About

How I got started

I have three active nephews (3, 5 and 7 years old) who love to play games where they use their imagination. They are always running around playing good guys and bad guys. I bought them the basic rubber band gun that was available. They couldn’t distinguish between them and soon they were fighting over them claiming that the other brother had stolen their gun. To solve the problem, we wrote their names on the guns, which was super tacky and not very cool looking. It occurred to me that painting them their favorite colors would be more fun, which got me to thinking that I could bring a new concept to the rubber band gun market by adding color. I also wanted to make sure that they were fun and safe for kids which played a big part in the design. I have always had a creative imagination and building things has been a part of my life. I am constantly looking at the world around me and asking, “How can I do this differently and make it better.” I decided to go to the drawing board and began sketching.

Very first rough scetch that started it all.

 Using CADD software, I began designing and came up with a really cool design (my nephews think they are).

 I quickly became a target for my nephews. Getting hit at close range on bare skin was very painful. I began to test different sizes of rubber bands. I found one that can go up to 25 feet accurately and still have an ouchless feel up close.

Targets

 What fun is shooting a rubber band gun without a target in mind? I made this easy by designing a set of three different mobile targets that can be placed anywhere. You will have a blast challenging your friends and testing your accuracy by placing these fun and interactive targets in locations throughout the room to create a real shooting gallery and let the fun begin.

The plan 

 Like a lot of small start-up businesses, I am working out of a garage where the laser cutting and manufacturing takes place. I have shipping materials and guidelines in place so that you will receive your gun in a timely manner. After all, you deserve to play with your gun as soon as possible.

 I plan on using the funds to further pay for equipment, streamline my manufacturing process, create new gun designs and targets, and let the rest of the world know about Ultrashooter. 

     I purchased I laser recently so when the project is funded I will be able to begin manufacturing and shipping right away. Bringing this rubber band gun to market is a dream of mine and I hope it will become part of yours too. If this project does not get funded a lot of kids and adults will miss out on the fun that Ultrashooter can bring to the day. 

Thank you very much for your support and I appreciate every one of you!

Product description 

This fun colorful gun is made from premium acrylic plastic and layered Baltic birch plywood. The layers of wood are pinned and glued together for safety and strength. It can handle whatever the kids throw at it. You can load 6 rubber bands quickly, fast and accurately shoot up to 25 feet. The finish is water based so it’s safe for kids and the environment. The gun is designed, manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A.

Risks and challenges

There is really no risk with this reward, the only "risk" would be the delivery dates although they should be VERY close to correct. I already have all the Materials and machines in place to complete orders so we can start production anytime. Once we hit the 5k mark we will begin production and ensure orders will be shipped in a timely manner after campaign ens.

Developing product is never easy. From design to production, there are pitfalls everywhere. While delays can happen due to unforeseen consequences, we will utilize our experience to navigate pass the obstacles and communicate with you in a timely fashion. Shipping, custom/duty/tax varies from country to country. We will do our best for selecting reputable shippers. Reward does not cover any type of tax, duty fee and charges related to clearing custom.

If you're reading this message that means you made it to the bottom of the campaign page and I want to say thank you for taking the time to see what I have been working on :)
