Bean Shooter

Image via:

Some people don’t want to buy BB guns, but I have a very useful substitution.  I call it the bean shooter, it is made of the top 2 inches of a empty two liter soda bottle, a balloon, and a sack of what ever kind of beans you can find that fits through the top of the soda bottle.  First, cut around the soda bottle about one to one and a half inches below the soda cap.  Second, take off the cap, wrap the mouth piece of the balloon around the area where the soda cap was.  You may need to use a rubber band to keep the balloon in place.  Once you get the shooter put together, put a couple beans into the open side and shoot some targets.  My friends and I would set up a course, and shoot each other.  It makes it more fun when you have alot of friends playing on teams.  It is elimination, last team standing wins.  Be sure to wear either goggles or glasses to protect your eyes.  If you’re one of those people with a low pain tolerance, you can strap a couple pillows to yourself, but its not as much fun.  Plus your friends will laugh at you trying to duct tape them to yourself.  Have fun and be safe!  Let me know how your bean wars go!
