Introduction: Flying Homemade Bolt Made From Antena Section

Use Caution when making these type of projects!

Step 1: What You Need:

  • Crossbow and arrows or you can improvise one of your own, I made arrows out of an old antenna and used the flight off an old plastic dart for stability in flight

Step 2:

  • Fill the antenna with gun powder or if you can not find any, use powder out of firework artillery shells. Just the launching portion contents, not the top part of the shell. I think it makes for a better blast

Step 3:

  • Find some shotgun primers or rifle primers a way to ignite your device on impact

Step 4: Finished Project

These types of arrows can be very dangerous and do some damage! They are great for triggering another device from a distance. I just wish that I had the capacity to mass produce them, they are very fun to shoot and very loud!!! I have freeze framed a picture of one impacting an old washer lid last night in my backyard from a distance of about 5 yards away. i recommend using extreme caution due to flyin shrapnel. The further you can get away from your target the better! The last thing you want is to injure yourself in a apocalyptical situation and have it slow you down and ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION!!!!
