#359113 Paging Langley

Posted by Pineapplepies on 08 April 2017 - 07:57 PM in Off Topic

He hasn't suspended me for the semester, so I don't know.

Interesting, slug do you know anything

Kinda miss all the funny screenshots I got from him like the classic translation

Edit:I'm getting march 27th as when he was last active so huh I don't know



#359110 Paging Langley

Posted by Pineapplepies on 08 April 2017 - 07:30 PM in Off Topic

Does Langley even exist anymore, I have noted an absence of the all loved and hated Langley



#359059 PSA $5 recon mk2s

Posted by Pineapplepies on 06 April 2017 - 10:42 AM in General Nerf

https://www.amazon.c...words=recon mk2
Already picked up 2
Good for super stock springers builds. I plan on using them for homemade pump action with internal mods. Write up coming soon.

Are there actually only 4 left or is there a limit per person




#359117 Spring issues

Posted by Pineapplepies on 08 April 2017 - 08:49 PM in Modifications

Okay, it's been a while.
While my limited access to the site has been a drawback, it has t stopped me from participating in the hobby!
I recently got hold of an old BuzzBee tek6, and I really liked the spring in it as opposed to the one in my EAT. While it fits nicely, I ran into some mechanical drawbacks.
The spring is a little short.
We all know very well that dead space is bad (cough cough reverse plunger)
But the spring is more than dead space. I'm only getting 5/8 of the power I can get out of it, and it seems to be grinding against my plunger rod a little bit too.
I need to make a spacer piece somehow, can somebody point me in the right direction?
I don't feel like buying a new spring, and that's not gonna happen for a while.

Do you have a dremel or any sort of tools? I would recommend just making a spacer like you said, I mean you could just find multiple circle shaped objects and glue them together. I believe unlike what slug said you could actually do it without buying a spring, it may be slightly homemade though.



#356992 Imr batteries and charger

Posted by Pineapplepies on 02 December 2016 - 04:42 PM in General Nerf

Title should explain what I'm asking about, but can someone please link me some 14500 imr batteries and a charger? Cheap would be preferable, along with it being on amazon if possible, but whatever works is best.




#360130 Chest rig question

Posted by Pineapplepies on 26 May 2017 - 01:25 PM in General Nerf

Hello everyone, I know i have asked this before but I didn't get this answer out of that. So anyways, I have found this nice looking chest rig

https://www.amazon.c...+chest+rig&th=1

 

I will be likely getting it, but what I'm wondering is more so if m4/ar15 chest rigs like these would fit 12 dart clips. The molle webbing on there is enough for me to want to use them with the fast mags i will be getting. But i need to know if the built in slots would work for any mag or other things like blasters.

 

 




#360162 Chest rig question

Posted by Pineapplepies on 27 May 2017 - 07:10 PM in General Nerf

Unless you're dual wielding double hyperfires at maximum voltage there's no possible way you need 800 darts on your chest, to say nothing of the fact that you would be a massive and slow target for everyone else.

 
As a former XC runner, and having been on countless hiking trips and times with 35+ pounds on my back, i think I can EASILY carry something that would weigh at most no more than 20 pounds across my whole body.

But yes, I'm planning on running a hyper-fire, and that was all theoretical

Edit:and then also add a year of training and pushing myself to sprint with this full rig on, plus all I need to do is just simply have enough blasters. I can be entirely immobile and as long as I have a good cover fire I can easily take down hoards of zombies with the blasters i will be using.

 

If a chest rig will handle 18 dart box mags no problem, why wouldn't it handle a 12 dart box mag? Maybe I'm misreading something?
 
Also, if you're going into Nerf without regard to cost (lucky you!) and you also know you're getting this chest rig anyways, what exactly are you asking for?

Yes, this seems to be a big misunderstanding, and I apologize for that, I WILL MAKE THIS CLEAR AND GET YOUR EGOS OUT OF THE WAY PLEASE. I'm asking simply if the built in storage(made for M4/ar15/multiple other guns magazines, aka the 5.56 round) would fit 12 round NERF magazines, that's all. I need to know before buying the product if I can count on those pockets fitting my box mags.



