Step 1: Pieces and Instructions to Shoot
Hello I have made a PVC baking soda and vinegar gun that should work really well if you make it properly. In order to shoot, open the plug, then open the ball valve bellow the plug next take a funnel and add in 1 table spoon of baking soda, next close the other valve and then close one that you just opened then pour in the vinegar. Pour the vinegar to the rim of the PVC then screw in the plug. To fire open the valve below the plug shake and wait 10 seconds then release the other valve and if done right' it will fire. For projectiles you can use potatoes, apples, and paper cone rockets . Btw, for Instructions for the paper cone rocket please ask in the comment box below. To load apples or potatoes into gun try squeezing them on the top of the PVC like a potato gun. Aim in a safe direction, do not aim at people, make sure you always have an adult to help you make and use it, and always, aways, always wear eye protection. I am not responsible for any injuries that may occur from use. Now here are the parts you will need.

1, 1 foot piece of PVC
