DIY Metal Rubber Band Gun Answered

This rubber band gun works just like the wooden ones you've probably seen. The difference is that this is made of metal, has a safety, and includes a flashlight and laser sight. OK, just a wee bit over the top, but impressive.

If I had made it? Sure. Forum posts are often for pointing out other cool things happening in the DIY world.

buy a cheap wooden one, then use the mechanisms inside it to make metal ones

I meant "draw" as in "pull the gun" - it would be great for scaring my classes.
