Make a Cheap Effective Bb Gun




About: i like to have fun

first instructable please be nice and this is a cheap easy bb gun will hurt if shot trust me i had blood blisters from it do not use on a human use on paper targets

Step 1: Items Needed

1.ur gonna need a party balloon any color they sell them in good amount packs probally at drug stores 2.ur gonna need round a.k.a. ammo objects that fit into the hole of a soda bottle 3. soda bottle any cheap one maybe a 20oz. bottle or one from the garbage if from garbage clean it !! 4. good nice size rubber bands u need it thick not thin, thin will break easily.

Step 2: Cutting the Balloon

the first thing you need to do is cut the balloon right around the neck of it maybe a little lower sorry no picture for the whole balloon

Step 3: Cut the Bottle

your going to need to cut the soda bottle right near the top as close as you can to the opening below the circle rim look on the picture its below the screw on area thats as close as i was able to get

Step 4: Assembly

1.after you have the bottle top and the balloon after it has been cut its time to start assembly*yay* first you'll need to take the balloon and stretch it over the screw on piece of the bottle top put it down to the rim as in the first photo
2.take the rubber band around where the balloon meets the soda bottle and start twisting and wrapping the rubber band around it took me five wraps to make sure the rubber band is tightly wrapped around the balloon in picture two
3. opitional put some flour or some baby powder inside the balloon and swish it around it helps make sure the balloon dosen't stick to itself

Step 5: Using, Loading

to use your bb gun put some type of pebble size thing into the balloon grab onto the soda bottle around where the rubber band is pull back the balloon while grabbing the ammo at the same time aim and shoot at something
i sugest a box cheap easy and its fun

Step 6: Closer and Warning

please if you get into trouble IT IS NOT MY FAULT!!!!!!!!!! you take responsbillity for what you do with it and please remember the be nice policy i would love some comments on how to improve and if you have any videos of you using it or building it please send it to me so i can upload it to the instructable i cannot tell you the "fps" feet per second cause i have not tested it and if u know it please tell i know that i got a blood welt from a plastic bb so please do not shoot anything that can feel pain oh and have fun with it it should only cost about 3-5 dollars at most

    Hi there NN. A cool little shooter for sure. Further to the comments by noahw and GorillazMiko, some punctuation would go a long way towards making the 'ible' easier to read and understand. Thanks for sharing!

    Isn't this just a slingshot, or am I missing something?

    these are cool,but the only problem with the baloons is that they're made of thin rubber so you pretty much have to be careful, otherwise it will rip. anyway, cool gun!!! very nice indeed. btw, if you stretch the baloon back far enough, it's capable of breaking an unused window, with a ball-bearing!!
