Build a homemade water gun or water balloon launcher and tell us about it.

You can get them at Ace, Lowe's, Home Depot, Menards... wherever Hardware is sold.
And this goes in the Tech dept... moving...
Whatever music you listen to probably sucks.

Bike innertubes are cheap, don't worry about them. I don't think you'd fork over more than $10 for 3.

I am afraid that this won't work. You can not make an APH and Collosus it. The APH is air pressure, and mods such as Collosus and the K-mod will not work. You can however made a CPS homemade like I have (and others have).

$40 if your lucky. Unlikely for your first homeade. Up to $100 depending on what you add/subtract, or change.

If you just need the valve, you'd be better off buying the valves in the automotive department of a store or getting old bike tubes from bikes in the garbage (like I used to do).

I used to get all kinds of good stuff out of the trash. My favorite thing that I brought home was a 27" TV. I was too young and weak at the time to carry it (I'm 22 now.) I ended up using my friend's skateboard to bring it home. I think it just needed an new diode rectifier, and I was watching the Duck Tales movie that night. (It later had another more serious problem, but it was fun while it lasted.)

I spent about $110 (USD) on a huge beastly pneumatic launcher (4" chambers, 3" barrel, sprinkler solenoid valve, etc.). I would expect a smaller homebuilt water gun to cost a lot less than that.
