Miniature guns are novelty custom, unique, and sometime downright crude! Common construction materials often include pill bottles or pens. Show us your work!

As above, they fly well considering they dont have fletchings or spin?

Section density. Head heavy with light tail. Will fly straighter if it had fins. I had plans to print a rifled barrel for a nerf gun and test out but haven't got the time.

Also a high-drag tail.

Relevant discussion and testing.
