Introduction: Shotgun Nerf Dart
The Nerf dart shoots and acts like a shotgun bullet.
I got this idea from N-Striker *and Celloman* from (their) idea of shotgun darts from knex.
I have also another idea I came up w/ from Stefans (from Twisted and other people) that you can use Split Shot Sinkers used for fishing. You still put the tic tac down the about lenght shown in step 4, but instead of filling with tic tacs, put (2) split shot sinkers size BB and then put a size PSS-7 sss in to seal it. Note (1): These darts are heavier that regular darts, and Note (2): I have done some testing on different nerf guns with these sss darts. That I know of, this only works on the (air restrictor and spring modded) longshot, possibly the attachment to the longshot, possibly the n-strike revolver thing, and possibly the Recon (small one). I have tested this also on the Recon CS-6, the (un-modded) longshot, and a couple of REALLY small guns, and those didn't work. If anyone would like to test these darts on other guns, that'd be okay.
I WONT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INJURIES SO DONT AIM FOR THE FACE AND WEAR EYE GEAR IF POSSIBLE.

Step 1: Things You Need
Here is what you need
1. Nerf darts (duh)
2. Tic Tacs (any kind)
4. Pliers (maybe)
5. A pin or knex piece
Step 2: Take Apart
Take your nerf dart and cut of the tip of it.
Then, use your fingers (or a pair of pliers) to rip out the little nub out of the center of the dart.
Step 3: The Tic Tacs
Now take your tic tacs and cut the up with your scissors. Its easiest to cut them in half as shown and cut the from there. Make sure you have at least 2 big pieces that can fit snuggly in the nerf dart.
Step 4: The Insertion
Now take one big piece and push it down to the about length. I found it easy to do this with a piece of knex. Then put in smaller pieces. Then, seal it up with the other big piece. OR OR OR OR OR some people have had problems with the tic tac pieces coming out, so you can take the little nub that you took out in step 2 and put it in (very lightly so it is BARELY in) and that usually works better than the big tic tac piece in it. NOTE: put it in so that it is barely in the nerf dart, or it might not come out at all and will get jammed in.
Step 5: Your Done!
LOCK & LOAD!
