Introduction: How to Make a Simple Rubber Band Shooter

In this instructable I will show you how to make a simple yet effective rubber band shooter for 2 - 3 dollars. It is crude looking, but it works really well. This is my first instructable so please don't post any rude or mean comments.

Step 1: Supplies

You will need:

a clothespin
super glue
2 CD/DVD cases
rubber bands

Step 2: Glue Together the Components

Now apply glue to the edge of 1 cd case and stick both together.
Once it dries, glue the clothespin to the top, as shown in the picture.

Step 3: Use It!

Put one end of the rubber band into the clothespin and the other end on the edge of the cd case. Now to launch it, push down on the back of the clothespin and . . . ZING!!! That's your rubber band shooter!

    You may use a flatted broom handle. I use them 'cause they are more accurate, but you have to flat them and to put a nail into.

    oh yeah i should have thought of that

    the best thing to do, is go to an office store, and get one of those colapsible rulers for kids, the ones that have lockin hinges, and you can fold it and stick it in your pocket

    yeah, its cool but really nothing i haven't thought of by myself. Thanks for posting!
