How to make a rubber band gun

Have you ever wanted to shoot something? But you can't get a bb gun or anything else? Well this rubber band gun is the one of many I have made. It is some-what simple and very cheap. You can have wars, target practice, and even shoot squirrels!! (my favorite)

Step 1: Parts and Tools

at least 4 in of dowel that is smaller than the thickness of the wood

Tools
 a scroll saw (can use a hand saw)
drill
drill bit the size of the dowel
wood glue

Step 2: Cutting the wood

Although you can't see the picture well, Draw a design like it and cut it out. Cut the dowel into quarters so you have four 1 inch pieces of dowel.

Step 4: Finishing

Let the glue dry fo a while and test it out. load the rubber band on the front peg and strech it to the one by the grip. When ready to fire flick the rubber band off. Respond back on how well your gun did and look for mere projects by me, Project_Builder!
