I still wrestle around with my brother a little, my dad is too old, but my sister's husband is open season year round. Welcome to the family!!!!

Never shot my brother but I did hit him over the head with a shovel. That might explain some things...

In reference to the OP...............how old are you?? They didn't have cool stuff like that when I was a kid. The closest thing we had to a multilple shot rubberband gun was the equivalent of a double barrel shotgun and you literally had "2" shots, then reload. Anything beyond that was home-made.

I hope so. I don't see why they wouldn't be.

Nice story, Austin!

Funny one, JFirecops.

As a kid, we often had those wood "machine guns" with the toothed gear and clapper....you'd rotate the handle as fast as you can, creating such a Godawful racket, but me and my two brothers didn't care! The noise was cool! Drove Mom and Dad up the wall with that rapid-fire "clack-clack-clack,you're dead! I shot you. Clack-clack-clack-clack-I shot you first! No, you didn't-clack-clack-clack-clack!".

Then we graduated to rubberband guns, vague pistol shapes with the pinned plastic wheel that let you load a dozen or more rubber bands at a time, and do rapid-fire semi-auto! Unfortunately, I was the middle of 3 boys, and guess who was the most common target? I tried everything from hiding their rubber bands to cutting them, no go. Until I discovered the unique (and pretty frikkin' hilarious) combination of Vicks vaporub and underwear <evil grin>. Never got hit by a rubber band again

You know, thinking about it now, when we went to the rubber band launchers, I recall we were somewhat disappointed that it did not make the racket that our previous "guns" did. It was somewhat of a letdown. Solution? Shoot rubber bands at things that'll clatter and make noise!

I once made a slightly different rubber band gun that would very easily go "full auto".
It was a simple wooden yardstick.
At the front you stapled a strip of cloth long enough to reach the back of the stick
Below where you stapled that, you cut a V-notch in the "nose" of the stick.
Then you would cut notches about every inch from around 10" on up to around 20"
(the notches are on the "top" edge of the stick.)
Now pull the cloth over the stick, covering the notches.
In the V-notch at the front of the yardstick put one end of a rubber band. Stretch it back to the first notch (closest to the front) you cut in the stick. Place it over the fabric and down into the notch.
Continue loading rubber bands -- in the front notch, stretch back, into the next notch on top.

Now the fun starts!

Pull the strip of cloth backwards. As you pull, it forces the last (farthest back) rubber band up out of its notch and it fires. If you pull slowly, you get one rubber band at a time.

But if you yank that strip of cloth --- FULL AUTO!!!
