#324293 Philadelphia Winter Nerf War Dec 22nd DATE CHANGED TO DEC 22nd!

Posted by hoongfu on 09 December 2012 - 03:58 PM in Nerf Wars

I will be coming to this war... If any one has a stock, or very lightly modded Longshot they are looking to sell, I'll by it for 30 dollars. I need one in fairly good condition, for a friend of mine.


I have two, so you can choose yellow or blue. :)

#321464 Nerf Podcast

Posted by hoongfu on 08 September 2012 - 02:16 AM in General Nerf

Koree, Ted, and I got together a few hours ago to put together a podcast. We discussed a variety of topics new and current to the NIC, one of them MANL. There will be a post war recap podcast as well.

Podcast

Enjoy and stick around for the next podcast.

And look what I did immediately after. Its called "Plan B? How about Plan 'N' ".

And then what Koree did to what I did.

#321027 Philly War 9/1 Smedley Park

Posted by hoongfu on 25 August 2012 - 11:09 PM in Nerf Wars

Hey guys, with much regret I am canceling this war. There is not enough people going to justify it, especially with 1/3 of the people coming 3-4 hours away from CT. Hopefully next time we will get more confirmed attendees.

Its not every day you get to mod with Gears and Koree. The aftermath:

#320295 Magnetic Holsters for Nitefinders and other small blasters

Posted by hoongfu on 10 August 2012 - 12:35 PM in Modifications

Would these be big enough?

You would need more magnets to achieve the same strength as the big ones but I think it would be stronger overall. I actually bought those and compared them to the circular ones on my NF. They are a bit smaller but I think they will still be useful. Next time I need more magnets Im going for the bigger ones so I can attempt to magnetize bigger stuff, like the DCIT.



#320293 NJW9; A post-Apocalyptic war

Posted by hoongfu on 10 August 2012 - 12:19 PM in Nerf Wars

If the picnic pavilion is occupied, will we stay at Babbage? If not, can we come up with a plan ahead of time? Can anyone bring an easy-up?


Make sure you keep the tarps in your car this time.



#320289 Magnetic Holsters for Nitefinders and other small blasters

Posted by hoongfu on 10 August 2012 - 11:18 AM in Modifications

This would also be really great for HvZ instead of making integrations.


That is a great idea. You could also have custom integrations that are more forgiving if you mess up and can be adapted easier to each mission.

Time to magnetize my jolts and SSPBs!



#320284 Magnetic Holsters for Nitefinders and other small blasters

Posted by hoongfu on 10 August 2012 - 09:09 AM in Modifications

I used the hard drive magnets on some blasters a few years ago to allow them to hang from a sheet of steel that I screwed to the wall in my son's room. FYI, Magstrikes just slide all the way to the edge and fall on the floor. Even with three massive (1"x0.5") magnets. I imagine it would be similar on clothing.


You clearly need more magnets! On the serious side did you use 3.5" HD magnets or 2.5" HD magnets (desktop or laptop basically) And modern HD magnets are SUPER weak compared to old school ones.

How far away do you have to keep those from phones/credit cards/etc.?


I normally keep my valuables in the front pockets on my vest.



Protip: A flat surface with little to no slack in the fabric makes a better holster area. The more movement the holster is allowed the less secure the blaster is.



#320268 Magnetic Holsters for Nitefinders and other small blasters

Posted by hoongfu on 09 August 2012 - 11:51 PM in Modifications

China I mean Ebay also sells square magnets which may prove to be a better magnet because of the perfect alternating fit as opposed to "close enough" fit and the circular magnets are a pain to line up and keep them that way until e-putty is applied. Be patient during the eputty application step because if you rush the magnets might clump together and precious time is wasted meaning the eputty to set in more than you want before the magnets are aligned properly making this very difficult. This happened to the 4 magnet section on my NF.



#320246 Magnetic Holsters for Nitefinders and other small blasters

Posted by hoongfu on 09 August 2012 - 08:11 PM in Modifications

It's the best holster ever! It never falls off if set up properly. I've set it up improperly for 2 wars as for apoc I set it straight and it never failed. The magnets set in alternating order give the holster a perfect release and holstering. And when holstering if you hold the blaster close enough the magnets' attraction is strong enough to pull them together and set the blaster perfectly in the holster. It's the quickest and best no nonsense holster period. Bloody no tampon period.

Btw I'm wearing the black shorts in the picture.



#320206 Philly War 9/1 Smedley Park

Posted by hoongfu on 09 August 2012 - 08:05 AM in Nerf Wars

Shotgunned titans are fine if they have a stock OPRV. And if Koree or I see that its overpowered we will ask you to put it away.

#320019 Creating a NIC Biography

Posted by hoongfu on 06 August 2012 - 09:33 AM in Off Topic

The Articles section here is a great place to start.

Other items that should be investigated: Mag7, Four horsemen, Sex Dwarves, Canadians, Rainbow Clan, Captain Slug, Stefan (or whatever the username of the guy who invented the stefan), Rise/fall/and more recent resurgence of NJ wars, the SNAP, Rainbow catch, +bow, and Bow powered blasters.

Clearly the best way to cart around rockets.

I have perfected the way of the rocket.



