Step 1: Pen Gun

Take apart the pens. you will no longer need the cap or tube only the ink and tip of the tube. The ink will become ammo. take the pen tube tip off the ink. You will need both parts.

Step 2: Assembly

Take the rubber band and cut it once.

The Pen Gun will shoot about 100+ feet. Yes I know that sounds scary. When you use a flat rubber band (The best ones in my opinion), a long ink with fletchings (6 or 7 inches, get a long pen form dollar store or fair) it will shoot that far. I shot to about 3 house down from mine.
IF you want to shoot at friends for fun, I recommend to take tape and wrap a thick layer around the tip so it WON'T puncture skin.

first of all, i just have to say I love these things! But the rubber band seamed to slip out. so i thought i should post a comment on how to fix it...it is so simple! 1 once you have the big rubber band on just rap some braces rubber bands over it. 2 when taping don't cut the extra rubber band off,and tape then fold extra down over taped portion and tape again.
You can avoid it sliding out by holding it differently, squeeze the device through the rubber band so it is completely in place.
