Mini Rubber-band Cannon

Intro: Mini Rubber-band Cannon

this is a small yet powerful(for what it is) canon that's easy to make and can easily fit in your pocket. great for school (don't get caught)

Step 1: Supplies Needed

1.piece of card board, pop-cicle sticks, etc. (anything for a surface)
2.a hollowed out pen tube
3.a pick-up stick, or the "pen" part of the pen tube
4.a rubber band
5. hot glue, or tape

Step 2: Putting It Together

1.glue or tape the pen tube to what ever small surface your using and glue or tape the rubber band about two inches from the back of the tube.
2.tape or glue the stick or pen part to the rubber band with most of the stick in the tube
3.let dry (if your using glue)

Step 3: Fun Time!

pull back stick, place an oblect down the front of the tube(my favorite thing to use are airsoft bbs), let go and have fun!

    this is a really nice idea. it has tons of room for improv. try using those small ass rubber bands and tying the pen tube to the stick using 2 instead of tape. i think it holds better. and increas the length of the tube. and width. WE WANT BIG AMMO! HAHAHAHA.

    this is ok but i made one that was a lot simpler just with a hollowed out pen, one of the ones with the cap... i just cut off the end of the cap stuck it on there and did nothing with the "surface" thing. it makes it easier to put in your pocket. the only thing you have to do then is put a notch in the end of whatever your shooting with, kinda like an arrow.
