I made this design after I built the 7 shot pistol by oodalumps. it fires 30+ feet with a few rubberbands. it fires 12 blue rods, one each time you pull back the firing pin and pull the trigger.it's my first instructable, so please be nice.
16 grey (one joint)
14 Y shaped pieces
1 ball joint
7 blue washers
3 grey washers (or 9 washers)
atleast 2 rubber bands
ps, sorry about the dodgy pictures
