Late last year my friend Kyle gave me a leather spike bracelet in an attempt to make me "more hardcore". That failed.
But ever since then I've been meaning to do this to it.

It's stupid-easy to make. You simply buy the leather bracelet that has the holes for studs or whatever but doesn't include them for $1 or $2. Then you need some elastic string and some offcuts of PETG (or whatever other kind of barrel material you have) that you can cut to six 1-inch pieces. Just cut some short lengths of elastic string and tie the short barrel segments to the bracelet and you're done.

Now you have 6 darts that can be loaded very quickly.
If you snap a whole bunch of these together you could make a bandoleer or a belt.

I reccommend you put the ammunition in the holder backwards, so you don't have to pull the ammo out towards your hand.

Hardcore.

I would consider that Hardcore...


Can you get full belts of that? I've seen them with the studs, but I still refuse to even walk past hot topic (I'll go so far as to exit and then reenter the mall on the other side of it so I don't need to walk near it) but the belt would be a lot more clean and convenient to use as an ammo belt or bandoleer or something...

do you ever have a problem with the darts flying out in mid run?

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

They do have them. I'm not sure if they offer them as a kit like they do the bracelets but it would be worth a look.

I would also suggest using a smaller diameter PVC. You won't be worrying mid battle to put darts back in, and they won't fall out if it is a marginally tighter fit, plus, you shouldn't have a problem pulling the darts out with your hand

That's a great design, and probably much quicker to load than a belt or bandolier. I made a simple ammo belt out of a shot-shell belt from walmart and some pieces of cpvc. works great, holds 25 rounds, and holds my holster for my sidearm. But the wrist design would easily add more ammo capacity, and a slightly faster reload.

Sorry to sound negative, it's a great idea and all, however I think that it would take a while to reload the braclet. Once again nice work! :)

But I believe the beauty lies in the fact that you don't have to.
I like this idea a lot, actually, but I see it as more of a use-it-when-you-need-to accessory than a use-it-all-the-time-for-storing-all-your-darts acccessory. Or is that what it's made for?

Correct. I carry most of my darts in a kind of saddle bag clipped onto my belt. But a bracelet is handy if you need to reload a pistol quickly.
