Either or, it would be a good time.

So as some of you may know I've returned after a long hiatus from nerf, I'm just curious what the state of nerfers is like in the Calgary/southern Alberta area and if there's any interest in having a war this July ish.
Also, what about 'telescoping barrels', such as 6" of CPVC at the breech end, hammered into 12" of PVC? I would think that extra air would be able to escape around the side of the barrel in a more controlled fashion, and evenly around the dart so it doesn't destabilize it.
Well, I have two barrels that come to mind:
1. I got titan with a 10" petg barrel in a 24" pvc sheath. It feels like that the darts are firing more consistent, and I don't recall any fish tailing out of the barrel; I have seen seen it happen coming out of BBBB regularly.
2. On the same titan, I have an 3-shot inline shotgun barrel, 5" petg in 8" pvc, so the grouping appears to be tighter than with a 5" pvc sheath.

Rear loading cause I can.
Yes that was a propane tank you saw.
The tank runs at 60 PSI, Lasts for ~25 shots. Hits at least 90ft.
If you are gonna use a hard tank, use a bank of converted propane tanks. They are safer and also have a built in PRV that is set at ~250psi.
The only problem I see with the Sidewinder X3 is that the side buttons are quite inconvenient...
I was thinking either the Logitech MX518 or the Razer Deathadder. Even though they're quite a bit more, they're suited to what I need, however I don't know which one to get as they are both reasonably good mice. Any other suggestions?
Well I had added hot glue domes to the side buttons. Makes it easier to hit the buttons, but I still haven't really used them yet.
WHY HEAVY WEIGHTED STEFANS ARE RECOMMENDED: (3/0 and 1/4" weights are the same mass)
- More accurate/consistent
- You know that you hit.
- Less likely that the darts will hook up and nail you in the face
- "Man up, girly-man"
WHY MARSHMALLOWS ARE DISCOURAGED:
- lack of re-usability
- Crusty ass barrels
- Too many would be eaten
To sum up vast majority of the opinion of the Canadian nerf scene.
WHY SLUGS ARE DISCOURAGED:
"90% of the Slugs that have appeared North of the border, have all sucked ass. So it's easier to ban them all than weed out the good ones"
WHY Glue Domes w/washers ARE DISCOURAGED:
- Exposed metal, there is a line between taking a welt and getting cut
At Massacre (a 175ft by 80ft gym) All the darts that were used were 3/0 and 1/4". We had fun, we had children at this war and we took our shots like a champ.
Probably going to get a gaming mouse soon. I really need some suggestions as I like too many of them. Also, will all those flashy mice with LEDs and crap work on laptops? Don't know whether my USB ports on this laptop are powered or not. Thanks.
USB ports since at least 2001 have been powered, no issue there.
If you need a "gaming" mouse, avoid most wireless mice, There is an inherent amount of lag.
My personal mouse:
It's comfy and takes a beating, plus you can get them cheap
So here is the menu:
$3 - Sandwich (Roast beef/Turkey)
$2 - Drinks (Pepsi/Water)
$5 - Combo (Sandwich, Drink, Goodies)
Those that are interested, I need to hear your orders by 11:59Pm on Thursday.
PM me either here on the Haven or CanNerf
You need a dart in the barrel, to tap.
And you need to have a turret/clip that holds multiple darts to tap.
A AT2k gives you four consecutive barrel taps
Dual-wielding singled NFs would allow two consecutive barrel taps
NOT TRYING TO HIJACK THE THREAD NOR PISS OFF MODMAN BUT THIS IS A VERRY CLEAN VERSION OF THE MOST RECENT DEVELOPMENT IN HOMEMADE TRIGGER DESIGNS
I'd believe that some people would be dumb enough to nerf without eye protection considering there are those that are dumb enough to post comments that DO NOT help our stand that this is a safe hobby...
I was almost blinded in my left eye (my shooting eye) by a modified nitefinder from about 15 ft away. I have been wearing eye protection ever since.
This was the post they referenced, this clearly isn't the worst injury in the thread.
And who is the douche wearing tacti-cool crap hosting a war and talking the press?
I've actually use the pistol before my LSG cause if should I need to switch guns (2 secs)
- I rather rather have that gap before the getting close to the other guy
- If the other guy knows I only have a single shot pistol left, He probably would be as scared if it was the LSG
Also, as mentioned, since we are not going to Nerf in space (as awsome as that would be), the air resistance will be constant, therefore the equation need not take it into account. If you ever have a bullet stop in mid flight, then drop straight down, let me know, and I will make a new euqation.
Drag (air friction)
*induced drag does not apply to darts*
As the speed increases, drag increases.
The drag is not a constant.
