Today I have made a cardboard shooter of my own. It is a combination of crossbow and gun. And the best part is that it can shoot paper bullets continuously. The shooter is like a crossbow with a launching device similar to a bow; it consists of a bow-like assembly, mounted horizontally on a main frame , which is hand-held in a similar fashion to the stock of a long gun. So check out how I made this amazing toy gun for me using cardboad. I hope you will enjoy this one too like my other shooting weapons made earlier like Mini cardboard shooter , Black Widow Gun, Spider man Webshooter.
