Bandit Guns

All ages will enjoy assembling and testing his or her shooting skills with a Bandit Gun made in USA. Each Bandit Gun component is laser cut from birch plywood to provide precision and durability. Easy to follow instructions make assembly fun and fast. Patent pending technology provides twin or triple action firing mode. Buy, build, and shoot for tons of flying rubber band fun.

"The Outlaw"

The Outlaw shotgun kit is 14 pieces of laser cut plywood stacked and held together with binding bolts (no glue required) to form an awesome one of a kind 9 shot rubber band shotgun kit with two methods of firing.

The 2 modes of firing:

  • "Single Shot" - Pump the actuator to launch a single shot
  • "Rapid Fire" - Pump the actuator as fast as possible to create a wall of rubber bands that nothing can escape.

"The Sheriff"

The Sheriff shotgun kit is 14 pieces of laser cut plywood stacked and held together with binding bolts (no glue required) to form an awesome one of a kind 10 shot rubber band shotgun kit with three methods of firing.

The 3 modes of shooting:

  • "Single Shot" - Pull the trigger to launch a single shot and pump the actuator back to reload the next rubber band
  • "Rapid Fire" - Hold the trigger back while pumping the actuator rapidly to launch an arsenal of rubber bands that nothing can escape.
  • "Shotgun Blast" - Pump the actuator until all rubber bands are at the top and then pull the trigger to fire a scattered blast of rubber bands that will knock over about anything.

The Story:

The idea of Bandit Guns was created when my three children Kelsey, Macy, and Bobby (now 14, 11, and 9 years old) came down in the wood shop while I was building a set of cabinets for a client. Excited, they asked me if I could help them make a rubber band gun. Remembering all the fun I had with my rubber band gun that my father made for me, I cut out three blocks of wood that somewhat looked like a gun and nailed a clothespin to the top with a notch on the front of the barrel for the rubber band to hook into. I showed them how to load it and fire at a piece of wood sitting at the end of the workbench. Bobby said,"Single shot, Dad? Boring, I want to make my own rubber band gun!" He knows he can't use the power tools so that got me to thinking about how I could create a kit that he could assemble and would make him feel as if he made it himself but, still cool enough that his friends would want one too. That was the beginning, after the first model having over 50 parts and not even working. Approximately 100 versions later the Bandit Gun was created with what you see today. Being a kid at heart, I probably use the Bandit Gun more than they do. Thanks for reading our story.
