this is a how to on how to make a bow'n'arrow that has a range of about 80 feet and it only involves 4 pieces (i apologize if i just blew your mind, it happens to me all the time) you may be thinking to yourself, how is this possible? it is quite simple just read the rest of the instructable!
Step 1: Materials Needed
piece of PVC (about as big as in the picture).
a strip of nylon cord (about as long as in the picture)
duct tape (i chose red cause its a magical color)
arrows (sorry but you have to buy them at dicks unless you want to try to make them on your own)
saw (i used the saw built into my pocket knife and it worked just fine)
common sense not to shoot your friends or light your arrows on fire or any other irresponsible but good ideas you have
Step 2: Assembly of Bow
the first thing you do is use your saw to cut 2 ridges that are across from eachother about half an inch deep each. do this on both sides of the PVC pipe but make sure the ridges on both sides of the bow align with eachother. after that, tie the string around the notches on 1 side then tie it to the other leaving not much excess inbetween the two ends. then cover the ends with duct tape (as shown in the picture). but also cut up the duct tape so the string is not ripping it or pulling it off
Step 3: The Arrow
go to dicks and buy an arrow (in the pic is a good brand to buy)
