Hey everyone,

For a while now I have been admiring the videos of rufus hussey on youtube, WOW is he a great man and an AMAZING shooter! It has inspired me to search around looking at how he makes his 'beanshooters' and what he uses as bands etc.

I have found this website which may not be "perfect" but in my mind, is a very useful piece of information!

I am going to be making a rufus hussey style beanshooter, the way he would have made one.
(Pictures to follow)

Cheers Luke

That's a good site, there is one vid on youtube that gives a fairly good look at his band attachment method. I try to find it again and post the link..

Looking forward to the result!

I wonder if "gum rubber" is the same as what they make oversized office bands out of like 107's?
I suppose I could probably go to a popular search engine and find out...LOL.

Keep us posted.

Yes and no, the quality between 107's and Flatband's gum rubber bands is quite different

Good luck with your Rufus shooter. I'm a real fan of that style of band attachement, be it whatever band you decide
to go with. One of the main advantages I've found is no hand slap.

Nice job, I like the look for the wood, and it looks like a beanshooter!
