NO WALKING BACKWARDS
Don't go in any holes
Watch your step
Stay away from ledges
If I remember correctly, that was last year's plan. Also, if any one finds anything dangerous, we don't have to play in that particular area.
Well, within reasonable boundaries that's true, but not necessarily in all circumstances.Size means nothing. Its the strength of the spring. The DS spring is more powerful. Also, you need to make sure your darts have a good fit in PETG.
It might be bigger. Tonight I'll take a picture of both of them side-by-side. We will see.
I've had problems like this. It's usually one, or both of these problems; the barrel is too long, or the stefan doesn't fit properly. First, I would try making the barrel shorter (try 4" first, than 3"), if that doesn't work, try CPVC as your barrel material. Also, try lubricating the plunger, and make sure that you have a good seal. If all of that doesn't work, put the stock spring back in.
If all of this doesn't help, then I have no idea what's wrong.
In terms of improving the grenade idea, maybe you should try shotgun barrel attachments. The Pocket Blaster may not have enough power to drive them, but if it does, it should increase the amount of darts in the air.
Once our school district was replacing all of their computers, so we asked our counselors if we could take some of it, and they said yes. We all walked away with arm fulls of computer junk. We had to call my friend's mom to help us drive the stuff away (I believe one of my friends had something like five to ten computers).
The real trick, is to keep your eyes open. Also, try going to your local recycling center a few days after christmas; my brother and I did that once, and the guys there let us take a perfectly good TV for free. They even let us test it with an outlet on one of their garbage trucks.
Skitzo and nerf beginner were hiding in the bushes during a pistol round, when they accidentally disturbed a bees nest. I was walking around the field, as I was already out, when I heard shouting and running. I looked behind me, and saw the two of them charging out of the bushes at top speed being pursued by a number of insects. Instead of running away from everybody else, they ran straight at the people who were already out. Because they were being persued, the bees followed them into the crowd, and stung everybody. After seeing this, I took off in the other direction. However, Skitzo had stopped running around in circles, and was now running in the same direction that I was; still being chased by bees. I yelled, "don't follow me, you're gonna get me stung too!" So I ran faster, and managed to keep from getting stung. In the end, most people got stung, and we were VERY lucky that no one was allergic to bees.
So, if you were wondering, there's your answer.
I'm tired now, I'll post details later.
I have provided a trail guide, but use common sense. Remember, you're trying to get to the area labeled play area. If you arrive late, stay put and call one of us; we will come and find you.
Turn in at the Saxon Woods park sign
As you head into the parking lot, park on the left side.
In the left corner of the parking lot, closest to the road, there is a trail entrance.
The trail head should look like this:
After walking on the trail for a while, small trail will fork off to left; take the left trail:
After a short ways, you will come to a large trail; turn right on this trail
Looking down the trail
Keep heading down this trail. Eventually you will hit a fork; turn left.
(I know it says go right in the photo, just go left)
You'll know you're close when you see this large upturned tree stump:
You will see this when you have arrived:
The whole walk took us 16 minutes (with time to take pictures)
So, if we use the carpool system it will be kind of complicated, and if people come late, there could be a problem. But, if we use the main parking lot, there will be no parking complications; however, there's a catch, the walk from the main lot to the fields is around 0.8-0.9 miles (about 20-25 minutes on foot). The paths are really flat and wide, but still, carrying all of that stuff that distance is tough. My question is, which would you guys prefer?
This picture shows only part of the field, but most of the fighting takes place on the plateau on the top of the cliff.
The other field is an area that used to be used by mountain bikers. Basically, biking is illegal in this park, so the county made the bikers demolish all of the jumps, and such, that they had created. Now, there is a large non-forested basin with remnants of jumps and other terrain features. Also, there is a wooded hillside with smaller trails running through it.
z80 is currently in Ohio, so he should be able to give you more of a plan earlier next week.
I hope this helps you guys.
Funny, Wilson and I made the exact same post, at the same time.
That is a new sig!

But please specify: where exactly does it say its not working.
I do not need to specify anything because I am a Rear Admiral of nerfhaven!
Back on topic. If you're looking for lenses, check out Edmund Scientific, or any other hobby level supply site. Unless you have some very specialized tools, the level of alignment you would be able to get by hand would pretty much negate the advantages of good optics.
P.S. don't look at the sun with one of those things.
Hitting max on the bridge of the nose from ~70 feet off
Finally shooting wilson after him saying "Just try it"
Meeting some new people
Seeing some old faces
Steadily improving throughout the day
Sneaking up on the opposing team, getting seen, and through some miracle surviving.
Various headshots on a few people.
However, z80 is also right. When used in a safe manner, by properly trained personnel, any properly made chemical or procedure is safe.
My take on it: be careful and properly informed before trying any sort of experiment, or like telekenetic said, you can put yourself and the people around you in a lot of danger.
Now enough about this, let's all get back on topic.
P.S. next time I will try to bring my wagon.
(a) Firearm. -- The term "firearm" means (1) a shotgun having a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length; (2) a weapon made from a shotgun if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length; (3) a rifle having a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length; (4) a weapon made from a rifle if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length; (5) any other weapon, as defined in subsection (e); (6) a machinegun; (7) any silencer (as defined in section 921 of title 18, United States Code); and (8) a destructive device. The term "firearm" shall not include an antique firearm or any device (other than a machinegun or destructive device) which, although designed as a weapon, the Secretary finds by reason of the date of its manufacture, value, design, and other characteristics is primarily a collector's item and is not likely to be used as a weapon.
I doubt that you'll get any trouble for it, but it is something to consider. I think that NERF guns fall under the classification of a collectible.
I think that it would be really, really, stupid for some loophole to make nerf guns classified as firearms, but I'm not a lawyer, so I wouldn't know.
What do you mean by 9 z80 nerfers are great, but I miss having 19?
"Things I learned from Apoc 2007" by Evil Angel.
- If its you vs. Vacc, just wait for Famine to intervene with friendly conversation.
- When 45 people are involved, Groove can disappear for rounds on end. I think I saw him twice all day.
- In the future, every field manager needs to bring flagging tape with them to their option fields.
- 9 z80 Nerfers are great, but I missed having 19.
- Belts or better fitting pants are a Nerf necessity.
- The Deal Curse is gone, I can play well on that field.
- Hersh has more pistols than pockets, but it doesn't stop him from trying to fit them all in his cargo shorts.
What do you guys think we should work on for our seventh Apoc in 08? If we want the day to run smoother what would you suggest?
With that being said, my personal experiences were mixed, but ended very well. In the beginning, a failing AT3K kept me from achieving my standard level of awesome; I only got 2 kills in the first 3 rounds. However, once I got my gun situation figured out, everything picked up, and I had a great time.
Some highlights include, but are not limited to:
The ZERG IT DOWN charge during the multi-clan war
Getting ten kills during 3-15 in the forest
The mad dash through the trailers (in the end we ran through a thorn bush)
OMC's sword (and Al's theft of said sword)
Getting to work together as a whole clan
Overall, while I started out slow, this was probably the best war I've ever been to (tied with DEAL).
