Al Capone

Alphonse Gabriel "Al" Capone, born January 17, 1899 – January 25, 1947, was an American gangster who led a Prohibition-era crime syndicate. The Chicago Outfit, which subsequently also became known as the "Capones," was dedicated to smuggling and bootlegging liquor, and other illegal activities such as prostitution, in Chicago from the early 1920s to 1931.
Born in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City to Italian immigrants, Capone became involved with gang activity at a young age after being expelled from school at age 14. In his early twenties, he moved to Chicago to take advantage of a new opportunity to make money smuggling illegal alcoholic beverages into the city during Prohibition. He also engaged in various other criminal activities, including bribery of government figures and prostitution.
Despite his illegitimate occupation, Capone became a highly visible public figure. He made donations to various charitable endeavors using the money he made from his activities, and was viewed by many to be a "modern-day Robin Hood". Capone's public reputation was damaged in the wake of his supposed involvement in the 1929 Saint Valentine's Day Massacre, when seven rival gang members were executed.
Capone was convicted on federal charges of tax evasion in 1931 and sentenced to federal prison; he was released on parole in 1939. His incarceration included a term at the then-new Alcatraz federal prison. In the final years of Capone's life, he suffered mental and physical deterioration due to late-stage neurosyphilis, which he had contracted in his youth. On January 25, 1947, he died from cardiac arrest after suffering a stroke.
One of the most notorious American gangsters of the 20th century, Capone has been the subject of numerous articles, books, and films. Capone's personality and character have been used in fiction as a model for crime lords and criminal masterminds ever since his death. The stereotypical image of a mobster wearing a blue pinstriped suit and tilted fedora is based on photos of Capone. His accent, mannerisms, facial construction, physical stature, and parodies of his name have been used for numerous gangsters in comics, movies, music, and literature.

PLEASE NOTE:

It is assumed in all makeMZ Rubber Band Guns
that the end user will decide how thick they want
the  parts of the gun to be.
If you have a lower powered laser you can cut all parts from 3mm or 1/8th 
inch woods and glue them as shown in the assembly guides.
Or you can use thicker materials if you have a more powerful laser
or CNC router. It is important to note that if cutting with a CNC router you will need to sand and file certain parts of the guns to get proper fitting square corners on parts.
Also, the length and size of bolts and nuts used are your choice, although we recommend
4-40 machine screws with T-nuts for a flush finish and if using metric you will need to use the equivalent.
You will need a selection of rubber bands, small springs and small eyelets and hooks to
complete most of these projects. These items should all be available at your local hardware store.
You can easily change the hole size in the DXF using your CAD software but do not change the position of holes.
 You may also want to customize the guns stocks and handles using thicker exotic woods and sanding and engraving paths
The main trigger mechanisms and moving parts should be cut from 3mm or 1/8th
thick material in most cases.
