Stick ‘em up! We all remember these contraptions from school, maybe you were even unlucky enough to be hit with one. Well now’s your chance to own the best of the bunch.

A fiendish pipe dream known as the Bandit Gun looks to be moving towards reality, after its creator received $20,000 more pledges on funding platform than the $5000 he was seeking to move into production.

The Bandit Gun is a DIY, easy-to-assemble rubber band gun that can fire single bands, multiple bands in rapid succession, or all the bands at once, creating a hell-storm of potential pain.

Kansas City based creator Bob Coulston describes the genesis of the gun:”The idea of Bandit Guns was created when my three children asked me if I could help them make a rubber band gun.

“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. “My son said to me,’Single shot, Dad? Boring, I want to make my own rubber band gun!’

“That got me 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 approximately 100 versions later the Bandit Gun was created.
