Step 1: Materials

This is what you will need:
1 roll of duct tape
5 feet of pvc pipe
3 "T" connections
3, 90 degree connections
2, 45 degree connections
3, end caps

Step 2: Cutting

You will need to cut 12 pieces:
1, 1 1/2 inch piece
1, 3 inch piece
1, 3/8 inch piece
3, 4 inch pieces
3, 6 inch pieces
2, 7 inch pieces
1, 8 inch piece

The next step will tell you how to assemble it.

Step 3: Assembly

Unlike some shooters, my shooter starts at the back end.

First: take the 1 1/2 inch piece, a cap, and a 45 degree angle connection, and put them together.

Second: Take 2, 7 inch pieces, a 45 degree angle connection, 2, 90 degree connections, and a 4 inch piece, and put them together as shown.

Third: Take 2,4 inch pieces, an 8 inch piece, a 90 degree connection , and a "T" connection, and put them together as shown.

Fourth: Take 2 "T" connections, 2 end caps, 3, 6 inch pieces, and the last two pieces. Put them together as shown.

Step 4: Have Fun!

     Remember: I am not responsible for any marshmallow/pvc related injuries. This is my first instructable. Have fun, but be responsible.

    I have been studying these things as of lately, and can't help but wonder... There HAS to be a way to make these like this (with a stock) without having to tape the thing. Otherwise... nice job!
