#97415 Moddable?

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 30 December 2006 - 03:39 PM in General Nerf

(ok, i'll clean it up...) next time i go to my cabin, i'll grab it and tear it apart. and the thing with the bobber is i think
it stays shut during cast, until it hits the water, then opens up. i suck at fishing though, so i haven't gave it any other use than popping people in the head with the bobber shell taped shut.
that, and it sounds spring-loaded, prolly not a plunger.

is this moddable? even worthy of modding?

Another good idea would be a clip fed pistol. :angry:

Just with darts.

The grip of a pistol is too small for Nerf Darts, it would have to be stored in a forward compartment.

Something along these lines perhaps:

The bolt would be similar to the slider on a maverick, scout, or crossfire, but you'd push it forward to chamber the round. It'd have to be at least the size of a maverick, but if they could get it to have interchangeable clips with the Longshot it'd sell like hotcakes.

something like the Storm LS-2, eh?
i LOVE that gun...
i only need two to wreak hell...
btw, you can get extended magazines for these...



#152376 Longshot Or Recon?

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 21 April 2008 - 11:35 AM in General Nerf

longshot wins. i sold my recon for $20 and spent that on darts. the LS has so much more potential.

Bustaninja, it's on...

first of all, far-fucking-out. put this on a high perch and pwn from afar.

i wish i could mount a LS on to a robot. i'd call it johnny 6.

#102090 High School Pranks...

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 11 April 2007 - 05:24 PM in Off Topic

it's just a prank, let the guy have some fun. ^_^

try screwing or super gluing the bathroom stalls doors shut. (done by yours truly)
- or -
taking the pins out of the door hinges. (attempted, caught.)

you could even pull my Sadie Hawkins classic and use a big ol' stink/smoke-bomb on the dance floor.

slap the end of a roll of tape to a car and run around the row till you're out. or just slather the one car with tape.

go nuts with Pam on the railings.

ha ha, Crisco. that'd kick ass.

Every M16A4 I've seen in duty or in live action doesn't have a curve-mag. Its straight and holds 10 shots.

my (issued) m16a4 has a 30 round curved magazine. what action have you seen with 10 rd magazines?



#151407 My Recon M16a4

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 16 April 2008 - 09:45 AM in Modifications

at least you have the general idea of what an M16 looks like, some guy on here posted an ugly longshot(non-recon) and called it an m16. all you need now is the stock and a hi-cap magazine.

For the lights are so wasted and gone
We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days
Through the fire and the flames… WE CARRY ON!!!

(applause) I think we should all be grateful CaptainSlug is sharing his acumen and experience with us. just as I look up to my commanding officers, I believe we could all benefit from his knowledge, and see him not just as a senior member, but as a big brother of sorts.

not to be kissing ass or anything...

Good luck to you. My dad was a reservist in the canadian army, but this was in the 70s, so no fighting. Stay strong over there. I heard people get pretty whacked from seeing all the madness over there.


oh, don't worry about me, I was a soldier before i swore in. a STREET soldier.



#154986 Retirement

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 06 May 2008 - 09:51 PM in General Nerf

MNNO was my last war for at least two years. I am shipping to BCT(Basic Combat Training) on June 10th, maybe sooner. I enjoyed every precious second I had to spend with the fine gentlemen (and lady) that attended 2MNSBW and MNNO, and hopefully, when and if I come back, I'll still have the honor to battle amongst some of the most creative and genius minds of this fine community.

On the bright side, I will stay on nerfhaven for as long as possible.

I shall retire my arsenal in a safe place until I return.

"On a crazy note: Think that they will let you put 2 m16/m4's together?"

:D I'd rather dual-wield AK's personally, they're more reliable.

"In all seriousness I think that being in the army is probably the most respectful thing one can do on these boards, dude in my eyes VACC isn't even as respectable enough as you are now."

I hope he didn't hear that! :D

when I come back, i expect 6-packs and white girls from all of you! :lol:

edit: and don't call me sir, i work for a living. but i'll gladly return the salute.

I do wanna see videos of some crazy drill master yelling about Nerf. That would make me laugh.

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 21 October 2009 - 10:58 AM in General Nerf

That said, nerf tactics are something I love to talk about, but are better taught through actually nerfing. I'd prefer if this thread come back to its original purpose, which was local recruitment. If Messiah would like me to close it and start over, that's fine. If you WANT to discuss specific tactics, start a new thread. Though, I warn you, most people who chime in have will have no idea what they are talking about.


Well, I rather like where this thread has gone to. Who doesn't ask questions before they join something? I have no problem answering questions from interested nerfers. I'll just ask that any more questions will be through PM.

If I move to St. Paul can I play nerf guns like GI Joe with you guys? Can I be Road Block? PLEASE?!


Yes. pew pew. :3

Wait...will I have to do push ups? Because I'm not really a fan of "physical exertion."


only if you screw up something fierce. lol



#254688 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 27 October 2009 - 12:07 PM in General Nerf

Well, yes. But what if they were aiming at your abdomen? adjust, lie flat? The point of training is to get better at something.

Max Payne...I like that. ;)

Edit: I know you didn't phish me, the IP was from new york.



