Picture of 3: How to Load and Fire

this is a slightly tricky part, see pictures if confused.
to load:
put a rubber band BETWEEN the two pegs on the black double peg connecter, the other end goes around a knob on the knob gear. after this, pull the knob gear back with your thumb, kinda like a real gun.
to fire:
let go of the knob gear!
to find rubber band:


*ba dum ching*
if the rubber band wont fire, make sure of a few things.
1: make sure that your hand isnt under the knob gear.
2: make sure that the rubber band is BETWEEN the pegs, NOT IN THEM!
3: make sure that you didn't pull back too far.
4: make sure that it isnt stuck on anything.

only 1 con no trigger

you can somewhat consider your hand to be the trigger, actually. you wind up the gear to get ready to fire, and when you release your hand, it fires is the gear spind correctly.

yes but i like a real trigger so you can have more power behind it
