Hey, I'm Wyo_Daniel, I put up this MOC page to display my work from the last few years, and, hopefully, interact with other

My specialty is working Lego guns, powered by rubber bands.
My Lego guns differ from other people's Lego guns in several ways.
The first and foremost is this : While most people are out there making guns that fire rubber bands or paper pellets, or something like that, I remain a "purist". I make guns that fire actual Lego bullets. My bullets are standard 1x1 bricks, stacked on top of each other. I have made guns that fired from 1 lego to 4 Legos, all stacked on top of each other to make a much longer bullet.
Now, I'm not dissing the guns that shoot rubber bands; they're still pretty cool, and they're probably more power than I'll be able to make my guns for a long time to come.
The Lego chaingun in particular is pretty awesome; props to Sebastian for making it.
But think reload time.
Which is a more realistic loading procedure?
Stretching a rubberband back and hooking it on a gear, or flipping open a chamber, slapping a shell in, and flipping the chamber shut?
The ammo I use is a lot more plentiful and more versatile.
So my guns are superior to quite a few other Lego guns in terms of firing effiency and realism.
And I intend to keep working on my designs until there is nothing left to do to improve them.
Another important difference between my designs and a lot of other designs I have seen out there is that my bullets are locked into place.
There is no sliding around insdie the gun, there is no falling out if you point the gun straight down.
The guns I made years ago were like that, but a major breakthrough early in 2006 changed that forever.
One thing I have not been able to attain in working Lego guns is a good look.
Most of my designs are barely recognizable as guns.
However, most of the Lego guns out there that really work well also look like crap, and most of the designs that really look awesome and realistic don't shoot a thing.
So I take comfort in the fact that there aren't many designers at all who can combine good looks and good shooting.
So please, look around the site, check out the stuff I've built.
