Introduction: Chopstick Rubber Band Gun

A fun, simple to make, and good for a rainy day. You only need 6 chopsticks and a grip of rubber bands (3 if you dont want any ammo).

Step 1: Materials

All you need is 6 chopsticks and a grip of rubber bands(3 if you dont want ammo) Sorry for the minor color distortion on this first picture, my camera went crazy.

Step 2: Trigger and Body

Put the chopsticks how the picture shows it and then wrap the rubber band like how its shown so the bottom of the trigger points forward(if it points backward it will be hard to shoot, load, aim, .ect) Dont ask about the orange thing, its probably a Lucky Charm *slaps brother on the head*

Step 3: Barrel (Well, Thats What I Call It)

Ok, now were on to the barrel. Put two chopsticks on top and on bottom of the front of the body and wrap the rubber band like its shown and then do the same thing to the other side so the barrel and the body are perpendicular



Step 4: Fireing Method

Pull the bottom part of the trigger towards yourself ( i finnaly got a finished product pic, but its small)

    I was 11 when I first posted this instructable. Now I'm 20. My 11 year old self was so adorable and misunderstood. I wish I could go back in time and talk to him. I'm so different now. What motivated that little boy?

    have you heard of the be nice policy?

    oh srry thought you were talkkin to me

    This instructable was mostly to illustrate the principle behind a basic rubberband gun. When i first posted this i was like 11 and there was nothing about it on the internet, now there are some really badass ones.

    i think i may have dun it rong, it fires but iv only used 5 chopsticks, and the barrel seems to be completely asthetic because i dont use it at all in my loading/firing method

    its for strength, if you want to use smaller, thicker bands (more powerful) 1 chopstick there will eventually slide back.

    dude, this is friggin gey. any of u guys want a ruber band gun made of chopsticks comment me cuz i made like 50 of these. LOLZ. me friend made a balsa wood rubber band shotgun that shoots 4+ bands at once.

    you can make a shotgun based off this model.
