very nice

loy266 (author)2008-11-23

I used a pvc one and wrapped the sharp end with duct tape and it went in to my nabors yard!

LaserTaser64 (author)2008-10-15

u should put a handle on the dowel so it would be like a crossbow

kser (author)2008-09-14

I made a bow and arrow before but this is way cooler that that so awesome

flapjack the mouse (author)2007-03-31

if i used a peice of pvc pipe would that work???

pvc is generally stronger than wood. go to a building store and see if it isnt... The problem miggght be finding pvc that small. 2 inches is easy to find tho.

I see no reason why it wouldn't.

RelyNupon (author)2008-09-10

use a thicker wooden dowel and use a pencil instead and it is the ultimate school pencil shooter!
I shot a pencil through the ceiling at school!!!!

killerkorn (author)2008-08-05

Gangster! I luv it.

Opalinus (author)2007-02-04

i made it and ... its damn strong. But i don't know to what should I shot?
Its very dangerous!! Tanks for the idea!

kgtateddy (author)Opalinus2008-04-24

i shoot to a Shoes Box so it has space to go trough. And i reinforce it with a thin magazine or ducktape when it looks like cheese. I made mine with 2 rubber bands and a plastic pipe form a fax machine.. the one that holds the thermal paper. And i shoot Chopsticks instead. Goes trough the duct tape like butter

I made something like this but out of a blowgun pipe an dturned it into a gun and it misfired and the dart went though my the 2nd joint of my thumb and through the bone now i habe 78% metal bone atleast that is what my doc said so dont try it

hp_bierbaumer (author)2007-11-29

any type of pipe should work

hp_bierbaumer (author)2007-11-29

simple and powerful... love it!

sak-j (author)2007-06-12

why is there a hole in the pipe?

pakman227 (author)sak-j2007-11-19

omg!so it can shoot its a barrel.

Ribs (author)sak-j2007-11-03

so that the stick can go through it... isn't that kinda obvious

Legend (author)2007-05-06

F***ing awsome! To make it with bamboo would be easier though. I'm making this as soon as I get home from school (hmmm.... shhh). Yesterday I made a Hawaiian Sling to go spearfishing with. Its very long and hard to pull though, perhaps I could make this to do the job. Thanks!

Digital_Anarchy (author)Legend2007-08-18

maybe an ınstructable?? ı have a pretty good ıdea of how to go about makıng a pole spear. ı may post an ınstructable when ım done. unfortunatly the dont have many reefs ın england. the closest coast ı have ıs the severn estuary

Legend (author)Digital_Anarchy2007-08-21

Hahaha, well if you can get within 1 cm of the fish to be able to SEE it you might be able to score a fish. As for my hawaiian sling, its was great out of water, but in water it had an effective range of about 60cm... I couldn't get a good shot at any fish unless they were about a meter away. It was obviously the wrong kind of tubing. Too hard to pull and not enough elasticity. I think i've given up on the idea. I could make a bowfishing rig.... - !! Idea! I read a book by Howard Hill (ooold book) and he made a bowfishing rig to actually go underwater and shoot the fish. Ok that's what I'm gonna do with my next bow.

Digital_Anarchy (author)Legend2007-09-02

what tubing did you use? try buying pole spear elastic from a dive shop.

Americanballer (author)2007-07-26

I made this out of paper (a notecard). It sucks , but it is still pretty powerful. Ya I play paintball!

MegaXdizzle (author)2007-07-29

sak-j (author)2007-07-11

da man (author)2007-05-06

this is so C O O L!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i made one out of a piece of pvc pipe. but the best thing about this is that if you u attatch 3 tail fins to the back(small enough to fit through the pipe)it will shoot really far with great accuracy A W E S O M E

da man (author)da man2007-05-06

soz i forgot to say this, make the tail fins from pvc tape. i may make a modifications instructable, we will c about that?????????????????hmmmmmmmm

da man (author)da man2007-05-06