#254040 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 07:52 AM in General Nerf

Yes, I mentioned in the first post about finding appropriate cover or concealment(preferably, the first.)

One of the things I will be teaching is bounding, which goes something like this:

Let's say two players are moving in a team towards a treeline to flank a hole or a loser. when the two enter into the treeline, Player A will move 5 meters or so to the left or right of player B and find cover, for instance, a tree. Player B spots a Vulcan dug in about 30 meters ahead. Player A will signal B to move up. Player B will move up to the next available cover while Player A provides covering fire. when Player B is set, He will signal Player A to move up past him, whilst providing him with covering fire. Repeat until you are in a good offensive position to push on towards the objective.

Also, thank you goongala, for actually understanding what I'm trying to do here.



#254024 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 19 October 2009 - 11:25 PM in General Nerf

You are a great guy to Nerf with. I can see where the appeal to this is, but truth be told, its Nerf. You will never have guns accurate enough, or that shoot fast enough to make actual "training" applicable. Bullets are hard to dodge, so the goal is to kill an enemy before they fire. Nerf, on the otherhand, is really easy to dodge.

It would be like sending the National Guard after Neo from the Matrix... It might work, but it seems like it would take a while.

Although, I may be totally wrong. I'd like for your Nerf crew to come to an NIC war. I want to see what you guys can do.


What is this NIC you speak of?

I like to have things structured.



#253941 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 19 October 2009 - 01:02 PM in General Nerf

I have formed a nerf group that will either host or attend operations in the surrounding areas of St. Paul, mostly between Inver Grove Heights and North St. Paul, so, a fairly wide theater. We are about 17 members strong thus far, and are always recruiting. If you find that you are interested in joining us, click here to be directed to our Facebook Page.

This isn't recruiting for any branch of the United States Armed Forces. The group has been designated that because I want it that way, seeing as I train every one of my members in the ways of the Army Ranger as applied to nerf: squad and team-based tactics, improvised cover and concealment, so on and so forth.

I'll take any questions through PM.



#254026 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 19 October 2009 - 11:33 PM in General Nerf

This is nerf: we don't conduct "operations", we don't play in "theaters", we don't "train", we don't have military rankings, we don't use "squad tactics", and we don't wear all camo. This is nerf, not the fucking military.


First of all, read this.

Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of the Rangers.

Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.

Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well-trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.

Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.

Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.

Unless you know what it means to live and die by these six stanzas, MegaMouse, you can shut your shit-cave.

I regret to say that the military has taken over every aspect of my life, especially my hobbies, so if you feel that it's too much for you, leave it be. Simple as that.



#254031 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 12:17 AM in General Nerf

I cannot fathom why people aren't jumping at this.


Because nerf is a game, and you're taking yourself waaaay too seriously?


So is basketball, football, soccer, hockey...they all have playbooks, why shouldn't this sport/game/riffraff?



#254114 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 07:15 PM in General Nerf

Interesting fact here I thought I'd throw in: A stefan fired from a plugged, singled titan at maximum force has comparable muzzle velocity to a 40mm Airfoil round, and they both sting at close range.


Which is why they are almost universally banned from the nerf wars organized on these forums.


Why, yes, I understand that.



#254042 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 08:15 AM in General Nerf

First of all, read this.


A million times no.

Team work is effective. Military squad tactics are, usually, not.

Generally speaking, going out and nerfing with your friends on a regular basis will do more to improve your teamwork and nerf iq than....how do you train nerf anyway? Wouldn't whatever you're doing just be, well, nerfing?

Anyway, knock yourself out, but I'd keep a couple things in mind if I were you: 1 - Nerf tactics are completely different than tactics using any other type of firearm. 2 - At any given nerf war you're only going to have your squad together for maybe a couple of rounds.

Now, of course, maybe you don't plan on attending any NIC type wars. Maybe you only want to throw your own wars. If that's the case, good luck, but remember that if you're using a bunch of new nerfers as practice for your well equiped and experienced team, those new nerfers will not likely have enough fun in order to want to become old nerfers.


I've taken all that into account already. my Squads are devided up by skill and rank. When we play within our ranks, we balance out the teams by such standards, so that it is fair play and fun play. We don't mind getting split up, as I tend to lean towards team-based tactics rather than squad based tactics, as moving in groups aren't very practical with more than 4 bodies. Thusly, if you wanted to be a nerd about it, you could say I'm taking the "Army of Two" approach.

Believe me, I know that nerf guns have few ballistic similarities to real firearms, and I have adjusted our rules of engagement as to compensate.

Interesting fact here I thought I'd throw in: A stefan fired from a plugged, singled titan at maximum force has comparable muzzle velocity to a 40mm Airfoil round, and they both sting at close range.



#254115 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 07:21 PM in General Nerf

As long as you don't show up to the same MN war as me in full camo, I'll be happy to hit you guys in the neck a few times.

Camo in the Nerf world equates to a giant sign that says "SHOOT AT ME"


Only if they can see where you are. I realize, in wide-range wars, camouflage definitely has it's use, but not as practical in constant-contact engagements, where both sides are in plain view of the other team ninety-nine percent of the time, whereas the camouflage serves as more of a team uniform.
