This is a fully automatic rubber band machine gun. It will fire 70 bands continuously or in short bursts. It’s clever design requires no electric motor to fire the gun as most of these guns do. If you own a farm or have an area with a lot of flies, this is the answer for you. There is a set of plans available on amazon for about 20 dollars. Construction is not difficult but a full shop makes it easy. Tip: The gun uses #33 rubber bands. New rubber bands are sticky when new. Coat the new bands with talcum power. This makes them slick and when you fire the gun and the gun will look like it’s smoking. Note SAFETY GLASSES are a must(unless you are a fly and then it won’t really matter.) This is a really fun project.

Very cool. I can see me getting pulled over one day and the Police Officer searches my sled and finds this. My luck I get to explain this to a judge and have to endure being laughed at. Never mind someone posts a video of it on Youtube!
