So one time, i was practising throwing cards. i lay on the floor tossing cards at the ceiling. One stuck there, embedded in the popcorn texture. Stayed there for weeks. High ceiling. Any other examples of a long shot?

It currently only has 13 entries, but the Mugshot Museum is a website to bookmark and check back when you're bored. This is True collects bizarre stories from the world's news media (there's a newsletter - I suggest you sign up), and sometimes the stories come with mugshots of the perps. The site's author realised that the mugshots were popular, so he gave them their own site.

It's done. I decided to scrap the shell idea because it didn't benefit the gun at all. It can be easily modded for shells though, it still has the open breach type thing. I finally made a trigger, loosely based off of spider massacre. So now, it's a single shot. It's very powerful. Right now I have it shooting 60+ feet with 2 #64's. It fires grey or red rods. I prefer grey. I'll post it sometime soon. New stuff - -New barrel that uses oodammo (oodalumps' ammo). I call this the lumpy barrel.-Ammo holder for oodammo.

I was bored today and thought I would get the Fuji film out and take some shots of these cpu's I just pulled out of some towers at the dump, hopefully I can get more soon to add to my collection, as far as I know these all appear to be in working order (nothing better then working art).Anyways I may post more pictures later (this is my 4th F****** time writing this topic, apparently instructables has some rather SHODDY safari support....the cause of my many heated fustrations with this website, so the chance of me coming back later are slim).

So, I've been working on a new shotgun for a while, sort of as a sequel to my first one. I just finished version 1, and will be testing it for a while, and I will hopefully have instructions a little bit after that. Features: New, easier system for loading shells/cartridges True, sliding trigger Decent power (more than the last shotgun) More solid construction Still no mag though :(

Woah - these chaps used a stick, a couple of off-the-shelf sensors and a USB prototyping board to make a real slingshot that will actually control a game of Angry Birds! I believe the "youths" who are "down with it" would refer to the final device as "well wikid". They've even been so kind as to provide full instructions, parts lists and code, just so anybody who wants to can make their own! Kudos, chaps. What would be really awesome, of course, is if they joined us here and provided a proper Instructable... ;-) (Image taken from http://mbed.org/cookbook/Slingshot)

Hello, This is the first knex gun that I have submitted on this site. It's a single shot gun that fires blue rods. It has a true trigger mechanism, and has a range from about 10 metres (I think that is approx 30ft.?) with only one rubberband (because my dad doesn't like it when I hit the walls). About me, I don't have alot experience with k'nex guns. I'm building them for about six months. I built the_burrito_master's Park and Mepain's Inferno, and a few other guns. This one is the first that I really like. So I thought, let's post it! Please comment, and if you think I can improve things, please tell me. PS: I'm sorry for my bad English. I'm Dutch and only 13 years old, so I have much to learn. Please correct me if I make any mistakes!

Ok, I want an opinion on which is better: single-shots, or guns with mags?so far........6 single shots, 7 magsarguments to help outSINGLE SHOTPROS-faster to load-get better range-easy on knex parts-easy to buildCONS-you need to constantly reload after every shotMAGSPROS-more ammo-less reloadsCONS-more prone to jamming and misfiring than single shots-take longer to reloadjudging from these arguments, and ones i forgot to mention, which is better?

Will someone please make an app for our troops- one that uses multiple iphones to acoustically triangulate the location of the source of a gunshot and multiple gunshots so that each phone user could hold their phone up with a real time image and see an overlay of the exact position of the shooters. It's too expensive for the military to implement, but the kids can have phones. P.S. Not sure who this guy is shooting at, not sure if he lived. http://www.break.com/index/soldier-films-himself-being-shot-by-taliban-2373200

I got bored with my HAWC bow, and seeing as shotguns seem to be all the rage these days I thought I'd do a remake of my FSSG. For those of you who weren't around in 2009 the FSSG was a single barrel break action shotgun that was incredibly sturdy reliable and powerful, (picture below is the version posted). What I wanted to know is, is there anything that I should try to intergrate into the original design, for example I have had thoughts about a double barrel break action system. Suggestions that I will not accept, because either they interfere with the original gun too much or because I can't be bothered.: Double barrel (already said) put a turret on it. pump action semi auto. Others may be added

Hello everyone I would like to tell you about my new weapon system. That uses a easy load mag like Ironman69's. It will come in 4 slightly different versions that will include. The standard version that will have a full stock, hand grip, and iron sights. Then there is the para-trooper version that will have a twiggy stock and will be a little smaller and it will have vertical fore grip and iron sights just like the standard version. Then there will be compact version that will just have a shorter barrel than the para-trooper. Then there is a special forces edition that will have a mock silencer, a longer fore grip with side rails for flash lights and laser pens,and will come with a mock scope. At the moment I do not have a date of release.

