Arrow Blowgun

Introduction: Arrow Blowgun

About: I am a teenager who is studying Principles of Engineering at DTSMA high school and a future engineer.

This is a simple, less than 30 minute project I put together after one of the heads of my (very inexpensive) arrows fell off after constant stress on the head. I used a new arrow for the sake of demonstration.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Get the Stuff

All you need is a target-style, hollow arrow and maybe a pair of pliers.

For the darts, you need Q-Tips and a pair of scissors

Step 2: Assemble the Stuff

I like to shoot the arrow first at a cinderblock or a brick to loosen up the head a little bit, and pull it out with a pair of pliers. Then, pull the knock out (not shown), and save both the head and the knock (for further use). Congratulations! You have successfully assembled an arrow blowgun!

Step 3: More Stuff

The darts are as simple as the blowgun. All you need to do is cut the head off of one of the ends of the Q-Tip and you have a safety dart that fits perfectly into the barrel of the blowgun!

Step 4: Use the Stuff

You can also use airsoft bullets for this.

Congratulations! You have successfully added a new weapon to your arsenal!
