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

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

think about how you will fire it without the band

Is this safe for your bb gun?
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).
lol yeah

add some paper fins in the back of the skewer, maybe it'll fly better.
flips302406 years ago
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!!!!!!!!!!

add a laser pen for more accuracy
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.

Not to mention way too flimsy.
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
Hmmm... ya, that would work. And then you could use the bow to shoot proper arrows...
paper arrows?
