You should make another video of it in action, since the shooting sequences were quite short.

DIY ZE (author)diybomber8342016-02-11

I don't promote shooting animals, I personally made this for entertainment purposes only. but I guess if you had more rubber bands in assembly it could.

How about making a spring-powered (or however it's called) airsoft gun?

DIY ZE (author)AirbourneNation2016-01-21

yes could be a spring, but at the end it does the same thing. I guess it is possible to make it look more neat that way. thanks for advice. subscribe to my YouTube channel. DIY ZE I upload cool DIY projects every week.
