Step 1: Step 1: Make Barrel
Take two rubber bands and connect the two blue rods so that the slots on the ends of the rods make one straight line.
Step 2: Step 2: Attach Trigger
Take the clothespin, and open it, and slide it on to one of the rubber bands on the barrel as shown.
Step 3: Step 3: Add Launching System
Slip the last (and most powerful) rubber band into the slot opposite the trigger (clothespin).
Step 4: Step 4: Fire!
To load, open the clothespin, pull back the launching rubber band, and put the end of the launching rubber band into the clothespin. You must then put a Nerf dart onto the barrel as shown in the second picture. Push the legs of the clothespin together to fire. Do not fire at eyes or face.
