Step 1: Gather Materials

All you need is :

- PVA glue

- 2 Popsicle sticks

- A few rubber bands

- A pencil

And your hands

Step 2: Mark the Edge

Overlap the two sticks as shown in image one, then check if it shoots holing it together. If it does keep them together and mark the edge of the second stick with the pencil.

Step 3: Gluing

Apply a generous amount of glue to the first stick and then put it on the second stick (with mark) and apply pressure. If any glue oozes out just wipe it of.

Step 4: Drying

Put the sticks in a vice/clamp or like me wrap rubber bands tightly around them. Then wait for your glue to dry, mine took 10 mins but others might need to be left over night.

Step 5: Shoot Away

Take of the clamps/bands and start firing. (you might want to sand it down a bit)

If you want make a few and duel of with your friends.
