GREAT IDEA
ok first, thanks to dammoonnm for the link to the site, one of the people there had an idea to have the round fired like a normal rubberband gun, but the rubber band hits a bullet and fires it and the band stays in the gun.
on with the idea
here is a pic

brown - hammer
green - trigger
blue - firing pin
yellow - rubber band
red - bullet
purple - barrel
black - springs

the hammer is cocked, and when released by the triggerhit the spring loaded firing pin, and releases the rubberband into the bullet. the rubber band is held in place at the end of the barrel. i'll go build a prototype in my room, be back later!
well all the guns i made didn't work, sorry i didn't post this until now, but i got a third motor for christmas so i'll try to make sumtin with motors to fire it
I made a crossbow with a trigger out of lego. Plan to write an instructable on it. I made 2 versions, one with a peg as the trigger and one witht the trigger out of lego. Hopefully i'll beable to make something better soon. (ie. shoot-shoot-shoot-shoot-reload-shoot-etcetera, not just shoot-reload-shoot)
POST IT POST IT POST IT POST IT
i wanna build a lego crossbow that works better than the one i made a while ago... i have a vid of it!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SS77wEpX9dA
sorry the other video link didn't work
Okay, I've started making an intructable for my crossbow. Expect it within the week. It'll hopefully (fingers crossed) have a video of me putting it together aswell as shooting it. Just to make it even easier to understand. :)
I've made some improvements to it since before the post when you said "POST IT" x4 Like instead of using elastic it uses rubberbands, with room for more rubberbands, i can shoot a lego target (i made) with a 6x8 hit area from about 10-15ft away (or about 4 meters)
thats 6x8 piece lego block (flat one) (48mm x 65mm (about 1 8/10" x 2.5"
ooohh yay tomorrow's my b-day =D
