Introduction: Hidden Crossbow

     Looks like a crossbow, but technically it's a slingshot. I saw instructions for a BIC pen "Bow and Arrow" on the site and decided to step it up a notch.
     This contraption is made to be worn under a loose sleeve, hidden from sight. It shoots the ink cartridge of a ball-point pen. The trigger (a clothespin) is rigged to fire when I flick my wrist back.

mine doesn't work (despite my picture, i am not a troll)

Just a suggestion: you could use a duct tape sleeve instead of a Popsicle stick one so its comfortable.

cool very cool if you did a dedlear crossbow would even better but it´s still very cool

Hey, cool crossbow, is there anyway to create  a hidden blade mechanism?
