#275246 The Road To Deal.

I thought I smelled Chicago in my state.

Have you tried using rubber corks for plungers yet? I've had varying success with them.

#252358 Nerf-o-ween

Posted by bobafan on 02 October 2009 - 12:16 AM in Nerf Wars

The likelyhood of my appearance has escalated, but is still a maybe. Assuming don't die of swine flu in the next few days I'll be able to finally get my license.

#236436 Raider Preview

Shut the fuck up about ice, he doesn't have to be doing this and he just paid twice what the MSRP is probably going to be.

@bigred dry firing with massive air restricters isn't going to do much

15:45] ice: tell talio I was sorry he had to hear me nerfgasum lol

I will post more information as I get it.

@Wisp: He says it's more like a Longshot than a recon and there is no turning needed.

video is up on youtube: http://www.youtube.c...yer_profilepage

ice: boltsled is not affected by plunger, just the metal rod, so it will not snap under pressure of springs
22 screws without the stock

#236422 Raider Preview

Posted by bobafan on 15 June 2009 - 12:20 PM in General Nerf

As some of you may have heard from youtube, Ice bought a Raider off ebay recently. He received it today but is unable to post about it here because of a suspension. So you get me to post his findings.

First, some facts:

Slam fire is holding down the trigger and quickly priming the blaster and it gets the same range as normal fire.
The priming stroke it 4"
The blaster's total length is 27" with the removable stock.
Standard 6 round magazines work in the raider and the 35 round magazine works in a LS
Stock ranges are 25'-30'
The drum mag fits in the mag holder in the stock of the LS
The stock is interchangeable with the RC stock

I'm not going.

#231809 Foamtalk: A Nerf Podcast

Posted by bobafan on 22 May 2009 - 12:39 AM in General Nerf

So what does everyone think of Boba's NIB blaster bonanza? (I didn't name it, bitch at twitch)
I think only Busta said anything about it.

Cool mod, it needs a kick ass paintjob now. On a related note, check out this thread: modification and paintjob thread

#229535 Combo Spring + Air Powered Nerf Gun

Posted by bobafan on 11 May 2009 - 05:02 AM in Modifications

Around here, we call what you are talking about and integration. Integrations can take some skill, but not always. Check out the modification and paintjob thread and the modification directory for information on the subject.

@nerfnukerz: He never says anything about a single barrel, and to make two power sources fire out the same barrel would be idiotic. There is nothing in this description that I see that is different from integrations such as Bullshit Dragon's Recon with 2k integration.

#229410 Anything Better Than Nite Finder?

Posted by bobafan on 10 May 2009 - 04:44 PM in General Nerf

You can go over the developments in nerf in the Nerf Wiki. You can find an evaluation of every blaster and most information you want.

#229404 Blaster Identification

Posted by bobafan on 10 May 2009 - 04:28 PM in General Nerf

Check this out: Nerf Wiki There is an article about nearly every blaster as well as a section for identifying blasters.

#229226 Longshot/recon Help

Posted by bobafan on 09 May 2009 - 05:45 PM in General Nerf

Break the paint, use whatever paint solvent is applicable, or (preferred) throw them out and get some decent blasters. I suggest looking through the nerf wiki for blasters that you might like, each has a review about its functionality.

Posted by bobafan on 09 May 2009 - 04:33 AM in Nerf Wars

I honestly can't tell what you are trying say. You have a sentence that is 4 lines long. I can make out something about you kicking someone's ass and a pointlessly large picture, so it's probably bullshit anyway.

I should be bringing lux this time, recent developments are promising.

#229075 Kyno Summer

Posted by bobafan on 08 May 2009 - 07:22 PM in Nerf Wars

What, are you planning to not come to you own war? I think you should. It'll give you a chance to live up to your threat of bringing a baseball bat to Valhalla and breaking my limbs.

#228813 Expanding Stefans

Posted by bobafan on 07 May 2009 - 03:26 PM in Modifications

The hollow back works for me, this is how mine are.

This is HC foam which is rather spongy, so it easily expands when the air hits it.

#227903 Dartsmithing Tips Archive

Posted by bobafan on 03 May 2009 - 02:29 PM in Darts and Barrels

Anything involving high speed and darts other than themselves as a projectile will make them shred. A rubber band doesn't have enough force to hold them together, and something that does will smash the foam.

