Is anybody gonna be passing through annapolis on the way out? Just in case my ride falls through it would be nice to have a backup plan... pm me.
I'll probably bring at least 2 or 3 other mids as long as thats cool. I dont have any of my guns up here and none of them would have any either, so we may need some of those too.
Hope to see you guys out there!
The buses added a whole new level of strategery, as some might say. They could be used as cover, hiding places, ambush points, but the best was when we started duking it out inside the buses themselves. When I saw norm head into the front of a bus to use as a hiding spot, and subsequently jumped in the back through the emergency exit door, and started trading shots with the guy while ducking behind seats.... yeah that was pretty awesome. Or when I was actually surrounded while in a bus, with guys just waiting to fill me with stefans as soon as I opened a door, so I just sneakily poked my bbb out a window and totally smoked josh before he even knew what hit him. Then there was the whole situation of jim trying to steal the flag and log roll under all the buses back to the base.
By the way, Cammis and face paint do wonders for sneaking around the woods at night. You can blend right into those shadows.
Another cool part of the war: I had zero time to do gun prep, so I ended up fighting 90% of the time with an almost stock dart tag (restrictors were removed but that was all) that shot between 40 and 50 feet depending on the darts. And yeah I couldn't outgun most people in a traditional sense. But you did not want to miss your first shot, and have me chasing you from behind while you reloaded. Having the rapid-fire gun broke a lot of stnd offs and allowed for a lot of run-and-gun action that is lost a lot in wars where people all have longer range, longer reload guns
FH and General, It was really sweet to get to hang with you guys (and your dads) General you better keep nerf growing out there on the west side of our great state, because you best believe 3m's gonna be out there to smoke you guys as often as we can.
GREAT war, with many more to come.
Truth be told, I dont think that finding the exact best length is worth the time, whether it is spent testing or figuring equations. Just use intuition and go with what looks best. The extra 5 feet of range isn't gonna make much difference, trust me.
Once you've been doing it for long enough you really can just eyeball what's gonna be best for your particular mod.
Yeah this summer I'm gonna be sailing around on the east coast learning about navigation and such for about 2 weeks at the end of may. Then I will be on naval cruise on some big old warship for the month of July. I requested to be stationed out of San Diego, so I just may be able to find some of you SoCal guys for a little war when we're in port? Besides Those things I get a few weeks at home, then I'm back to Navy again for next year, I'll start getting more into my major, Ocean Engineering- should be pretty cool. I'll also be playin ball again and hopefully wrestling too if I can pull it off.
Good luck to all of you that are looking for colleges, applying to colleges, or choosing colleges. That's a tough job, and a pretty big decision, but dont get too hung up on it, the right choice will come to you eventually. Keep your options open as long as possible, ya know.
Interesting, no? But the reason behind it is not that it's that much harder, it is the same as any other ivy league college difficulty-wise. But there are all kinds of beautiful gorges and crevasses in ithaca which are great for sightseeing and hiking along, but also grat for jumping off! So its simply a matter of convenience.
Ha, I got waitlisted by cornell last year too... those bitches. I didn't even bother filling out the wait-list application though because I was already into ND and Navy... oh well.
Then I received the Ivy Bitchslap when I was shot down by Cornell
And congrats too, Johns Hopkins is a freakin legit college. Now that you have nothing to worry about, have fun slacking off the rest of senior year! Seriously, don't feel bad about not doing any work either, you've earned it. Working hard for 11 3/4 years to get into college is totally worth the 1/4 year of partying your senior year!
...and oh yeah, you missed another category: "The Badass." I don't think it really needs too much explaining, but You, me, Talio, and VACC are the only members.
And also "The Girl," which belongs solely to BK.
I say it again, Piney, you are like a spring that flows forth with infinite wisdom.

Best 5 players in the league, because they make up the best TEAM in the league, the DETROIT PISTONS!!!
Ture there's somebody better than each of them at their positions, but nobody can play together like those five guys, talk about a stacked lineup.
I gotta warn you first though, that your gun may explode, killing you and your whole town, and most importantly melting your stefan, but if the dart survives, just think of the RANGE that baby can get!
In close quarters, you could barrel tap (bayonet) someone and then immediately shoot them, scoring two hits with only one dart.
I just started this year so I'm a lowly superior. Not a very fun year as I'm sure you've heard.
Slightly off-topic, my older brother is an Annapolis alumnus. What year are you? I remember seein' the Halloween thread from a while back and thinking to myself, "Holy shit-- Batman's in a Bancroft Hall dorm room!"
What's your brother up to nowadays, is he still in the Navy? What was his service selection?
Does anyone remember those sweet BnA commercials when teh little kids got attacked by like ninjas and stuff and fended tehm off with their Nerf weaponry? Or am i hallucinating?
