#110166 Nerf War Etiquette

Posted by CD-R on 08 June 2007 - 09:30 PM in Nerf Wars

For our weekly saturday wars, this is an excerpt of our rules on gun hits:
"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.

I found it very easy to understand. It was good enough for me. Just one thing:

This is my first ever Write up, so bear with me.


#136183 Ecno

Posted by CD-R on 16 January 2008 - 06:13 PM in Nerf Wars

I was there last time, and it's not that much of an issue. We just used common sense, and followed a few basic rules.

Don't go in any holes
Watch your step
Stay away from ledges

If I remember correctly, that was last year's plan. Also, if any one finds anything dangerous, we don't have to play in that particular area.

I will be coming with z80. Are there any restrictions on guns like at deal?

#116016 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by CD-R on 16 July 2007 - 06:09 PM in Nerf Wars

That sounds fair.

#117010 Apoc 2007 (nj)

Posted by CD-R on 24 July 2007 - 05:30 PM in Nerf Wars

Wait, I didn't wear anything at Deal...

Geez, man-- I don't even have to try when you set 'em up like this...

Neither did your mom last night? You're right, this is just too easy.

By making himself super vulnerable, has RAMBO some how made himself invincible?

#113476 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by CD-R on 28 June 2007 - 11:26 AM in Nerf Wars

To avoid miscommunication, and noob bashing, I'm one of z80's three people. I was wondering if I could get some GPS coordinates (or the general area) of DEAL park; this way I could look it up on Google Earth. I looked around on Google Earth, and didn't find much. Is the actual name of the place "deal park", or something else? I found a nieghborhood named Deal Park, but I take it that we're not playing there.

Must have missed the invite only part in the beginning of the thread. OK.

#106745 Deal War (new Jersey)

Posted by CD-R on 20 May 2007 - 03:27 PM in Nerf Wars

After missing LCM, I would like to come along with z80's bunch. That is, only if we get organized in time.
PS, as z80 posted, the thirtieth is best for us.

Thanks. So then it's actually Joe Palaia Park.

Maybe you could do something similar to Captainslug's paintball tank configuration.

#108797 Future Nerf War Crime

Posted by CD-R on 01 June 2007 - 04:23 PM in Homemades

I think this is less of a nerf gun, and more of a potato cannon; not something to point at anyone else.

#104586 Lcm Summer Tune-up

Posted by CD-R on 08 May 2007 - 08:05 PM in Nerf Wars

Some things have come up, so I may have to leave early, or not come at all. I will edit this post when I have more information. Sorry OMC, that means I may not be able to buy that foam from you.

#103853 Lcm Summer Tune-up

Posted by CD-R on 03 May 2007 - 09:45 PM in Nerf Wars

I plan to use a mix of micros and megas, but mainly micros. Last time, (at ECNO) I couldn't use my garbage gun (its name is derived form the fact that I made it from random junk in my basement) due to lack of megas, and my 3k broke in the first ten minutes. both problems are now solved. I will be getting a ride with z80, as I am a member of z80's "crew", or as darkshrimp so eloquently put it, an oodle nerfer.

#105179 Lcm Summer Tune-up

Posted by CD-R on 12 May 2007 - 10:16 PM in Nerf Wars

I cannot come. There is just no way that I can make it work.
OMC I'll just send the money for the foam with some one else, probably a kid named max. Do you have a scale that you can weigh it on? This way I can compare the two weights to check whether some idiiot stole any of it on the car ride back.

#118700 Silencers

Posted by CD-R on 07 August 2007 - 03:35 PM in Homemades

I remember reading somewhere that any sort of weapon or something with a silencer on it is considered firearm. Here is what the National Firearms Act says:
(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.

Posted by CD-R on 14 July 2007 - 09:58 PM in General Nerf

Only a few, mainly in my early days. Most just sort of wear out after about a year or more of heavy use. Anyway, whenever something does break, I just make a new part from an old dell tower case.

Posted by CD-R on 07 August 2007 - 03:14 PM in Nerf Wars

Double. Post.

"Things I learned from Apoc 2007" by Evil Angel.

- If its you vs. Vacc, just wait for Famine to intervene with friendly conversation.

- When 45 people are involved, Groove can disappear for rounds on end. I think I saw him twice all day.

- In the future, every field manager needs to bring flagging tape with them to their option fields.

- 9 z80 Nerfers are great, but I missed having 19.

- Belts or better fitting pants are a Nerf necessity.

- The Deal Curse is gone, I can play well on that field.

- Hersh has more pistols than pockets, but it doesn't stop him from trying to fit them all in his cargo shorts.

What do you guys think we should work on for our seventh Apoc in 08? If we want the day to run smoother what would you suggest?