Hi! I'm selling this super modified Nerf Longshot. The paint job was based off of Coop772's paint job that he did. The mods I did to this is listed in the video. I did take a few pictures from SGNerf and Coop772 because I forgot to take a picture of some of the internals and I already put the gun back together. If you have any questions feel free to comment below. Thanks for viewing! Video of this (video embed code doesn't seem to work): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyH-N6wm16A

For two years or so before I joined site, I've been building K'nex guns. Here are my two recent weapons of plastic destruction. The Oodammo pistol I built (The D2OP) or (The Dark Owl's Oodammo Pistol's) most interesting feature is that the mag tilts and locks downwards due to friction. It also features: A no rubber banding required trigger. A high mag cap. A comfortable handle (at least for me). Iron sights. The above mentioned magazine. All it needs is a better ram rod; I didn't put much thought into it. Second on the agenda, we have a NAR reminiscent pistol. it, instead of using the NAR transfer, uses my own custom DOT system (Dark Owl Transfer). Yeah, I just made that up now. It sounds good and everything. Wow! Actually, this gun has a name now; it's the DOT Pistol. Funny how this works. Anyways, this transfer is unique not only in its design but in its removability. When you pull down the lock as shown in the pictures, you can take the transfer right out, turning it into a regular single shot if you so chose. It's other features are: Very good range (I haven't tested it, but it goes considerably far with one rubber band). Comfortable Handle (But not as comfortable as the D2OP's in my opinion). Removable hatch DOT system (explained above). Bullet Lock. Sadly, it has no sites, but from what I've heard, not everybody wants them, anyway. Both of these guns are now posted with instructions to all those that are interested: The D2OP: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-D2OP-Dark-Owls-Oodammo-Pistol/ The DOT Pistol: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-DOT-Pistol-Dark-Owls-Transfer-Pistol/

I have an idea for a knex video game. basically, you have several missions at various locations and they get progressively harder. ideas for missions (easiest to hardest) -instructables HQ -golden gate bridge (the areas where mechanics go) -Beijing, china -monte carlo casino -Empire State Building -Sears tower weapons -the Dunkis TDS (default weapon at the start of level)-10 shots -Dsman's sidearm-10 shots -I_am_canadian's heavy cannon (non-movable turret)-3 shots -my Longbow SR-L crossbow-5 shots -SR-v1-5 shots -DD-27-5 shots -oodalump's machine gun-25 shots -Storm 223-15 shots -a grenade of some sort enemies have 3 hit points each except for elite commandos, who have 10. the bosses have a health meter and a shield that must be defeated first

Ok, for those of you who had seen my shotgun design, you could probably tell it was over before it had even started. I had tried 5 different layouts and I couldn't get past the frontmost barrel without running into problems. I think it was a cool design, but it was just too much for K'nex. Most of my best get designs just pop into my head at the most random times. Is it just me, or does this happen to other people too? Anyways I was trying to make it until the bell in pre-cal (my teacher is a crazy cat woman who enjoys talking about her imaginary husband) and I just started drawing this design. Not only did it kill 10 minutes but it may just be the best thing I've come up with in terms of K'nex. The magazine looking thing in front of the handle is actually the driving mechanism in this gun. Shots are housed in the stock pressing up against the pusher. When the pump is pulled, the pusher moves down, allowing two bullets (one shot) into the chamber. When the pump is released, the pusher pushes the bullets up against an upper section, where they wait for the trigger so be pulled, releasing the ratchet and the rubber band, launching the two bullets with a decent (I hope) spread. Even though it doesn't shoot yet it is fun to just load the ammo (thats just how cool this gun it). It is probably going to be a little different than what is shown in the video by the time I post it, but right now I'm just going with what I have. I hope you like it and please let me know of any improvements you can come up with. -Kinetic

Has anyone ever made a spring airgun? like an airsoft gun made from home made items. because pnumatic guns are too simple (some are very good though) but it gets anoying pumping in between shots so has anyone either made a multi shot pnumatic gun (not fully auto matic) or a spring airgun that needs to be cocked ever shot

Have you ever noticed that people keep making 1 shot frontloading knex guns without feeders or clips, it's like using muskets when we have full automatics, stop it please dont! Even if it can rip through cardboard, they are still one shot guns. try designing better guns and stop thinking that a oneshot gun with nooo inprovements is going to impress people. It only clogs up the site. Anyway I love knex and back in the good old days nobody built to many bad guns, now a whole lot of people are making block trigger front loading guns!!!!!

I had an idea to make a new (i think) type of knex machine gun. it is like knexwizard's semi auto rifle but it has a single shot trigger from viccie.b's crossbow. i made it but it fired its whole magazine (20 grey connectors) in one shot! after modifiying it to put tonnes of friction on the wheel that holds the bands i got it to fire its mag in two shots- still not good enough. can anyone help me?

