Introduction: 6 Shot Dart Bazooka

A plastic straw bazooka
capable of shooting
paper darts around 20 feet.
And with one object in mind,
annoyance.
See step 5 for alternate q-tip
gun version.

Step 1: Gather Materials

you will need
scotch tape,
about 5 straws,
scissors,
and an old and/or boring
magizine.

For alternate version
use super glue,
q-tips,pill bottle,
syringe,paperclip,
,something to cut the paperclip,
two nails,two small
wires,a 9volt battery,
and all supplies for the original
except the magazine

Step 2: Making the Ammo Cartridge

This is the revolver style
part that houses the darts.
First,cut 6 equal sections
about 1 in. long.
Then lay them side by side
on a piece of scotch tape.
Then,make them into a circle
with the tape on the inside.
After that,put another ring
around the cartridge of
scotch tape.Then,put a straw
about 2in. long through the
ring.

Step 3: Make Barrel and Mouth Piece

The barrel and mouthpiece.
(duh)
Cut a 4 in. long piece for
the barrel and a 1 in.
long piece for the mouthpiece.
If you use a longer barrel it will have a better aim
but decrease power and vica versa.
Attach them to the center piece
of the ammo cartridge with scotch tape
in the order shown below.
Then assemble the final bazooka.
it should look similar to the 2nd
image.

Step 4: Make the Ammo

Follow this link to build the darts then,cut off the back end so the tip fits the cartridge.Crush the tip of the dart and then cut it at a 45 degree angle. Or,use a warhead.use the tips of the darts you makeneedle ammo here

Step 5: Alternate Version (Q-Tip Gun)

make the bazooka with these revisions
and attach the q-tip gun
cut hole in side for syringe with gasoline or
hairspray.be sure to super glue it in
place so it doesn't get blown off.
Scotch tape the barrel to the straw snd super glue or tape the barrel into the pill bottle.For ammo you can use a long paper dart with a warhead or a q-tip,the q-tip helps for target practice on the wall.

Never point this at any living thing or object that doesn't belong to you,that is why there are targets.

If, you are aiming to make this more durable, dump out the straws and scotch tape, and get some hot glue/superglue, and BIC pens.

The idea at it's ocnception was similar to a spud gun. Spray some hairspray into the bottle, create a spark with the 9v.

paper warrior made it! (author)2007-08-08

ok, ok, ok. Slide the Drum over the 3in. peice. Center it in the middle. tape the mouth peice onto one side of the drum and the barrel onto the other. Look at the finished pic for more help.

there like the barrels on a revolver, they hold the ammo and line up with the barrel to fire.

evil idea! soak q-tip tip in flammable substance and attach a lit candle to the end of the barrel so the q-tips catch on fire and burn things!

This is great, the actual dart shooter isn't too brilliant but the idea is really good. You could easily put this idea onto a Spud Gun to make it semi-auto.

ahah! greate instructable ever since i was reading the comments i figured it out! at first i didnt get it but then when you posted a comment on rotating the chamber after firing i figured it out so first you just make the chamber thing the you place the 3 inch straw inside after that theres like space at the sides of the 3 inch straw so you place the 4 inch 1 in the front and the mouth piece in the leaving some space for the top of the chamber so you can turn it!ureka!or how ever you spell it

If you used bendie straws and added an extra join you could blow through all the straws at once and it would be like a dart-shotgun thing. It would be slightly difficult to reload though.

The is tape on the inside and outside of the cartridge, when you join the ends of the clip the first bit of tape will be on the inside.