#360151 Chest rig question

Posted by Pineapplepies on 27 May 2017 - 09:18 AM in General Nerf

https://www.amazon.c...ding=UTF8&psc=1
Recommend these, cheap and reliable. Holds 12x18rounders at max capacity.

+1
 
That's what I use and I've very happy with it, even when I'm using it to hold twelve 18 dart box bags.

Guys, I know you love to rave about this chest rig, but do me a favor here please and I don't need any more people reccomending this rig. Let me come clean here, i am planning to get really into nerf, and I am into spending more money on something that can get you the furthest as opposed to spending money on something cheap and have it it get you as far.

I have found this rig, and noticed it has molle, I need that, for I have found a really cheap mag holder that I'm not going to disclose for reasons of it going out of stock soon after it's shared. It holds 2 box mags for roughly $12, and on that rig I linked I can hold 18 stick mags, and up to 38 STICKMAGS if I'm willing to spend the money. That's an insane amount of rounds, around 800 to be exact.

Now I'm not planning on getting that yet, but back to the main topic, I would like it if people told me wether or not the built in storage fits 12 round magazines, I don't need to know, I'm set on getting this anyways, but I would like it if people stopped trying to get me hooked on another thing and answer my question.(note. I am already getting what you mentioned for others, my squad, but all I need to know is about one fully decked out kit for me.



#360210 Chest rig question

Posted by Pineapplepies on 30 May 2017 - 11:57 AM in General Nerf

The questions on the amazon page say it will hold AK magazines, and generally (but not 100%) gear that holds AK magazines will hold nerf magazines. If it doesn't, it should definitely hold at least SOMETHING from this nerf-related list:

 

Demolisher missile

Firestrike

Extra lipo

Extra IMR's

Water bottle

Sledgefire shells

Flashlight

Extra darts

 

And then you can find pouches that *will* hold nerf mags and attach them to the molle.

Thank you god, ok finally, exactly the answer I needed. Thank you SO much, I will proceed with getting this rig, because all of those things are something i could use. Btw, I will say for anyone who does see this page, the mag carriers I am using are called FastMags, they are double stacked 7.62 holders, now I won't disclose where you can get them, since the price I am getting them at is really cheap. Look on aliexpress for the single carriers, they are MOLLE compatible and are basically a better version of the NMAG system, don't buy that junk, this is literally half the price and is the same exact thing. 

 

Edit:and this should be pinned somewhere, I think it's useful for the community where to get a cheap loadout, this tread has established that the above vest is highly modular and useable. Then I said basically the best option out there for mag holsters, if any of you guys need a good loadout, use this system. Most people of course recommend the above Nstar vest, but for anything more than 12 mags aka any rig that runs a rapidstrike or hyperfire you are going to want these things..




#360195 Chest rig question

Posted by Pineapplepies on 29 May 2017 - 05:51 PM in General Nerf

I doubt it. This isn't a slight on you, it's just that there's no setup that will do this with nerf. Airsoft maybe, but not nerf. I know you said you need good cover fire, but that's kind of silly since if you have good cover fire you can take down hordes of zombies with a maverick.
 
You can train to run with a 50 pound load (real soldiers do it, and more) but you'll never be as fast as you would carrying a 20 pound load. That's just how humans work. The most likely scenario here is that the people you thought would be covering you will decide to run (probably a correct decision), you'll tag out a couple dozen zombies, and then get nommed. Fifteen minutes later, all of those zombies respawn. Unless you were pivotal in finishing a major mission, you didn't accomplish much, and now you don't even get to enjoy your $500 loadout.
 
However, this is all said with the caveat that if the most fun thing for you to do is to be the guy with 800 darts, then you should 100% be the guy with 800 darts for as long as you can. Just don't think it will make you invincible.

Yes, I know, that's why I'm only doing less than a 20 pound load, i know I can't run too fast with 35 pounds on my back because it does weight you down. Plans already changed, and I'm expecting less people for my squad, so I will need to carry less stuff, I am still wondering. Does anyone know if those M4 magazine slots work with the 12 dart mags, I still want to know that and no one has answered me.



