Money Gun

This Origami Money Gun can be made in two ways. The first method is easier but it makes a flat model. The second method involves rolling a dollar bill around a pencil which can be tricky, but it results in a more 3D version with a tubular barrel.

In terms of terminology, the word “gun” refers to any firearm. The term “pistol” often refers to any handgun that is not a revolver. A “revolver” is a handgun which has a revolving cylinder where the bullets are located. There is not enough details in this origami model to determine if it is a revolver or a pistol; thus it shall be called a gun.
