Posted by Gears on 29 November 2016 - 03:18 PM in Darts and Barrels

Do you have any chrono data comparing these to other forms of slugs?

#355753 The Dart Zone Magnum : Review and Internals Guide

Posted by Gears on 24 August 2016 - 08:21 AM in General Nerf

Well done, Van. It makes me happy knowing there are people who understand the philosophy of a great HvZ blaster. As Ice Nine mentioned, I gushed heavily about this blaster with the Apoc-afterparty attendees.

I have full intentions of running this during my Fall Invitational circuit (Ball State/Purdue/YSU), and I'm probably going to run it stock (with the exception of removing the wrist brace, you're correct, it's terrible.)

At Apoc I ran a less exciting blaster for the majority of the day (pretty much only ran my 4B during choice rounds.) For the past five six years I have ran a UMB as my primary when not running my Crossbow. This year I ran a supa' long breech because fuck making darts. Naturally I would find magical LGLF tape the day I came home for a sub-optimal cheese speedloader.

#355431 Apocalypse 2016 - August 6th in Ocean Township, NJ

Posted by Gears on 08 August 2016 - 09:24 PM in Nerf Wars

Note: Writing this up on the plane home. Stand by for format hell.

Apoc2016 (AKA, Dicks Up, Beers Down) was undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable Apoc events of the last few years. The roster was well balanced with vets and fresh talent alike, and I couldn't be more happy. To everyone who raised their hands when Langley asked, "...if this is your first Apoc...": Keep Nerfing.

Apoc stands as the most competitive war in the entire world.

- Reuniting with the LGLF and Sex Dwarves and Twins and Mag7 and Twinks and U3.
- The informal debut of the Sweet Juice Wizards.
- Conducting said wizardry with Zorn.
- (Big) Blasting fools with Ice9 for the first time in nearly four years.
- Frequent morale boosts from OMC.
- Chicken always being extra fabulous, and the silent shattering of my heart when he was always sniped from my early picks in 3-15.
- Mystic/Instinct dominating Team Valor during the unavoidable Pokemon Go speed round.
- Breaking Ice9's world record hit by landing a 282' shot on Groove while hidden in the foliage of the crescent and he in the woods with my breeched UMB (Unapologetically Milky Butt). I went back on Sunday and measured the exact distance by finding the exact dart I shot on the ground exactly where he was hit (thankfully it wasn't dart swept), bringing my overall confirmed kills throughout the day to 1, coming out to 476(1C, 475UC)/16/0 K/D/A.
- We Are...!
- The direct correlation between levels of getting wrecked and having a blast during Dom/Chickens Wingman rounds.
- Slug!
- Entering every round mentally prepared to get ruined by the Wonder Twins. (Status: Ruined.)
- Getting a chubby over Lucian's totally cool super-pump marshmallow cannon. Gimme that STL, yo!
- Continuing my legacy as the Queen of Hearts.
- Mead.
- Popcorn.
- Harley butt.
- Activating Jlego Mode and launching myself through the air during the final Pistols/Drac Rocket VIP round of the day, and not accidentally breaking someone's face in the process.

- Suicide Squad scenes that did not involve Harley butt.
- Elevator illustrations not involving Team Freight Elevator.

Thank you Langley and Ted for putting on the event and making the event possible. I love you guys so fucking much

#355341 3D Printed Big Blast Triggers

Thank you so much for putting these together! I'll try and have a couple printed before Apoc this weekend!

Fuck, I hope so. I want to see what the lush fields of the Garden State have to offer me and my Pokedex. 

ALL the Grimer!

Tim isn't letting me come. 

#354643 Looking back at 14 years in the LGLF...

Posted by Gears on 28 June 2016 - 04:02 PM in Off Topic

I'm at work and I'm feeling emotional and this is my most favorite NerfHaven post in the entire world.

I love you guys so much. 



I love this clan, and the people who are in it.  It's been an incredible 14 year journey and I wouldn't trade it for anything.  I know we're scattered all over the country now, and I'm well past my nerf expiration date, but I'll keep going if you do.  Thanks guys. 



I'll try to keep up.

#354467 Philadelphia Area Nerf War - July 31st - SuperStock only!

Would you be interested in doing an NIC war at this location some time in the future?

#354439 Indianerfolis 2016

Posted by Gears on 21 June 2016 - 04:05 PM in Nerf Wars

Sorry I had a real rough time adulting today at work and now that Hoongfu isn't going I just can't even... 

At least there is NvZ! Effeminate HvZ FTW!!!!

#354408 Indianerfolis 2016

Posted by Gears on 20 June 2016 - 09:27 PM in Nerf Wars

Dang I can't come anymore :(   Sorry!

Dang! Then you can COUNT ME OUT.

