I found that metal bbs work the best but other things such as skittles work good too. airsoft bbs are too light and don't work as well

the bbs didn't go through the aluminum can but sure did make dents in it

I forgot to mention that to shoot all you do is drop projectile in balloon and pull back while holding the projectile with one hand while the other is holding on to the water bottle rim. simply let go and watch how far it will go but please don't shoot any person or animal as it can cause serious damage or injury

No problem!! make sure they don't shoot each other because I got shot and it hurt!!!
