This is a simple toothpick shooter you can make. You probably have everything you need in your house. If you do it right, it can shoot about 20 meters.

Step 1: Gather Materials

As I said, most of the materials and tools you probably already have. I found that a hand pump is better than a foot pump, but I couldn't find the hand hand pump that I used to use.

Materials:
1. pump
2. index card
3. toothpick

Tools:
1. scissors

Step 2: Prepare Index Card

 Use the scissors to cut the index card in half vertically.

Step 3: Break Toothpick

The title is pretty self explanatory, but in case you didn't figure it out, you should BREAK THE TOOTHPICK IN HALF!

Step 4: Roll Index Card

Roll the index card around the paper clip, be sure to do it tight.

Step 5: Put Index Card Into Pump

 Stuff the index card into the pump, make sure it is tight. You can adjust with scissors and extra card.

Step 6: Load & Shoot

Jam the toothpick into the hole in the index card. Aim and pump to shoot

    you can also use some spray paint or mini gas tank or stuff like that. be careful if you use gas though, use it in a well ventilated space and try not to set anything on fire.
