I think that post right there would justify my answer. He has done nothing but ask questions for his entire stay (even though thats what most people do). It seems that if you wanted a new, contributing, member, he's not the one. And that wherehouse thing.....
This is irrelivent, but i just coated chapstick in plastidip.
Ok I thought this wasn't post worthy and i didn't want to start a new topic, plus I have no idea where to put this so I will put it here. I recently made a sort of makeshift holster after my attempts at black wrath's very nice holster failed.
Just to clarify, it does not hold as well as a regular holster. I use it for my NF and AT2K. I just loop the plunger handle or the trigger guard over the hook and it stays there pretty well.

And finnaly the at2k that i found at a local good will. No its not a paintjob, thats the original color.
EDIT: wow those pics are big, oh well, too lazy to resize them now, maybe next time.
To answer you question, NFs are good, cheap, reliable, and pretty good ranged little guns. Splitfires, if you can find one (or two), are amazing, two shots and about 100 feet. Just remember you don't need to go out and buy a crossbow to be good at nerf.
PS: If you guys allow homemades in your wars they get great range if you make them properly. I hope to get one up soon.
How did you glue the little tabs for the screws to go in to hold the bottom part on to the top part of the gun? In my experiance, that little of surface will not hold.
PS: On your FAR rifle, how did you glue the paw that grabs the shell on the extractor to the exractor itself? I've tried about every type of glue but it just won't hold. Did you roughin up the surfaces first? If so, how.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to request your permission to play with Nerf weapons in city parks. Some friends and I enjoy using toy Nerf blasters that have been modified slightly with PVC attachments, rubber bands, or other minor modifications.
This is not paintball or airsoft, which fire potentially hazardous ammunition; our blasters fire homemade foam darts. They are made of foam backer rod (a common item used for insulation purposes), that has a glue tip on the end and has a fishing weight enclosed for aerodynamic purposes.
Since the summer of 2000 we have had occasional ďwarsĒ which are merely a bunch of us shooting at each other for a few hours in an organized manner. We have rules and make sure they are enforced. We have never shot a pedestrian or a non-participant. In fact, we make a point to avoid them because we are aware that we are in a county or public park and their experience should not be disturbed. We donít go in and mark up the place; our messes (the foam darts) are cleaned up without question.
My friends and I have Nerfed in Cupertino public parks. Recently, a friendís mom heard about an incident where a few people were arrested for playing airsoft in one of these parks. We were concerned, for we didnít want to break any rules or be cited.
We were in no way aware of the rule that stated there could be no projectile weapons. Iím not even sure if that applies here because we use toy blasters that can be bought from Toys ĎR Us and other toy stores.
To Close Off With a Few Points:
1. We have yet to have any formal complaint about our Nerf activities.
2. The dart material we use is foam backer rod. You can find it in any hardware store. It is a foam material that canít inflict any damage or injury.
3. We stay in a limited section of the park to allow other people the chance to enjoy the park as much as we do.
Thank you for your time,
(name and such)
I'm not sure what year we started nerfing (maybe '03?) and I forgot to edit that part.
Don't be a homosexual; leave your camo pants at home.
Dang it. I guess I'll have to wear those when squirrel gets his paintball thing going. Hmm I guess that means no camo shirts either. Oh well.
EDIT: oh ya, what FIDO said, thanks for the motivation and everything.
Thank you for your inquiry regarding use of the parks for your Nerf games. I reviewed the Municipal Code which regulates use of park lands and could not find anything that would specifically prohibit your activity in the way you described. Providing the foam projectile is soft and in no way could cause injury to a person or wild life, I do not see any reason you can not enjoy the park with your activity.
I would suggest however, that if the blasters in any way resemble a weapon or you and your friends are dressing in fatigues or similar clothing you call the Sheriff's Department Dispatch at 408-299-2505 in advance and let them know the park you will be at and what type of activity you will be doing. In the event a passerby sees you playing, is concerned and calls 911, deputies will likely be sent to investigate. By calling in advance it will help the responding deputies evaluate what is really going on. Unfortunately, sometimes a mere game using life like weapons that is seen and phoned in to law enforcement can end up very tragic.
Thanks again for checking in with us. If you have any questions, feel free call me at Blah Blah Blah

So there you have it. I actually got a reply that wasn't a fill out form style letter back from the cupertino government. Now we can nerf! YAY. Just thought you guys would like to know.
PS-I modified the letter before I sent it.
Hee hee. You must have a really bad dart-barrel fit, or I have a bad plunger-plunger tube fit....aw cwap. But what kind of pump is it that he was using and where did he get it? I've never seen anyone use abs before, was it good to work with?
my NF would suck up a dart every time I cocked it with the dart in the barrel.
PS-Bolt says he doesn't use his co2 rifle in wars so...ya. I don't know what he will do when (if) he converts his new rifle to co2. I probably wouldn't play with him...not that I do now or anything.
Nice. Ya I pmed him and he is haveing a busy time at school so I have to wait a while for the letter. I miss nerfing. I have so many gun Ideas that i'm working on but I can't use them.
me and Weasel and I
EDIT: whoa, didn't see his new post. So many posts since I last replied... Actually only five what whatever. I'll be looking at that now....
