Picture of tiny shooter
Shoots small bits of pencil tips/toothpicks and stuff  as ammo!

One can make this in <15 minutes with stuff around

Take safety precautions while making and using the same as it shoots really far the ammo

Step 1: In action

Step 5: Mechanism contd.

Pass the rubber band in the plunger end

Make a trigger by rolling the wire with a loop in the center


Tie up the gun-end wire as shown

Step 8: Finishing touches


The trigger needs to be pressed in the aperture so as to hold the plunger when armed,

when pulled it can shoot your ammo

You can also use a tiny rubber band to press the trigger in place (not shown here)

Use your imagination and design other accessories like gun sights, handles etc.

good idea..

What lollipop brand is that? And where did you get the elastic from? This is a very entertaining, time killing project. I love it! :)

Not sure about the brand, any hollow tube, even from a refill can be used. The elastic was from a tag, you can use a good rubber-band instead, the ones that last a bit longer

I'm going to make my own, but a bit bigger, using a pen tube... It's more resourceful in my house than a lollipop stick.
I did that with a pen tube, but a different design, the pen tube soon broke, would recommend reinforcing the end that will take the rest of the force of the plunger

Hi
its just a rectangular box with losely held 'ammo" which loads itself by gravity, when fitted over the barrel top.

Hope this helps as I am out of my home to post the same in action
