    Step 1: Take the Pen Apart

    Remove the cap, cartridge, the end cap, and the plastic piece covering the writing end of the cartridge.

    P.S.: You will only need the main tube and the cartridge. Discard the other plastic pieces.

    Step 2: Attach the Rubber Bands

    Hold one of the rubber bands on the top of the pen while wrapping the other all the way around it.

    Step 3: SHOOT!!!!

    Place the cartridge in the barrel and hold the end of the rubber band around it. Pull back and FIRE!!!

    P.S.: Please do not aim the pen gen at someone else's face. It could seriously injure them.
