Just playing around tonight with some ideas for making a credit card sized shooter (50 x 80mm)
Here are a few ideas so far, thought I'd share them with you.

these look great!
i'm leaning towards the middle right
Mini shooters are always fun to plink with.

you could use thin aluminum, or Ti. but these look like fun to shoot
That's a great idea! It is similar in concept to the altoids tin-compatible series that I made, except they are smaller. I presume that if you're making them credit card sized, then you plan to fit them into a wallet and will make them no thicker than 3.5mm.
Here are the challenges:
I will update these attachments later; I will experiment with a pinkie hole derivative.
- TTF doesn't work. Essentially it shoots like a PFS with a pure OTT action
- The fork gap shape / tips need undercut to keep the bands on
- Flexibility and structural strength is an issue if you are using plastic credit cards
- Grip is a problem; you need a lanyard
- Sharp edges and protrusions may make for an uncomfortable grip

I got a question? Do you get a hand slap with short forks?
