How to Make a Clothespin Pocket Pistol (AKA Mini Matchstick Gun)
Clothespins are pretty innocent-looking, but with a mod here and a hack there, that innocence quickly turns into danger. Well, sort of. In this project, we'll be turning an ordinary spring-action clothespin into powerful matchstick and toothpick shooter that can shoot apples and lob fiery darts over 20 feet.
A matchstick gun is essential to your collection of desktop weaponry.
This little pocket pistol will shoot a matchstick with power, blast toothpicks into fruit, and lob fiery darts. The best parts is, it can be made fairly easily and for almost nothing!
All you need for this project is some wood glue, a utility knife, and a wooden clothespin. Just make sure it's the kind with the metal spring.
