When you offer a youthful boy a rubber band, it is probable he will attempt to get a method of tossing it to the other side of the room. The ones who are more imaginative will utilize resources such as Lego, popsicle sticks or clothespins to create a rubber band gun (a lot of us in Japan utilize disposable chopsticks).
And after maturing and obtaining each toy for grown kids, a number of them are going to create a weapon of rubber band guns (semi automatic) from stainless steel and aluminum.
ZumaA2 is a steel cabinet creator residing in Kanagawa Prefecture; in 2008 he started creating rubber guns by utilizing equipment and materials from his store.
Following the finalization of his initial gun Silver Wolf, whose motivation came from playing Metal Gear Solid 4, a Playstation3 game, he was visited by Japan Rubber Band Gun Shooting Association.
‘It changed my outlook of guns made from rubber band being simple toys formed to throw rubber bands.’ They stated the ones who want to take part in formal functions are evaluated in three classes including Manufacturing method, Marksmanship, Mental power.
The other day we had a chance to pay ZumaA2 a visit in Kanagawa, at his workshop. It amazed us to discover he creates each of his guns totally by hand, such as the Fenrir. This has a wooden grip which Zuma A2 carefully shapes and finishes himself for every order.
Rubber band guns are pistols which are semi-automatic which fire 10 to 12 rounds. A fully automatic submachine gun was also revealed to us which fires 30 rounds at a 1000rpm speed.
