    This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image for the project, even if it's just a video that you're trying to publish.

    Please do that, and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work.

    look at my instructables, i just like to make weapons, it's fun

    umm i live in australia and ive never heard of snapple caps what are they?? lol

    Please add pictures! i dont understand your image! if you do i can make one and introduce them to my wasp toteing frends and it will surely become very popular! i will give yall credit for it!

    you're like me i like instructables and rotteneggs too o and cool idea

    This is so cool!

    yah i tried making one out of knex it isint worth it you need a rubber band and some paper thats all

    its interesting but it seems large and unnescessary for hornets, whose main purpose is a quick and painful shot, i give you a b- for creativity, but you lost points for bulkiness, make it smaller, please.
