Shoots marshmallows. Didn't we used to have a guy around here toting marshmallows as the nerf ammo of the future? I guess this gun more or less proves it wasn't a completely rediculous idea. Also makes me rethink my stance on weather or not the ball blaster is moddable....

I saw that too, recently. It was because of their april fools thing, I was browsing the site and saw it, along with a pretty nice repeating rubber band gun. The range and accuracy are debatable condsidering the ammunition; still, a great gun in theory.

I saw this gun a few weeks ago at an Urban Outfitters at Woodfield mall near Chicago. The problem was the store was heavily overpriced and the gun was like $28. It did look pretty cool though.

I remember those posts. That guy was using marshmallows to shoot his dog but he had to stop because his dog kept eating the ammo and got so sick they had to go to the vet. It was a pretty funny story.

This beats your lousy marshmallow shooter.

And so does this this.
:)

Cool find though. I think foam is a better ammunition than a mix between sugar and air. I also think that parents would rather buy their children foam guns than sugar guns because they don't want them to get hyper, but children would probaby want sugar guns more. That is, if they actually knew that marshmallows are mainly sugar and air, but most kids don't know that :).

Sporkboy, that's a kind of funny story. Poor dog though...

Langley, I just bought the gun. It is pretty cool. You can buy marshmallows from them or just buy Kraft Minis instead, they recommend them. It fires the fake ones about 25-30 feet holding the gun level. I'll be trying it out at the show next week when I get it. Come check it out.
