. Rumor has it that most of the K'nex-related sites do not allow weapons. A few K'nexers found this site and it avalanched.

depends where he got it from. If he got it from ebay, he has a ton of parts. If he got it from a toy store or knex industires, he may only get half as many.

100 Feet!?! The youtube video doesn't suggest that cause it doesn't look like it gets 100 feet range.

Knex has been around here since the birth of instructables, There are so many because instructables is probally one of the best places to post them, also many people enjoy building with knex, So they post their projects here.

Because people will always have a good gun design and this is the only place to post it that I know of. I myself work on a handful of knex handguns, but haven't created an instructable yet.

there are so many, because knex is an easy way to make something relatively usefull, quite quickly. it is also easy to think of new ideas and also its easy to copy someone else - that is where the instructables started spreading (killerK's pistol). also plasmana's answer could be a reason - you can make something, make an 'ible then remake it afterwards.

Often, when people creates things, they want to show it to everybody before they have to destroy it... That is my guess.

Knex is a really good product, and without it, ibles would not be as good as it is today.
