Instructables
Here is a Knex target that I have made. As far as I am aware nobody else has used an elastic band in the exact way I have. (Yes people have used elastic bands for targets but not 'exactly' in this way. It is held up and can easily knocked down by a low power knex gun, as well as the high power ones. It is very important that it is on a flat surface otherwise it doesnt work. Also, the length of elastic band is important. Here it is! Feel free to rate and comment!

1-2. Build this, closer View.
3-4.Build this, sorry for blurryness, different view.
5. Put yellow rod there.
6. Attach like this. Also put elastic band on where shown. You will probably need to experiment with the length of the elastic band, as I have.

Step 3: Top Half

1. Build these.
2. Attach as shown.
3-4. Now build these, attach as shown and put on the panels. (I had to use to triangular ones because I dont have one big panel.

i now don`t have to walk back to my target anymore or shoot my little brothers

5*
My gun once shot through a hole in the target. (Don't laugh, you sick minded fool.)

not strong enough, my gun shattered it.

Could you please be a bit more specific as to where it shattered?

Even though i have no use for a target right now, 3.5* because of the fact that it gets knocked down, then flips back up!

Very cool!
