My K'nex Pistol

About: I like video games a lot. Mostly guitar hero and rock band. I love the computer too. I like to go outside though. I'm not fat if that's what you were thinking.
This is the K'nex gun I built in a day or two. I did not copy any designs if that's what you were thinking.
It is not automatic but gives a crapload of power, since it is a slingshot type of gun instead of a ram.
