Stretching a rubber band across your thumb and forefinger is a perfectly acceptable manner of firing elastic projectiles — in a pinch. To be truly prepared for the onset of an office supply shootout, get one of these.
The 1911 served as the standard-issue sidearm of the US Military for 75 years and this solid maple replica is just as trusty, if a bit less lethal. Made by Elastic Precision, makers of a fine arsenal of rubber band shooters, the 1911 loads six rubber bands at a time and fires all six in rapid succession. Just so you’re never standing there without bullets, the 1911 comes with 100 rubber bands. Stow it in your desk at the office and be eternally prepared when cubicle warfare breaks out. – $40
