Sometimes I see instructables with bullets that are in the shape of fingerprints. How do I do this?

A US woman had a lucky escape when a burglar's bullet bounced off the metal underwire in her bra.Police in the city of Detroit said one of three intruders fired a shot when the woman looked out of her window and saw them raiding the house next door.The bullet smashed the window and hit her, but instead of causing serious injury - or worse - it was deflected off the wiring in her bra.The unnamed 57-year-old woman was taken to hospital and released the same day."It did slow the bullet down," said a police spokesman. "She sustained injuries but they're not life-threatening."Teenage gangThe woman, who lives on the west side of Detroit, had seen the youths breaking into the house next door while her neighbour was away.Police believe one of the gang saw her looking out of the window and fired at her.The suspects then drove away after the shooting.Local police Sgt Eren Stephens Bell told the Detroit News: "We need to get some bulletproof vests made from that. It is some strong wire." BBC Story

This is a place to post your various bullet types. I have included a short tutorial for what I call "Buck Shot" because it sort of has a spread of blue pieces. The other bullet is also in Gamer5's "Powerful Guns" forum topic. The other bullet isn't very special except that it has a hard impact, but it has a short range."Buck Shot"* Materials: Any Knex gun in which the ram comes almost (within 1cm) of the end. Seven (7) blue spacers (there are six (6) in the picture, though you need Seven (7)) One of those launchers that you can get in some sets and that you flick to shoot a Missile about ten feetPicture 1: MaterialsPicture 2: Cock the gun and put the launcher in the barrelPicture 3: Put the spacers in the launcher in the barrelPicture 4: A self-explanitory picture of the other bullet I mentionedPlease post any of your bullet designs and what they are good for.*I have posted this here instead of in a seperate instructable because it is too short to have it's own instructable.

When I am creating an 'able, I enjoy numbering things. I don't know why, it could be my attempt at organization or bringing me back to my Sesame Street days of the Count? Dunno.... I click the icon for numbering, and start numbering things. I click and it doesn't turn it off. I turn it off and hit return, it is still on. I remember having this issue last 'able I made but there were two options to create an 'able, and I must have went with the other way... Now there is only one option to create one... Chrome Browser Version 38.0.2125.104 on Mac OS X Ver 10.9.5 Will attempt to recreate on a Win7 machine running the same Chrome browser (it's all I use)

I like to use bulleted list's when creating documents, but am having inconsistent results using the HTML tags within the Instructables editor. Initially when editing an intro page if I enter the tags the formatting doesn't appear in the preview, however if I view the full page and then return to the editor the bulleted list is displayed. This doesn't seem to work though for subsequent steps. I have viewed other contributors ibles where bulleted and numbered list formatting was sucsessfully implemented, what am I doing wrong? (yes I'm using closing tags)

I am trying to design a bullet lock for my new gun, but I am having trouble The original 3 prototypes miserably failed and I need help. I don't want to lose range or power by adding one...

My 1975 model 350cc STD Bullet is literally struggling to cross above 60KM speed. 13000 KMs done after restoration and never allowed me to cross above 70KM speed.Using MIKARB and suspecting that one. But I would like to know whether there are any other reason could cause this problem. Machanic saying noyhing to worry about the engine related components. So please guide me with all possible causes to start a complete investigation.

The Milkshake leaked out of the bottom of the container and went through the power base before I noticed it leaking out of the bottom of the power base. Is there any way to clean the inside of the power base? Or can I just keep using it with out worry of it exploding or something?

Question | last reply
How does the explosive in the round move the bullet? Is it just a quick bang and the shockwave gives the bullet a quick "kick", letting its momentum carry it down the barrel? or do the expanding gases continue to push it down the barrel? If it is the latter, doesn't there need to be a (reasonably) airtight seal between the chamber and barrel to stop the gases just escaping out the sides?
Question by .Unknown. | last reply
Bolt action is going to be too specific to describe the action of loading a bullet in such a way as to increase power so I'm just going to call it chambering. Bolt action chambering was done through the use of two separate pins and "barrels". The magazine loaded ammo into a separate area and then was pushed into the barrel by the bolt pin. This works pretty well but it's a little complicated and some potential accelerating space is wasted with the bolt. I wanted to simplify the action of chambering a round for max power. Why not just have one barrel? I made a powerpoint to demonstrate the concept. There are still a few problems I need to figure out before I can work on such a gun such as how the trigger would work and how to keep the ammo in the magazine down. I have ideas for both but nothing that I'm 100% sure of. If anyone would like to try this concept out, PM me. You can download the powerpoint here. (make sure you play through it, don't just scroll through the slides)

I know this question might sound dumb but i'm going to ask it. I am wondering if I can use stefans (modified nerf bullets) with the Nerf Vulcan. Right now I do not have the Nerf Vulcan or Stefans to test them, that's why i'm asking this. Thanks in advance!

I been experimenting with projectiles, and been wondering what can I use to simulate a human skull. I've been shooting at a 1\2 inch thick peice of wood board, the projectile made it all the way through easily. When aimed at someones head, do you think this could peirce the skull and damage the brain, or do you think the bullet will just get stuck? How strong is the human skull anyway?

Question by sharlston | last reply
I looked at backer rods and they have aren't hollow. The regular stock nerf bullets are. The stock nerf guns have a little stick pointing out so you can put the bullet onto it, but since Stefan bullets aren't hollow they can't go onto the stick. So my question is "Can I put Stefan bullets unto un-modifed nerf guns?"
Question by Pizzapie500 | last reply
When the firing pin hits the bullet in a K'nex gun, why is there some energy lost? If all the energy from the firing pin was to transfer to the bullet, then the pin would stop before it hit the back of the gun. Is there some way to use all of the firing pin's energy to completely transfer to the bullet?

Hi.I just started a group to share instructables involving the use of a Magic Bullet Mixer. I love this gadget and I would like to use this group to collect and share recipes with everyone. When I have some time, I'll post some instructables describing how to make crepes, watermelon daiquiris and even hot chocolate. But in the mean time I was hoping some people would add their own recipes to get the ball rolling.Here's the URL to the group page: https://www.instructables.com/group/mbm/Thanks.

I have a partially completed sniper at home and i wanted to know if you guys want me to finish and post it, i mean, theres no point posting if it gets a cr*p reception, eh? And it is currently unnamed so i am open to suggestions about that aswell. At the moment it has a cool carrying strap (not mine), a bolt loading system (classic) a bipod, a monopod, and a nifty scope (not mine) I am also working on a new mech for possible semi auto, ill get back to you if it gets anywhere.

I have seen a fare share of knex guns and more specifically "rifles". The bullets are not spun at all or spun with fins. But there is no gun that spins the bullet in the barrel. Does that mean there is no such thing as a knex rifle?
