How to make a homemade dart target/storage box... whichever you choose it to be.

A box, preferably a box that holds computer paper

Paper/aluminum foil/ something thin enough for a dart to go through

Tape/glue/stapler w/staples... I recommend tape because it is very easy to work with with these thin materials, does not need to dry, and it was the only thing I had at the time of making this.

Step 1:
Open the box. If it comes in two, and the bottom half has a gap on the top edge of any side, then use that... otherwise use scissors to make a big enough gap for u to put the darts into and easily take them out.

Step 2:
Use whatever thin material you have chosen and bond it to the box. (When I say bond I mean use the tape, staples, or glue.)

And that is it. Simple enough, that is the final product. Now if you want to use it as a target, just start shooting at the thin material, when there is a bunch of holes, then here's step 3:

Rip off the thin material and repeat step 2.

Simple enough.

Now I don't think that I need to add photos to this because everyone knows what these materials look like. If I still need to, just let me know, and I will try and add the photos.

I know. I was just busting your Muttonchops. It's just what I do.

The only reason I don't hate this thread is because there aren't tons of terrible "target" type threads already in existence.

That being said, this "tutorial" needs some pictures to be worth keeping, in my opinion.

Also, on a more relevant note: I have found that shooting high powered blasters into a box through something thin such as tin foil doesn't contain the darts very well. They carry so much power that they end up bouncing off (or penetrating) the back wall of the box and out the front of the box again. If a box type target interests you, and you are shooting high powered blasters into it, I recommend hanging a sheet of cloth from the ceiling of the box to hang freely behind the paper/tin foil target. This sheet will slow the darts considerably so that a) you darts don't bounce back out of the box and B) your darts don't deform as much from impact when doing some simple target shooting.

We let your first thread go through and told you how to fix it. Not only is this idea not original at all you've again failed again to meet the simple rules of a writeup.

Please reread the New Members Guide and check out the directory threads for how to make a proper writeup.
