well its imbossible to KILL some one with a rbg unless u smack them in the groin with the rbg gun itself or atach a fnife to it. BUT if your just talking about hurting the person then yes.

YES if the gun goes wrong. I had a rubber band gun that my cousin wanted me to shoot him with. so i shot him but the band somehow cut in half and stuck on the barrel so i got literally WHIPPED by it.

That depends on how long the barrel is, the type of trigger design, and the type of rubber band you are using, most of the time, its pretty harmless with just a slight stinging pain. Just don't aim for the eyes or any sensitive areas.

being someone who designs them, posts them and uses them almost every day, I can say that they that they have a possibility for severe injury, like if you get shot in the mouth and eat the band. Also a rbg could catastrophically fail causing splinters, pieces, or plastic to go all over, possibly lodging in the skin or in the eye. Compared to a real gun, they are like having a pillow fight with the "redman suit" from Mythbusters.

true, but what if that freak 1 in a milion shot goes right into your open mouth as you are laughing at your friend you just shot. (as he/she flinched hitting their head)

you could club someone with it, take an eye out (some) have people choke on bands, and have (weak) designs explode and send pieces flying everywhere. so in my opinion they are as harmeless as most things but less harmful than rod firing guns. so i would say they are slightly harmful.

realtively, they are safe compared to a rod gun. mainly for the reason that a rod shooting gun is hurling a solid projectile at a great force, where as a rubberband with not nearly as much mass will not be lethal for the fact that is doesn't have enought solidity or force to inflict pain. think of it this way, when you are hit with a rubberband, it just forms a shapre around the impacted region, wheras with a solid object, there is no elasticy, so you are hit with full force, no cushioning. hope that answers your question. Good luck!

Rod guns are more dangerous than an rbg.

They are just about harmless in the sense that it would be really hard to break a window, or knock a glass of water off your counter. They are not harmless in the sense that they sting at close range. So it depends on what scenario you are in...

You might impale someone on the gun - its not totally harmless....:D for the sake of telling your mother you should have one because they're 'safe' yes.

. Not harmless but, other than eye injuries (easily protected against with glasses/goggles), fairly safe.
