    Lol, I remember doing this back in HS. Some liked to add staples for skin penetration. We lost a lot of good men.

    GOD!! Basically everyone in my grade is either the victim of those little devils or a marksmen with those. That's why i am making a high power pen gun. so if somebody shoots one of those at me they'll have another thing coming. PS i am twelve.

    V-darts, hornets, wasps, 'flingy thingys'... those are the old names of these things. V-darts remind me of the V-1 and V-2, so would this be called the VP in my school? Seriously, this has never been heard of at my school, as in never. Except for one or two of my colleagues...

    In year six we had 'Paper Wasp' (as we called them) wars. So fun, extremely simple and you made a nice Instructable out of it. To make it even deadlier, make them thinner and insert thumb tacs. Very pointy.

    Tape 2 pencils together like a sligshot and tape the elastic at the top then shoot the V-Darts it is much more powerfull and acurate. Also you can put duct tape over the paper darts to make them more areodynamic. My class uses them alot we have exparimented... lol. 13 years old ...ftw

    we call them hornets, some people shoot pen caps and put staples in them but I think if you make a good hornet it huts more.
