Projectiles should never be shot at any living thing. Injury or damage may result. Lighting match heads and firing them indoors is strongly discouraged. Competent adult supervision is advised when using the device. There may be other risks associated with these projects that have not been disclosed, or of which I am not aware. Use of video content is at own risk.

Project Inspired By:

Instructables author "Samarai" and his awesome tutorial on making a Clothespin Gun. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-t...

Project History & More Info:

I made some minor modifications to this "Clothespin Gun" idea, as well as loads of personal testing and experimenting that resulted in over 7 prototypes, but in the end, this design proved to be really great, and a fun toy for me and my kids.
