I am currently using Converted Tagger Darts in my LS (because they're cheaper than Streamlines) but once in every two or three clips or so the dart will jam up in the LS. I opened it up once to unjam the thing and found the dart doubled over and jammed into the barrel. Is anyone else having these problems or is it just my dart/clip/LS?
So yeah, I don't know if I can find enough people to test this out, but I have a feeling the police are going to get a little suspicious if I'm camping out at someone's house with a modded black LS. Then again this may be stupid, but I just wanted to throw out this idea.
Again, a very good idea.
in fact, i am an ACTUAL girl and my friend got me into nerf guns, and I've been poking at my collection for awhile... I have the Recon, Longshot, Nite Finder (my only modded gun [man isn't that sad?]) Firefly, and Maverick (which is broken right now). Whenever me n my friends play, we always turn off the lights, just for fun, and i always like having a light on each gun. So, i don't really want to put the light i have on the top, it makes it harder for me to aim at people. I can aim well, but i usually need the scope on top to aim, light or dark. So it'd be helpful to have an extra light in place of the bi-pod, which i never use. I like the tactical rail system, because i can change things if i don't like it.... I'm no good at modding, really so i like things kinda simple...
long story short I wanna have two tactical rails on my longshot so i can have a light and scope, without them being permanently there
Well, looks like we do have some active female nerfers. I thought they were an endangered species haha. If you really want to put a tactical rail on your longshot, you could rip one off of another gun (maybe that broken Mav?) and epoxy the thing on or you could custom make one.
If I had time i would just make one, but right now, I'm being ghetto and using velcro strips on my longshot. I have them running along the front end of the "assault rifle" portion of the LS and some more velcro on my flashlight, low-power red light, etc. Pretty handy for small stuff. Just an idea...
And as far as I know, pvc can take a good amount of beating before it fails...at least in some spud cannon designs I've seen, but maybe that's another topic all together...
and I agree with RavenX, a NF (that's a Nite Finder) would be a nice gun to start modding.
As for the internals, a lot of ppl seem to have problems with this gun. I have two DS myself. Just make sure you put EVERYTHING back where it came from. Make sure the springs are all there.
As a side note...I wouldn't bother even trying to fix the gun now...not in that condition, but you can try.
Perhaps you should get a better (cooler looking) scope for it although I'm not sure if your LS has the ranges to match the scope, but it's just for cosmetics.
to Ccapogreca: I personally don't care for replicas, but some people like to go for Nerf replicas of weapons, don't put them down so hard
But anywho, I'm from Augusta,GA. That's about a little over 2hrs away from Conyers and Zaxbys is also here in Augusta. We probably have about 5-6 people down here. Just letting you know we exist...
There is a war being planned for sometime between May 25 and May 31. If anyone is interested, please say so by May 23 so that my people can decide on a suitable location for however many people are coming.
I am fairly sure there some nerfers here in GA and SC, including the dude that posted the hilarious Conyers,GA post (lets not go there), and I'm hoping that there will be other wars here in this area.
I'm going to check on the potential turnout from local nerfers first before my group decides on time, place, food, etc.
As far as I know, there are two possible places we might play:
Choice #1: Garrett Elementary School Playground/Campus
Has two levels, one on top of a hill and a lower level next to a fairly large flat field.
Campus consist of the main school building w/ courtyard, two portables, and a separate gym.
Choice #2: A smaller public park in the Montclair subdivision
Consists of a playground with cover and baseball field.
I'm going to scout out other potential places later this week.
I would know, my friend built a mini-spud gun that fired 5/8" stefans (basically tipped with 4-5 BBs...armor piercing if you would say) and we fired it at our school for a demonstration. Got about 250 ft before it hit the outdoor ampitheater with a nice, loud clang. The dart left a dent in the sheet metal from 250 ft away. Now imagine that thing hitting flesh...
We are currently shooting for the 26th of May, which happens to be Memorial Day, so that may be a problem. Let me know if this to too much trouble and my people would be happy to push it back a little.
My group has decided to play the elementary school campus (see first post).
As for the timetable (this is only an estimate):
11:00ish - Start time, Lunch, Chilling, Gearing up
12:00ish - Start matches
4-6:00 - End time, depending on what we want to do.
I'm working on getting pics for everyone, so they can get a sense of the playing field. I'll also get directions out to those of you who would like to show up, so let me know if you will show definitely by May 17ish (cuz I have exams to deal with after that date...)
Stay tuned for updates.
to Snazzy Q: you are talking bout a singled titan right? if so, I'm not sure if we can let you use that, but I will run it by my group and see what they think.
As for the date, I completely forgot that the Augusta area schools get out a little earlier and some people work. My group is still leaning towards Memorial Monday (May 26) and I will not be able to hold one on May 24 or 31 (both Saturdays) because of prior engagements but any other days should be okay. Worst case scenario, we will push the war back a few weeks. Perhaps some of you could throw out some dates that are okay with you and my group will take a look at our schedules.
to Cmdrmack: My group would be honored if your clan came out and played with us, as we've never had another clan to play with.
As to game rules, so far we've played only one-hit kill (as our group is small and we tend to play very small wars). If we get enough people, we will play standard east coast rules (3/15) and possible CTF.
You know, what you could do is cut a little piece out of the top part of the barrel (the thing sticking out at the end of the gun) and make a little sight. A black paintjob would make this thing look awesome.
My group currently would like to play at T. Harry Garrett Elementary School. You can look that up on Google Maps or whatever. The logistics may be a problem however, as the school is closed for the summer and I'm not sure if we have access to restrooms, water fountains, etc. I'll check with the school.
The secondary location is a large public park called Warren Road Park. I will notify everyone if we have to change to this location.
Sorry but I can't make it to this one. I just realized that I get back on the 14th from a 50-mile hike in the AT so I won't be attending. Is there any chance of having one in late July?
Um, I can throw that idea out to my people and see if they are willing to host another one then. My own personal schedule will be shaky in July but perhaps another one of my clan members can plan one.
Edit: Well now that you mention it, a h2h round sounds pretty cool, perhaps between normal rounds just to make it interesting.
