It's summer in the UK - and, perhaps unusually, it's also hot. So what better way to cope than retreat into the misty summers of your youth, and buy a small arsenal of water guns?
The range and potential power of water pistols has increased massively in recent years. From military-style home-use water cannons, to high-pressure cleaning rifles, the water arms race has spiralled wonderfully out of control since you last picked up a Nerf water gun and committed your first H2O-based atrocities.
We've collected our nine favourite high-and-low-tech water guns for your delectation below.
We suggest picking some of these up right away - with two or three more weeks of hot sun forecast at least, you're going to need to raise your game.
