Rubber band guns!

If you live in Provo, or ever go there, there is this amazingly wonderful place called Blickenstaff's! It's like a real life Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium!! Anyways, of course Cody and I just have a hay-day when we go in there, and we have to hold on tight to our moneys so that they don't get spent on every single thing in there! But, (this might be weird that I'm just now posting about this, but I was looking through iPhoto and found the pictures!!) we did splurge back in November and we got ourselves two rubber-band guns, rubber-bands (of course), and a couple packs of army men!

We set the poor suckers up on the staircase, and we did quite a good job, if I do say so myself! (I think my favorite one was the guy on top of the wood railing!) Some of them were very easy targets, while we also gave ourselves some challenging ones as well!

Then... we let loose! And holy crap, it's way harder than we thought it was going to be! And because all of the rubberbands weren't exact circles, they'd go left, or right, or pretty much anywhere except where you aimed!
They actually were so difficult, that my cousin Randy came in and started offering his version of help, which were playing cards that he'd fling over in the general direction of the staircase.. I'm not too sure how helpful it really was, but it was definitely funny! Also, we scared the crap out of my aunt's two dogs!! Should have seen how fast they ran out of the room once they realized that rubberbands were flying all over the room!

Now, just some words of advice.. If you plan on getting a rubberband gun that allows you to load up to 5 or 6 rubberbands at a time, REMEMBER that some, or many of them will go out of turn, or possibly even backwards. Cody got himself in the face at least 2 or 3 times!! I think I got my leg a good 5 or 6 times, and almost hit the dogs once or twice on accident! So beware! Dress in war clothing!

Also, watch out for Cody and I.. We got pretty dang good, and we're quite the threat now!
