Introduction: Toothpick Shooter

This is a simple toothpick shooter you can make. You probably have everything you need in your house. If you do it right, it can shoot about 20 meters.

Step 1: Gather Materials

As I said, most of the materials and tools you probably already have. I found that a hand pump is better than a foot pump, but I couldn't find the hand hand pump that I used to use.

1. pump
2. index card
3. toothpick

1. scissors

Step 2: Prepare Index Card

 Use the scissors to cut the index card in half vertically.

Step 3: Break Toothpick

The title is pretty self explanatory, but in case you didn't figure it out, you should BREAK THE TOOTHPICK IN HALF!

Step 4: Roll Index Card

Roll the index card around the paper clip, be sure to do it tight.

Step 5: Put Index Card Into Pump

 Stuff the index card into the pump, make sure it is tight. You can adjust with scissors and extra card.

Step 6: Load & Shoot

you can also use some spray paint or mini gas tank or stuff like that. be careful if you use gas though, use it in a well ventilated space and try not to set anything on fire.
