a gun made out of a clothes pin that shoots toothpicks

Step 1: taking apart

take the close pin a apart it should look like this
the instructions are missing details.
Why do you need such a big knife? Not that I don't like big knives...
i think ststch means attach since the &quot;A&quot; and &quot;S&quot; keys are next to each and for a fast typer or inaccurate typer this could have happened<br />
Stsch? Thats not a word nor could it be a word because there are no vowels!
what about WTF? and yes it is a word. Just look on Urban Dictionary. :D
hehehe i like Urban Dictionary. good place to go. lol and i agree with daninja, what the crap is Stsch???
also, work on your english (its good.. but needs work :P)
&nbsp;good instructable! but i would work on making the ammo hold a bit deeper it might make it go further (i think)
I used to make these all the time!!
whats the range?
it dipends all are different it also depends on the tooth picks you use if the round one break of the end i got like 10 feet straight at max speed intill it droped
OW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I freakin just sliced my thumb OW!
ouch thats gota hurt be careful
it looks easy how gansta am i ps 5+70= 1209<br/>
One of my teachers (and closest friends) taught me how to make one of these. As it turns out, students of the 50s, like him, used these to fire matches and toothpicks (I use toothpicks) and it's a lot of fun lawl
nice i learned it from my cousins dad in childrens church when i was 6! but thats awsome
i was expecting more, i was expecting quite a bit more.
it has bad accuricy
Dude I have no clue on how fire the dang thing. You video was to dark so I couldn't see what you were doing!!!
ok ill tell you when you are done you take the other side of the closepin than push the metal part with no curl back to the little ditch i ingraved in the ditch so it wouldn't come out then you pull the bottum like a gun trigger i hope this helps if not mabe i could make another video
this is cool, but the idea has been done before in different shapes n sizes using that firing mechanism. nice tho
yeah I know its been done but I did it like along time ago my cousin should me win I was like 8
lol will you ever cease to amaze me? Now try making something out of knex that you can post here. I know your capable of making a gun as good as my latest uzi.
