Make An Airsoft Gun Automatic

Homemade toy guns are often referred to as “airsoft” in homage to the imitation weapons made by the Japanese in the 1990s. You can make your own airsoft-type gun that will fire as rapidly as you can blow out a breath. A few household items are all that is needed, as are some plastic pellets from a hobby store. Adult supervision is also required if you are underage, since a drill will be used.

Instructions

1. Put the soft cloth on a table. Open the lid of the medicine pill bottle. Remove the pills from the medicine pill bottle. Put the pills safely away. Put the lid back onto the medicine pill bottle.

2. Stand the medicine pill bottle on the soft cloth with the bottom facing up.

3. Drill a small hole in the center of the bottom of the medicine pill bottle, using the portable drill.

4. Sand the sides of the hole that was drilled by moving the drill bit around the inside of the hole. Remove the drill bit from the hole.

5. Put the medicine pill bottle on its side on the soft cloth with the bottom facing to the right.

6. Cut the plastic drinking straw in half. Discard one of the halves. Put one end of the plastic drinking straw into the hole in the bottom of the medicine pill bottle.

7. Push the plastic drinking straw about two inches into the hole.

8. Apply bonding glue around the hole to secure the plastic drinking straw to the bottom of the medicine pill bottle. Let the bonding glue dry for six hours.

9. Drill a hole in the side of the medicine pill bottle, using the portable drill.

10. Sand the sides of the hole that was drilled by moving the drill bit around the inside of the hole. Remove the drill bit from the hole.

11. Remove the lid from the medicine pill bottle. Put 15-20 plastic pellets into the medicine pill bottle. Close the lid back onto the medicine pill bottle.

12. Put a couch cushion on the floor against a wall.

13. Hold the medicine pill bottle so that the “barrel” of your automatic airsoft gun is aimed at the cushion and the hole in the side is facing up

14. Place your mouth against the hole in the side.

15. Blow out your breath in short, quick breaths to fire pellet after pellet from your automatic airsoft gun at the couch cushion.

16. Continue “firing” your automatic airsoft gun until you run out of plastic pellets.
