Step 1: THE MATERIAL GATHERING
These are all the materials needed to make this gun.This is my first instructable so please no critism and hope you enjoy making this gun!
8 popsicle sticks
Some rubberbands for ammo
Step 2: BODY ASSEMBLY!
Use some tape to make this,this will be you're first step for the body making.Don't be afraid to use so much tape,the more secure it is,the better. :)
Step 3: THE BODY KEEPS GETTING LONGER..
This will keep making our body longer so the tension in the rubberband will be greater that will result in greater distance!
Step 4: THE BODY KEEPS GETTING LONGER AND LONGER..
you will be making the gun stronger so don't complain about this please.. :)
P.S.Ignore the present box behid me. My baby sister did that thing.
Step 5: THE RUBBER BAND HOLDER.
cut a small dimple with the scissors on the part of the popsicle stick as shown in the image below.
Step 6: THE HANDLE OF THE GUN
now we will be making the handle of you're rubberband gun to make it easier to hold and aim the gun.
Use plenty of tape and copy the pictures.
steps for picture number one:tape two popsicle sticks diagonally so the tips of the popsicle sticks won't be level with each other.
steps for picture number two:put the handl inside the gap then use tape to secure it in to place.
if you've completed doing that,great!!!! you've finished the handle congratulations!!
Step 7: THE TRIGGER OF THE GUN!
if you've completed all the previous steps of the gun,great!! you're on the final stepo the gun!!! this part is very easy so you should have no trouble following the steps! :)
just use some tape to put the clothespin on,if you're having difficulties doing this,then you can use a hot glue gun or use a different kind of clothespin.
Step 8: FIRE AWAY!!
now that you've finished you can test out you're awesome rubberband gun!! first hook a rubber band on to the dip in front of the gun then pull it back and put it in to the clothesping. to fire,simply press the clothespin and watch the rubberband fly away! remeber,different materials will result in more impressive results so give you're self some time to modify it and match you're goal. please think onn following me on instructables. :)
