How to make a PVC pipe bottle rocket launcher

have you always wanted one of those cool bottle rocket launchers but couldnt afford one? well that happened to me, so I took action. I WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE A BOTTLE ROCKET LAUNCHER FOR UNDER 10 BUCKS! I think... I have not tested this yet so I'm not sure if it works. I am not responsible for the stupid things you decide to do with this. You will need a mask for protection. Also gloves are reccomended, but not required.

Step 1: Get a Pvc pipe, tape and a toilet paper roll

Do what the title says and tape the toilet paper roll to the pvc pipe. This will be the handle. Then tape the end of the pipe leaving about A half of a cm.

Step 2: Requires two people for this part

Alright, now fit the bottle rocket in the part with the tape. Heres where you need the 2nd person. Have someone light the bottle rocket in the back while you hold it, and viola! one rocket launcher! Dont forget to wear a paintball mask or something protective! Have fun!

just stop bein a jerk man. Go be a jerk on someone elses instructible
What firebert's trying to say, is that your original idea was good, it's just that the execution wasn't.
Apologies, just constructive criticism

ok
I agree with firebert. Thanks for teaching me how to use tape (I was a little confused there). Great instructable!
me and my friends just hold em by the stick, wait till the fuse is almost gone, then chuck it. Same with firecrackers, airsoft grenades, etc.
he's got a point. I have on of these with a scope though and it's all pvc with an exhaust pipe and bi-pod and stock and what not
yeah man, he put up a nice instructable stop being a jerk about it
but bottle rockets are illegal
depends on what state you are in. they're illegal in florida, but as soon as you cross over into alabama, you start seeing firework stores cause they arnt illegal there
They are illegal in Florida unless you promise to use them in an agricultural way. Scaring birds away from crops is one such use. (wink, wink) All of the fireworks stands in St. Pete/Clearwater make you sign an intention of use form. You can get pretty much anything you want here. Some of the larger stuff like M80s and such are quite dumbed down.
ahhhhhhhh ic, thanks

lol true
no there not i can pick the mup from my local piggly wiggly during the 4th of july

yea, where YOU live
I head down to Fort Hall reservation for mine. Less illegal, but not quite legal enough to launch them off without being worried about cops.
very true i live in the most secluded place in the world its called door county we have maybe 20 thousand people in the whole county if your lookin at wisconsin as a hand it would be the thumb
no one cares :)
me too but it may be the area u are in. like im in california so i'd have to get them illegally. just cant find where. I gave up looking a while ago.

A tip, don't tape on a handle, use a three way tee for PVC and add an extra 3-6 inches off of that.
