Q-Tip Shooter

Introduction: Q-Tip Shooter

I decided to make this to punish kids who were shooting spitballs in class. This is perfect for hitting people without using saliva. It hurts a little but is revenge for shooting spitballs!

Step 1: Materials

Gather your materials. You will need:
-A pen (I used Bic Comfort Stic)
-A rubberband
-Scotch tape
-Q-Tips
-A kinfe/scissors

Step 2: Disassembly

Take the pen apart and use your sharp object to pop the back part off.

Step 3: Attaching the Rubberband

Cut the rubberband down to size. Now take one piece and attach it to one side of the pen tube. Use tape to go over the parts attached to the pen. (This is hard to explain so just use the pictures as a guide.) You might want to cut notches on the end of the pen tube to better hold down the elastic band.

Step 4: Loading the Shooter

To load the Q-Tip, put it in on the other side and use something to ram it down. (I use the ink cartridge from the pen.) Then when the rubberband begins to stretch, take the Q-Tip on the other side and pull it out. The frther you pull the faster and harder the Q-Tip will shoot but the chances of the rubberband breaking increase. (Obviously, let go to fire.)

    Off topic if you take the tip off an aluminum arrow and drop a ball berring or a pellet down the shaft of the arrow and then drop a 22 shell down the shaft lead facing the tip put the tip back on when you shoot the arrow bangexploding tip arrows how can i make a qtip do that?

    We used to put a pin in the Qtip... dont try that at home....

    paper clip gun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice, I built one myself. However, I added super glue in order to make the rubber band stay, since the rubber band wasn't staying. I've had it for a few weeks, and it shoots about 15 feet.

    My rubber band kept breaking.I lost my rammer so I blew on it and from that day on (which hassn't ven been an hour)I had a blower disgised as your origanal idea.P.S.I'm only 8 and I am a genius.
