You now have a fun mini crossbow, ready for some target practice!

Try using a cardboard box as a target, or if you're using the fire arrows, only use them outside, somewhere safe where nothing can catch fire, and keep some water close by just in case. Make sure you don't hold the fire arrow in the crossbow for too long so you don't set the stick or bottle top on fire.

I have 3 mini weapons of mass destruction books and this is in one of them, plus I can make a lot more so if you want me to start posting instructions on them say "instruct"

You could add a strike pad to this and the match will ignite upon release, this will guarantee it stays lit during flight
works great, hot glue makes it hold great
good but can u write instruction to make it instead of video...please
Cool but you should try and make it look nicer
