Got 3 seconds and a normal bic pen and a rubber band? Then you might want to check this out.

Step 1: Materials

All you need is a normal BIC pen (with the cap) and one rubber band.

Step 2: Place the rubber band on your fingers.

Take the rubber band and place it one your thumb and middle finger and spread them apart so that the rubber band it taut.

Step 3: Insert the pen

Slip the cap inbetween the rubber band. Make sure that clip is fully on the rubber band.

Step 4: Fire!

Pull back the pen and the cap will go flying!
bad donut youve done it again
I agree with Aesir, and by the way i shot my self in the leg w1ith a hobby rubber band and gave my self a nice welt! Nice Istructable!
Oh jeez your like my brother " I wonder what this hot wire fence does"
this is a good idea but there is no need for an insructable. i think almost every living person knows how to do this
oh hi u might not remember me but u were the one who critcized me for making a statement... just because ur a jerk with nothing better to do than criticize kids doesnt mean u can go around offending others.
But. That doesn't mean you should be a jerk either
actually i am a kid too
i know you your the kid down the street with mental dissabiltys
"dissabilitys" is spelled disabilities. Just for the record.
Oh, and I didn't criticize you for making a statement, I criticized you for being stupid
please explain to me how i was being stupid!!!
Because you're just putting out there that you're under the age limit and it was for no reason. You said after a sentence "BTW IM 11"! Please explain how that wasn't stupid.
I bet you could find children in iscolated tribes in the middle of the pacific doing this.
I've been trying to make a full pen-gun but this is WAY simpler. Thanks!
Today bought a pair of shoes nobility and beautiful is very cheap. In beautyclpumps.com
Me too exept she is 2 years older than me lol
It also works better with pinkty and thumb.
It is even better with just cap.
I do this stuff all the time during class and never get in trouble and all this stuff or most of it at least i have fully memorized i have even hit my teacher a few times and my friends ask me how i make this stuff and i refuse to show them.(Best to let them figure it out them selves:)
you should put a push pin on the end of it :P
I once did that with a different pen and its cap shattered when it hit the table.
I found this at officeguns.com 5 weeks ago
i found it 3 years ago!
Same here, love that place. Someone also posted another officeguns.com instructable. I think its called Ruler of the Office.
saw it too
hahaha girl hands and seriously, who couldnt figure this out for themselves?
me...i think
This whole hand thing is pretty ridiculous. Lemme states these facts: 1. My hands are not teeny its just the pose their in and the camera 2. I'm not a girl 3. This instrucables only takes three seconds so it has to be easy ;)

Ohhhhhh Chaos as in screwin with people. I thought this was another Random Oscillating Magnetic Pendulum lol. This is still neat though
lol. Yeah, those ROMPs are preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetty annoying!
At least the ROMP instructables had some complex details laid out in easy steps for people to follow. And how are they annoying? There were only three of them. I did a full sized instructable. Then after a conversation, I made a portable one (which looks pretty sweet, if I do say so myself) and Stormed posted another one in his own design. Compare them, if you will, and you'll see that the designs are totally different.
Your hands look teeny.
Thats because my digital camera is crappy and takes about 1.5 seconds to take the picture. Because no one was around to take a picture, i had to press the button, step about 5 feet from the camera because otherwise it would be out of focus, and pose. All in 1.5 seconds.
Teeny as in small or teeny as in teenager? I say they almost look female.
