This is my first instructable so go easy on the comments, thank you.
This is my mortar it does not fire very far but it is pretty cool. This Mortar uses 89 pieces and is very simple to make.
note: I am not responsible for whatever you do with this Mortar.
Step 1: The Parts List
This is what you`ll need to make this.
1 yellow or red gear
And you will need 2 rubber band/elastics
Step 2: The Stand

Step 4: The Fireing Pin
This Will Luanch the Bullet.
Make this bye looking at the picture.
Step 5: Putting It All Together.
This is were you will assemble every thing you just made.
Pic. #1:This were the elastics from the fireing pin will attach to the barrel, put the green pegs over the elastics so the fireing pin will not fly out of the barrel when you fire.
Pic. #2:The stand connects to the barrel like this.
Step 6: The Amunition
This is the bullet that will be fired from the gun.
Simply look at it and build it.
Step 7: Loading and Fireing
To load this you push the fireing pin back so the red rod goes throught the snowflake and clip an orange connector at the end of the red rod for sort of like a trigger/safety.
To fire simply unclip the orange connector.
Have fun and feel free to modify.
