How to: Make a Double-Barreled Rubber Band Gun from Office Supplies

created at: 11/01/2011

I make routine visits to the hardware store. At least weekly, usually more. I'm at the craft store multiple times a month, and a regular at the fabric shop, art supply emporium, and every thrift store on the high street (Which, in my city, is actually called High St.)

He's the author of the new book, Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction 2: Build a Secret Agent Arsenal, released earlier this year. It's the sequel to Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction: Build Implements of Spitball Warfare, and the publisher, Chicago Review Press/IPG were gracious enough to share one the book's amazing project, a double barrel rubber band pistol, made from items you can find in your office supply drawer. Which, you should open now and get going!

It doesn't work very well. I suggest that you use dowel rods to make it longer. The tension on the rubber bands isn't enough to make them really fly.
