My K'nex RBG Machine Gun

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 my K'nex machine gun. It shoots 8 shots , and shoots rubber bands. It has a wheel that you can spin at your own pace, and if you shoot them all at the same time it can have a shot gun affect, where the bullets spread all over. So, if you prefer a slow machine gun, a fast one, or a shotgun, this will be perfect for you.
