Yes, but only because it is an acronym. If I were to actually say 'laugh out loud', I'd do it in lowercase.
I dont risk my knex I just make a paper blowdart gun.

I hope you dont post the gun....

Of course not... Why would I?

BTW, you should replace that gray connector you have as a bullet lock with a red connector. and put the trigger back 1 connector.
travw (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
Why should it be a red connector? There's no difference really. Also, I put the trigger there because it wouldn't really increase power much, and this is more comfy for me.

the red connector makes it less likely to break off.

my teacher actually had knex and i made a gun out of it and shot people put then i had to dismantle it
For some reason I think this is a bad idea. (WORKING GUN-----SCHOOL)
I actually got suspended one time for making a non-firing paper gun (I posted it some time back). I don't know why the principal overreacted like that, but then again he overreacts to everything I do because of VA tech. That was more than 2 years ago however....
what about Virginia tech
oh the shootings yah i live in blacksburg
Well, not exactly a real gun, but I see what you mean.

Nah, I always had one in my backpack. Usually OKP or Minier TDS. Never got caught, but I always used to bug the crap out of my friends. LOL

Nanogun... I got "caught" once and the teacher asked what was so interesting. Held it up and now people don't know if they should be afraid of me or laugh at me.
The nanogun was extremely weak wasnt it? I would have used an El Mosquito. But then again, I have high rep at school. On the other hand, some kids have been shot by my knex guns.
Lol not extremely but yeah it wasn't like I could hit people more than two desks away from me. Besides I never used K'nex pieces so unless I rolled up the perfect sized pieces of paper it would have no use. I did actually bring El Mosquito and the Mini-er TDS before that. Otherwise I use this small block trigger that I found on youtube. I put like 4 #64s so I can actually hit people across the room. When I first found out about K'nex I made something similar and I shot people at the lunch table. They were bad because a knex gun was so much more discrete than our other methods of snapping forks and such. Lol they replaced them with metal forks the next year...I wonder why. But yeah that was the only time I was caught with a gun.
they were mad* wow I could have sworn I spelled that right... Anyways yeah the nanogun and my other small repeaters were showoff guns and the block trigger was my classroom and lunch table wars gun lol.
so block triggers actually have a use... stealth.
Well it's compact and strong. And to my friends who know nothing about K'nex it's still a trigger. Even if it's a not so great design it still gave me the upper hand at the lunch table compared to everyone's pen launchers.
what was your ammo?
At the lunch table I used pieces of broken forks. Of course because of us they replaced them with metal. If I found some I'd use the erasors off of pencils as they would fit perfectly. Otherwise I rolled up pieces of paper tightly.
lol that is cool.

Was the teacher mad?
TheDunkis travw4 years ago
lol not quite. I didn't shoot it I was just showing a guy next me how it worked. The teacher noticed we both had our heads down at sometimes. He just kind of gave me a face of disappointment crossed with a WTF expression. Kind of funny. He just kinda let himself forget it happened and we continued on.
lucky.
hah, I now remember me playing around with Iphone apps in the classroom, particularly a "sound grenade" app that claimed to produce a sound that only ppl 20 and under could hear. Well it didnt work, the teacher heard it, he took the ph0ne.
nice... i almost did that.
