Picture of 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!

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

thats the fun part!

lol true

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

Kendallkip (author)four_eyes9542008-01-19

yea, where YOU live

orangesrhyme (author)Kendallkip2008-07-15

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.

four_eyes954 (author)Kendallkip2008-01-26

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.

Francais! La langue de mes ancetres.

Kiteman (author)Whaleman2007-12-16

Non ! La langue de mes ennemis héréditaires !

Kiteman (author)PyroManiac962008-06-18


PyroManiac96 (author)Kiteman2008-06-23

hooray for babel fish, our online savior

Kendallkip (author)Kiteman2007-12-16

I don't know anything you guys are saying!!!

walrusboy10 (author)Kiteman2008-05-23

Boo! Espanol es la lengua mas buena! Francais es para baguettes.

orangesrhyme (author)walrusboy102008-07-15

Si, Frances es no bueno. (sorry, frances.)

walrusboy10 (author)orangesrhyme2008-07-15

Espanol es una lengua para hombres muy fuerte y grande. Francais es una lengua para senioritas.

Whaleman (author)Kiteman2007-12-16

Ne me tuez pas parce que je suis francais! Svp?

Kiteman (author)Whaleman2007-12-16

Détendez, mon ami! Vous n'êtes pas mon ennemi, vos ancêtres où les ennemis de mes ancêtres. (Babelfish n'est-il pas utile? Je souhaite juste que les accents soient venus à travers correctement.)

Whaleman (author)Kiteman2007-12-16

Je suis heureux que nous puissions vivre dans la paix, parce que nos ancetres sont longtemps morts (a moins qu'ils sont des zombis que....), viennent, nous laissent se dorent dans le bonheur eternel que la paix apporte!

Kiteman (author)Whaleman2007-12-16

Pourquoi oui ! Hourra pendant les vies harmonieuses et le logiciel libre de transltion !

Whaleman (author)Kiteman2007-12-16

Entendez pour entendre! Hmmm, notez-vous que Bablefish met un espace après ponctuation?

Kiteman (author)Whaleman2007-12-17

Oui, et le logiciel de ce forum fait un désordre des accents français.

Kiteman (author)Kiteman2007-12-17


Whaleman (author)Kiteman2007-12-17

Oui, je vois. C'est pourquoi je n'emploie pas les accents. Je les remplace habituellement avec les lettres qu'ils seraient sans accents.

orangesrhyme (author)Whaleman2008-07-15

No hablo frances. Hablo espanol. Kite-hombre, hablas espanol?

Whaleman (author)orangesrhyme2008-07-15

No sé ...

Speak English, not text or sms speak. This site is used by people of many nations, not all of whom speak correct English (or, failing that, correct American). You should show some pride in your work, and respect for other users, by checking your spelling and grammer. If you don't, translation software such as babelfish cannot cope.