#359171 Simple Longshot mod?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 11 April 2017 - 07:43 PM in Modifications

I'm surprised it's that slow, I was going to get the 8 kg spring, but now you have me wondering. Maybe 80-90 is the fastest anything can so with the AR intact? Don't get me wrong, that's about what I was looking for anyway, it just seems lower than I would have guessed.


No, but it depends how far you want to go, I have modded one long shot before and actually I would reccomend just buying and using a [k25] because it has more potential, plus you get five LONG springs for 12.15 plus shipping. The only problem is the fact that it is slightly hard to prime, I would recommend getting a pumpgrip if you wanted to go a step further and get a [k26] to work, but the max and strongest spring the longshot can handle is a [k25].



#359499 Similar design, but NEW DARTS

Posted by Pineapplepies on 27 April 2017 - 10:02 AM in Darts and Barrels

http://www.ebay.com/...sd=152489835687

 

Found these, wondering if these basically are the same as X-Waffles because those are good darts, but these are cheaper and maybe even a better dart.

 

Edit: they come in many colors, and i would think they would preform the same but want to know if anyone has these already




#359506 Similar design, but NEW DARTS

Posted by Pineapplepies on 27 April 2017 - 11:47 AM in Darts and Barrels

 

I think it's going to come down to simple testing.

 

I'm curious as to how these would do in flywheel blasters.

Yeah I may get these, anyone else feel free to get them too, anyone know if these have been mentioned before or am I the first?




#359501 Similar design, but NEW DARTS

Posted by Pineapplepies on 27 April 2017 - 10:42 AM in Darts and Barrels

Same tip geometry as waffles, but might have more give on impact.

So does that translate into working better or worse for accuracy and fps? My guess is maybe actually worse because of the gaping and un-even hole in the tip, I don't know any physics yet though but im guessing you do slug




#359118 My strongarms cylinder pop out won't work.

Posted by Pineapplepies on 08 April 2017 - 09:03 PM in Modifications

Okay.
You know, the ones with the clips that always break off leaving a brick-shaped nub!

Totally off topic but I always have had that entire thing pop off, no nub just the entire piece coming off leaving a rectangle imprint and basically a actually pencil shaped mechanical pencil

Does anyone know how to make this work, all I did is remove the dart pegs to make it compatible with stefans. It does pop out a tiny bit I'm guessing it's the air restrictor but idk I would prefer not to have to remove them. Here is the picture and yes I know that it does not have the barrel thingy. Thank you for whoever can help!


You should have no problem with that working. I removed and sanded the dart pegs and it should work fine, do you mean the shell doesn't fit back together?



#349866 Barricade will not power on out of box.

Posted by Pineapplepies on 06 December 2015 - 10:41 PM in General Nerf

Hey, I've found no help this far. I bought my son one of these. he is not strong enough to prime or pump  anything else so far. I pulled it out and decided to try it before wrapping it for Christmas. After switching it on 3 times and empty out the darts each time, it will no longer power on. Every soldering point looks intact. Batteries were RAYOVAC brand new. In typing this I realize I could go buy better batteries. Still any feedback  would be so much appreciated!!
 
Thank you very much
-Adam

Not sure if it is too late, but I would think you may want to try and see if the switch feels like it is stuck. If it is and that is the problem, then try pulling the trigger all the way. To my knowledge, both the Stockage and the Barricade will jam like that from time to time since the pusher arm will get stuck.



#359129 Buzz bee ultra tek Rapid tek vs sentinel

Posted by Pineapplepies on 09 April 2017 - 10:40 AM in General Nerf

This is basically a Sentinel in a different shell, with a better priming method and a significantly more comfortable handle. It's easier to turn it into a pump-action blaster as well. Someone brought one to the last NIB SoCal war and it had great performance right out of the box.


Huh, who would have known, I have both and quite frankly I think the sentinel is better but that's just me. Do you know if you can rotate the priming handle to the other side and has anyone done that? I use my left hand to prime and its bothersome to prime sideways so I would use this at endwar over my k26ed sentinel if I could find a way to do that.



#359127 Buzz bee ultra tek Rapid tek vs sentinel

Posted by Pineapplepies on 09 April 2017 - 09:20 AM in General Nerf

https://www.amazon.c...BCMD5EMFTGXK53N
Is this the glorious sentinel. I do not own one but might pick it up for its insane performance.

