Word-- thanks everyone for the recs!
One more question-- is there a good source for springs? I see people really going to town with 10kg+. Is there a particular website or page with gun+springs compatibility?
I'll be looking into those Buzzbee blasters and that Sledge.
I also love how people are making a little bit of money by selling modded guns/ kits/ homemades. Love that entrepreneurship.
Hi all! I'm an ancient Nerfer from the NerfOnline and NerfHQ glory days. I made this NH account when I was 13 years old. I'm now 27. And that itch to Nerf just won't go away.... Jesus I'm old.
All of the guns are spring-loaded now?! Guns have electronics and motors wtf? Has anyone utilized 3D printing?! I have so many questions.
But first-- What's your gun of choice for basic modding? I'm looking for something powerful and *accurate* that will leave a real welt. ROF doesn't matter to me-- whatever is beastly.
Currently I have these with basic AR & spring mods:
Sharpfire 5kg spring
Big Shock 5kg spring & crayola (crayola FTW)
It's so much fun being an adult with cash and time to splurge on this shit. Cheers everybody.
It's Wads15, back from the dark ages of nerfonline and nerfcenter and nerf hq. How's everything been lately? I've been in and out of the nerf scene, seeing how Stanford University academics and extracurriculars eat up all of my spare time. I did manage to spread the wealth when I arrived here 2 years ago (that's right I'm a sophomore in college now!) when I managed to bring a duffel bag of assorted nerf guns (LnL, BBB, 3 SplitFires, 2 at2k, RF20, vortex launchers) to school with me.
I've got a shit ton of guns NIB, MIB, lightly and heavily modded back at home gathering dust. I'm thinking of selling on eBay when the pricing is high. haha
So I'm in CA for the next 2.5 years! Hit me up if you're planning some cool event or raze the Stanford campus.
Hoping to muster up some replies,
How are all of you old fellows who might remember me?
What's up with college acceptances and the like? (EXCITEMENT--I'm going to Stanford!!)
How are the next waves of Nerf blasters holding up?
How's life in general?
Anyway, talk to you guys later (hopefully!)..... and if you'd like, hook me up at Xboxdude1 AIM style.
Okay, so my buds and I bust out the PCs. Everything goes fine and then one of these beasts starts to "skip." This foam-shooting-piece-of-plastic has only had the removable clip and air restrictor mods... no air bladder reductions or whatnot. So, whats wrong? I narrowed it down to the green "piston" being a bitch.... and that's where yall come in.... any help is appreciated!
Yes. I've seen some a few 4Ks at 12.49 or something next to that. I'll go to TRU in Albuquerque... 1 hour drive. They have Max Shots and AT2Ks. Hey, it's for a good cause . TIME FOR HOARDING! There should be a national holiday for hoarding...
AT3k rings up at $7.49 now.
EDIT- Ah ha! Amazon is cutting prices, too! (figures)
Here here. You just can't beat them Japanese cars... tough lil' buggers... and congrats... I guess.
Pontiac doesn't exactly have the... shall we say, "longevity reputation" that cars from Japanese makers tend to have. Good luck with it, but don't be surprised if the engine doesn't make it very far before breaking in one way or another.
So it was YOU who posted that. I remembered seeing that last year... I missed it.
Yeah, I posted this at NO along time ago. But hey, Im glad someone brought it up. I was trying to find that thing. Now... if only the gun in Duck Hunt shot Nerf darts...
For some reason, I knew that... weird. Plus, the Mrs, Pac Man I play has a special chip that makes the game freakishly fast! Much better!
You're not out of the loop, this is vintage entertainment.
Multi-Arcade Machine Emulator
It faithfully emulates a whole assload of obsolete arcade game hardware. Currently supports nearly 4000 ROM images. More or less anything that existed in an arcade prior to the late 90s will play on MAME.
It's pretty cool for people who actually played those games because you're not playing a re-write of Pacman or Centipede, you're playing the actual original code. Serious old skool arcade nuts won't settle for playing it on a PC because the atmosphere (and proper controller hardware) just isn't there.
Hence my quest... to find a vintage arcade cabinet, slap a high-end PC in it, and buy some OEM arcade joysticks and buttons to build a control panel versatile enough to play most anything.
