    @makeosaurus, You have to pull the rubber band back and hook it into the L-shaped piece. Then put the arrow (beam) into the groove at the center. And then pull the trigger!

    Do you have a list of the names of each piece?

    Thanks for your interest in my project! The parts used are listed in the picture in Step 1. However, I am sorry I don't have the names ready.

    It depends on the rubberband you use. If you use a small, highly elastic one, it will shoot quite hard.

    Such a cool design!

    It worked better than I expected so I put a heap of rubber bands on it and it shoots so far!
