Step 1: Supplies

you will need pliers that can cut wire, the wire (welding lead, get at hardware store), and a rubber band to launch it

Step 2: Cutting Wire

you will need to cut about an inch of wire

Step 3: Bending

this is the easy step, just put the wire in the pliers and it will bend in the middle. try to find pliers big enough

Step 4: Done

well, there you have it. just put around a rubber band and launch. p.s.- these things can really hurt and go far. i've shot them over 100 feet easy. as long as you kinda snap your hand foreward when you let the wasp go, it can really help.

    I remember testing one of these out, 40 years ago. I needed a moving target, so I chose the paperboy, as he walked down the driveway away from our house. Bad choice! Luckily he wasn't injured too severely, but he did have a nasty welt on the back of his head. I still feel bad to this day.

    These babies could seriously injure someone, like taking out an eye, and you will have to live with that feeling forever, not to mention the guy you injure - think first before you shoot at another person!

    Fold up a stickey not a bunch of times, staple a staple into the center of it, bend the prongs of the staple straight, fold and kill someones arm, done :D

    as I got older I just graduated to the REAL paper wasps...grab them by both wings, poke at them with a pencil and then stick them to the back of someones neck...guarantee those will hurt

    "they are new to this world and very awsome." Um No. No they aren't .There is nothing awEsome about this unless you consider legal ramifications like arrest and being sued for personal injury awesome. Basic common sense is your friend. Please use some.

    I call them hornets. I made a special folding style that makes them really hurt. This is just on the brink of insanity. You could get arrested with these.
