Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

materials
1.a tube of some sort.(not bigger then the width of a pencil)
2.a thick rubber band.(about 9mm I guess)
3.Good tape
4.Skewers
5.a clip or something to hold the rubber band.(I will explain later)
Optional
6.a pair of binoculars
7.glue
8.a pen
oh.ps.for the tube i used some 89cent pvc.
9.A sharpie marker.(to color it black)
10.a target(i know its tempting but "a target" is not your sister)

Step 2: Start

Take the pipe and decide which end you want it to fire.The opposite end will be the loading end.take the clip and clip it about 3cm from the loading end,glue or tape if you want.

Step 3: Loading and Firing

put a skewer into the loading end.take a rubber band and pinch it at the end of the skewer and hold it. take the other end of the band and put it on the clip so it holds.pull back the pinched skewer and fire.

Step 4: Optional Stuff

1.Glue is a subsitute for tape.
2.Binoculars or some sort of sight look cool.
3.Color it with black marker or something.
4.The pen is to make it longer.I think it improves accuracy and speed.
5.Try those big pink andy boy bands,anything works.
6.I don't know the max speed and range.Tell me in your comments.
7.Bigger skewers mean less speed,but you could use them to push out bb's.Smaller skewers jam or don't hit them properly.Let me know about other ways.
8.Realoading takes about 4-10 seconds.
9.NEED TRIGGER,WANT AUTOLOADER.

    maybe thick steel wire (alambre in filipino) with the gauge a little smaller than the tube. Then temper it so that it won't bend upon impact

    instead of using a skewer for a bb gun you could use dowel or the inside of a mechanical pencil

    I made mine before yours and it's simpler, but its a circle so it's harder to hold and I made my own peep sight.

    These skewers shoot surprisingly quickly! Your gun handle is awesome!

    "uses proper spelling and grammer" - just look at some of the things on this site! "is tipically written about something you are passionate about and want to share" - that's why it is on instructables! not to be rude, but this was definately "better" (closer to the criteria you have stated) than some of the other things i have read on this site

    Okay, I've been riding around Instructables wielding my grammar sword, and I'd just like to refer you to here. :P

    I'm not sure if you mispelled typically and grammar for humorous reasons, but it still set me off. ; )

    I wonder if there's an international grammar-nazi day. . . :D
