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???

    3 replies

    der so u pull the band back with the skewer

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

    think about how you will fire it without the band

    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).

    NICE!!! I made one (With a small rubber band and a mechanical pencil) in school (don't worry, got permission. My teachers are nice.) I made a more powerful one at home. very accurate. +1!
