Also I was going to make a centred uzi, but my uzi-watergun got thrown out.
My guess is to put the toy gun against a white background (paper? sheet?) , photo it then edit it on the computer

With the proper chromakey background (a solid green or blue; a color not in the item you are trying to capture) and good software (e.g. Photoshop) it can be rather easy to cut out. Indeed, I would think it would be too onerous to make a sprite in this matter if it weren't relatively easy to do each frame. The hard part is in the setup: the prop/person, proper background, and proper lighting. Then its just fooling around with batch setting in Photoshop till it properly processes your stack and you are well on your way to a sprite
