How To: Make a DIY Rubber Band Rifle

created at: 01/24/2011

I have a bit of a conundrum: I’m really uncomfortable with guns. I only shot one once, when I was 23, at a friend’s farm. With all the proper safety precautions, he taught me a bit about shooting clay pigeons, launched one into the air, and I actually hit it.

And that was enough. I never want to shoot, or even touch, a gun again. 

And yet, I love to throw, fling, and launch stuff at my friends. Weird, huh?

My pal Rebekah Greiman whipped these DIY rubberband rifles en masse to give to her male friends and family for Christmas. And, while we respectively disagree that “Weaponry…the bigger, the better.” is something that all men love, we get that creating original gifts to empower your loved ones to have fun is about as good as it can get.
