Okay, so this is really going to be an incredibly simple build. I was just bored, enjoyed making my last instructable, and decided to see if I could throw something together with (guess what?) an Altoids tin and a Bic Pen. Naturally, my mind went to fire, but I didn't want to start a theme, and I couldn't see the Bic Pen being good for multiple flame related uses. So the next best thing, 'Wonder what I could make that you could put your eye out with?"
And thus, the birth of the Altoids Dart Gun.
Ever have a problem with that annoying neighbor that always borrows your stuff and doesn't return it? Perhaps the office mate that always seems to get the promotions that you deserve when they spend 80% of their day playing solitaire and the other 20% at the water cooler talking about the boat they're going to buy with their new raise?!?! But I digress...
Now, with the use of this new weapon, and some curare (this you'll have to find a recipe for on your own... If found, please notify me) you can take care of these pesky individuals. Or at least put your eye out for spite.
Don't let the simplicity of the build fool ya. This thing has some range.
Step 1: Collecting The Materials
You will need the following:
- JB Stik
- Bic Pen
- Thin copper wire (I used magnet wire.)
- Wire Hanger
- Bead (As close to the inside diameter of the Bic Pen as you can find.)
- Rubber Band