#319785 Apoc Round Schedule and Signup

Posted by hoongfu on 03 August 2012 - 11:21 AM in Nerf Wars

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. Great thread guys.

So is 4TDM going to be only clan based, or is there going to be a full roster 4 TDM that isn't exclusive?



#319765 Apoc Round Schedule and Signup

Posted by hoongfu on 03 August 2012 - 09:52 AM in Nerf Wars

I would be very surprised if there is enough attendance to run 3 rounds at a time we've never really don't that successfully in the past.

Sitting out is an easy round to run.



#319732 NJW 8.5

Posted by hoongfu on 02 August 2012 - 09:42 PM in General Nerf

That's not fair you did have Hero and his shopping bag of rockets.

MY Rockets!

Man, I'm in the video and Im on my cellphone trying to figure out how to record on my gopro lol.



#319462 First annual Parabolic Toys contest!

Posted by hoongfu on 30 July 2012 - 01:12 PM in Homemades

In that case, I'm entering, but won't ask for a rocket until I start building. Also, how long do the barrels need to be?

8" more or less. More is better though so you have a little more clearance between the fins and the blaster/pump.



#319193 Nerf Glossary/Jargon File

Posted by hoongfu on 25 July 2012 - 01:48 PM in General Nerf

Optimal/Transition/Chicago barrel - barrel that has two sections; a shorter section with tight fit (normally 2-3" sch40 cpvc) connected to 9-10" of sch80 pvc. Most prominently used by the Rainbow Clan.

OPRV (Over Pressure Release Valve) - Found in most airguns, it releases excess air preventing the air from getting into the tank which potentially damages the tank over time and could cause the tank to rupture.

Checkvalve - a valve that allows air of a certain pressure in one direction only, commonly used in airguns and Ryan McNumbers rainbow pumps to prevent vacuum loading

Ryan McNumbers - Ryan201821

#K or AT#K (2,3,4) - AirTech 2000,3000,4000 respectively. Turreted airguns. 2k being the smallest with a manual rotation mech. 3k being the viewed as the best because of the dump valve size and has an auto rotation mechanism. 4k has the biggest turret and tank but supposedly the dump valve limits the ranges and it also has an auto rotation mechanism.


PAS (Pump Action Shotgun ) - An Ertl brand ball blaster that is adapted to shoot stefans

RFDG / RFSG (Rapid Fire Dart / Shot Gun) - An Ertl brand blaster with a 12 shot turret that shoots megas stock. Most famously used by Forsaken_Angel24 for the Doomsayer mod.

#319170 Hopper / RSCB Clip

Posted by hoongfu on 25 July 2012 - 08:38 AM in Darts and Barrels

BabyGhandi has hoppered over 30 quadshots (yes thats right, maybe even more now) and I believe he uses a [k26] in them.



#318566 NJW8.5

Posted by hoongfu on 16 July 2012 - 09:34 AM in Nerf Wars

Yeah, after an entire month of grassy fields with moderately sized evenly distributed trees, it will be nice to get back to a muddy field with moderately sized evenly distributed trees.

Looking forward to this. I promise I'll get the squeek out of my gun and the sand out of my vagina for this one.

Oh, and to the potential League players, bring you a-game, the captains are watching.

I heard the last field was an "ocean". But I do remember the swamp in the middle of the field after it rained, I ran straight through it during the VIP rounds to flank you guys.

I will definitely do my worst so I can rig the system. Friendly fire ftw! /sarcasm



#318542 NJW8.5

Aww yea, back to old hero-style NJNO stomping grounds. Im glad we are back to Babbage again. I missed this park so much.



#318228 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by hoongfu on 09 July 2012 - 12:48 PM in Homemades

DCIT variant made by ChaosPropel for me using an ERTL catch. I still need to add a barrel and RSCB clip and toss in a longer spring, but it catches great and the seal is optimal. Koree is holding it in this picture.

#317639 Apocalypse 2012

Posted by hoongfu on 28 June 2012 - 09:40 AM in Nerf Wars

Double Post!

Quick note about Sceptors since it seems like a ton of people are modding them like right this instant: I have 2 requirements for Sceptors at Apoc:

1.) Aside from the barrel mod and ergonomic changes to the pump handle, they must be bone stock
2.) Do something to that airtank cosmetically to make it look less like a paintball gun. This must be cosmetic only. Just throw some orange duct tape on there or something.

More info about blaster restrictions will be coming soon, but I can boil it down for you right now: if you want to be the guy at apoc who's gun shoots farther than everyone else's, stay the fuck home.


A few of us are discussing on BookFace about tank relocation (NOT replacement). Where do the rules stand on that? I like to assume that since its not mentioned explicitly that its legal, but the "bone stock" also could ban tank relocation as well.

#316989 NJW8 - The APOC pregame

Posted by hoongfu on 14 June 2012 - 11:32 PM in Nerf Wars

I'm considering doing a 2-barrel, pullback Speed loader round or two plus objectives based on that. No pump action, no air guns. Anything that can hit 90+ with a speed loader would probably be best.

Would anyone be apposed to this?

This sounds like classic nerf mode (something Koree keeps telling me about). I am totally down for this. Would breeches be allowed as well?

I guess you have to do it again next time to prove that it happened.
