Introduction: Stun Darts

Stun darts are easy to make. They are made to be used with a PVC blowgun, but can be used in an air-gun. They only require paper, scissors, tape, a blowgun (if you want to shoot it), and a paper clip or other wire (clothes-hanger wire works well.) 

Step 1: Making the Dart

Take some paper and cut it into a small rectangle. Roll that up into a cone and tape it down, so it remains rolled up. Take the paper clip and fold one side over a couple times. Then, cut the paper cone's tip off. Be careful not to cut too much off, just cut off enough to slide the straightened paper clip through until the folded part gets caught.

Step 2: Apply Tape

Tape the protruding paper clip to the end of the cone. Put on a couple layers to be sure. Then fold over the paper clip back towards the cone. 

Step 3: Cutting the Cone

Now you need to insert the cone as far as it will go into the PVC blowgun. Mark where it protrudes, and cut that part off.  You can now shoot the blow dart at your friends, as it will hurt but is not truly dangerous. If you do get hurt (as I'm sure somebody will manage it) I am not to be held responsible. Now go have fun.

Nice! I like how you maintain the streamlined dart shape, but with a not-penetrating tip that still has a lot of punch.

thanks. it is safer than my previously used stun darts. They were a paper cone with a nail sticking in them backward, so the head of the nail was was the impact point. Thats what my friend got shot in the face with.

I made something like this by making a paper cone, then dropping a lead sinker in the tip and gluing it is place. Those are deadly strong, I killed a few birds with them.

i shot a rabbit with a nail dart (pointy side out) and my neighbor found "it" dead the next day. A week later, the rabbit was seen again, with the dart in its neck.

PLEASE be careful. These can hurt people, and with minor modification, can stick in walls (and people.) Do not shoot at anybody EVER. (that includes you, Higgs)

I was not too fond of that dart. did you leave something saying not to shoot these at people or animals (or fragile items)?

freeza36 (author)Higgs Boson2011-11-11

I did say somebody WILL manage to get hurt, but its not my problem and i am not responsible.

Except that what you meant to say is that you managed to hurt someone and wasn't your problem until they got mad.
