Gorkem's sniper shoots 230 feet. Mine shoots 200 feet with 6 oversized rubberbands, doubled up.

therandomperson (author)2008-06-04

ive got 56 rubber bands on my gun but i dont know how far it shoots, but if it can get from one side of a multi-story car park to the other i think thats not far enough. It hits the wall at the end quite hard, ive been through 16 rods so far what have been snapped.

you know, people will like you better if you don't make fun of them. why do you do that? Why do you make fun of people? Is it because you have abusive parents, or does the anonymousness of the internet make you think that you can be mean and no one can do anything about it? Flagged.