#227029 Last Stand [new Game Type]

Posted by bobafan on 29 April 2009 - 03:29 AM in Nerf Wars

The experience I've had with forts and nerf(at Boone woods) is that they are a death trap. Staying in them is simply suicidal because your mobility and visibility are reduced. Hiding behind trees etc. is not the only way to avoid being shot and is used far less often than dodging.

Edit: This was Cincinnati and people were being aggressive. I didn't see behavior like msdfs described. Either people at massacre were being pussies or the environment was just too different.

By the way, this game type isn't a new suggestion.

#226471 Nerf Irc Room

Posted by bobafan on 27 April 2009 - 03:53 AM in Off Topic

If anyone else has been banned and wants to know why or you want an appeal etc., pm me and I will look into it.
I don't want the thread to be cluttered.

#226004 Nerf Irc Room

Posted by bobafan on 25 April 2009 - 11:48 PM in Off Topic

Because of the chaotic nature of IRC, people can be banned without warning or justification. This is not my policy, so here are the basic guidelines.

-No pr0n or fucking sick shock pictures.
-No spamming (this is flexible and is up to the ops who are active)
-No impersonating. This mostly applies to impersonating administrators of the community, but not exclusively.
-Don't be a douche. You can tell by the reactions of other members if you can't recognize it for yourself.

Also, please follow rules one and two, if you know what that means.

I am adding this to the first post.

Horus, your ban has been reduced to a week. Make your future involvement worth the typing it took to do this.

#224688 Valhalla

Posted by bobafan on 21 April 2009 - 03:23 AM in Nerf Wars

At any rate, I'll give $1 to whoever has more flag captures than me on Friday night. Good luck, you're going to need it.

You're on, bitch.

I'll be driving down with a friend, assuming the offer to kidnap me doesn't stand.

#220992 Chicago Area Nerf Out

Posted by bobafan on 01 April 2009 - 04:30 AM in Nerf Wars

Bump, as this, while maybe not as prolonged, is 1 week earlier than Valhalla. /me shakes fist at Twitch

The last time I checked, April 11 is 2 weeks before April 24th.

edit: yep ice

#220937 Valhalla

Posted by bobafan on 31 March 2009 - 07:03 PM in Nerf Wars

Any rules for day 1 and 2. Blaster restrictions?

Read the fucking thread.

#220898 I Have A Question.

Posted by bobafan on 31 March 2009 - 03:27 PM in Modifications

If you still need help, take some pictures and get on the IRC room and we can help you get it.

#215492 Late Winter Ohio War

Posted by bobafan on 28 February 2009 - 02:20 AM in Nerf Wars

Surely someone can pick you up on their way to the war?

Anyway, my ride and auxiliaries dropped out again. Have fun.

#215066 At2k Stock V.2

Posted by bobafan on 26 February 2009 - 01:03 AM in Modifications


The 2k is has a large shell as it is and you just made it bigger. The easy removal seems like it would fall off in a war that has any sort of vigor. Also, the shortness of the stock will make you hunch down to use, which hampers your ease of movement.

In addition, either you are using the wrong barrel materiel entirely or you have very thin foam to make a good fit in cpvc.

Just my honest opinion.

#214222 Gateway Webcam Software

Posted by bobafan on 22 February 2009 - 04:45 PM in Off Topic

We aren't going to hand feed you information. None of us are experts on webcam software, so the information you get would be from the sources that sharpie linked.

#212972 New Raider CS-35 Speculation Thread

Posted by bobafan on 17 February 2009 - 01:47 AM in General Nerf

I've got something to add to this dungheap of speculation.
I guess nobody else read the whole article as it was posted in the nerf championship thread.
2 new blasters are described. The furyfire, which we have pictures of, and the stormfire blasters, which are not well described. The article also confirms some things about the raider.

Not using gravity fed clips is about it.

#211394 Nerf Gun Database

Posted by bobafan on 11 February 2009 - 10:28 AM in General Nerf

How about you work on making the wiki better instead of starting from scratch?

#210070 2009 New Nerf Gun?

Posted by bobafan on 07 February 2009 - 12:02 AM in General Nerf

Theses look like darts to me, which may suggest no shells.

Hopefully OMC can tell us something.
