YouTube homemade water guns

This one has over 87K views at the moment. It uses an electric pump powered by a 12 V battery. Probably fairly heavy for its size, and the power leaves much to be desired. But the lack of pumping could be useful.

Post any other interesting homemade water guns you find on YouTube here.

Interesting water balloon launcher that if it had a better hopper and sabot for water balloons would be pretty awesome.

Nice find. It would be easier to use a QEV instead of an air-actuated ball valve, but I guess they were improvising. If they switched to a QEV then they could in principle use the same air cylinder that they used to turn the ball valve to operate a hopper.

This one looks like it would be fun if it was scaled up.

Nice find. I'd be wary of using that in an actual water war due to the exposed batteries, but the power is better than I expected. Scaled up and with the batteries in a sealed compartment that could be a very nice blaster.

Might be worth looking into nozzles/valve assemblies like the one they used too. Those'll have good ergonomics, though the nozzle might not be the best.
