Step 1: Materials Needed:
- Bamboo Skewers
- Scissors or knife
- 2 brand new pencils (recomended)
- 1 emptied pen tube
- Tape (any type)
- Binder Clip
Step 2: Step 3
Tape the pencils together at each end.
Step 3: Step 4
Cut a small length of pen tube. This will soon serve as your barrel.
Step 4: Step 5
Tape the pen tube to either end of the pencils.
Step 5: Step 6
Then take your binder clip, and tape it to the opposite side.
Step 6: Step 7
You can choose to soak your bamboo skewers in hot water, till they are more flexible.
This is entirely optional, for the rubber band is the main firing mechanism.
Step 7: Step 8
Bend the skewers into a bow-type shape after soaking, to form them properly. Allow them to dry entirely.
If you chose not to soak your skewers, disregard this step.
Step 8: Step 9
Now take the skewers, and tape them to the very top of your pencils.
Step 9: Final Step
Cut your rubber band tie it to both ends and load with another bamboo skewer and fire!! Happy shooting..........I am NOT liable for any injuries caused by this weapon.
