thanks! i actually got a small poll to stuff the dart in, and it fits in one of the dart holsters. but i'm curious to what other guns you could use for the glove arm, because it really only seems to work for the "Auto Grip" because it's the only gun that I know of that the release button is actually part of the plunge tube. if you think it's possible to work a pump gun and it's trigger on your arm, like a spidy gun? well, tell me, i want to make more. um, i'll pm you for the prices for my 3 different gloves. i'll have examples made by the middle of the week.
I think you've got something there, the SDTGs could definielty work (quite easily aswell). You might even be able to fit 2 SDTGs on one arm....could be useful. I look forward to more examples.
Good job CB.
As for the barrel problem, you might want to see if the air is escaping somewhere. Considering that air is getting into the barrel (because the dart is exiting the barrel), I bet the air is escaping.
EDIT: For clarification.....I'm not a "nay-sayer". Infact I'm "patting you on the back" for putting soo much effort (with a good level of intellect) into nerf, irregardless of the vastness of the assumptions.
- a LS
-2 Rapid Assault Vehicles
-Season 1 & 3 of kenny vs spenny (possibly the funniest show I've ever seen)
-a new dremel
-$250ish in gift certificates
-some random transformer stuff, which was more than meets the eye!
and the best part of christmas....my whole family (3 generations) having an indoor war!
On a side note, I had a little "mini-indoor-war" and this story shows just how useful this truck is. A buddy on my team decided to backstab me, so I dashed away from him and into another room. Not too long after I got into the other room, he had me pinned by the truck. He was able to drive the truck right into the room, and unload on me......it was a little freaky because I had nothing to shoot at, but I was under pretty heavy fire.
Yesterday while I was out and about, I decided to hit up the local zellers and check out the toy aisle (as usual). While in there I saw what could be the best thing to add to the Rapid Assault Vehicle (now referred to as RAV). Right next to the nerf section was a remote control spy vehicle. This thing had a small camera on it, which displayed what it viewed on a heads up display in a set of glasses it came with. Rigging the firing mech of the RAV to this vehicle (it would be much more difficult the other way around due to the complexity difference in the control electronics....yay for digital electronics!) would give you a view of what your RAV is shooting, instead of blindly firing around a corner.
I got a couple of these rc cars for christmas this year, and figured that I would share a little bit about what I've learned about them. To start off their range is better than what's advertised, I haven't done an official test but the darts go from one end of my house to the other (approx 30'). Also the firing can be enhanced, as there is pretty heavy restriction on the flow of air (the air flows through very small slots in the pegs). This car's biggest draw-back is it's mauverablity. It has "tank" steering (forward and reverse for each side), but it is only applied to the back wheels (there is no power applied to the front wheels). Being "rear wheel tank drive", makes for some awkward manuvering. On tile the wheels tend to spin, too much force applied to the wheels without enough friction (but this can be fixed by either adding a little weight or adding an elastic band around the wheels). I would definitely call this car a nerfer's best indoor war friend. When I get back to college in january, I'll be taking it apart and testing out what I can do to improve it.
Oh I forgot one of the best peices of info, at around 18' it will hit someone 6'2" directly in the neck....AWESOME!!
Just for the record, Voltage will make give the motors a higher max rpm, however if you up the amps it will give the motor more torque. More torque means more force applied to the dart, which means a better range.
You're right in saying that the barrels aren't supposed to come out, they should be fastened to the turret.
Penguin has the right idea, post the pics up here.
I think the "do no modify" disclaimers are more for Hasbro's legal benefit, rather than a strick rule. If Hasbro didn't say "do no modify", and someone got seriously injured from a modded gun, Hasbro would most likely be facing a rather large legal issue.
As far as a date, the 19th of January (the 3rd saturday) seems to be what works the best for my "crew". Before we set anything in stone we should wait to hear from the others about this date though.
