The slingshot forum had these peashooters on a while back. They are very nice and much fun. I could not find whole peas at any stores so I then ordered the ones for 6mm and use airsoft BB. I think they would be easy to make, but I decided to support a Vet by buying from him. I actually took out some flies this spring and summer sitting on my porch. Skeeters also. Fairly close range within 10 feet. Surprised me to be able to hit them.

This brings back memories. We used to take a mouthful of peas and shoot a stream of peas at a target. Pelting the target like full auto. The range was pretty impressive.Not recommended but we would shoot each other. Good times. Kids are now stuck with video controllers in their hands

I have also shot a pin with a tuff of cotton on it from mine. It goes into cardboard pretty well. Gives me a reason to keep the pins from new shirts and the cotton from pill bottles.

I found the peas at a local store that caters to various ethnic backgrounds. The Middle eastern culture uses whole dry peas so check in those kind of stores
