It will shoot through cardboard and pretty far.
so lets get started
Please note: this is my first ACTUAL instructable, so please bear with me if anything is not good, and feel free to ask questions in the comments.
Step 1: Materials
- a Bic pen
- Clear tape
- An elastic band
Step 2: Prepping the Pen
- Start by removing the cap (Duh..)
- Then use your teeth to remove the top part holding in the ink.
- Finally use you teeth to remove the end cap at the bottom
- Discard the cap (or keep it), all you will need is the ink, and the tube
alternatively you can use pliers.
Step 3: Prepping the Elastic
Step 4: Putting It Together
- First Take the tube and tape the elastic to it. (Picture 1) (Make it strong)
- Then Pull the loop over one of the open ends of the elastic (Picture 2)
- Now you are ready to fire!
TIP: The more tension on the elastic, the stronger it will be.
Step 5: FIRING!
- Insert the ink tube into the tube against the elastic on the other end (Picture 1)
- Use the elastic to grab the ink tube, Pull back and let go!!
