How to make a Pen Bow.
Now, I can go deer hunting with a pen!
Nice DIY toy, though...
Have often thought about blow guns etc. In primitive times with curare, frog sweat, etc as poison they have been incredibly effective and bee venom, ant bite formic acid, etc are painful enough to nearly incapacitate you and then there is the sheer terror of being struck by a weapon with no flash or noise signature that will defeat a body vest by being dangerous or painful with a peripheral hit' Can see somewhat similar effects from crossbow as well.
I was going to say a flare gun.
I keep toying with the idea of a small crossbow(s) as an addition to my oh-S*** collection. Aside from it's use as a direct impact weapon, finding local, native "toad spit" additives would be an excellent force multiplier. I wonder if enough capsaicin could transferred into the blood stream from a small projectile to incapacitate....
I got a bunch of them tiny booze bottles from the airlines, does that make me a miniature alcoholic.
We are going to try this. Very cool
Miniature alcoholism ?
the book has a whole bunch more in it... my nephew sent it to me, he is not only a trouble maker but a ninja trouble maker. And his new job is in maintenance in a zoo. being the new guy he gets all the Shite jobs, makes me laugh when he tells me about swimming in bear and tiger poop to clear drains. He loves it but that doesn't stop his creative side.
He keeps telling me he's going to hunt zoo tigers with the pen bow lol
Making a pen weapon.The original video
Small pan of pinto beans and brick of greasy cornbread.......... Now there is a mini weapon of mass destruction at the chemical and biological level
Have one of our Auzzy friends ship out some of that primo snake venom.. Some of those critters there have venom that works real fast..
Neah i use the GAS weapon, honey more beans.
We would take and old piece of lumber such as a 1x4 and hammer a nail into the end, then fasten a clothespin to the flat of the board as a trigger and use a rubber band to launch projectiles. The ammunition we chose was a flatten Skoal can lid which is metal, but not sharp. Those babies would soar for a long distance.
Here is a DIY video of how to make and throw a bola the right way.
Thought this was really interesting because I have done a lot of what these guys are doing.
