PaperShooters Lets You Get Your Tactical Spitwad Fight On…

Okay, this DEFINITELY brings back some memories from grade school and being a little brat.  The difference being that this kicks it up a notch.  It may not be a firearm, but I can see this bringing a smile to many a face.

PaperShooters is running a crowdsourced campaign for a kit that allows you to build a replica that fires tissue paper ammo.  They have already reached their goal, so the campaign will fund.

Mold to make ammo yourself from ordinary paper

Tissue Paper ammo: Never be trapped by ammo prices again…

From the PaperShooters HQ:

1. They’re fun
2. Something you can shoot around the house with endangering furniture, pets or each other
3. They requires a level of attention to build
4. The outer skins are completely customisable, so kids (and adults) can create their own versions of popular guns.
5. No constantly buying more ammo!
5. Did I mention they’re fun?

This product also reminds me of building models as a kid, but rather than a plastic doohickey that just sits on a shelf, you can have fun with this–though I’m not sure my wife would be excited about me stalking our pets with it… 🙂 In any case, I think my grandkids may have a cool gift this holiday season.

Give their Kickstarter a look:

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    Hm, I don’t see real advantages over bright colored Airsofts with below 0,5 Joule energy output, besides the fact, that you can make your own projectiles (out of paper). But this “advantage” is reduced by the fact, that you nee brass for firing it. And this is the reason why even Airsofts with brass ejection never will become popular for gaming, since the brass costs way more than a bag with 5000 BBs,

    • Jeff Smith

      One advantage would be that the paper is considerably softer than airsoft BBs. I’d be worried about breaking glass of anything fragile with an airsoft gun, but not so much with this.

        Wait until someone starts mixing a resin with the tissue paper.

    • iksnilol

      The advantage is that it doesn’t dent or hurt stuff? Hitting a cat with a paper ball might annoy it, hitting it with a BB (whether steel or plastic) will hurt it.

        The author should have his head checked for saying it will be fun to stalk and shoot the pets..
        I bet he also enjoys pulling the wings off flies and using a magnifying glass on ants.
        There is a clinical term for this.

        • Doc Rader

          Context is everything… Read the bullet points from the release and frame my statement with that in mind.

          • superflex

            Fair enough.

          • Giolli Joker

            Read them – No.2 has a “with” that should be “without”. 😉

        • iksnilol

          Well, to be fair; not all psychopaths are bad. You probably know way more of them than you think you do.

          But pulling wings off flies and the like isn’t a good sign.

          To me the paper projectile seems way safer in regards to ricochets and the like compared to BBs.

    “2. something you can shoot around the house WITH endangering furniture, pets or each other” typo? Or necessary applications?

    • DIR911911 .

      haha , totally corrected that in my head

    • Doc Rader

      Yeah, I cut and paste quotes. My brain autocorrected that too… 🙂

  • iksnilol

    Straight pull and AR charging handle? Just… just no.

    Hope they make a pump action or sidecharging version.

  • superflex

    Just paint one black and wait for a LEO to empty their magazine on you.
    Great gift for kids who dont realize the consequences of their actions.

    Snow or ice be fun in it

    So I have to pick up shells and the paper wads? (Sorry, I’m not leaving bits of paper around my house.) Why don’t I just play Nerf and pick up the foam darts?

  • YS

    No one’s going to comment about the poor trigger discipline in the first picture?

    • Daniel Prickett

      I know right.? Crazy that a guy in a completely controlled environment with a plastic toy that shoots paper would have such horrible trigger discipline. Come on.
