Check it out. Luck or skill?
(oh and for all of you people who are going to say "she must have tried a bunch of times to get it", I have the continuous shot footage still. Got it on the 4th try. If people want to see it I can upload the continuous shot.)
That's really cool. I believe I saw the same Craigslist entry - Chico, if I remember correctly. In my high school days, I drove up to Chico many times, but that was from Sacramento. I considered making the much longer trip from here - the very same long drive KDizzle has accomplished - but my schedules would not permit it. And, I must admit, my interest as a collector was not sufficient to reschedule my other activities. I was sad. Mostly, sad that this rare find would probably disappear again into the obscurity of the unknown, perhaps never again to be appreciated by true enthusiasts.
It's a tiny thing to me, but today that sadness has been replaced with an equivalent joy. Yay!
I can understand treating the set with reverence and displaying it from a place of honor, but even in stock form ... you must have tested them at least a little?
Aww! Bob were you the "other person interested"? I was planning on making a nice fun trip to Chico with Camille and Jordan, but when I found out there was someone else interested in the blasters I busted a mission that night after I got off work at 1:30am. I drove to San Jose to pick up a friend and we left by like 2:30. We didn't get to Chico until a little past 5:00am. Then I had to jam back to drop off my friend and make it back to Hayward for class at 9:20. Dang you Bob!
I took a look at one around here that's huge and locally famous, and the few vendors who had nerf and nerf-like stuff were charging way too much for what they had. Like $25 Longshots, and $4 Fei Xiang knock offs. I didn't actually spot any old stuff. Though maybe I gave up too soon; I wasn't feeling great that day and the smokers were out in numbers, since the whole thing is held in a huge lot that used to be drive-in theaters, and smoking seemed to be generally allowed. (Which, by the way, is fine with me - I just don't want to be breathing it)
you must have been out there on 4-20 Bob. haha. Are you talking about the one near century on capitol? The flea market on tully is much better. Hardware and tools are much cheaper at the flea market rather then the guns thenselves.
For this upcoming sat unfortunately I have work and was unable to get the night off. My grandfather recently fell ill and was in the hosptial for a few days up until he passed away on the 12th. I called in a lot of favors to be with my grandpa and family durring that time. So you have 2 options. You can choose to still have the war in which case Camille will probably be the host (if shes up for it) or you can choose to move it to another day in which I can request off and will be able to attend. I'm so sorry and I would totally rather be there nerfing my heart out all night long.
Big thanks to Redmark for stepping up and not only coming through to make it to the war but for bringing 4 others with him. That was awesome.
Other things that were good:
-The bathrooms in the buiding were open
-The break for pizza was perfect not only for us to refuel but to do a little trading and for the parents who have just been hanging out to grab a slice.
-The weather was better then I could have hoped for
-Getting lots of play time it and a good chunk of trade and chit chat at the end
Some things to improve:
-Get more people out to play
-Be able to play in the inside hallway without numerous middle aged asain men staring at us
if the weather holds up like it was today we should be in good shape. It will be chilly for sure so I'd suggest to dress in layers. Keep a jecket for those long breaks in the out area waiting for a round to finnish up, and maybe a longsleeve or a hoodie for game play. I'd also wear shoes with pretty good tread on them because the grass, curbs and even some of the pavement could be slick from the rain. Just a suggestion. Also remeber ot bring a few bucks to throw in for pizza. See you then.
Just a question that may determine me coming, how late do you people play till? I have practice from 9 to 5 that day, but if I can drive down and get some strong nerfing time in I might be able to come.
it really just depends on when everyone gets tired. Since we've planned a food and rest break I presume we would be going pretty late. We've been known to nerf well past 1am so even if you get there by 10 I think you'd be able to join the action for a signifficant amount of time.
Put me down as a maybe. Things happend so I might be going alone this time. I'll try my best to bring atleast 1 friend if I make it.
aww alright, I really hope you can come. No pressure to bring anyone else I mean more people will only make it better ,and it would probably be nice to have the company for the drive but no worries. Just you and your "A" game would do. Let me know about your status.
Since hosting last time we’ve learned and tweaked a few things.
-My friend is talking to the manager of the coffee shop to see if we can use the bathrooms and such during and/or after play.
-We will be adding obstacles to the empty parking lots in the back. (Covered parked cars, etc)
-There will be a few tables in the staging area for placing guns, darts, and other misc. items.
-One of our local nerfers, either myself or another Supernova team member will/can collect money and grab some pizzas and sodas for a pizza break for those who wish to have one.
Naturally, there are things we love to keep. It's still a night war, hoping for a high turn out of nerfhaven community and locals, plenty of obstacles and different games.
We’ve chosen another Saturday, mainly because although shops close earlier on Sunday there are usually still people walking around till at least 7 anyways. We will start game play at 7:30pm. Though this doesn’t mean you have to be there exactly at 7, please realize that if you come significantly later those who showed up on time may not want to stay late to play to compensate. We’re not planning an early meet up beforehand, but feel free to if you want to trade or just chat it up.
Date: Saturday March 7th
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Lunardi's square, San Jose ca
The square’s middle part has a fountain and some benches, that will be our staging and "out" area. The front side is full of pillars coves and lots of tactical places to hide.
-just some bob
-bill (+1 maybe)
-As last time, eye protection is at your disgression- regardless of age. You should know what your getting yourself into and you play at your own risk. We are not going to baby people and make them wear protection if they don't want to.
-Banned guns are on a case by case basis. If myself or one of my teammates feels your gun would be potentially harmful it will not be allowed so as always bring a back up. Because of the unique parameters of the site close combat will happen often so it's recommended to have a secondary or integration ready with shorter ranges for close quarter hits.
