with halo reach out and halloween around the corner you may want to be a spartan, but what is a spartan with out his guns. this instructable will show you how to make a prop gun and though i made a magnum im sure you could apply this same consept to make almost any prop gun

Step 1: What You'll Need

foam board
hot glue gun
exacto knife or another cutting object
pencil or pen
white glue
electrical tape
sand paper
paint brush
 the computer you are using
and a printer

<p>It's pretty good, but I would have painted it more like the reference picture, probably painted it black then masked the handle and the bottom of the end, and used grey on the rest. Also you really should have used paper/cardstock to cover the sides and give it some detail. The trigger only needs to be one layer thick, so you should have made it 5 layers, had the first one be the full stencil, and the rest be the stencil without the trigger. You should make another tutorial where you use an x-acto knife to shape the top edges into a slant kind of thing, and make sure the stencil you use has an opening for the barrel, so you can put cardstock in it to hide the layers then stick an orange straw in it after painting, like the picture I have here. You should also note that after the thick part on the top (the top laser sight) has nothing after it on the top, so you can actually have a little laser light(which can be just some bottom to an eraser that has cardstock on it). If you do decide to follow these tips, and you get the paintjob down, you could sell this on etsy for like 10-15$, which considering it's made out of foam board is a LOT of profit. Just saiyan.</p>
<p>it looks really nice I just have a couple tips for you. I would try to round up the edges so it doesn't look so blocky and 2 please don't call that a clip. It's a magazine a clip is something that doesn't cover the end of the bullet. The ting you would use to load an m1 garand is a clip</p>
om nom nom. eating the foam.
Wow! i didn't know it was possible to turn foam into a tin?
can you post the pictrure you used i cant find it :(
love the end warning: YOULL GET SHOT BY A REAL GUN lol
This looks nice! If I end up doing this, the only thing I'm probably going to do is add a bit more detail. Nice work, man!