#354219 Indianerfolis 2016

Posted by Gears on 15 June 2016 - 09:51 AM in Nerf Wars

I'll probably come if Hoongfu does.

As always, apologies for the terrible nighttime cellphone shots:

My finshed Sceptor, 4JAX-style. A 4SJAX:


And a quick project I threw together for a war this weekend. A Supermaxx 5000 (SM5K) with a BRISC.

#353569 Michigan Interest?

Posted by Gears on 18 May 2016 - 02:56 PM in Nerf Wars

What kind of war have you decided to host? NIC/DIY? Superstock? I think that's going to be the deciding factor for a lot of people.

I'm from Chicago.

#353565 Nerf Wars Pictures/Footage Thread

Posted by Gears on 18 May 2016 - 12:20 PM in Nerf Wars

Photographic proof that Season of Foam was once a thing:


And here is a group shot from the second war Ice hosted in Springfield, PA. It was the second of nearly 20+ wars hosted at that park before eventually relocating to Smedley.

December 2009: 


And finally, here is an action shot from my second most favorite war of last year, Beaver's summer SPANO 2015. The field was excellent, and it was the first time I got to play with some faces I hadn't seen since Cataclysm a few years ago. An excellent war with excellent Nerfers.

June 2015:

#353220 Michigan Interest?

Posted by Gears on 03 May 2016 - 01:27 PM in Nerf Wars

I would be interested in attending a war with only modded nerf guns. I probably won't remember this later, though.


Same. I'd drive as far as Grand Rapids for a legit NIC war.

#349320 [OH] Hell Before Halloween III

Posted by Gears on 26 October 2015 - 12:02 PM in Nerf Wars

Woo! What a good day I went to a bar and drank.

You missed a great war I got to see Coop772 and even though he wouldn't take a selfie with me and wouldn't pick me to be on his team it was presence was indeed a present.

#349319 [IL] Halloween Hangover - Chicago!

Posted by Gears on 26 October 2015 - 11:58 AM in Nerf Wars

@Pineapplepies - Stock ammo more refers to no stefans or things that can hurt, I'll check em out at the war.

So is that a yes or no to China darts?

#348997 Tacticool Chest Rig

Nerf magazines will not fit M4 pouches.

They will fit AK/7.62s doe.

#348877 Happy Birthday Langley

One week to go, dudes. I hope everyone is pumped for the imminent Sandstorm.

#348574 OMW or Xplorer

Posted by Gears on 29 August 2015 - 08:20 PM in Modifications

Xplorer parts are most proprietary.

If you have the money to sling around, I would recommend an OMW kit. Very Elite-friendly.

[http://nerfhaven.com...entry348504]6th [IL] TACTIFOAM[/url]


Posted by Gears on 24 August 2015 - 03:36 PM in Nerf Wars

Posted Image

Come and celebrate the six month anniversary of the SCNW Club, Chicago's premiere group of superstock war-goers and enthusiasts.

This event will be a first for us, an indoor war at Laser X, located approximately thirty minutes outside Chicago, a multifloor laser tag arena where we will be free to fling foam and run exciting CQB games. Because this is a private venue, there is a price per head, which will not exceed $30. The attendance level will be what determines if the price declines, but expect to either pay $30 at the door, or Paypal ahead of time.

Who: The Southwest Chicago Suburban Nerf Wars Club
What: Indoor Laser Tag Arena, Nerf Blasters, Good Times
Where: Laser X, Addison IL
When: Sunday, September 6th, from 8am-2pm
How (much): This is a paid event. $30 a head for a six hour block on rounds.

Rules: General superstock fare. Darts will be provided courtesy of the SCSNW Club. Yes, your Vortex and Rival blasters are fair game.

I think this is going to be a fun war.

#348284 GnomeFEST 2015

Posted by Gears on 07 August 2015 - 08:55 PM in Nerf Wars

Give me a week to recover from last weekend before I buy another plane ticket. I'll probably be there, assuming I can snag a pick-up from the Philly airport again.


Posted by Gears on 07 August 2015 - 08:52 PM in Nerf Wars

Hey guys! Sorry for the let down, but this war is effectively canceled so that I may put forth all efforts toward attending GnomeFEST.

Thanks for your interest, everyone! Let's do something in November!

Posted by Gears on 04 August 2015 - 10:41 AM in Nerf Wars

These pics are fucking dope. Can't wait to see gameplay footage on top of the always awesome shots from Zorn.

#348187 Apocalypse 2015 - Recapping on page 5

Posted by Gears on 02 August 2015 - 06:29 PM in Nerf Wars

Damn that war was hella good, shaka brah!

Thanks to everyone who came it was a real treat. My MVPs have to go to Chicken, Nick, and The Twins. It was a perfect war to come back from the dead to. Getting to throw down with my Gnomies and the Mongols has never been so satisfying. Looking forward to seeing everyone in their respective regions soon!
