This is pretty neat! no pun intended with Blazin Marshmallow as my screen name haha....

To build your own Marshmallow Gun (or "Shooter" or "Launcher")...

•You can purchase the materials at your local hardware store for a couple of bucks, and reuse the marshmallows before they become sticky.
•If you don't have pvc pipe cutters, they are worth the investment for about $10. You can use a hack saw if you need, just be sure to clean out the little filings.
Materials:

1/2" PVC pipe of the following sizes:

•(1) 9"
•(1) 7"
•(2) 4"
•(2) 2"
•(1) 3"
•(2) 90 degree elbows
•(2) T's (2) caps

Here is a video from YouTube that explains it better than i can.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SOyVOHudO8

The dimensions are a little different, but you get the general idea. Let me know if you have trouble.

This little guy can shoot mini-marshallows 15-20 feet with pretty good accuracy!

A great gizmo for indoor target practice on rainy days.

Do not shoot at people or animals, of course!

Sounds like fun. I'm heading out to buy stuff now to surprise my son with it when he comes home tomorrow. He's gonna love it!

Just made my shooter. I used the measurements from the video and it works just fine. The cat wasn't too happy with my amusement. MEOWWWWWW!!!

I decided to just make one for myself and have enough supplies for my son to make himself one. He needs to learn how to use tools. Him and a hacksaw...uh oh.

It's a very inexpensive venture. The 10' of pvc and enough elbows, caps and Ts for 2 only cost $5.05 at Lowe's. Still plenty of pvc left for 2 more. I see a marshmallow shooter side job in my future. $5 each. Beats paying $24.99 or more for them in the stores.

A word of advice about these marshmallow shooters I built one and within 5 minutes I was in trouble.The wife failed to find the humor in being hit with marshmallows and Not a good idea to let the kids try them out in the house dang marshmallows every where.within a hour a entire bag was gone

I made 4 so far and used different colored electrical tape so everyone knew which one was theirs. All of this was supposed to be fun for the son, but he won't make his. Party pooper! He doesn't get to use anyone else's though. Posting pic now.

I've made 7 of them so far and I'm taking parts with me to camp to see how many I can sell to the kids. LOL Cost about $2 each to make.
