How to Make a Pen Weapon!

About: That Kid that makes random stuff.

Ok so today I am going to be showing you how to make a pen weapon.
It will shoot through cardboard and pretty far.
so lets get started

Please note: this is my first ACTUAL instructable, so please bear with me if anything is not good, and feel free to ask questions in the comments.


Step 1: Materials

You will need:
- a Bic pen
- Clear tape
- An elastic band

Step 2: Prepping the Pen

First of all you want to take apart your pen...
- Start by removing the cap (Duh..)
- Then use your teeth to remove the top part holding in the ink.
- Finally use you teeth to remove the end cap at the bottom
- Discard the cap (or keep it), all you will need is the ink, and the tube
alternatively you can use pliers.

Step 3: Prepping the Elastic

The only thing you need to do to get the elastic ready is to break it.

Step 4: Putting It Together

Putting it together is easy...

- First Take the tube and tape the elastic to it. (Picture 1) (Make it strong)
- Then Pull the loop over one of the open ends of the elastic (Picture 2)
- Now you are ready to fire!

TIP: The more tension on the elastic, the stronger it will be.

Step 5: FIRING!

Firing is easy
- Insert the ink tube into the tube against the elastic on the other end (Picture 1)
- Use the elastic to grab the ink tube, Pull back and let go!!

Step 6: Done!

Thanks for reading my instructable and I hope it helps!
