  2. I’m just glad, that in the 60’s & 70’s when I was a kid, we didn’t have 3D printers LOL. It was bad enough that we had chemistry sets! Running the family out of the house once because I thought, if 1/4 teaspoon of something mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of something would make a “rotten egg” smell. Then 1/2 a bottle of something with a full bottle of something would make a really big rotten egg smell. I would have gotten in WORSE trouble with something like this. LOL I probably would try to make the distance farther.

    1. Rusty, oh boy, I bet your parents loved that! I remember when I was a kid, I made homemade darts out of matchsticks, needles, and paper for the wings. I made a dartboard and taped it to my wall. There’s nothing more fun than throwing extremely sharp objects around the room.

  3. i understand my grandson’s print will be done by dinnertime

    the high power springs are on his porch as we speak

    thx

    btw…your darts blown out of an empty BIC tube are a lot of fun

  4. update…this shooter has at least a 30 foot range
