I plan on being there again. My rapidstrike is being worked on a little, as is my CF spring gun. I don't have much in the way of superstock loaners, but I'll have plenty of NIC stuff if anyone needs something.
Hopefully there will be at least 1 NIC round, I have yet to take my plusbow into glorious battle. I will loan out my rainbow pistol if anyone Is brave enough to take on a hopered primary with a pistol and a speed loader albeit a fairly powerful pistol.
It already seems like the last war was a month ago but the next war is still just about 2 weeks away. I don't know about you guys but I am gearing up for it. I think that I finally got all of the kinks out of my barricade. It should be a sweet little side arm. I modified another M6. Although I don't think that my team ever won while I was using it, it did feel like cheating a little at times. So, I will have a loaner M6 out there. Hopefully I have one mod left in me before the 4th. My stryfe is currently laying everywhere. Any cheap and easy food suggestions and also any game suggestions give me a shout out. I hope to get more footage and pics to help pub the club. Come one. Come all. Bring all of your friends, and your siblings, and their siblings, and their cousins, and those people down the street.
I will be there this time, I will be bringing my superstock and NIC Loadouts. I will also bring some loaners like a stock sentinel which should keep up with lightly modded stuff in case anyone needs it.
Think I am gonna quit nerf. So far in the past 2 days I have broke one expensive blaster and one rare blaster to the point where they can't be used my rapidstrike nor will never be able to work and my alpha troopers plunger tube cracked. All because I tried to mod them both I can't keep up with the loss of money and guns nerf and really any other hobby just don't seem like something I can support anymore.
If you need any help with modding there are plenty of people to ask, this is Nerf Haven after all. Learn from your mistakes and change it up them the next go round. Also if you ever need to borrow anything i will be at the next war and would be happy to loan you some stuff or even help you out with modding basics (i myself am still learning the basics). Just don,t give up bud.
This is my Retaliator, it has a Gavinfuzzy pump grip, OMW stage 1 kit, and a Worker stock. It looks OK, works great,and is way cheaper than what you are proposing. I did the math (you're welcome) With everything it is $102.13 if you already have a stock and a retal its only $50 you have yourself a full fledged primary. If you must have internal priming just get an EAT, but i seriously wouldn't waste your money on the sig kit... just my two cents.
Thank you everyone for the suggestions. I ended up just ordering some #6 slugs from shandsgator8 and they work great. I will still however take all of your information into consideration, i definitely want to try some china darts in the future... thanks again.
Says no modded I though I have an alpha with a 8kg should I bring that? Also the next best is a modded Stryfe but I will use boom co as secondary M6 pistol btw
Guess I will bring some modded in case
It says "superstock" meaning stock blasters (not homemade) modded to be "super" so yes modded blasters are allowed.
Ok see y'all there guess I gotta break out a springer that I didn't mod probly gonna be my alpha trooper and hammershot as side arm
If I was going I would have some lightly modded stuff I could loan to you... but I won't be there.
I said in the other thread that I'd be there, so I want to check and see if this is still happening. There hasn't been a lot of interest here, have you gotten enough elsewhere?
I would love to show up I am in Houston please let me know if this is still on hard to find any nerf wars down here
I have no idea how often he checks on here, but I joined the group on Meetup and according to that, it's still happening and there are at least 17 people attending.
Worth pointing out: humidity shouldn't affect closed cell foam in any meaningful way.
As Snoop said, a lot of the barrel material we use does not have tight manufacturing tolerances on the inner diameter. You have to shop around to find CPVC that will fit your darts well.
I've heard mixed opinions on that, but what I can tell you is that after a trip to Home Depot and a trip to Ace and around 40 different test fits on cpvc I couldn't find one that had a good fit.
Plastics can fluxuate in size, its not about the area it might just be the fit overall. It depends what blaster you're firing out of and dart fit, but stronger blasters can fire thick darts out of tight barrels. Beige foam is usually thicker so you want a thicker bore barrel if it's a weaker blaster. I reccomend some .527 alu sheathed in magic, or anything thats .511 bore and above to .527 bore.
SCH 80 you have to get lucky with as some are a bit too loose, (.580 bore) while some are perfect (.511 bore)
A lot of plastic barrels you just have to get lucky with,
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I found that there were other problems going on besides just the barrel fit, but that was still a problem. I'm going to try the aluminum, thanks for your response. Also I'm a little new to the hobby and was wondering what "magic" was, thanks.
Actually, Slugs feed the most consistently, in my experience. That said, it completely depends on the blaster. My SGRL feeds /everything/, except for koosh darts.
I'm sorry if my title was not completely clear, I'm looking for a non-homemade alternative to slugs that is hopperable like captainslug's men-gun darts
I know that captainslug uses the men-gun darts, but I was wondering if anybody could present any alternatives and a reson why you like them.
Thanks in advance!
Awesome war, everyone. It was great to see so many new faces and to have such a large turnout. Sounds like I may have inspired some people to get into homemades, too. Looking forward to seeing what you guys can turn out.
In other news, whoever is missing a white Triad, send me a PM and we'll work out how to get it back to you.
Yes it was awesome RIP Triad
We're a week out!
I will try to bring some stuff to trade including a vortex drum and a bag of vortex discs. If you feel so inclined, bring stuff you would like to trade or sell as well.
If anybody has a sonic ice Retaliator they are willing to trade please bring it, I have some stuff I will bring to trade as well.