What do you mean by 9 z80 nerfers are great, but I miss having 19?

Posted by CD-R on 07 August 2007 - 10:24 PM in Nerf Wars

Oh, like at LCM or ECNO. I am a member of z80's group, so I know what you mean now. Our real name is clan nightshift; I'm not sure how we got that name, but it works. Ironically, we were forced to stop having night games by our local police department.
P.S. next time I will try to bring my wagon.

If I remember correctly, he never pumped, never reloaded, and never fired. Never the less, he had a great time running around with everyone else.

#118284 Apoc Reaction

Posted by CD-R on 04 August 2007 - 07:56 PM in Nerf Wars

This was a great war. The fun level was over 9000 (a new record)
With that being said, my personal experiences were mixed, but ended very well. In the beginning, a failing AT3K kept me from achieving my standard level of awesome; I only got 2 kills in the first 3 rounds. However, once I got my gun situation figured out, everything picked up, and I had a great time.
Some highlights include, but are not limited to:
The ZERG IT DOWN charge during the multi-clan war
Getting ten kills during 3-15 in the forest
The mad dash through the trailers (in the end we ran through a thorn bush)
OMC's sword (and Al's theft of said sword)
Getting to work together as a whole clan

Overall, while I started out slow, this was probably the best war I've ever been to (tied with DEAL).

RAMBO smashing his gun was hilarious. But, you missed the clan nightshift ZERG IT DOWN charge. The civil war parts really portrayed the scale of the whole war, though.

This reminds me of a few of the horror stories I've heard about shipping (items showing up 1.5 years after they were ordered). Congrats on your new guns.

I play the cello.

Posted by CD-R on 25 July 2007 - 01:06 PM in Homemades

Wow, nice. I always thought something like this was possible, but laziness prevented me from trying it. Good job.
P.S. you should try working with different sealing materials and springs to see which works best.

I might be coming with z80. It depends on what my schedule for vacation is like.

#103236 Rifled Barrels

Posted by CD-R on 30 April 2007 - 07:12 PM in Homemades

I have gotten some succes with a crude method of my own design:
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.

#125537 Questions That Need Answering.

Posted by CD-R on 08 October 2007 - 10:49 PM in General Nerf

Something to think about: What sort of outside coating would work the best for sliding along the inside of barrels? (if that is a changable option if you order)

#125477 Questions That Need Answering.

Posted by CD-R on 08 October 2007 - 06:12 PM in General Nerf

How much foam does $5000 get you? I spent $40, and got 800 feet, I can't even imagine how big the container would be.

#120446 I Made A Ammo Cartridge!

Posted by CD-R on 19 August 2007 - 07:08 PM in Homemades

z80, I see what you mean, but in the wrong hands dry ice bombs are very dangerous. But then again, any experiment is dangerous. If you are REALLY stupid, it's possible to kill yourself boiling a pot of water. Now, add some high energy chemicals, or high pressure, and you've got yourself a recipe for disaster.

However, z80 is also right. When used in a safe manner, by properly trained personnel, any properly made chemical or procedure is safe.

My take on it: be careful and properly informed before trying any sort of experiment, or like telekenetic said, you can put yourself and the people around you in a lot of danger.

Now enough about this, let's all get back on topic.

#106911 Ls Clip Mod For Faster Reloading

Posted by CD-R on 21 May 2007 - 02:34 PM in Modifications

I forgot if he needed spacers or not, but one of my friends did this by just gluing three magazines together. He had two facing up, and one facing down. So basically, instead of using PVC as a spacer, he used a third magazine facing downwards.

Posted by CD-R on 14 September 2007 - 11:52 AM in Nerf Wars

Saxon woods park is a very good place to nerf; it has some very close, yet isolated areas, is never patrolled, and most of the locals never use it. THe area where we nerf most of the time is a large boulder-strewn area.
Posted Image
This picture shows only part of the field, but most of the fighting takes place on the plateau on the top of the cliff.
The other field is an area that used to be used by mountain bikers. Basically, biking is illegal in this park, so the county made the bikers demolish all of the jumps, and such, that they had created. Now, there is a large non-forested basin with remnants of jumps and other terrain features. Also, there is a wooded hillside with smaller trails running through it.

z80 is currently in Ohio, so he should be able to give you more of a plan earlier next week.
I hope this helps you guys.
Funny, Wilson and I made the exact same post, at the same time.

#107659 Water Gun Too Nerf Gun

Posted by CD-R on 26 May 2007 - 12:09 PM in Modifications

I made a sucessful conversion using an XP310, and yes, with most super soakers, a longer barrel is much better. If you're getting 65 feet with a Nightfinder barrel, than you should be able to get awesome ranges with a better material.
