I bought a rubberband gun!

Oh my gosh!! I forgot the joys of these little things! You all know what I'm talking about, wooden handle, little clicky rotary wheel, you put a rubberband on it, and rotate it and load up another one..

This is now banned in NYC right??

It's pathetic that there is a "firearm" I can own in Taiwan that I can't own in the NYC..

Every boy needs one; and every girl too!

A few year ago, I bought 2 for "my son" ;) at the county fair. He & I would make such a mess in the house! Good times!

I'm having too much fun with my real guns to be bothered by "rubberband" guns...

Bang is funner than Twang ..:D :neener: :D

I had a pair of nice rubber band guns. A friend got sick a few years ago so I gave her my band guns while she was in the hospital for several weeks. The staff were nice and let her shoot up the hospital every day. Helped her recover I think. :D

They're great for housefly & annoying cricket stalking.

He has me load it up and as soon as I hand it back to him the cats are runnin'. We made action targets by runing a string across the upper part of a box and paperclipping playing cards to the string.

Good fun.

Ok --post a link where to get one. I want one.

Besides the next time I crash my hardrive...well might be better to use rubber bands vs the 230 gr JHP I'd given thought to.

I want this one:neener:

Oh... rubberband guns actually use rubber bands as ammunition.
No wonder everybody says mouse guns are not effective for self defense. Who would get hurt having a mouse shot at you? :D :D :D

Those clippy black things that have the two folding arms, stick a playing card in it, and they stand up... And you can "go tactical" and place them around the room for some practice combat shooting..

hehehe... I love the toys.. Also, a lot more silent then the BB guns, and they don't ricochet..

I had a slingshot once when I was about 8 years old. I would shoot it and half the time things would hit the "goal posts" and come back and hit me in the head.....

I've always preferred throwing things instead...:D

Hey, I still have major league pitching aspirations :D

If I knew where mine was, I'd post a pic of my fly gun. It's a spring-loaded fly swatter on a string. You can knock them out of the air with it.

Anyway, don't put anybody's eye out.;)

Rubber band guns, the gateway drug of the gun culture.

Why next you might want a bb gun and after that a .22 and then .... :D

The gateway drug huh? true true, just ask my gf!

My name is twoblink, and I'm a gun-holic... I started out with the .22LR, and then I got hooked. I needed more and bigger, then there was the .40SW, then 7.62x39, then 308...
