Shoots about 20 ft? (I have not tested the range) UPDATE: Shoots 30 ft - 35 ft. It also depends on your rubber bands.

Sorry, the pictures are a bit blurry. They were taken from an ipod touch.

Step 1: Parts

Step 2: Everything

Step 3: Ram and Banding

Step 4: Firing

Pull back the ram, then put a white rod in the barrel, and then take a picture!!

    It fires white rods. You pull back the ram then load a white rod through the front. Then take a picture just like a real camera.

    This build does not use orange cut pieces it uses ball joint pieces. You can use cut orange connectors. I use an exacto-knife to cut them.
    By the way you really need a strong small band for the mechanism.

    Tell me if it works!
