Don't cut or burn your self. Don't inhale solvents and adhesives.
Good idea for a post, but if people need to be told these things I say let Darwin have a whack at em.
No offense, but everything apart from the CS-6 recall is very basic safety and usually written in big red text all over the tool/product. Nerfer's parents shouldn't let them near things like saws, x-actos and hot glue guns if they haven't been told this stuff already. The CS-6 recall could be useful for a parent but not so much for an active nerfer/modder. A thread just for stock gun hazards and recalls could be a good idea, though, just for people with kids.
My first guess is that your darts aren't heavy enough for the increased force. I've never been able to get stock darts to match Stephans for range or accuracy in any gun with real power.
Obviously check all your seals, make sure the hot glue didn't pop off or crack anywhere.
As for the Tampon Applicator, man I hope that was new and not used.
Does the tampon applicator only hold the dart snug at the back of the barrel? If the dart isn't snug all the way out the friction won't allow the pressure to build as the spring expands (where as an air-tank gun pretty much is at full pressure as soon as the valve opens). You could be losing a lot of air pressure in the barrel once the dart comes out of the tampon applicator.
PS. Got any touristing suggestions for this area?
But I'll discuss it with the folks this evening since its a family vacation. If I could get a rental car (under their name, no way Im getting one at 19 lol) and maybe make the drive the night before and stay with somebody or in a motel I might be able to make it work. I mean, heck, I just drove almost that far to ride skis with a couple of friends last weekend.
Man, I haven't nerfed in so long, if I show I'm going to get blasted. It'll be PE all over again when it comes to pick teams.
Sorry, but woah am I excited about this discovery.
I got my wisdom teeth out monday, so I've been spending all week surfing the net, figured I'd stop in and see what's up with my old sport.
How is everyone? Still doing Armageddon and all that jazz? Any hot new mods that the young bucks have thought up?
Sorry, I'm being weird. Painkillers and what not.
I haven't touched a nerf gun all summer. It's shocking, considering how much modding I did this winter, but none of my friends really are into it anymore, and I've found something else to consume my time/money.
Freestyle Watercross. Yeah, I got that SuperJet I was talking about before I left, and it's everything I hoped. I can do a few tricks, like bulldogs, fountains, 180s, tailstands, and subs. My new online haunt is PWCToday.
There was an event thrown together by the riders recently, big ride at my local lake. It was rad. See the video here.
Anyways, I was just saying hello. Hope all is well in the nerf world. One of these days I'm going ot become interested in a sport that isn't gasping for breath. And hey, if any of you are riding in GA, let me know. Maybe we can work out a game of nerf on skis.
I don't want a Waverunner because I want to ride freestyle. Waverunners aren't bad boats, but no sitdown can compare to a standup in freestyle. Sitdowns aren't nearly as fun and require a lot less skill to ride.
Leon (The Professional)
The Boondock Saints
and it's prequil El Mariachi
and its sequil (by far the worst of the 3) Once Upon a Time In Mexico
Romancing the Stone
Snatch (Definitely a must see.)
and along with that Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrles, which is by the same writer/director
The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi
Lawrence of Arabia
As Good As It Gets
I also reccomend (as just good movies) The Big Lebowski, The Shawshank Redemption (A must see if you havent), SLC Punk!, Adaptation, Fight Club, and Super Troopers.
In terms of classic quality, if you havent seen Cool Hand Luke, you need to. It's probably one of, if not my #1 favorite old movie.
Drew Carry Show had some sort of nerf blaster, cant remember what.
Also have seen Nerf on Friends.
There might be a few others I've forgotten. Nerf guns tend to show up on network TV. I would love to raid their prop room some time.
Actually it depends on the hardware and software the player uses. Sound quality can be VERY different between brands.I'm not a huge creative fan myself. To the sound quality remark, that's gotta be bullshit. It should only depend on the headphones, files and possibly the headphone jacks [the only thing that may differ between brands] and not vary "much much" between brands. That's bullshit.
i recently bought a Zen Touch from creative and it is the same as an I-pod just a little bigger and a lot cheaper.
and the sound quality is much much better.
look in google or sumthing for reviews in the ipod
Apples products are expensive. All the time. Go with a company that doesnt pay to have their stuff advertised in other advertisements and you'll save money and lose little in terms of satisfaction.
I still want to kill Apple for their little "Vampire Hunter Playlist" plug in Blade Trinity. Because we all know that having earbuds in wouldnt help Vampires sneak up on you or anything.
It's well under a year old, and the book says its warranted against defects for two years. Im calling this a defect and just going to send it back.
I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for loostening the tip or how to fix it.
I opened it up, and the way it works is there are two holes in the cylinder that the button pokes into, and they have somehow gotten stripped a little. Oh well, I wonder what the warranty on these things is like.
So of course my friend was hit by a guy who figured he could go around corners at 40 even when the roads were frozen, but hes fine.
Then my other friend slid into a telephone pole.
Atlanta drivers are shitty to begin with. Add ice and you have a margarita of doom.
Then my car froze to death. Which is weird, but for some reason the electronics all spazzed tonight in the cold and I got to walk 2 miles with nothing but a leather jacket.
*sings* It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Dont just take the air restrictors out. Drill them clear and then put them back in so that gap isnt there.
I noticed that once the air restrictors were taken out, there was a big gap between the source of the air and the dart. Is that what you're talkin about when you say to put foam in there and make sure there's a hole so the air can get out of?
They are talking about putting craft sheet where the cylinder meets the plunger, like on a powerclip. It helps form a seal while still allowing the barrels to rotate.
