  1. (continued from previous page)
    brother got a pattern of an old gun and cut out the board in the shape of a gun. I got a plane and my brother planed the board from which we made the gun. I got a file and I cut a bar out of the frame of an old bicycle for a barrel. I got a piece of rubber and tacked it on each side of the gun. I got a small piece of a stick and when I pulled the rubber I fired the stick through the barrel.
