New True Semi Auto Answered

Here is Wikipedia's Description of something being Semi-Automatic:

A semi-automatic pistol functions by using the energy from the recoil of a single round of ammunition to extract and eject a fired cartridge from the pistol's chamber and load an unfired round from a magazine into the chamber for the next shot.

Therefore it is impossible to have a true semi-automatic K'nex Weapon. The closest we can get would be the equivalent of strapping multiple guns together. If this is semi-automatic, then a double barreled shotgun must also be considered Semi-automatic.

Well whatever. Like I said in the other instructable, it performs like one after a lot of preloading; so it's close enough.
