Introduction: Mini Pen Gun

Picture of Mini Pen Gun

This Instructable is awesome (its my first Instructable) I was wanting to make a pen shooter so here it is, it is sort of dangerous. If you shoot it right the pen will go flying across the room

Step 1: Things You Need

Picture of Things You Need

you need
x2 rubber bands
a pen

Step 2: Taking the Pen Apart

Picture of Taking the Pen Apart

all you need to do is take the pen apart so you get the ink inside but keep the rest of the pen

Step 3: Puting It Together-1

Picture of Puting It Together-1

attach the rubber band to the pen (YOU HAVE TO DO IT LIKE IN THE PICTURE)by wrapping the rubber band around both ends of the rubber band ( wrap it around HARD so that the rubber band does not come off when you pull it back)it should be a some what tight pull. The picture in the corner is to show how it should look( I just got a bad picture of it

Step 4: Putting It Together-2

get the paper and cut a strip off about an inch long and roll it up and tape it so it stays rolled up and stick both of the rubber band sides past the rolled up paper.

Step 5: Putting It Together Still

now fold the other 3/4ths in a long rectangle and fold it in half over the pen like in the picture and tape both sides together.

Step 6: Done Finally

now stick the ink threw the scope looking thing and get the pen balanced on both strands and if you shoot it right it will fly

is it ok if you use silly bands?

InstantAsianNoodles (author)2011-01-19

Err, the paper looks kinda of like a bag of weed. Other than that irrelevant comment, I tried making it and it's not half bad for your first one. I've seen quite a few pen guns here and there and this one is alright compared to them. Great work!

yah it does look like weed

I don't get the idea of the gun. Other pen guns are much more simpler and cooler looking, no offense.

Ikerules (author)2009-07-26

It's a cool gun but I don't get it

sam_the_man999 (author)2009-03-08

I do not get it is there 2 or 3 rubber bands have to use??????

The more rubber bands the higher the power! :D

7777777777 (author)2009-06-04

I don't get it?

jimbeam20 (author)2009-04-27

What happened to shooting just plain rubber bands? I want to go back to the 60's man!

redbob24 (author)2008-02-22

codongolev (author)ruiqim2008-12-01

dombeef (author)codongolev2008-12-13


codongolev (author)redbob242008-07-22

codongolev (author)tubbychick3n2008-10-02

foxtrot4697 (author)codongolev2008-11-25

codongolev (author)foxtrot46972008-11-26

codongolev (author)foxtrot46972008-11-27

can you have a dance war? "transmission radio, radio, respond if you're alive, give me a sign of life...." "1 2 3 4 I declare a dance war..." dance or die by family force 5.

tubbychick3n (author)codongolev2008-10-02

naruto4567 (author)2009-02-14

Be careful with these things in the classroom. Last year a guy in my class was trying to get a pencil stuck in the ceiling tile with one and he hit a sprinkler... Flooded 1/4 of the school, ruined a shitload of books, 4 computers, peoples clothing (there was black stuff in the sprinkler system)... Got school cancelled for a day, and he got suspended for about a week. I mean its great if you don't get caught.. but...

foxtrot4697 (author)ray888j2008-11-25

rocketsforfun (author)2008-04-01

I modified this to shoot straight down the middle of a hollowed out pen tube and it burrows about 2-3 inches into an apple

revised, over 6 inches

codongolev (author)rocketsforfun2008-07-24

I didn't know they had apples that were 6 in. wide.

rocketsforfun (author)codongolev2008-07-24

CM, my mistake thank you codongolev

codongolev (author)rocketsforfun2008-07-24

You might want to spell check this Instructable, but other than that great idea, I can't wait to try this.

step 3:puting it together-1
attach the rubber band to the pen (YOU HAVE TO DO IT LIKE IN THE PICTURE)by raping the rubber band

geeklord (author)The Pirate2008-02-01

how do you rape a rubber band???

TheShawMaestro (author)geeklord2008-06-17

What I find funny is that 3 people made the same joke. I think a few people need to grow up.

ruiqim (author)The Pirate2008-06-16

Don't rape a rubber band! It's not nice! You might hurt its feelings! Plus, you can get arrested for raping a rubber band!

Snifer Enterprises (author)2008-02-23