Yes sadly this is the sentinel, it's a true shame to see some idiots at hasbro found a way to basically make a monopoly. My personal reccomendtion would be not to buy it at this price, sadly I don't think it's worth that much. You should if you are going to mod it but as for just leaving it stock your time to buy it was months ago when hasbro wasn't a pain in the ass

Edit:I know I sound depressed but it is true that unless you want to mod it for this price you should get something that's more functional all around or if you have the money because the sentinel is power based, something like a EAT for this price would better serve you in any situation where you need more speed



#358489 What would be the best way to mod a nert dart?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 10 March 2017 - 12:55 PM in Darts and Barrels

I have been looking around for the best way to mod a nerf dart but are not sure which is the best.What way do you mod your darts?Or what is the best 3rd party darts to buy?

ACCurate darts are great, but I would just get bulleyes/precut or cutdown ACCs otherwise known as artifact darts. That would be for springers, for all around I would get the waffle darts, and for flywheels you will want Koosh darts. If you want slug type darts SCS work too, in link above, and the full length ones are accurate and my second choice for springers.

As for modding darts, putting straws in them, and cutting off the tip in elites and streamlines and making a glue dome are good ways to mod the darts to make them more accurate.



#350858 Possible indoor chicagoland or milwaukee area?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 18 January 2016 - 04:44 PM in Nerf Wars

if you are talking around Northbrook or Glenview(or an 1 hour or so drive) then yeah.



#351256 Any Nerfers around Northbrook or Glenview

Posted by Pineapplepies on 30 January 2016 - 12:11 PM in Nerf Wars

So I recently have gotten really into nerf, but unluckily I have not found any groups around my area. I was also looking into possibly hosting a war since I live near a massive field that could be used. Anyway, if anyone is around the area and would host a war/join one I create please tell me.



#360547 3rd party MEGA darts?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 13 June 2017 - 08:51 AM in Darts and Barrels

I've had these reccomended to me http://www.ebay.com/...xIAAOSw8-tWYHcR
 
Haven't bought them yet but thinking about it .

Yup! These are with sponge and Silica gel so I can promise you these are the same as mine, feel free to buy mine or those.



#360523 3rd party MEGA darts?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 12 June 2017 - 09:26 AM in Darts and Barrels

Hey all, wondering if anyone knows of any 3rd party, aftermarket, or non-hasbro darts that work with nerf megas.
My mega bigshock is now one of my favorite nerf pistols, especially after removing the AR, dart post, adding omw 7kg retaliator spring, and worker barrel adapter. It shoots mega darts, elite darts and rival balls really hard and far. But mega darts are faaaaar from accurate.
I would LOVE some mega sized koosh, or waffle, or fvj/fvn darts.
Any of you know of anything besides crappy nerf mega darts?
Thanks!

So there is a long story, and I will start off by saying DON'T buy those rayethion darts, someone didn't read the post, those are elite size darts. Now you have two options, one is a serious don't buy, they are crappy, jam, have terrible foam and I have tried all mega darts. Out of these, only 2-3 work. The other one, is made out of regular foam and SILICA gel, pay attention to that, because it's important to make sure you don't get the crappy one. The crappy ones are made out of EVA and soft plastic, don't buy those.

Now, i wouldn't exactly recommend these darts, but neither would I say don't buy these, it's an odd case quite frankly. With these, they whistle MUCH more than regular nerf darts, at the cost of durability. They won't last as long as regular nerf megas, and not every gun will fit these perfectly. Only the rotofury seems to have an issue with this though.

#359021 Milwaukee Area Nerf Outings (M.A.N.O.) 2017 Season dates!

Posted by Pineapplepies on 04 April 2017 - 01:21 PM in Nerf Wars

DON'T QUOTE THE WHOLE POST, SO INCONSIDERATE

Is anyone going to this in the Chicago area? I'm looking to host a war around 60025 and since you guys seem to be near wondering if we could possibly get some people from here and sort of combine the people willing to come to the war. I mean where anyone who is near us and is willing to come to ours join us, and I can provide about 5-15 people for your war, as sort of a way to increase numbers and level of fun. For ours we have about 5 people so far and planning on doing this around may 20th or 21st. We also will be using more open rules.




