Introduction: How to Make a Office Size, Collapsable Blowgun

In this instructable, i will teach you how to make a collapsable blow gun that shoot anything around your office with a little string!

Step 1: Materials

All you need for materials are some cap pens (the more the longer)that you can remove the body from everything (i used "comfort stic" from staples), a straw, tape, scissors and string (for the ammo).

Step 2: Cut the Straw

Just cut the straw into little segments and push them into the pen bodies and tape them.

Step 3: Shoot 'em Up!

Just push the straws protruding out of the pens into another pen body ending with the pen body without a straw.

How exactly do you shoot string? Do you roll it into a ball?

Hmmm, I would suggest that the connectors go on the outside which is the reason why the missiles are getting caught up inside as they will catch on the straws. A good blow pipe should be smooth and have the missile at the far end, or breach, to allow it to accelerate the full length. I imagine if anyone used this in my office they would get their lights punched out :)

Yes i just couldn't find anything that can go on the outside and yes anyone using one of these in most offices would suffer but i called it office-sized because it is mini
