    this is pretty cool!

    It's a good instructable, but you should say to use a short rubber band and a long paper clip. Like this

    use a loom band with a big paper clip it goes 10-30 meters depending on the size of the paperclip

    sucks you didnt even have to post the instructable(Im not a troll)

    and btw like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     Sorry, but your pics are blurry, and it is so simple , no one needs to be a member to view all steps on one page. Try using a macro setting on your camera (if it has one), and use this as ammunition for a semi-auto gun or something. This has a lot of potential; I used it on a paper airplane.

    did this really get over 10000 views?