Eithery way even though I'm a bit younger than Death, I still feel old.
Anyways I didn't start nerfing in the organized/modified sense until mid high school, and my first modded guns were a pair of lock-n-loads.
EDIT: yeah after reading talio's post, I also need some darts. I hate to be a mooch but I dont have time to make tthem. I'll use whatever you feel like giving me though, im not too picky.
Should I happen to have overnight Liberty I'm game for hangin out with you guys saturday night too.
This is a really funny thread. I think I may have actually laughed at one point, but that's another matter. Anyways. There's a lot of wisdom from a few guys in here. Ther's also a lot of bullshit from people who have been here for less than a year and have hundreds of posts so they think they're cool. Piney is once again the man, as is IronRhino, as is this Duxburian guy. Shinny and CX are legit as always, and cobbers while he did go off the deep end, at least can back it up.
I don't post very often. I've been here two years. I've read the forums for almost 3... see a pattern there? I read through this entire site before I signed up. And my first post, I believe, was either an original mod or integration. Most of you kids dont even know who I am, which is cool, because I've been pretty quiet for the past year or so. Like when I posted a fairly cool gun over thanksgiving break, and got talked down to by kids who have been here a month? These are the people that ruin this place.
It's not the newest members.... nah not at all. They will always be here, and they will always make mistakes, and they will always be put in there place.
The people that ruin this place are the second tier of members, those that made it through their first month without giving up, and now think they're the shit. Oh I've been here 2 months and have 200 posts, so I am infinitely wise! No, you're not. You can't flame someone until you've been here at least a year, and have made definitive contributions, or nobody will respect you. Yes, many of you guys who think you are experienced and wise posted in this very topic! Complaining about the n00bs, thats the cool thing to do when you've been here 2 months!
Don't pretend you know shit when you don't, and don't pretend to run shit when you can't, and don't talk down to people if you can't back it up. If you are going to talk shit about someone's mod, you better have at least one or two superior mods posted up here already.
So lets see here... IF YOU HAVE BEEN HERE UNDER SIX MONTHS AND:
-you didn't read the boards for at least a month before posting
-your most frequented board is OFF TOPIC
-you have initiated a flame war
-you have talked shit to someone who's been here longer than you
-you have giddily warned a spammer that they were going to get the 9999 day special
-you haven't posted any original mods, or contributed in any other significant manner
-you have a post average of more than one per day
-you think you're better than ANYONE else on these boards
-you think you've earned everyone's respect
YOU ARE WRONG!
Yeah, there are a few exceptions, but for the most part that describes most of the members here. You're punks. You picked up nerf and thought that you are now the coolest man on earth. Last a year, last 2 years, make some contributions, go to some nerf wars. It's really easy to tell who's legit and who's not. Most of the legit people around here don't post as much, because they've been there, done that, just like rhino said. Most of the people who talk a lot don't actually say anything!
So I'm starting to ramble here, because I'm tired, and this is a stream-of-conciousness type post. This looked like a good thread to do it in so there ya go.
My 2 cents
Rock on dudes
In any case, I really hope I can make it. If one of you guys could hook me up with a ride then that would pretty much guarantee me being there, whoever can help either PM me or IM me veggieboy3000.
Wow. Thanks for telling me how it is here at the haven, man.
Got the right idea there. If you ask me relocate that flash light. Integration is nothing new here at nerf haven especcially with the crossbow. Thats really all i have to say.
Thanks for backing me up, Piney.
The original part about this gun isn't the fact that its a 2k inside a crossbow. Of course that's been done. The original part about this gun is the trigger system for the 2k. It took quite a bit of pretty precise dremeling and gluing to get that thing to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Thanks for the feedback too. The flahlight on there was the only one I had acessible at the moment, and It actually did help out in the war the next day once it got dark out.
In any case here are some pictures:
and the top view (you can see the 2k handle)
This is the baddest-assest gun I've done in a long long time.
I would highly encourage all of you guys to check out this site. It's full of motivational videos of our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq figting the War on Terror. The clips are mostly sent in from the troops themselves, resulting in some totally kick-ass stuff that you can't really see anywhere else.
I love this shit, maybe because I'm gonna be doing it in 4 years, but either way this should give you all a better appreciation for all that our armed forces are doing for us every day.

I'm gonna be on leave from Navy, and my 2 buddies at West Point are gonna be there too, we'll have some sweet rivalry action goin on, plus you get to war with guys actually in the millitary!
in any case... talk to Uriel on HQ about it... he's the man when it comes to logistics and organization, among other things.
My point is... I doubt that the color of a dart is going to make it any easier to dodge during a war. Some of you may have different experiece with this, but that's my take on it.
