Fast Flyer method

This guy told me he used to roll his flyers up with rubber bands and use a fishing pole to sling them out the window of the car all the way to the porch! He said some people used a sort of air gun to shoot them out, but he couldn't get that idea to work, so he used the pole. It sounds kind of crazy but he said he could do 3000 flyers on the weekend this way. Anybody else tried methods like this?

I feel that he is pulling your leg as well...I dare him to try the air gun method here, he would be locked up so fast.

The fishing pole (with eyelets removed) or flexible rod will work, but you won't/can't get any kind of accuracy out of it, paper will just go where it wants. Doubt very much it would make it all the way to a porch.

I could never understand why a company that wants to get business keeping your yard clean would advertise by littering it.
