Simple. Put in ammo, pull back, pull trigger.


HOWEVER, when pulling trigger, your hand must be on the slide to keep it from moving.

ROFL! XD I once was fooling around with a friend and we made these awesome little pen snipers :P (I was a gun maker back then already) We used the spring to fire all types of paper spit-balls I then decided to put on the actual front of the pen on the sniper I thought it would be funny if i aimed it at my mouth but, then i accidentally pulled the trigger I had to swallow it because i would choke if i wouldn't. and now there is a frickin' pen front inside of me! xD
 DID THE PEN HAVE INK IN IT??????????
Thats really bad. Did it still have ink in it?
i was biting the top off a pen and got ink all over mouth

Still not all that tasty...
