Step 1: Placing the Despensers

make a big row of despensers about 10-15 long(don't curve it like I did)

Step 2: Load 'em Up

You need a lot of arrows and then put them in the despensers

Step 3: Making the Mechanics

Put 2 powered rails then 1 detector rail for the length of the defence system, next, put 1 powered rail at each end with a block behond it
    (this makes the cart go back and forth).

Then, put redstone wire down to the despensers (each powers 3)

Put a redstone torch down for each 2 powered rails.


Step 4: Start It Up

At one end of the rails, next to the block, put a lever instead of a torch by the last powered rail (this is your on/off switch)

Put a minecart down and push it to get it going.

Now it works.

Step 5: Other Ideas

Another thing you can do is place it in a giant square and put castle walls on top of it.
Then, make a circular track with the same functions.

Smaller model shown below.

    Well, yea, I thought you ment infinant. Cause a redstone torch won't work.

    What about the machine gun tactic, the repeater! just do the torch+repeater mechanisim

    what about burning the torch out? you could only get a few shots in before the torch burned out. I've tested different pulsers and a 5-clock is the fastest one that doesn't burn out.
