i've tried to get the back part out but all i've managed to do is bust up about 5 pens. how do you get the back out?

take a small screw driver and stick it in the tube and push the black end out. tap it lighty and start increasing the tapping power it should come out.dont pry it off.

yes there is... you can use the end of the pen (the little black part) to load into one end of the pen and the other end needs to be tissue or paper or w/e just make sure that the end of the pen thing isnt in all the way only about half way (if its in all the way it wont work but if its in half way) and it should give a sharp crack and fire it hurts really bad like an airsoft gun

sry for double posting but i thought of something else.. if you really want to hurt someone take a sewing needle and cut it about the size of two small erasers and then shove it through an eraser (the ones you get out of pencils) and it should look something like a thumb tack and that should hurt a bit.

i wish you could fire something with a point in a pen shooter

author
dodo91 (author)haydes2011-06-03

You can. Make a blow dart with a shoelace end, undo the shoelace into the small fibers, and push a pin throught the lace and through the aglet (plastic tip). put in the dart with a spitball behind it, and load it... then put the other spitball in and fire! Hope you understand.... I had a hard time figuring out how to word it.

My parents did this as kids, instead of a pen tube, they used bamboo, for all the parts. I made one now, using your pen idea, and instead of tape, I used the matching pen cap, so its pretty convenient to shoot around and hide.

This looks cool...i wish i hadn't used up all the pens like this in my house for the really simple pen gun...

author
geeklord (author)2008-02-01

i made somethin like this, but i taped a rubber band to the end of the stick and to the front of the pen tube, so you could pull it back and shoot anything that fit in the pen tube.

author
imthatguy1125 (author)2008-10-29

I have done this and could make it shoot a least 25 feet

author

Hahaha.Mine shoots further than yours.I use the chopstick wrapped in tape instead of 2 balls.

author

i tryed this but i had to keep replacing the tape so i gave up try usein twoo micro 0 rings

author

Yeah I have to keep replacing the tape to.

author
bylerfamily (author)2009-02-09

This is awesome!Its favorited and rated.I made it except I got tired of loading 2 bullets.So I wrapped masking tape around the front of the chopstick until it was airtight in the pen.That worked just as well and was faster to load.Again,GREAT INSTRUCTABLE!

It depends on your pen but for maximum distance it must be super tight
