Lol, I remember doing this back in HS. Some liked to add staples for skin penetration. We lost a lot of good men.

MirroredE (author)Mitemighty2015-05-06

Hey me and my friend got bored in class and found some paper clips (on the teachers desk) and bent each paper clip (large size) into 3 hornets. They hurt like heck!!!! PS Just make sure you don't hit your hand when you launch one. It hurts really bad!!!!!

Tobor 2.0 (author)2010-10-06

PS again we call them wasps or hornets. Do they they really hurt that bad?

Tobor 2.0 (author)2010-10-06

GOD!! Basically everyone in my grade is either the victim of those little devils or a marksmen with those. That's why i am making a high power pen gun. so if somebody shoots one of those at me they'll have another thing coming. PS i am twelve.

V-darts, hornets, wasps, 'flingy thingys'... those are the old names of these things. V-darts remind me of the V-1 and V-2, so would this be called the VP in my school? Seriously, this has never been heard of at my school, as in never. Except for one or two of my colleagues...

bmeaston (author)2010-05-25

I'm  13 too- I call them Hornets, or Flying V's. Just don't get caught by the Principal/ Vice.

BOOM5601 (author)2009-08-24

In Grade 5 we would murder each other with this flying death. We called 'em darts.

bobop21 (author)2009-08-21

im also 13 and we have them at school stashed in our books everywhere to pelt subtitutes when they can't see us shooting tem

Kryptonite (author)2009-07-31

In year six we had 'Paper Wasp' (as we called them) wars. So fun, extremely simple and you made a nice Instructable out of it. To make it even deadlier, make them thinner and insert thumb tacs. Very pointy.

Tape 2 pencils together like a sligshot and tape the elastic at the top then shoot the V-Darts it is much more powerfull and acurate. Also you can put duct tape over the paper darts to make them more areodynamic. My class uses them alot we have exparimented... lol. 13 years old ...ftw

dvnfntn (author)2009-05-19

Everyone in my school calls them V-DARTS!!!!!

EagleScout2007 (author)2009-04-07

Gh{O}sT (author)2008-09-13

finnster (author)2008-07-08

light it on fire then shoot it

danm95 (author)2008-07-05

we call them hornets, some people shoot pen caps and put staples in them but I think if you make a good hornet it huts more.

sector47 (author)2008-05-25

my friends and i call them wasps hornets flingers "dont hit someone in the eye fliers"

Ghetto Gun Maker (author)2008-05-13

I just straighten a staple from one of the staple guns and fold it over It went through a beer can!

jasonrox (author)2008-05-02

A friend of mine got v-darts banned from our jr. high, now you get suspended if your caught with one.

LordLuke VIII (author)2008-03-29

Yeah, I shoot them at kids at school all the time with them, and I'm guessing that it hurts pretty bad from the expression on their faces. P.S. I'm 13 years old too. :)

HardCoreHacker (author)2008-03-28

Thats what everyone I know calls a "HORNET"

Braeburn (author)2007-12-16

at my school we make these with paperclips, then we staple them

emericanskater (author)Braeburn2008-03-20

in elementary we used paperclips so they had a spike on the end and my freind shot me wit it and the spike went in to my arm hardly felt it though

emericanskater (author)2008-03-20

these things hurt like hell i got shot pointblank with one of theses on my back where my sweatshirt was tight and it made me jump out of the chair

mattgallion (author)2008-03-20

i'm 13 years old and at school we call them wasps. that's because when you got hit with a good one it stings like a bee sting.

muffineaterstump (author)2008-01-08

darth acexxacer (author)2007-10-24

at my school i saw someone fling them at the teacher and she got uber pissed

freeballinjoey92 (author)2007-10-14

yeah at my school theyre called hornets. a couple nice touches are to tape the front part with scothch tape. this makes them harder(and more painful) another is pretthy brutal. take a staple and bend it to a flat line. then put it through the point of the v from the inside. have it stick out only like 1mm. then just bend the other part back. its pretty painful. cardinal rule- the smaller it is, the faster it goes...

munkey boy (author)2007-09-17
