So, oodalumps made this thing he calls 'Not a Rectangle'. I call mine 'The Untangle'. What ooda did was at a little piece at the front to stop the pin from going to far. Now you can put as many bands on as you want without fear that your gun will explode. Ooda put 8. I put 10. I shot a red rod at a piece of 1/4" pine. The rod won. Everyone go build it. Don't aim it at drywall or loved ones. Don't shoot oodammo at hard targets. Have fun.

Video:
Red rod through 1/4" wood.

A side note: This is not quality wood. It is cheap pine. I didn't really want to waste a good piece of wood, but, given my curiosity, I might just try shooting oak or something similar. Only damage to the gun that resulted from this was the very front piece popped off of the green rod it was supposed to be attached to. The gun was still operable and it only took twenty seconds to fix.
 
 
 
 
 
ho far do it shoot with fins and 10 rubberbands?
that is a trifle with no turret.
Wrong.&nbsp;That looks like a TR with no turret. This uses the same body A) because it is a relatively sturdy and simple design and B)&nbsp;because it is what ooda already had built. Ooda build this in a day or two. It has a different front that disperses the impact of the pin. Try putting 10 bands on your TR&nbsp;and tell me what happens. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
heh i but 10 #64s on my tr8 and my black rod broke
hahahaha.
Actually happened, true story bro.
i did, it smacked the turret piece off, but it still worked.
If it broke, it did not work. Go follow the link I&nbsp;posted and actually look at it. You will notice multiple differences.<br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
i know, i built it. but it would have still worked had it not had a turret on, i hoped you would've figured that out for yourself.
Take off the turret and try again on a standard TR. The force of 10 #64's will break the body of your TR. In this gun, the force is dispersed towards the front of the gun, so that the body doesn't get damaged. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
no, tried it it was just fine.
The point is, it is not a trifle without a turret<br />
It works though.
No it isn't. You see, I was there, and I took that picture, and I can tell you that it is not behind the wood. Well, not &quot;behind&quot; as you mean it. It is technically behind half of the wood, and in front of the other half. This would be because it went through the wood. <br><br>And again, I implore you, watch the video. It has a better angle than the one I took the picture with. <br><br>Here, I'll link you directly in case you didn't catch that orange text signifies a link.<br><br>http://tinypic.com/usermedia.php?uo=f%2BydX%2FAT8aXlTmdBnpR054h4l5k2TGxc
Do you know how to watch a video? Also, 'throw' has an entirely different pronunciation and meaning than 'through'.
Hey bro..Watch the video.<br />
&nbsp;hey bro.. look at the second pic.
Let's say this picture is fake. What would the point be in faking it? It's not even his own gun.&nbsp;
because that would show he has an object of mass power, and he is showing how awsome it is, and he is, because he has it. I&nbsp;deleted the comment, and I&nbsp;watched the video after making the comment.
You're funny. If I&nbsp;were to show that I had an object of anything approaching 'mass power', I'd link to <a href="http://tinypic.com/usermedia.php?uo=7vBB%2FOG64CqCcN3rx5%2BEnoh4l5k2TGxc" rel="nofollow">this</a>. You see,&nbsp;I'm from America. And in America, we don't have an oppressive government (yet) that disallows us the right to keep and bear arms. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
Bleh. You have to use your middle mouse button to view the proper link. Or you could try this:<br /> <a href="http://tinypic.com/usermedia.php?uo=7vBB%2FOG64CqCcN3rx5%2BEnoh4l5k2TGxc" rel="nofollow">tinypic.com/usermedia.php</a><br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
Even if the second picture was fake we still have a video of it shooting through wood.
okay, but I&nbsp;watched the video after posting the comment. I&nbsp;didnt read it which was stupid, and I screwed up, so I&nbsp;deleted the comment.
hey bro..Watch the video and get it into your head, or, get your own wood and shoot through it and stop bitching that its fake.<br />
okay look I&nbsp;screwed up, and just have a look at the second pic. I&nbsp;made that comment b4 I&nbsp;watched the vid.
not fake. if the thing shot that far, it would shoot thru the wood.
&nbsp;frikin hell, look at the second pic. that is fake.
well, ya the second pic is definitley fake.
No it isn't. How could you ignore the video? It shot right through and stuck. He just took pics of it after.<br />
wheres the vid<br />
The link is right in the topic.<br />
Hey Ooda do you mind if i post instructions for it for those who cant build it?
why r u asking me???
{sarcasm}Oh im sorry i didnt know your profile name was oodalumps.{/sarcasm}
im confused
OH god how stupid are you? Its oodalumps gun ok? I was asking HIM if i can post it.
but you replied to me! not him!
No HE posted a comment and i replied to it which aparently you replied to and thought it was to you it warns those of you who have replied to the thread.
o
If you post them on KI.<br />
Ok! I will try.
Even if the second picture was fake we still have a video of it shooting through wood.<br />
I'm sorry, but... It's not. This gun has 10&nbsp;rubberbands on it. Most guns have 1 or 2. If you add any more on another gun, it would break apart.&nbsp;I know it sounds hard to belive, but it's real.<br /> <br /> Oh, and btw, you can't flag an instructable if it is &quot;not real&quot;.
&nbsp;I noticed I couldn't. but look at the second picture, it is OBVIOUSLY edited in. the wood is out of focus, but the knex piece is in focus.
<p>No your wrong try building one before you go and call stuff that isnt true.</p>
I&nbsp;screwed up, I&nbsp;deleted the comment. why is it that I&nbsp;keep stuffing up. It happens at school, it happens on my bike, and now I&nbsp;even managed to stuff up on a chat website.<br /> I&nbsp;failed.
Have you heard of depth of field?&nbsp;I&nbsp;would suggest getting some experience in what you are talking about before you call BS&nbsp;on someone else.<br /> <br /> For that particular picture (most of my pictures, actually)&nbsp;I had macro- focus on. Macro- focus is a setting found on most current cameras. It is pretty much auto- focus, but you are telling the camera that the object you are photographing is closer to the lens than, say, a family portrait would be. In order to do this, the depth of field is significantly smaller than it would otherwise be, meaning that only part of the picture is in focus. You should use macro- focus for almost anything you do with knex. You need it when you're photographing handguns as well, but being a twelve-year-old from Australia, I&nbsp;can't imagine that you'd have any experience whatsoever with handguns. It's a shame, really. They're quite fun. <br /> <br /> You, however, have probably never heard of macro- focus and have just skipped over the previous paragraph entirely. No matter, the webcam you use for your pictures probably lacks any sort of macro- focus. <br /> <br /> Also, I&nbsp;would like to wonder how one would go about using special effects to make it appear as though I&nbsp;shot a red rod through a bit of wood. <br /> <br /> Here's a picture demonstrating depth of field. As you can see, the &quot;three&quot;&nbsp;on my Molnija watch is in focus, while the watch's hands, box of matches, and pad of legal paper are not. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
How is it fake when there was a VIDEO&nbsp;of it shooting through wood?<br />
&nbsp;well either there is special effects. or, no or, look at the second picture, that piece has obviously been edited in.
&nbsp;<br /> Test it. Or at least watch the video, eh?&nbsp;How would I&nbsp;have faked it? I took some knex, I took a 1/4&quot;&nbsp;piece of crap bit of wood, and I used ten #64 rubber bands to put some of the knex through the wood.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> I respectfully request that you bring some sort of evidence, any evidence, that this is faked. Otherwise I am going to have to flag your comment. I'm pretty sure that making libelous statements against members of this site (who actually comply with COPPA *hint hint*) is never appropriate. <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
