2006-10-14

I prefer to full the bottle with water and trow it up... closed.

OWNA 66 (author)2006-09-24

VERY FUNNY! Coffe bean ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...

seany (author)2006-07-17

wow! never would hav thought of that!

raz (author)seany2006-09-21


Coffee bean (author)2006-09-05

try throwing a a full soda can ( it explodes like a grenade).

KC_kingcobra (author)2006-09-05

huh??comon i used to do this in grade 3...

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"...

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.
