I think everyone agrees with that. And sometimes, I wonder what those knex noobs are thinking when they post their crap guns. Just like TheDunkis I came here quite late, I belive it was somewhere in juni '08. I was searching for an image for GDI Zonetrooper's gun and I saw a weird gun made from... Knex! I looked closely and checked out other things on the site, and it was vey fun to see! So I looked for my Knex and started building again. My first gun was a small 4 shot gattling gun that did not worked. My first working gun was a stupid block trigger. But for me it was amazing, though it only reaced 1 meter! My first gun that I made without any help was flimsy, huge and could not even shoot, but it looked sooooo awesome! Then I built my SPACSAILS, and so on. In the future, I hope to see more knex ibles that are not related to guns, or to really cool ones. I also hope to see Ibles related to games, with C&C, Imperium Galactica and Halo in paricular.

I'm sure those were the good ol' knex days for everyone including nonknexers...because we didn't flood instructables with noobs guns then. Well I came here late I think I first saw this site around last Dec and joined I think either Jan or Feb. It first started when a new kid came to our school that joined our social group. He made these awesome pen shooters that had great strength (i'm hoping to replicate this design in knex) a knex rod could fit in there perfectly and get good distance but still obviously not as powerful as a sniper here. Well he had quite a few and was selling them and made a good profit. I searched the internet for somethign similar but better so that I could make a quick easy profit. Eventually it dragged me to you tube which showed me lego guns and then that dragged me into knex guns. I thought it was awesome how you could construct something to shoot projectiles with knex and I had a few pieces laying around so I made some small ones. I got dragged here after searching some more, got more knex, and now I'm a regualr here that most of you know...I hope. Well knex certainly took off after if first started here.

I'm sure quite a number of people at Instructables think so as well, although in a different sense. Yes, yournamehere's first two K'nex posts. One day I randomly thought, "Hey, why don't I Google 'knex gun'?" And before I knew it, I was addicted to Instructables.
no way! me to(of corse i did that after i saw the knexacater on youtube)
