http://www.instructables.com/id/Bic-pen--bow-%26-arrow/this is a bow and arrow made of a clear bic pen similar to the regular bic pen bow and arrow created by postapoc with a few moderations that could possibly make it better. (link to bow and arrow by postapoc at beginning) please comment :-)

Step 4: Grip or long thing

put the pen grip into the hole that you just made. you can also use the long thing that was used in the other bow and arrow but the grip is better because it is shorter and wider. shortness is good because the ammo will get to the rubber band quickey therefore more power. wideness is good because you can use a lot different ammunitions. ( 2 pictures)

Step 5: Rubber band

now cut 2 notches at the top and bottom of the pen to hold the rubber band in place. once you have cut these slide the rubber bands in place.

Step 6: Launch

put your ammo (the ink canister works very well) through the grip or long thing to the rubber band. then pull back the rubber band with the ammo to your desired power and let go.

If you cut the arrows down you can fit a few of them and the bow inside of an altoids tin.

you could do that or use q-tips. how much did you cut them down to?

Just small enough to fit in the tin. Q-tips sound like a good idea though, I'll give that a try.

a kid brought it in to school with q-tips and he shot one into my. literally between the socket and actual eyeball.
into an eyeball that could blind someone

ok? i joined like 2 months ago, so whats your point?
Jake_C EPL5 years ago
I'm not saying you intentionally stole it, but look up instructables before you post your idea to see if their are any that are almost identical. If there is a big difference, than post it, but if not, don't.
EPL (author)  Jake_C5 years ago
I realize there are a lot of these types of instrucatbles. this has some small differences such as the grip going through the pen. its a bit shorter also. its clear and looks better.the arrow is smaller.
Jake_C EPL5 years ago
Ok....
he made this because their is the bic grip stick pens that are different than the ones the other dude uses

BTW, I'm not just talking about you, if I felt like wasting 10 minutes, I could find at least 10 of these, I'm not trying to offend.
