Pain like no other… “V” paper darts!
If you have ever been “buzzed” or “pinged” by one of these “harmless” paper darts / pellets then you know exactly what I mean when I say… “Holy shit… what the fuck was that! I think I’ve just been shot!” and then you check your body where it feels like a fire is burning on your skin and you see a very red V shape impact mark!
I was first a victim to this craze at secondary school and as soon as I had become an innocent victim, I turned into a vigilante hunter searching for scoundrels who had targeted me with these dangerous little darts created from a simple piece of rolled up paper. Although I may add… even though its paper, it still hurts like a piece of metal. I never knew paper could be so strong if rolled tight & small. Simply amazing!
I remember “experimenting” by firing all sorts of projectiles including paper clips but I would strongly advise against the use of drawing pins strategically placed in the paper pellet as I found out during an English lesson that I would never forget! Some clown in my class fired one of these special hornets at me at the little bitch got stuck in the back of my neck!!!
I must add that the paper clips were also lethal too as I cracked a window with one at home. My mother was not best pleased as you could imagine! I would stick with a good old fashioned paper dart pellet professionally created by yourself as this can do a lot of damage. I’ve managed to get some long distance on them and from a short distance they can punch a massive whole through a cardboard box. If you get a friend to hold a sheet of paper up, it can tear the page clean in half.
- Set up targets such as cardboard boxes to improve accuracy.
- Wear a glove when firing so it doesn’t sting as it snaps your hand.
- Fold a little more for more power! The smaller… the harder… the better!
- If you want it to go very far, get more rubber bands and join them together. (Not more then 10 rubber bands it would get hard to shoot.)

Send me some of your designs or V imprints that you’ve suffered and I’ll post them on here.
Until next time…