#359235 Demolisher absolver

Posted by Pineapplepies on 14 April 2017 - 12:18 PM in General Nerf

You could use CPVC in a 3 shot or 7 shot configuration (assuming the 7 shot configuration fits; the 3 shot definitely would).

 
Ok.... but still, how?!?!? I know that's how I do it, but where do I start, better question, what do I go and buy to make it???!? I know I should use either a twist fit or a regular coupler but then what about the actual piece that holds the cpvc, like what holds those pieces in place. I don't know if any pvc part that would fit in the back of that launching tube, like what size coupler or piece what I use

 

Been done, no offence intended, but wasn't this on an SBNC show? Where some dude did what your asking about? Cuz if thats what your thinking about, I think he explained how he made it.
But seriously, just cut out the inline barrel thingy, put some CPVC inside, and puddy that shiz up
I mean, I honestly would just couple it with CPVC and use it as a built on HAMP system.
 
-Montymarks

Checked, I know which video you are talking about but no he mentioned conduit, not what we could use here in the U.S, and I mean I want it to be REMOVABLE and able to fire one dart or three. I will ask the question and clarify more here, I want a REMOVABLE system where I put one coupler piece, and then can select different types of barrels so I can use megas, three darts, one dart, missles etc. What I don't get though is how do I make said attachments, and what materials do I use? Like what size coupling would actually allow me to use three darts and then also one?

And also, I don't care what I have to buy/use to do this, including if I have to print something because I have a 3D printer, I can make next to anything but need to know how



#359212 Demolisher absolver

Posted by Pineapplepies on 13 April 2017 - 04:43 PM in General Nerf

Does anyone know of how to make an absolver for the demolisher hamp? I don't really know what I would use and suggestions and material list would help. There aren't really any good guides on this and I know I would want a coupler but not sure how to make the multi barrel system.

To clarify, what I'm asking here is I understand I need a coupler system, and I need a bunch of a certain size of other couplers to make different attachments, but I'm wondering what I would use and how I would do it



#359336 Demolisher absolver

Posted by Pineapplepies on 20 April 2017 - 10:10 AM in General Nerf

OP,

 

I've seen your prior posts and you seem pretty smart (unlike many other posters here and elsewhere online). Therefore, I firmly believe all you need to do is search on NH for "absolver" and look at the pictures of what people have done. There is no "trick" or special part to use. It's honestly as simple as figuring how to guide high pressure air from one opening into a 3 or 7 bundle of barrels.

 

I made my own set of absolver shells and couplers by going to a bigbox hardware store and looking at what PVC screw and friction fit couplers, pipes, tubes, and other doodads they had and just brainstormed internally for 15 minutes. I then bought a wide variety of sizes and shapes (they're so cheap) went to my workshop and just experimented with only hot glue, a saw, a mitre box, epoxy, PVC cement, an X-acto knife blade, and polystyrene card stock. Literally, that's all I did and was able to figure it out despite being one of the lowest IQ members on NH.

 

Here, look at what I did:

 

http://nerfhaven.com...0-fs-mav-titan/

 

No, I don't have the part numbers or exact dimensions, but you don't need them if you go to a bigbox hardware store and just spend an extra $4.75 on PVC parts.

 

In hindsight, I would have used a screw couple with a larger opening, but that's the only thing I would have changed.

 

Based off of this, I likely will use this another time because I'm planning on using a 1/2 inch cpvc coupler, however, I will use your system. I know this would be a weird part if it exists, but does anyone know if there is a cpvc coupler PLUS a screw couple part? Like I'm saying a screw coupler of a certain size, then the inner diameter fitting cpvc through friction fit.

I GOT THIS ONE
You mentioned something about 3D printing, which I've done a bit with for absolvers. I made a simple 3 shot barrel in CAD, here it is:
wMWXClv.png

Just stick a stub of 0.5" CPVC into the back to attach it to a coupler system.

