My T.A.P (Tactical Assault Pistol) Knex Gun

Introduction: My T.A.P (Tactical Assault Pistol) Knex Gun

About: Obviously made a ridiculously juvenile screen name back in '09, but I'll attempt to make up for it. Republican, religious, and southern; your typical down-to-earth bigot. If we agree to disagree, we'll be fine.

This is the first pistol i have designed myself so suggestions would be good. The TAP is a very good pistol with a true trigger. 1 rubber band = about 5 feet in range depending on where you attatch it.

Pros: Sights, good handle, and good range

Cons:Sometimes need to ram ammo down the barrel

Ammo:Blue and Red rods work best

    When you put it in, you have to insert the white rod first, then snap it in. you turn it around

    Pull back the firing pin, shove your ammo into the front of the barrel, and pull the trigger.

    Not exactly an assault pistol, by todays standards anyway. However, I see you've made a simple trigger, that is new, and caught my eye, how well does it work?
