I'm tired now, I'll post details later.
Skitzo and nerf beginner were hiding in the bushes during a pistol round, when they accidentally disturbed a bees nest. I was walking around the field, as I was already out, when I heard shouting and running. I looked behind me, and saw the two of them charging out of the bushes at top speed being pursued by a number of insects. Instead of running away from everybody else, they ran straight at the people who were already out. Because they were being persued, the bees followed them into the crowd, and stung everybody. After seeing this, I took off in the other direction. However, Skitzo had stopped running around in circles, and was now running in the same direction that I was; still being chased by bees. I yelled, "don't follow me, you're gonna get me stung too!" So I ran faster, and managed to keep from getting stung. In the end, most people got stung, and we were VERY lucky that no one was allergic to bees.
So, if you were wondering, there's your answer.
In terms of improving the grenade idea, maybe you should try shotgun barrel attachments. The Pocket Blaster may not have enough power to drive them, but if it does, it should increase the amount of darts in the air.
Now I have some time. Ok, so here is a link to where the splitfire's valves are explained:
scroll about 2/3 the way down the page, the post is by falcon.
What I am saying, is you need to find a way to either push the little black rubber seals back into position, or to lubricate them with something to make them seal better. I'm afraid that to do this, you're on your own, as I was not able to fix mine despite numerous attempts.
And as for shooting them out of a gun? Well sure, let's shoot burning chunks of chemicals at each other. I think it would be cool to do, but unfortunately, it's just too dangerous.
(a) Firearm. -- The term "firearm" means (1) a shotgun having a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length; (2) a weapon made from a shotgun if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length; (3) a rifle having a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length; (4) a weapon made from a rifle if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length; (5) any other weapon, as defined in subsection (e); (6) a machinegun; (7) any silencer (as defined in section 921 of title 18, United States Code); and (8) a destructive device. The term "firearm" shall not include an antique firearm or any device (other than a machinegun or destructive device) which, although designed as a weapon, the Secretary finds by reason of the date of its manufacture, value, design, and other characteristics is primarily a collector's item and is not likely to be used as a weapon.
I doubt that you'll get any trouble for it, but it is something to consider. I think that NERF guns fall under the classification of a collectible.
I think that it would be really, really, stupid for some loophole to make nerf guns classified as firearms, but I'm not a lawyer, so I wouldn't know.
I have provided a trail guide, but use common sense. Remember, you're trying to get to the area labeled play area. If you arrive late, stay put and call one of us; we will come and find you.
Turn in at the Saxon Woods park sign
As you head into the parking lot, park on the left side.
In the left corner of the parking lot, closest to the road, there is a trail entrance.
The trail head should look like this:
After walking on the trail for a while, small trail will fork off to left; take the left trail:
After a short ways, you will come to a large trail; turn right on this trail
Looking down the trail
Keep heading down this trail. Eventually you will hit a fork; turn left.
(I know it says go right in the photo, just go left)
You'll know you're close when you see this large upturned tree stump:
You will see this when you have arrived:
The whole walk took us 16 minutes (with time to take pictures)
So, if we use the carpool system it will be kind of complicated, and if people come late, there could be a problem. But, if we use the main parking lot, there will be no parking complications; however, there's a catch, the walk from the main lot to the fields is around 0.8-0.9 miles (about 20-25 minutes on foot). The paths are really flat and wide, but still, carrying all of that stuff that distance is tough. My question is, which would you guys prefer?
Basically, you get a piece of brass that fits in side your barrel ( I use CPVC) and put aslice in the end of it about 1/4 of an inch long. After that, you fold out the area near the slice just a few degrees to make a sharp corner. You will have to do some experimenting to find out how much you bend out the brass, as it depends on barrel type. Next is the tricky bit, take the brass, and heat it up on a gas stove until your flame starts to turn green. (This part is dangerous, make sure you wear heat proof gloves when holding the barrel and the brass that you can get off if the heat starts to get through. Also, like I need to tell you guys this, but try not to burn your house down, and immediately after using the heated metal, dunk it in a bucket of water to cool it down). After the metal is heated, jam it down the barrel while twisting it at a constant rate. Then pull it out while making sure that the threads go the same way. Repeat this afew times to get the barrel sufficiently rifled.
The method is crude, yet efffective. I don't know if it's just me, but I feel that my shots go straighter with barrels treated this way; however, I don't have any data to back this up.
First off, here are the materials you will need:
PETG: about 6 inches of it
1/2" brass: 3/4 inch length
1/2" CPVC: About 3/4 inch length
1/2" PVC: about an one and a quarter inches
5/8" brass (with a slot cut into it): The slot is 1 and 3/4 inches long, and is cut about 13/16 inches from the end. The whole length is about 5 and 3/4 inches.
First, dremmel out the CPVC so that the 1/2" brass fits snuggly about 1/4" inside of it.
Next, Put a seal of teflon tape around the 1/2" brass.
Then, push the CPVC into the PVC all the way to the end of the PVC.
Then, push the 5/8" brass into the PVC so that it goes into the same end as the 1/2" brass is sticking out of.
Last, push the PETG in the breach, and it's ready for use. Use it for whatever you can think of, or maybe put a magazine/clip on it.
The breach works by having the PETG seal against the 1/2" brass in the back. The 5/8" brass is to hold the dart in place as the PETG bolt(?) is moved into place.
Well, within reasonable boundaries that's true, but not necessarily in all circumstances.Size means nothing. Its the strength of the spring. The DS spring is more powerful. Also, you need to make sure your darts have a good fit in PETG.
It might be bigger. Tonight I'll take a picture of both of them side-by-side. We will see.
I've had problems like this. It's usually one, or both of these problems; the barrel is too long, or the stefan doesn't fit properly. First, I would try making the barrel shorter (try 4" first, than 3"), if that doesn't work, try CPVC as your barrel material. Also, try lubricating the plunger, and make sure that you have a good seal. If all of that doesn't work, put the stock spring back in.
If all of this doesn't help, then I have no idea what's wrong.
If we bring our own weapons? every body is going to bring their own weapons. Also, the vast majority of people use home made darts. Are you absolutely sure that home made darts not allowed?
If you bring your own wepons dont bring stephons.
With that said, using a paintball park sounds pretty cool. I will talk to the other members of our clan, but it sounds a little far away for us.
That has been extensively discussed (maybe too extensively). The general consensus was that it was not possible. You can use the search function to find the thread.
so, as a follow up question, would it be possible/feasable to rifle a barrel? That would give a lot more accuracy than a less snug barrel that the dart smacks around on would.
"Blocking: Once a gun has been hit with a dart once, any hit thereafter made by the same player that shot the first hit counts as a direct hit to the player."
So basically, after the first gun hit, anything is fair game. After a person leaves the general battle area, they reset their amount of gun hits. Like all aspects of nerf, we play on an honor system. If it matters to some one so much that they win a nerf battle that they would lie to us, we would rather let them have that than argue for an hour.
That's how it goes down in our neck o' the woods. However, when we play standard 3/15, we play with gun hits counting as an out.
