    I think someone should make an instructable on a marshmallow gun that is pre-pressurised and has the ability not to empty the whole chamber at once. A sort of paintball gun that shoots marshmallows.

    make sure the clay is on the side that you connect the barrel to, that is very important.

    I too, have one of these. me and my friends will run around shooting each other with these but we do not use marshmallows, we use Nerf darts, preferably the suction cup darts because the create a better seal. Mine is a sniper, it has a long barrel on it and i made a scope like thing and spray painted it black and green. Also, in the T-joint fill one side with clay and put a small hole in the clay, this increases range. Although you will have to increase or decrease the size of the hole until you have it set up for optimal range.

    Forgot to mention that my daughter's mallow gun was spray painted not just plain white.

    My 9yo daughter just got a marshmallow gun as a birthday present from her friend.  They had so much fun blowing the little mallows out.  Even I had fun with it.  Great idea.  I'm planning to make some for family and friends.

    This is fun to build and very inexpensive. Having made the one in the video below we plan to buy a bunch of pvc pipe and connectors and have a neighborhood-wide shooter-making session at our next block party. We've priced it out and we can make these for less than $2 if you buy the 10' length of pipe. We also plan to buy a pvc pipe cutter as the hack saw makes too much pvc dust and requires the extra step of sanding the edges.

    Basically a blowgun with handles stuck on the side. Save yourself some time, money and effort and just use a straight piece of pipe.

    That's not as cool looking, besides this is far more functional (better accuracy)

    no, the T joint provides a critical pressure/release mechanism which causes it to shoot much farther than a blowgun.

    I like the blowgun just the same, i think it works great. The shooter jams unlike the blowgun. The shooter looks cooler than a blowgun, so i painted mine, Sorry about the crappy camera.

    Well, then go even simpler and just throw the marshmallows. The gun handles are part of what make it "cool" too.

    Have you ever tried to throw something as small and light as a marshmellow? Call me if you go over 2 yards!

    As long as you have an unbroken(no joints) length of pipe and the right size, these will do nerf too. I made one that was one long tube, then the handles were T's one size too big, with tape around the barrel to make them stay put. Works well. Just remember no joints or it will jam.

    awesome! let me give you a few pointers. a longer barrel makes more accurate shots, so lengthen it to about a foot. also, the "improvement" made by Celene in the comic would not work. the marshmellow would get jammed into one of them, than the others would let the air out. also the marshmellows would not get into the other 4 barrels
