    So basically, this is a tutorial showing how to cause pain and destruction with normal rubber bands. Sounds fun right? This tutorial will go over some ways of holstering the rubber bands, and some other techniques. Rubber bands can Often bought at any stores, I prefer 3 pound boxes from Sam's Club. Enjoy.




    Part 1: The Pistol

    This is the quickest set up to do. Very average range and it isn't as accurate. I will go over the basic ways of setting this up, Then show another step on which you can make it much more powerful, and accurate. All in all, we will be making this.



    The pistol can be changed into a semi automatic, But we'll get into that later. As for now choose your rubber-band. I prefer smaller more thinner rubber bands. But thick ones do just fine.



    Step One

    Take the rubber band, and loop it around your pinky.

    Step Two

    Take the other end of the band and pull it.

    Step Three

    Loop it around the back of your hand, It should wrap somewhat around your thumb.

    Step Four

    Pull the end of the rubber-band and rest on your index finger's tip.

    CONGRATS. You have just done the simplest method of rubber band shooting. To fire just let the rubber band slip off your pinky.

    Now you can change this into a semi-automatic pistol by just adding more rubber bands to your fingers like so.



    Remember always to loop the rubber bands top to bottom like so.



    And to fire you do the same as the normal pistol, You just let it slide off your hook finger.


    Part 1.2

    Now with a few more steps you can change a normal pistol into my favorite set-up.

    Step One
    Make the outcome of Part 1. Now take your pinky.



    Step Two
    Now take the end of the band from you pinky without letting it go from your index.


    Step Three
    Pull the band as far as it can go up your fore arm.


    Just point and let go. This is one of the most powerful and accurate methods of shooting.


    Part 2: The Bazooka!

    This method can inflict major amounts of pain and may even puncture skin.
    For this you need a somewhat thicker rubber-band, and a pen or pencil.


    Step One

    Take your rubber band and insert your thumb and finger inside.


    Step Two

    Insert pen.



    Step 3
    Pull back and let go.

    Do this right and you can get this method of shooting in a contained manner.

    Part 3: Wasps!

    Section one: Paper wasps

    Paper wasps come in many sizes and shape. I find the best by cutting paper into sections of 4 inchs(length) and .7th of an inch for width. A paper wasp is exactly as it sounds. A peice of paper that you fold and shoot from a rubber band to make a sting that feels like a wasp.(ah dhur)

    Step one

    Take a piece of paper and cut 4 inches for the length and .7.


    Step two

    Keep fold it four times, like so.





    Step Three

    You can holster the wasp into the rubber band like so.


    Tada, now mass produce these and shoot people.

    Section Two: Metal wasps

    Metal wasps are well, The metal version of a paper wasp. I can assure you these hurt more and travel faster than paperwasps. Metal wasps are paper clips folded into a different pattern.



    We will make this.


    Step one
    Get a paper clip. Turn it sideways and fold it like so.



    Step Two
    Countine folding it out. Slow though, you don't wanna break it.


    *Optional*
    Create a grip by folding out one end like this.


    Step Three
    Straighten it out. If you don't then it'll backfire and you'll feel like a dumbass.


    Step Four

    Hoster like so.

    When you want to fire just let go.

    Have fun guys, I spent in excess of 4 hours on this.

    Thanks , My freind and I showed a couple people at our school how to make paper wasps at the end of the year. The shit went full blown. We were never found to be the original people who started it. Of course, We're not gunna show a bunch of idiots how to use the metal ones tho. Nor any exsplosive concoctions. Also, if anyone hurts them selves I take no responsibility for it. 'kay?

    I've made all of them before, still, it's a good guide.

    I hate Hornets (We call them Hornets, not wasps.). Last year I was being pelted by them in line to S.S., one dick even put staples in his. So, I walk out of line, covering my eyes, and the teacher looks at me and asks, "Son, is there any reason you're out here?" in this really ****ing hateful tone. I tell her I'm being shot at and she's like "Oh suck it up, child." **** her.

    Why did I lol at that?

    Anyway, I knew how to do these apart from the metal wasps. Good tutorial
    Though it was not a great to how for some. We really aspired to include hills over this to be. Why would shall never know? Of course!

    Thanks, The hornets/wasps hurt. I'd rather be hit by paper hornets rather than metal. Even worse if the crossbreed of the two.



    Red are the staples
    Black the paper.
    That set up is my fave. The shit hurts loads when it works. *looks at legs prong marks* D:.
