    kewl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    is is a pain to load if you use medium rubber bands.

    why does it matter if its a machine gun or a gatling gun, if u dont have to cock it each time, its a machine gun, so a gat is a machine gun

    works but add air soft bbs to make them spread like a shot gun

    technically the romans made the first machine gun they had a ballista which loaded and cocked itself back just like a machine gun so they really made the first machine gun

    no i read it in a book about romans then when i looked back at the book i can never find the part that tells about it but i no the book said it
