Introduction: Toothpick Shooter

In this Instructable I will show you how to make a toothpick shooter...
yes, I did not invent this... but, I modified it so it is simpler for you out there to make it










I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO WITH THE SHOOTER

Step 1: Things You Need:

1) Razor knife
2) Tape (any kind)
3) Clothespin

Step 2: Preparations

Start off by splitting the clothespin and marking it as shown

Then cut out your marks with the Razor knife, but only one should have the jack

Step 3: More Preparations

now create a corner right about where im showing in the pic

Step 4: Creating the Barrel

now create the barrel... i guess that you understand what you should do from the pics

Step 5: Get It Together!

now tape it all together!!

Step 6: Adding the Spring

now just slide the spring on and youre almost set

Step 7: Fire!

Cut one end from a toothpick - Tada! Ammo!


Pusth the flat end into the barrel, until the spring snaps into the notch.


Happy Shooting!
