Introduction: Pencil Crossbow. DANGEROUS!

In this instructable i will show you how to make a dangerous crossbow out of:
3 pencils(unsharpened)
One Rubberband(general size, thick)
Masking Tape
Hot Glue
Ink Part of a Pen

Step 1: Glue

Take hot glue, and glue the two pencils together. glue on one side, and leave no gap between pencils!

Step 2: Glue...again

Take the third pencil, and lay it near the unsharpened part of the pencils, centered, on the glue side!

Step 3: Rubberband

Take some scissors, and cut a little groove in the eraser. Then, take a rubberband and put it in the groove. Hot glue in place.

Step 4: Other Side...

take the part of the rubberband that isnt glued, and s t r e t c h it out to the other side. glue in place

Step 5: Take the Duct Tape

just a small bit of it, and put it in the middle of the rubberband, on the side where there isnt any glue. the tape should be able to fold over the rubberband top and bottom.

Step 6: Insert the Inside of the Pen...

and fire!!!

NOTE: THIS DEVICE CAN BE DANGEROUS! DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, SHOOT AT SOME RANDOM GUY, EVEN IF YOU HATE HIM. ANY CLAIMS OF INJURY WILL NOT BE TAKEN INTO MY OWN HANDS.

USE AT OWN RISK!!!

can i use tape instead?

actually this isnt a crossbow,its more of a crossbow shaped slingshot...

 Nope, it's just a bow mounted on a stock. 

Well, they're not Y-shaped either. So it's not a crossbow, not a bow, and not a slingshot. So what is it?

p.s. (lol)
sling shots dont have to be y shaped.

*causes facepalm*
Whatever you say I will use against you, lol. 

o and i just looked at the images on ur reply.i read the 2nd(bottom) 1 and saw that it says :"slingshot:a y-shaped stick OR PIECE OF METAL* with a piece of elastic fixed to tha top parts,..."
*...meaning that it can be either a y-shaped stick OR a different form of body(in this case a piece of metal)

 Okay, I'm gonna get my hard copy dictionary. *gets webster's dictionary* VICTORY!!! *gets camera and takes pics* you can't argue with webster. Like you said, "online resources tend to have public access where people edit the meanings" so your above reply is wrong.
