Growler filler for bottles

i like filling a 6 pack of bottles or so out of each keg. I don’t want to buy a beer gun. I have tried several times to use beirmunchers beer gun but I suck at it. Out of 8 bottles, I think I got 2 filled properly. I turned the pressure to the c02 off and slowly opened it until i just saw the dial neeedle move (2 or less psi). I put the wand into the bottom of the bottle with the stopper snug and open the picnic tap. all goes ok until i get into the neck then it just turns to foam and won’t stop. After capping and the foam dies down the neck is empty. Flat beer in less than 24 hrs. P.S. - I chill the bottles, tap, wand, and stopper. i’ve watched 2 different videos and feel like i’m doing what i’m being told but it’s just not working for me. I’m sure i’ll keep trying but I did have a little brain fart…growlers are filled all the time with just a tube…a growler is just a big bottle. Could i not just use that?

Others had the same question. Link to some replies.
