Introduction:

One day I wanted to have an adventure, and when you're on an adventure, you need to protect yourself. I didn't want to use one of the weapons I had made, because I wanted something that shoots.
So I made this.CAUTION: THIS WILL HURT IF YOU SHOOT A PERSON

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

You will need:
  one thick, 31 in. wrapping paper tube (cut it if you need to)
  11 regular craft sticks
  Four thin, craft sticks
  two BIG rubber bands
  two small binder clips
  scissors
  low-temp mini glue gun


Step 2: Crosspiece

Decide which end of the tube will be the front. Poke a hole about an inch down from that end using the tip of your scissors, make sure you poke it all the way through. Then take the scissors out, so the tip is in the first hole, ( I know, it's confusing. Look at the pictures for help.) then spread the scissors out. Do this to the other side. DO NOT make the slits any longer than 3/4 of an inch. Now put a craft stick in the slits ( if you read to the last sentence, the craft stick should fit without glue).

Step 3: Rubber Band Slots and Triggers

Cut notches as shown, in the shape of the letter "V". This part is for accuracy, so try to make all the slots the same size. For the triggers, place two binder clips on the other end of the tube.

Step 4: Details

Use the glue gun here. Look at the picture.
