Hi Graham,
I'm having troubles with this machine gun :x , I can't get to make the third small loop otherwise I end up to short for the big one. I tried several times (making the loops smaller, pulling before to inflate...), but nothing works so far. Well it still looks nice with two loops, but I really would like to do it as it is shown.

thanks
Julien

Glad you like the gun, it's only two loops around though, so hopefully you have it. Can you post a picture for us to see?

I clicked thru to the esquire gun which has the two loops, the space gun is three loops so really pre-stretch the balloon and then when you inflate the balloon stretch it again, you will probably then end up with four loops then :)

My little one Brandon loves this model. He worked out himself the more twists he puts in the handle the louder the bang.
