Ping pong ball guns, made for holiday gifts for friends and family. They shoot family good distance. Based on design concept from DMcKay and WAWOODButcher As always thanks to fellow lumber jocks for great project ideas. Made from scraps of oak and maple. Finished with 3 coats of poly and one finished w/ stain and poly. Let me know what you think. I am sure the kids will love them.

Awesome gun-toys. Good thing is that they are not so dangerous, you can’t hurt anybody with ping balls.

Those will create a lot of fun. Nice job. I made up some marshmallow shooting crossbow pistols one year and gave them out. They were great fun.

I think the kids will love them. That’s what I think :-)

And maybe consider all the same color balls in each gun. That way they can tell “who shot who” when they’re keeping score !
