I was bored and wanted to make something so here it is. And bare with me this is my first instructable.Please feel free to use constructive criticism.

Step 1: Items You Will Need

You will need 2 green or black mini rods, 2 right angle connectors, 1 orange connector, 1 rubber band, 1 blue rod.

Step 2: Main Part

First connect the mini rods to the orange connector.

Step 3: Bowstring

Now cut the rubber band and tie each end to a red connector.

Step 4: Putting All Together and Firing

Connect the the main part to the right angle connectors. Put either a blue, orange, or a red rod into the orange connector hole pull back and release. Also feel free to copy and add to this design, but give me credit.
