    Did your inspiration for the Pump Action Pencil Shooter (and sooner the Massacre Master) come from this Mythbusters-Medeival Mayhem Invention?<br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9DvdKvdoViI" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br>The Arrow Machinegun! I find the mechanichs very similar on both weapons. Its a bit simplified (And that way less misfiring) system for the Pencil shooter. <br><br>And why dont make another your next artillery slingshot a big pump action, spear shooting slingshotcrossbow? (Like a mixture between the cannon and the Massacre Master) It would be more effective and a lot faster in comparison to your first piece of slingshot artillery, the cannon. (I know it takes a lot of time, space and money to make those as-big-as-a-car-weapons, but if you got a week off when you dont know what to do...)<br><br>Thanks in advance for answering my questions <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>Cheers

    And another question: How does rubbergloves and condoms shoot in comparison to Thera Bands/ Office Rubber/ Inner Tubing, that you tested before? You have used both materials for slingshots before...

    Actually, I was inspired by the Chinese Shu-Ko-Nu repeating crossbow, just adapted it for rubber and also for the (superior) pump action. <br><br>But I saw that episode too!<br><br>Tobias and I plan to make a conversion kit that allows the cannon to fire the Assegai. That should be fun!<br><br>Rubbergloves and condoms are very high quality rubber types, but making a band from them isn't easy. They are strangely shaped, and (in the case of condoms) slippery and kind of smelly.

    The Pump action method looks way more accurate than a lever, thats for sure.<br><br>I cant wait for the Assegai-cannon video!<br><br>Thanks for answering my questions!
