Flying Homemade Bolt Made From Antenna




About: Own my own business

i made several bolts to try out homemade exploding bolts since i lost all my regular bolts i used antenna section the same diameter as the original bolts they fly fast and could be just an old tv antenna or radio antenna.

Step 1: What You Need:

I made several different bolts that worked out and when hit are as load as a 12gauge going off and could really mess up your day so whatever you do is up to you but use common sense.

Whatever you do be safe.

Step 2:

  • Fill the antenna with gun powder or if you can not find any, use powder out of firework artillery shells. Just the launching portion contents, not the top part of the shell. I think it makes for a better blast

Step 3:

  • Find some shotgun primers or rifle primers a way to ignite your device on impact

Step 4: Finished Project

These types of arrows can be very dangerous and do some damage! They are great for triggering another device from a distance. I just wish that I had the capacity to mass produce them, they are very fun to shoot and very loud!!! I have freeze framed a picture of one impacting an old washer lid last night in my backyard from a distance of about 5 yards away. i recommend using extreme caution due to flyin shrapnel. The further you can get away from your target the better! The last thing you want is to injure yourself in a apocalyptical situation and have it slow you down and ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION!!!!
