Step 1: Materials

You will need: 1/2" Caulking foam (You can get at most hardware stores for about 3$), Duck tape or hockey tape,  Scissors.

Step 2: Cut the Foam

Now you have to cut the foam to about 2" long. USE SHARP SCISSORS!!!

Step 3: Wrap the Darts

Next wrap each piece of foam about two to four full rotations.  Wrap them really tight if they keep coming loose put a dab of glue under the flap.

Step 4: Finish

You can also blow dry them so they stay straigh.  I will sometimes push a bb into one end for more weight.

Have Fun,

    how would these work in stock guns? dont you have to mod them to do that? anyway, here is a cheaper option that is better, it gives you more darts for effort and money. with these you do not have to mod the gun or the darts they work just like regular.
