Me and my friend have figured out that the Original Crayola markers work very good because they are just small enough to fit the barrel but seal good enough to stay in <b>without</b> using a wad of paper. Any marker that is the same size like Roseart will also work. The Roseart packs of 11 are roughly $2.00 at Wal Mart while the Crayolas are almost $3.00

Does it color your barrel on the way out? Or does it color the target?

Probably the target. Pull the cap off and you can have a bullseye contest!

I have a 1/2" barrel and i like to shoot cranberries. they make a huge mess. they are just like a paintball with an extreamly hard shell.

Plaster of paris! Also, this topic has been mentioned in the past I think.

baby carrots are always nice. I use paper darts in my 1/2" ball valve pistol, but anything more powerful just shreds them.

Yeah, just make sure the combustion gases (if it's a combustion, duh)dont melt the crayon.
