You take a hold of the other end of the string and pull it slow or fast,depending on how fast you want the rubber bands to go.
I know that.But do you put the other end of the rubberband on the left or right side of the picture BEFORE you shoot?

The notches go all the way across the board.And letter d is where the rubber bands are stretched back to the notch that is closest to letter d.
