Introduction: Skewer Gun

Quick and easy skewer shooter. Shoots a skewer 75ft accuratlly!

Dont criticise me to harshly 'cause i am only 12 and this is my first instructable

Step 1: MATERIALS

-Skewers(obviously)
-rubber band
-scissors
-tape
-Toy animal grabber thing

Step 2: Preperation of the Barrel

cut the string connecting the trigger to the head of the animal toy. discard the head and trigger(i am keeping the trigger for a later project)

Step 3: ATTACH THE RUBBER BAND

Wrap the rubber band around the barrel 1-5 times depending on the size of the rubberband.

Step 4: SECURING THE RUBBER BAND

wrap the rubber band to the barrel with tape.

Step 5: YOU ARE DONE!

DO NOT FIRE AT PEOPLE(INCLUDING BROTHERS/SISTERS), OR ANIMALS!!!

Here are some pics of it

Why do you have to put the rubber band on???

author
sharlston made it! (author)sharlston2009-04-12

author
nsaltz94 made it! (author)nsaltz942007-06-02

to shoot the skewer you rest the rubberband on the skewer and pull back

no if you want to shoot skewers from your bb gun load it and put a skewer in the end

ya know.... joining an archery club would probably be much more fun..... and most will let anyone over 10 join. the cost of the equipment can be a little steep (around a total of £300) , but you may be able to get your parents to atleast partly pay for it since it could be thought of as "extra curricula"

you dont seem to understand - the point of all of this is DIY. that stands for Do It Yourself. of course theres a better solution, but this is just another awesome DIY project for having fun with. plus, not everyone wants to pay 300 bucks when they could just make one of these and have a ton of fun.

you could also attach 2 black metal binder clips one on top of the other so they grip the tube tightly and then string the rubberband on 2 of the legs of the top binder clip. the rubberband is gonna be tough to draw, though.I made a plunger and then bent a paperclip to hold the rubberband to the hollow tube(plunger).

add some paper fins in the back of the skewer, maybe it'll fly better.

flips30240 made it! (author)2008-02-15

I made sumthin just like it except i used a stronger rubberband and used a handle from one of those old fashioned wire cheese cutters. i shot mine into the wall and i had to break the skewer cause it wouldnt come off!! Great instreuctable!!!!!!!!!!

Using a toilet rool tube with a ballon worx and cut the top off a bottle and put a ballon on it fires anything that fits in it.\

Why don't you just use a straw? Or a mechanical pencil? It's just, the animal grabber things are like five bucks here. So I wouldn't want to wreck one.

you could use those toy arrows frm those toy bows that u can get from the 99c store just cut the front off and yank the back off and there ya go

author
threecheersfornick made it! (author)threecheersfornick2007-08-04

Hmmm... ya, that would work. And then you could use the bow to shoot proper arrows...

THIS IS SWEET, i rly needed this. A simple mod is to attach the skewer to the rubber band and then ad something to the other end, making a plunger of sorts, then you can shoot anything, including skewers, BBs or nething that'll fit in the tube.

Oww!! If you mod. the skewer and add a metal pin to the flat side of it..it can hurt. It shot through my drywall and out the other side. Nice job overall. ~DEZIRE @(>_<)@
