I can’t believe this isn’t the first time that a rubber band machine gun has been featured on this blog. Dammit. I wasn’t even aware that rubber band machine guns existed until I read this article at JapanProbe. One day I’ll be better than you boss *sniff*. Meanwhile let’s take a look at this homemade, not-so-new-news-at-technabob rubber band machine gun.
The gun can fire up to 200 rubber bands in rapid succession, and yes, reloading is a bitch. It was made by a certain Mr. Nakamura, who has actually written a book about making rubber band guns. Here he is showing off his gun to an extremely overjoyed old man:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIKwT60iat0
Mr. Nakamura is of course, a member of the Japan Rubber Band Gun Shooting Association. I’m not kidding:
If there’s any association worth joining, it’s that one. Of course the association’s name can also mean that members shoot at rubber band guns, but we’ve got video of Mr. Nakamura and his l33t rubber band gunnery:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjsU5J5UgQg
Want to make your own RBMG? Here’s Mr. Nakamura’s online guide. It’s in Japanese of course.
