#300325 Calgary area nerfers

Posted by k9turrent on 21 June 2011 - 09:33 PM in Nerf Wars

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.

#297617 Improving accuracy and precision

Posted by k9turrent on 27 April 2011 - 01:48 PM in Darts and Barrels

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.

#295187 High Volume Springer, Easy To Make And Cheap Version Of +bows And Snap

Posted by k9turrent on 01 March 2011 - 10:04 AM in Modifications

I like it!

Mind I was trying to the exact same a couple months ago, but my plunger rod and catch combo was agreeing so the project got the backburner.



#294502 Too Much Friction

AT2k stuffed into a Tommy20

Rear loading cause I can.
Posted Image

Yes that was a propane tank you saw.
Posted Image


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.

#294183 Official Steam/pc Gaming Thread

Posted by k9turrent on 08 February 2011 - 12:54 PM in Off Topic

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.



#294137 Slugs And Domes And Taggers, Oh My!

Posted by k9turrent on 07 February 2011 - 11:32 PM in General Nerf

Copyapasta from the other forums:


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.



#294076 Official Steam/pc Gaming Thread

Posted by k9turrent on 07 February 2011 - 03:45 PM in Off Topic

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.

~Nrg


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:
Sidewinder X3
It's comfy and takes a beating, plus you can get them cheap

Perhaps you didn't account for the compression length of the springs, move your trigger forward

Well if it counts for anything, the Canadian group has been calling the LSG for the Lanard ShotGun

#289487 Barrel Tapping - A Cheap Shot?

Posted by k9turrent on 30 November 2010 - 12:59 PM in General Nerf

For my understanding of the GTA Canadian rules.

You need a dart in the barrel, to tap.

And you need to have a turret/clip that holds multiple darts to tap.

IE.

A AT2k gives you four consecutive barrel taps

Dual-wielding singled NFs would allow two consecutive barrel taps

#288848 Nerf In The News

Posted by k9turrent on 24 November 2010 - 09:50 PM in General Nerf

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?

#288795 Primary And Secondary?

Posted by k9turrent on 23 November 2010 - 11:07 PM in General Nerf

Well this is my "secondary" pistol, It houses a BS tank and it punches out 80ft and it is usually tucked inside my jacket.

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

Keep the trigger and grip exactly where they are... I wouldn't call it backwards at all.

Assuming I'm not blind, that would make you shoot yourself.


Stick a RSCB on top of that bastard and you got an Effeminate and a half gun

#287802 We Report Range, Why Not Velocity?

Posted by k9turrent on 01 November 2010 - 10:09 PM in Off Topic

http://en.wikipedia....ojectile_speeds
http://en.wikipedia....ojectile_motion

Our darts are relatively low mass and it has been noted that a single titan has clocked over 300ft/s (204 mph)

Not a good mix if you want to keep a constant speed.



#287797 We Report Range, Why Not Velocity?

Posted by k9turrent on 01 November 2010 - 09:46 PM in Off Topic

Also, as mentioned, B) 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)
Posted Image
*induced drag does not apply to darts*

Since:
As the speed increases, drag increases.

Therefore:
The drag is not a constant.

#287792 We Report Range, Why Not Velocity?

Posted by k9turrent on 01 November 2010 - 09:28 PM in Off Topic

TL;DR

But are you assuming that there is no loss of energy due to friction?
If so, you fucked up

But good job for being able to apply your Gr 11 physics to nerf.