-Games and specifics to each game will be determined on site.
-Bring your own darts that work best in your own gun (recommended about 50 or so). All weights for stefans have to be covered completely. (Note: Last time we found multiple darts with screws as weights with no covers. If we find this happening this time we will stop game play and do a dart check for safety’s sake.)
This has been a supernova production.
- its a good start but if you paint the shells whail the gun is open then it’s a lot easier to get the spray paint in the hard to reach spots like under the dart holder.
-good mod, but make sure you are as accurate as you can be with ranges because tacking on a few extra feet is a no no.
-try to look around next time before you post, there is a big thread for paint jobs and modifications. New threads are usually for innovative mods that haven't been done before.
I have learned from my experience. Stop trying to sway people from my war. The entire world is not focused on SJNO or you for that matter. I am not going to change the date so you can come, just cause' I screwed up once doesn't mean that I'll do it again or that you should host the war.
Whoa whoa whoa. I wasn't tring to get people to not go to your war and I apologize if it came across that way. I wasn't expecting you to change the date for me or for anyone else for that matter. To clear up any bad blood or misunderstandings, I do support your war and I have nothing aginst you. Anyone who loves nerf and loves going out and nerfing, which its apparent youre passionate about, is pretty awesome in my book. Besides I love going to Tracy for sonics!
Nerfing (really awesome) + Sonics (really awesome) = Shit your pants flip a bitch amazing!
Absolutely. We had 8 at the first DCNO. Now it's a major east coast war attracting large crowds. Do SJNO, but if you won't show up to a nerf war because there will only be 6 people there then I don't think you can even call yourself a nerfer. And let me put one more thing out there. If you're attendance is hinged upon mine, then we have a problem. Because it tells where you're teams motivation lies and it's not in the mere fun of nerfing.
So my point is, if you have a whole team that can drive an hour from San Jose to get to a nerf war, pull up your big boy undies and get the team there whether I'm gonna be there or not.
Officially now that I know there is interest I'm going to try to make it work. Maybe not in February, but I will make it happen. All of you need to get out there in February and play or stop calling yourself nerfers.
The very first war I went to was hosted by nerfer9. There was only 6 people, 3 of whom were myself and the 2 friends I brought. It was a blast from the car ride up, to playing, to checking out eachothers stuff. My concern isn't with the number of people in attendance its with the organization and professionalism of how it will be run. Don't get me mistaken my team loves to nerf and were out doing so everyother night even before we knew what modifing a gun meant, but going to a war and getting a 3k shot at our face from point blank range not durring a war game isnt wat we want.
Anyways I guess it dosent matter because I was just reminded that I had already comitted to go to my co-workes baby shower on feb 7th. If there is anything I can to to help this war be a success then plase let me know. If for some reason the date gets moved I atleast (not sure bout my other 2 teammates) would surely attend
Me and Camizzie really like to snow board. So for xmas this year kdizzle decided to make something extra special for her best friend
I came up with this....
its a storage unit for her to sore all of her snow gear. I built it from scratch put it together, painted it, installed red rope light, and made a removable curtain. (here it is shown with my gear in it)
some upclose images
As far as FMNO we will be attending, but if its just going to be us then I dont know if its going to happen. I suggest you guys come and see how haven wars are supposed to be (in the morning, in an open field) SJNO was really different from anything else here.
In war related, please plan another!
guns of that magnitude would be banned from play and I would suggest you not even bring it so some idoit dosen't shoot it and accidently hurt something or someone. Anyhoo we are going to plan another so be on the look out for another thread.
This war kicked ass.
Thanks to the hosts for bringing the colored duct tape it worked amazingly even under the bizarre yellow lights. I'd love to push for an earlier war, (with breaks for food and stuff) so that it lasts longer! Everyone was wiped by 11:20 haha. Also maybe a couple short games to compliment those legit long ones? I was STUNNED how many darts came back to me.
San Jose Nerf / Team Supernova; get online! we need more normal people Nerfers.
MVP weapon of the night was DEFINATELY the LS/DTB combo. Redmark kicked some ass with that magstrike too though.
Overall way to fucking host.
I was also suprised at how fast time went by. It was 11:00 before I even knew it. Anearlier start would be nice we just have to be concious that it is a public shopping center and we usully start late so the shops are closed and there are little people around. Durring our war though there was an unsusal amount of non nerfers becasue Burrito Azteca was having some sort of party. Next time though I'm sure if we got together at 6:30 and started around 7 it would be fine. I wouldn't be against a pizza run ethire. I was starving after we all left! thanks for coming!
-having a good amount of people show up
-the rain held off
-shooting almost an entire team on my own within about a min
-getting to meet haven mambers for the 1st (and 2nd time)
-getting in a lot of games
-not loseing a ton of darts
-having a ton of fun in general
-having 5 girls there to kick ass
-the duct tape to distinguish teams worked like a charm
-long intro to house rules
-it was super cold
all in all it was sweet! We were thinging about having another one at around the end of feb. Does that sound alright to anyone else? Next time for sure we are going to bring a table to set guns, darts and other things on instead of jsut throwing them on the ground. We are also going to park our cars at different angles along the back parking lot and cover them with huge blankets so there is something to hide behind and give the parking lot a little boost. If its cold we were also thinking it would be a good idea to bring a big pump thermos thing of hot coco.
Anyways, just some thoughts. Hope to see you all soon!
There is a coffee shop called java junction in the little cirlce or if you go down the hill about a mile there is a Carl's Jr on Quimby and White rd. that might be a good spot. People will be arriving at all times, (the most of them on time but late comers aren't extremely erotic) so if we want to start early, you guys can leave whenever you want so you dont have to make your drive in the wee hours in the morning.
