Its seems like feeding problems would only occur with greater weight, especially in your case with 20 barrels instead of ten. I haven't tried it on my MS, but with a 10 shot clip it works fine on the PC. Is it possible the PC has stronger plastic than the MS?
Sorry to barge on on the thread everyone but i just wanted to tell bigbob that he needs to clear his PM box. Thanks.
Another thing about the crossbow is that they will actually be worth more than what you bought it at when you go to re-sell it. I anticipate the Longshot to be in the market for a good 2-3 years longer, so you shoud have no problems finding them.
Ranges aside, the crossbow is probably the most comfortable gun ever made. From what i've heared about the Longshot is that it is pretty damn bulky. The Crossbow with a few mods isn't going to weigh more than a couple pounds.
Infact, if you want you can borrow my gun boxed pictures.
Ohh i know that Nerf is WAAAY ahead of the competition. Nerf has practically perfected the engineering behind each and ever model. I for one went out and bought a few Double shots. The whole shotgun thing is just really awesome and IMO is ahead of its time. Its the first gun that i have bought new for myself since 2002.
Stallion, normally I agree with everything you say, but in this case I don't think you are totally right. Nerf is 1000 years ahead of the competition. Buzz Bee wishes they had the market share, creativity and overall sales that Hasbro has. They cannot hold a candle to the stuff Hasbro has put out and is working on.
From my discussions with the folks over there, it's clear to me that they don't even consider other toy companies competition, let alone a threat. What motivates Hasbro is every year going above and beyond what they put out the year before. They push themselves to be the best. They are proactive.
That said, that Tommy 20 looks pretty kickass. It's a novelty worth having, like the Double Shot, or the Rapid Fire Rifle. The LBB ripoff looks promising....
Just a few short years ago all Nerf was doing was throwing old ideas inside new shells. As good as the 2001-2003 guns were, most of them were just re-makes. I don't know if it is coincidence that right after the Lanard guns came out that Nerf starting stepping their game up.
I know i don't want to sound like a know it all (because believe me, I'm FAAAR from it) but do you honestley believe they would tell you that they consider their competition a threat? Do you think those at Hot Wheels would tell their loyals customers that Matchbox cars were forcing them to step their game up? I know i wasn't there and i didn't witness anything with my own eyes, but I just believe that seeing those guns like the Max Shot really fired some of those guys up. Whether they would admit it or not.
That being said, Nerf is and always will be the leader in Foam shooting guns.
I just looked over there today and noticed that it was updated on january 1. I don't know if anyone here on NH noticed(searched, but found nothing), but i know this is news to me today.
I literally went "holy shit" when I saw that. Its not like its a big deal or anything because we all know Andy isn't going to do anything, its just strange to see a new message there after 5 years of nothing and 3 years of no forums. I know its a pipe dream that they would he would either let someone else take control of it or keep up with the new stuff.
Just figured id let everyone know..
Its actually a pretty decent gun. Ive owned 3 in my lifetime and all of them have been very durable little guns.
Anima is THE original painter. He pretty much started the "lets paint our Mavericks" fad.
I take back everything negative I've said about painted blasters. That thing is cool as hell.
Again, however, might be a little impracticle for me to use.
That SSII is freeking sweet. Nice job.