I'm interested in making a yardage book for one of the golf courses i play at. The only problem is that i don't know an accurate way to measure the change in distance through elevation. For instance if a shot to a green with no change in elevation requires a 7-iron, then a shot of the same distance that is downhill should require a club that will hit the ball a shorter distance. My question is, is there a formula of some type that i can enter the rate of change in slope and the distance, and get the actual distance needed for the shot.

Hey guys! Today, I'm going to be reviewing a 10 shot, auto-loading rifle by Bannana Inventor. Some notes before I start. -All credit goes to the builder, not me. -I'm rating on a 1 to 5 scale. -I review guns by request.(the dragonuv is up next) Ok. Now that you have that. I'll start the review. Handle/Gripping-3.8 The handle could have been a little slimmer. Plus there isn't really a good front grip-type-thing.(Yes. I had no word for that situation.) Range-4.5 Pretty good, especially for its size, and the fact that it is a magazine-fed gun. I got mine about 35 feet. Accuracy-5.0*** One word- Pinpoint. Power-3.0 It's power is restricted, since the bullet is so light. But for the bullet, it has some power. Body/weight balance-5.0*** Great balance throughout the gun. The body isn't flimsy. Stock is comfortable. But on a note, which was stated by The Jamalam, it was made by him and used on his storm guns. Credit goes to him. And now one word. AWESOMENESS!!! Reliability-4.0 Since the magazine uses blue 3-d connectors, you have that millimeter sized jut on the inside of the magazine. So, the magazine sometimes jams, but you only have to push up slightly on the magazine ram. OVERALL-4.2!!!!!!!!!! Overall, great rifle. Auto-loading is a good feature, and a true trigger pleases a lot of k'nexers. Take those, and you get a gun like this. One of Bannana Inventor's best. Review by Ratchet and Clank. Gun by Bannana Inventor Thanks for reading this review! I hope you enjoyed it! Good luck building this, becouse this rifle is a must in your arsenal.

Have you ever noticed that people keep making 1 shot front-loading knex guns without feeders or clips, it's like using muskets when we have full semi autos and repeaters, stop it please don't! Even if it can rip through cardboard, they are still one shot guns. try designing better guns and stop thinking that a one shot gun with nooo improvements is going to impress people. It only clogs up the site causing it hard to read the good stuff. Anyway I love knex and back in the good old days nobody built to many bad guns, now a whole lot of people are making block trigger front loading guns, try using existing designs and improve them but there's not much to improve with these simple tube,block,stick and rubber band projectile launchers!!!!! To sum it up, no more Killerk or your name here copies
Posted by hobo lord 11 years ago
First of all let me just say that i find killerks magnum, yes killerk's, a pretty good gun.Its design is very good so good that it can be modified in several different ways ways.After a few tweaks to the trigger mechinism i was able to apply a strong rubberband, so it could finally reach about 38-45 ft and hit hard with one shot.But i also discovered a shotgun effect when put three bullets in.I know the picture isn't good and its not mine but my computer isn't letting me upload mine.try to follow my explanation.You put the bullet in the main barrel(orange connecter) then above and below there are two empty slots where the ram also hits, jam(not really jam just put in) 2 more bullets above and below, so when shot three come out!SORRY FOR CRAPPY EXPLANATION BUT ITS NOT LETTING ME CREATE NOTES!Technically shotguns arn't susposed to go very far so when you put 3 'slugs' it only reachs 15 feet but hurts really hard. really HARD.If you already know this feature then don't blame me , its something that hasn't been shared.BTW its also cooler when held sideways so the shot comes in a split effect.IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!

I will be trying to design a new knex revolver I figured that there only two that worked well (I think Its extreme builder and spyrans) mine will be built to scale like the original gun which has a barrel one foot long and a six shot(or eight shot) cylinder.
Posted by strato96 10 years ago
Well, i'm not allowed to play knex for a while, cuz i shot my 11 year old bro. Let me tell you the story: I built a cheap block trigger, with a red firing pin (sorta like the one in the picture) and shot his hand from a good distance (6 feet) and he started crying. Get This- The gun had two really stretchy elastics on it, and it couldn't even shoot across my room! I shot my hand from 0.5 feet and hardly felt it! Now my knex is taken away!

This is my first post so i don't know exactly what to do. Here is a video of my marble gun it can shoot semi auto or single shot. i became interested in these because of spudfiles.com now i have a site that sells them it is freewebs.com/pats-spuds so you can check that out too. the gun only cost about $45 to make. in single shot at 70 psi the marble will go through a 3/4inch piece of plywood.the video is shot using semiauto at 35psi because that is as high as my pump will go. hope you like it.
