This is my first instructable but I'm happy to accept any criticism!!
I'm going to show YOU today how to make a really great peg-gun, just be careful when handling it!
This is used basically to shoot paper targets, water balloons tied on a tree, a wall or fence, etc.
Step 1: What You Need:
- A piece of wood (1 foot long)
- Wooden pegs
- Rubber bands (all sizes are good)
- A saw. That's all!
Step 2: Step 1
Step 3: Step 2
Step 4: Step 3
Step 5: Step 4
You have made the peg gun. Now you shall make the ammo that goes with it.
Step 6: Step 5
The ammo is relatively easy to make. First of all take apart the other pegs you have gathered.
Step 7: Step 6
Step 8: Step 7
IMPORTANT: HOLD YOUR THUMB ON THE PEG WHEN LOADING! STRETCH THE RUBBER BAND TO THE RIDGE YOU MADE EARLIER WHILST HOLDING THE PEG TRIGGER. I AM SAYING THIS BECAUSE IT COULD GO OFF AND REALLY HURT YOUR THUMB AT CLOSE RANGE!!!
Step 9: WHAT ELSE COULD YOU DO?
Your problems are now answered! Here is what you could change:
- Length of your wood and rubber band.
- Paint the wood.
- Target practice with someone who has made one! (but don't shoot them!)
- How far can you shoot the peg?
- Shoot bottles/cans of a wall
