Step 1: Gather materials

This is a prretty simple build,you only need 3 things

a vice grip or pliers (vice not shown),
a strike on box wood match,
and a needle

Step 3: Final assembly

Put the needle in the vice blunt side up.
Then push the striking side of the match onto it.
sorry about the fuzziness of the pic and that the vice is kinda out of the shot.Afterwards it should look like the second picture.

Step 4: Fire

Use a straw to fire it,I'm sure you can figure that out
here are some targets to prove it.
You can also use the alternate version of my dart gun without the pill bottle.
I am not responsible for where you aim this.If someone gets hurt
it's not my fault
I shot it at a leather pillow (about the same as skin)
remember that these are for targets

if u soaked it in meths then lit it an shot it it wouldnt go out as it flew through the air, im not sure if you could load it and fire before it sets the blowgun on fire though...

It varies a bit from dart to dart, but 10-17 ft. is about the average. It's a pretty stable platform, so the harder you blow, the better.

he sounds familiar because he's the guy who likes to make fun of other peoples instructables. it must be his sick, twisted entertainment to know that he's negatively influencing someone out of reach, someone who can't strike back in any physical sense. personally austin, i think you should lay off other peoples ideas and start having more of your own.
yea what are you talking about i rarely flame people and i have made and instuctable before
Hey, he only said that he doubted it would kill anyone, he didn't say that the instructable sucked. I doubt they'd kill, but I wouldn't volunteer to stand in front of one. And Lithoboli, you haven't even got one Instructable up!

And tom3uk, you haven't even got one Instructable up!
nice job but i make a paper dart and put a pin in it
paper warrior (author)  yellow elephant7 years ago
I've done that before, it gets less momuntem and is less destructive.
i just roll a paper dart and insert a needle in the front. also can put in either a straightened staple or a toothpick

i sort of doubt this is "enough to kill" unless it was poison tipped and you shot it directy into someone's brain while they were already at like 4hp. But it would probably hurt.
paper warrior (author)  Robotrix7 years ago
I think you should lay off the video games for a while. Humans don't have health points.
paper warrior (author)  Robotrix7 years ago
poison is a good idea i was talking about hitting veins and the sort

1ml hypodermics are good for this type of thing, check your local park...

I'm a bit confused, why are these so powerful? Does the match ignite, or is that just so it goes in the strw?
paper warrior (author)  SCrid20007 years ago
when you have a small straw the preesure is higher and they go pretty fast and carry that energy from thwe shot into the target.One time one of them went 1/4 inch into the 2x4 in the wall from 15 ft plus if you roll sand paper into a tube and use that it'll probably ignite but you have to put a lot of pressure in there. I'll try to get a vid of it next time
im sure you could flip the match and needle and tinfoild or something and make it actually launch.
paper warrior (author)  AgentDanny7 years ago
Like a matchstick rocket?
exactly. but with a speer point. maybey put some barbs on the end of it to make it particularly nasty
paper warrior (author)  AgentDanny7 years ago
Or exploding paint. (insert evil grin)
super glue a .6 mm air soft paint ball to it.

And i don't think you went overboard at all.
paper warrior (author) 7 years ago
I'm not really a fan of austin.
paper warrior (author) 7 years ago
i'm talking about tomc3uk
Lithoboli7 years ago
and yes, i'll admit i went a little overboard with the whole "sick and twisted" spiel.
Lithoboli7 years ago
i do lots of uneccessary things. like even bothering to stand up for other people...
austin7 years ago
yea the whole killing thing is pretty doubtful it reminds me of when i was a kid and we used to be like woah thats enough to kill a person if you hit them right in the vein or temple.oooo
paper warrior (author)  austin7 years ago
i dont know why but u sound familiar
paper warrior (author) 7 years ago
Please be careful and only use these on targets.
paper warrior (author)  paper warrior7 years ago
Squirrels aren't targets.
Oh... too late... :)

You could push the needle in and THEN cut the top off, it would make it easyer and come out the same.
paper warrior (author)  PetervG7 years ago
the sharp end does more damage though
