Because I am in the 6th grade I am not allowed to purchase firearms or any other means of self-defense. But then I realize that not all lethal weapons are composed of a metal frame and do damage with a bullet. So I decided to make a blow gun.
Take two pvc pipes of differing lengths and a connector piece and connect them together. This is so you can disassemble it so you can store it and make it portable but also so you can clean it.
The blow gun part is finished. Now all you need to do is make the ammunition. You first take a nail and a square piece of paper and wrap the paper around the nail tightly.
After you finish wrapping let it loose a little bit so its diameter is about an inch at the top and push the nail through. Put a piece of tape across the middle now.
Now tape the nail to the paper and it’s time to test fire. Penetration is good depending on how much of the nail is showing when you pushed the nail through.
Even though it does look funny, it works very effectively. If there is one thing I know for sure it is that I will be sleeping with this next to my bed every night.
Note: Because, I used to make the same type of blowgun when I was Hunters age and he reminds me of a younger me, I’m sending him a free copy of my book “31 Days to Survival“.