Also here is a link to the .STL, if it doesn't work for some reason let me know:
LINK

Using this, printing this today, do you know if this is airtight already or should I just wrap it in tape so no air escapes?

 

I did it, just the way I had said it. All you have to do is fill the head with hot glue, add more stuff/hot glue to kill dead space in plunger tube, and cut down barrel/epoxy on 1/2" cpvc pipe and if you want a coupler, put on a coupler. Hits like a truck on steroids singled, went so fast using a stock dart that I couldn't see it.

Ok cool, the group consensus seems to be to use 1/2 inch cpvc, so that's likely what I will do, thank you




#358485 Nerf blaster types?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 10 March 2017 - 11:21 AM in General Nerf

Hey gang, after a very lengthy hiatus I have returned...I did some searching and did not see a current topic for this and thought I pick some wise Nerfer brains:
 
I have gotten into Nerf FPS videos  (Aaron Esser on YouTube has some very popular ones based on CoD) and it got me to thinking about compiling some info to create some FPS videos with friends. I thought of making one with just Pistols (more of a Goldeneye ruleset I think) and started looking up pistol type Nerf blasters and wanted some insight on what blasters would be the ideal fit for that?Thanks
 
Thanks in advance guys!

Depends how far you are willing to go to make stuff, and if you are looking for the actual guns to look real. You can do anything from buying a doubleshot, cpvc, and make a western pistol to maverick, cyclone shock, and of the airtech guns so airtech 2000, 3000, or 4000, mono-blast etc. If you wanted to have like a future type battle any of the cyber strike gear works, and also any of the alien menace stuff.

Edit: I mean like really just look on the wiki for what you want, there are hundreds of blasters that work and you could use, some are harder to find than others, then just hit up eBay and search for that stuff, I mean hell even a tek 6 if painted could look cool so really unless you are going for performance then go with really anything buzz bee or stats blast



#358578 Nerf blaster types?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 16 March 2017 - 10:52 AM in General Nerf

 

Here;s the thing...I want them to be stock blasters much like the videos Ive found in my scanning YouTube so modded blasters are probably out

Is there a reason why you don't want modded? Usually unless you are firing it and you are worried about speed you don't ever need to worry about power or unfairness for others because you use effects instead of darts. However if REQUIRE not to use mods then that's just your loss, you can make trillions of replicas and look alikes when you are limited to  less than 1000 guns from all blaster brands, many of which won't ever look real unless you mod them or paint them
 
Edit:Ok fair enough you want stock but do realize modded stuff can look cooler and add uniqueness to the gun, and worst case just mod something and paint it to look normal, like that elite stampede mod drac did a video on

 

 

Here is what I have as far as somewhat current Pistol type blasters
 
Triad EX-3
Glowshot
Elite Firestrike
Falconfire
Jolt
Disruptor
Strongarm
Bigshock
 
Rockets would probably be all Tri-Strike, Demolisher and Thunder Blast...that about right?
 
 

There are more, if you want to go vintage you can get everything from a big blast, to titan, to ultimate missile blast(Don't listen to me on the big blast one though unless you mod because they are hard to get for cheap prices and are popular so don't kill one of those for something like this, leave it to someone who needs it). As for miniguns if you want one go with a dart zone scorpion or air zone punisher. For pistols really anything works from the tech target to the flipfury.




#358189 Anyone willing to come out for a Chicago area nerf war?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 24 February 2017 - 02:34 PM in Nerf Wars

Hey! I think his name is Daniel Beaver, he mentioned that maybe we should just try playing with just 4-6 players to start off. Would you consider it? I would do it if no one else decides to join our war, but I don't know if that would be worth it for people driving 3-4 hours. I think we need at least 10 players before we set a time and date. What do you think man?

Yup, fine with me, we should see if we can get anyone else, keep up the good work, we need more people because I would prefer if we have more people from here than my friends to keep it interesting, but yeah keep messaging people stuff and send messages to people near the area. 4-6 would be fine but I want to see if we can get more because I know what I'm doing, I may be young but I can be a leader and can easily handle a bunch of people, in fact it is I, a mid teenager that is hosting a local 40+ war for my neighbor with cancer so I think I can handle it. 




