A small clothespin gun that is easy to make and is very powerfull with very few and easy to find items. Can (depending on clothespin) can sometimes shoot through paper. note: can actualy cause some one to bleed/shoot eye out. Shooting sharp objects is not recomened. =)

Step 1: Whats needed:

there are a few things needed as said before:
wooden clothespin (plastic will NOT work). These can be bought in a pack of 50 for a few dollars
knife or bottle opener
small rubber band or any rubber band. Like clothespins can be bought in large quantiies cheaply
pair of tweezers (not needed but recomended for repairs/adjustments)

We used to build these when I was a kid. We would shot strike anywhere type matches up in the air and watch them light when they hit the sidewalk or pavement. I'd forgotten all about until now. Thanks for the refresher!
thanks no problem
