Step 1: Materials
1 Long section of 1/2" diameter PVC pipe.
2 T connecters
1 Pipe cutter
1 Bag of mini marshmallows
Use a pipecutter to cut the PVC. Mouseover the parts below to see approximate lengths of each pipe.
Step 2: Place Nickel in T Connector
Place the nickel inside the bottom hole of one of the T connectors. This part will be where you place the handle of the gun and seals the barrels of the shooter.
Step 3: Add the Handle to the T
Insert the 4" PVC pipe to the bottom of the T connector where you placed the nickel.
Step 4: Adding the Mid Section of the Barrel
Next, insert the 4" PCV pipe into the T connector. This is the middle part of the shooter barrel.
Step 5: Adding the Mouth Piece
Then, insert the 2" PCV pipe (mouth piece) to the open end to the T connector.
Step 6: Adding the Second T Connector
Place the second T connector on the end of the mid barrel section. The T connector should have the middle hole facing up and tilted slightly to the left or right side depending on which hand you prefer to use when loading marshmallows.
Step 7: Add Ammo Clip
Insert a 4.5" section into the top of the T connector you just added. This is where you will load the marshmallows.
Step 8: Add the Rest of the Barrel
Add the last section of PVC pipe onto the T connector. The shooter is now complete and ready for marshmallow action.
Step 9: Loading the Shooter
Insert mini marshmallows into the ammo clip.
Step 10: Fire When Ready!
You are now ready for the marshmallow amageddon.