#358138 Anyone willing to come out for a Chicago area nerf war?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 22 February 2017 - 12:27 PM in Nerf Wars

Hello,

So if anyone has payed attention to the thread talking about hosting a nerf war in Chicago area this is continued from there. What I am wondering if is anyone would be willing to come out to 60025 area for a war. People of all ages would be allowed and mention if anyone else would join you. We need a headcount to see if we have enough to host a war.

 

So far we have myself, and up to 30 others for a definite(realistically about 10-15)

 

Possible others(who have mentioned they may attend)

Daniel Beaver

Pacnick11

 

We haven't figured out the rules yet, however we would allow mostly everything so expect a more intense war, and we would allow all kinds of mods and maybe homemades if enough people have them. For playing area we have a very large field that is long enough to launch sizeable model rockets and have them end up in grass so you calculate how large a field would need to be to do that.

 

So anyone interested? If so just please comment below




#359020 Anyone willing to come out for a Chicago area nerf war?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 04 April 2017 - 01:15 PM in Nerf Wars

Well... showing up is all that really matters, especially considering our circumstances with an incredibly low player count. As of right now, I honestly couldn't care less about what kind of blasters we're going to be using (mod or non-mod), the game-modes we decide to play, or the overall quality of the Nerf War. All I want is at least 15 or so players, a determined location, and a date/time for this nerf war. It's not that I'm being lazy or impatient, but considering the fact that I will probably be moving cross-country in about 3 & 1/2 months... there is a chance that I will have to throw in the towel and drop out of this thread if things don't speed up between now and summer. I really, really don't want this to happen so that's why I keep telling you guys to please help me out with the advertising, on here and on Facebook. We have 3 months to get it together. Time will fly, trust me.


Hmmmmm this isn't good, we are about 6 days away from 3 months until you leave, so here's the deal. I can get my friends in on this if everyone's fine on that, or we could have a small war with whoever we have. As for the others, please just advertise on Facebook, speaking of which Pacnick have you tried advertising to the group in Milwaukee? Look in the wars thread there is a lot of wars within an hour of us so I think I'm going to go advertise there.

Whoa, thats 4 hours away, but I'll ask the parents(so maybe). Do you know when you are thinking this will be?


Mid march or April, we still need to see if we can get anyone else before we finalize date

We still have no response, we need people for this war, so anyone who sees this and would come out PLEASE say something.

Well, I know that I am advertising our Nerf War, not sure about others though. It would really help if I wasn't alone doing all this messaging. If you look through the forums, I've commented on just about every nerf group's forum within 4-5 hours of Chicago. Honestly, I've done as much as I can on here and on Facebook. If I do anymore messaging, I'm sure people will say that I am harassing them and I defiantly don't want that.

 

Keep in mind, it's been over 1 and 1/2 months since the initial posting. This war needs to happen before July, otherwise I won't be able to make it. :( 

I know, this is getting annoying, and I'm sorry I can't help but I have basically promised to myself that I don't need, and will not be joining social networks. 

However,

TO ANYONE OUT THERE THIS IS YOUR TIME TO RESPOND, AND TO ANYONE WHO ALREADY WANTS TO GO PLEASE ADVERTISE,

 

Here is the info;

This will take place preferably on the weekend of April 20th,

We will have almost no bans on darts or blasters(subject to change)

It will be hosted on a LARGE field in area code 60025, glenview, chicago, illinois, so homemades allowed

Anyone will be allowed, all ages,

I already have many darts including glue domes,

We will have many loaners so if you have nothing you can come

And other than that we will have fun so please come out

Yeah, I know about that Facebook Nerf group and I am a member too, but I can't make that "Dawn of Foam" war. I almost punched a Fuckin hole in my computer screen when I found out it's happening on April 2nd... my high school's Spring Break starts on March 30th and I'm going to be flying out of town that Friday to visit some Universities in the Big Apple. That's life, I suppose.
 
 
Nice man. Scratch 1 more player, Pineapplepies.
 
Andy, if you know anyone that like to Nerf PLEASE tell them about this Nerf war in Chicago.
We're having a really hellish time gathering players, this is the 2nd month and we only have like 4-5 people.
 
