Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: We don't think so. But if you'd like to send us a note full of your righteous indignation, please address it to [email protected].

In all seriousness, we think that Gun Bandit Rubber Band Shotgun promotes band violence. This could be a good thing considering the likes of... joke coming! ...One Direction.

Question: Is ammo included?

Answer: Yes! Each Gun Bandit includes a package containing approximately 100 rubber bands.

Question: Can I use any type of rubber band?

Answer: Sure. The recommended size is 1/16" thick and approximately 2 inches long. Please note that we do sell refill packs which include 100 rubber bands of the recommended size.

Question: Why are the included rubber bands colored green?

Answer: So they're easy to find!

Question: Will the Gun Bandit cause serious bodily harm?

Answer: There's no denying that a rubber band, if used improperly, could cause a bit of a sting. That being said, the amount of potential energy that can be stored in a rubber band before it will snap cannot be increased by the use of any rubber band gun.

Simply put, the Gun Bandit Rubber Band Gun can't fire a rubber band with any more force that you could do on your own with just your hands.

Question: Is this appropriate for the office?

Answer: It'd be inappropriate if you didn't have this at the office. So, buy, buy, buy!
