Knex Sharp Shooter

Here is my Blue Mullet Sharp Shooter! Its my favorite sniper rifle I've ever built, which is why it is posted in the forums. Its generic design makes for a strong body, barrel, and handle.

More specs: Shoots 35FT using three long rubberbands. Removable 8 round yellow rod magazine. Working safely, magazine release mechanism's. True trigger design. Removable scope, revealing bed sights.

Dalek Gun Toggle Shooter

I'm trying to make a Dalek gun that uses a toggle switch to push & pull the gun's shooter in & out. I made a simple toggle & the shooter only moves half an inch. I need some help to make a toggle with a gear system or extra levers to push out the shooter further.

making real web shooters ?

Well i have been searching the web for real tech like the movies. and i've always been a spidey fan unfortunately the web shooters don't exist. because no one knows about the fluid or the shooter  i got some idea's for the fluid i think  most people believe that there is glue in the mix but i think maybe liquid rubber would work as long as it's still liquid until it squirts out or like some kind of string to shoot out with it to stick to it to make it a solid web .and for a very important part of the shooter a small narrow nozzle  i'm not a science wiz so please give me some ideas  or comments.

what game is this?

I don't have much information about this game aside from a vague description, but if anyone recognizes this, please speak up. So... What I know about this game, is that it is a multiplayer "rail shooter" type game for the original playstation.  I remember that each player controlled a crosshair  and each crosshair had a special attack.  I remember the setting looking almost post-apocalyptic with destroyed buildings and tall skyscrapers.  If anyone has the remotest idea of what I'm talking about, speak up please. I'll make sure to check all of the games in this genre.

Rubberband gun shooter thing help

I'm new so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the  right area but i need help. I'm trying to make a rubber band gun shooter thing but sometimes when i try to let the rubber band go it gets stuck. I originally used a metal piece with three angles and now im using a old allen rench. Normally when pulled back i use my hand to keep it steady but since i needed to take the picture i used a nail (probably not the best thing to use when stretching a rubber band), but anyways i was wondering if anyone had an idea to make the rubber band  ball thing always go off? P.S.  need an idea for the wooden gun shape.

Light Gun Duck Shooter.. Gone?

Does anyone know why hand held light guns are not all that common..? I spent literally years as a child on the Master System (he he, that name still makes me laugh) playing light gun games like duck shooting etc... These guns were remarkably accurate and fun to play with!! So why did they go out of fashion? I mean c'mon I know they are available for SOME games but these are limited.... How could people not want a hand held weapons to make games such as halo more interactive... Is it that it is just to expensive for the general market, or is it true was it really the Master system?? P.S did anyone every finish "Alex the kid" the built in game?

K'nex Spider-man Web-Shooter

I made a k'nex Gun that does not require the power of a spring or rubberband; It's made purely out of k'nex. I didn't really know what to call it, but I got the idea after I noticed that when holding it, it looks like you're shooting webs like Spider-man. I got the idea when I was watching a History Channel program about historical assassinations, and a famous gun that was examined was a gun that shoots when you make a hand-shaking gesture. The k'nex gun shoots about 30 feet. It also has an auto-ejecting shell, but it's single shot. You also have to load the bullet in cartridges. Baed on the definition, do you Instructablers think that this would be a worthy Instructable, or should it stay as a forum? P.S. I'll have pictures of it up soon.

Need DIY Nerf-type weapons for Christmas - Ideas??

Our Christmas tradition starts at about 10 am with a rowdy war of some sort. Unfortunately, the Nerf company can't make an unbreakable item for overgrown boys. This year, we're going with DIY weaponry. The Marshmallow shooter is too tame, and the rubber band gun is too harsh. What other options are out there?