Thanks!
 

Heh heh seems like pacnick too has spring break, that's why I am leaving. Ok cool! So we have another, let us still try to advertise and see if we can get anywhere, paknick if you could try maybe saying a comment on the facebook page saying come to this war and get people to join that would be great. I think a good number of people we need at least is 6 people, then that on top of my friends which would add a fair amount of people. 
For the people who are joining, what sort of guns do you have, does anyone have some loaners or things others can use?

I'd be willing to come for a little bit, but mainly for the purpose of selling what I've got left... I of course will participate though. Im a bit south, in joliet

 
Anyways, ok, yeah actually I am interested in some of your stuff I would buy it there, in fact actually if you have $50 worth of blasters or the equivalent, I can just hand you a $50 visa gift card.

Edit:nevermind on whole double post thing, thank you ice nine



#358585 Anyone willing to come out for a Chicago area nerf war?

Posted by Pineapplepies on 16 March 2017 - 04:02 PM in Nerf Wars

Yeah, I don't understand it at all. My original forum has been active for over a month already. There's 9.4 Million people living in the Chicagoland area and we get only 4 players? Let me say that again: 9.4 Million. That is an insane number of people. There should be way, way more people responding to this forum. I shouldn't have to look into other NerfHaven forums or venture into the world of Facebook just to invite players living 3-4 hours away. What about the 2.7 million residents of Chicago? Where the hell are all the Chicagoans? This is the largest city in America for Christ's Sake!!!!

Yeah you are right, it is crazy, I just don't understand how so few people are into this hobby it is great.

If you're having issues with outreach, you might have to branch out to Facebook (the Chicago Nerf Wars group is fairly active). They're hosting their Dawn of Foam war on April 2nd, that would probably be a good occasion for you to meet some other nerfers in your area and spread the word that you're willing to host wars.

Ok, well thanks for advice, pacnick this is your que, see if you can go to this, I know im going to be away but that being said I want to see if one of us could go and we could advertise.




#356671 Tactical vest??!?!

Posted by Pineapplepies on 07 November 2016 - 04:44 PM in General Nerf

So as you can probaly tell by the title I am wondering about tactical vests for nerf. In particular does anyone know if this would work for 18 round nerf mags?(And quite possiblely 20 round buzz bee mags) https://www.amazon.c...oding=UTF8&th=1

I need some form of rig for hvz/wars so any suggestions I could get for holding many mags would be much appreciated. If someone knows another way of going about this which would be relatively inexpensive that would be great too.




#358618 Men gun vs Xwaffles

Posted by Pineapplepies on 18 March 2017 - 01:50 PM in Darts and Barrels

The mengun types are good but the ekind waffleheads have more forward weight, so they fly better under high flywheel power conditions. Both have more forward weight & will be much more stable in flight than elites but with less overall range (not that you'd notice with elites with their wild flight paths which reduce their straight linear range).

Oh ok, so would these be better for flywheels or springers or can they be used well across the board? And I don't care about range that much, I want to know the difference between the two but I just need something better than elites

Their tip diameter and profile is different and in that regard specifically I GREATLY prefer the men-gun darts for homeamdes because they feed easier through hoppers and breech systems once they are cut shorter. The quality control of EKIND darts is also somewhat spotty so you'll have to spot check batches for mold flash on the tips.
 
If you are using stock blasters there's no practical difference between the two beyond weight distribution.


Ok thank you, if you have either, and same goes for sir brass, do either of you know the preformance difference and the accuracy difference? Like basically the reason why I asked this in the first place is because I'm wondering for this large war I am hosting if I should pick one over the other to buy or if I should buy both.



#358606 Men gun vs Xwaffles

Posted by Pineapplepies on 17 March 2017 - 01:20 PM in Darts and Barrels

So as you can possibly tell from the title, wondering if anyone knows the difference/performance difference between men gun darts and the Ekind waffle tips. I am in the market for bulk amounts of darts and both men gun and the ekind darts are in the sizes I want them, so if anyone could tell me which one is better if at all that would be great.
This is at full length by the way, however if anyone knows the hopperabilty of either of these then please share because may use these for homemades too.