Awesome news Cmdrmack, you've just given me more hope that my club will get approved. I don't know about you, but I've already had meetings with the student life co-ordinators. I have their backing for even more funding and some major advertising. I'm hoping to be able to strike a deal with the local TRU or wal-mart to get a small discount on nerf items for members of the club (or possibly even them donating prizes), in exchange for advertising their stores inside the college.
Let's get a nerf club in every college and university!
Oh the words of the wise Angel, I was also thinking that this might not be the best time to bring out some of the big guns (mind the small pun). I can vouch for my crew that we will play by the honor system, very honorably. When it comes down to it we will be there to have fun, not bitch over getting hit.
Some of my buddies are just starting to get into nerf, and I'm not sure if I can fully supply them with spare guns myself. Would anyone be able to bring a few "extras" (I know there's no such thing as an "extra" nerf gun!) to help out?
There's also the golden rule: Modding nerf guns brings out the diabolic creative genius in all of us.
I must say I am greatly Impressed with the song list...
My Top 2 are: Stricken By Disturbed, and Before I forget By slipknot.... Some sick shit there.
I must agree. The song list on this game (I picked it up last night, and am almost done medium.......I'm very tired today at work ha ha ha) is rediculus. If I had to pick a top 3 to play so far.....Priestess: Lay Down, Slipknot: Before I forget, and DISTURBED: Sticken. I freaked out for a bit when I saw that there was actually a Disturbed song on the game.
Initially, you didn't say shit about a concert, only that Disturbed was good. Certain people are musically talented (See: Bach, Steve Vai, Michael Angelo Batio) some are not (See: Fred Durst, Dave Drainman, etc.) that is a fact, stop arguing that it's an opinion. Again, if you like them, fine, don't make false claims though.
And no, you did not conjugate correctly. Disturbed is a unit, therefore it takes the pronoun "it" and it should take all verbs that "it" takes.
I've seen these guys in concert, and so far (in my opinion) it was the best concert I've ever been to. Just to give reference to some of the other bands I've seen live; Metallica, Greenday, Three days grace, korn, etc.
Initially I did say something about a concert. I'm not arguieng who is and who isn't musically talented, because that's pointless. The reason that's pointless is the FACT that the term "talent" and who it applies to is based on OPINION.
The fact is that talent is purely based on opinion, and comparing talents will only change your OPINION to an OPINION based on a term of relativity, still not a FACT. I only ask the you bring yourself down from the heavens to live with the rest of us who acknowledge the FACT that our OPINIONS aren't FACTS.
Listen, it's a simple fact of life that some people are musically talented, and others are not. That happens to be the opinion I perscribe to, but it's also a fact, down and dirty. All I've said is that Disturbed's members are those who are not musically talented. If they put on a good show, fine, but they are not musically talented.
PS. The proper verb form to use with a band is the third singular (ie. is, was, etc) not the third plural, as the band's name is a collective noun. Not attacking, just pointing it out.
Considering the fact that the show they put on was a concert, which in my opinion it was awesome (giving a reference to what my opinion of a good concert was), I believe that they are talented, yes that is my opinion not a fact. You're placing too much factual (if that's a word) relevance to the word "talented", which by definition is almost purely opinionative. You're opinion is that Disturbed are talent less (did I conjugate correctly this time?), I respect it and you're completely entitled to it. However it is not a fact, so please quit being so narcissistic by claiming your opinion is a fact.
If you wish to compare Disturbed to other mallcore bands in musical areas by all means go ahead, but even then it is still only a relatively based opinion.
Uhh what? I don't care if they can put on a good show for those people who cannot recognize talent. It's not an attack, it really isn't - that's just the way you're handing it out. Talented pertains to playing/writing well, or if you're the vocalist, singing well/writing well. I'm not sure what you mean by a 'good show,' but tell me, how many shows have you been to in which a band you like didn't put on a good show? The only time it's happened to me is when the band's volumes were totally fucked and you could barely hear the vocalist. Oh wait, that makes sense since all the bands I listen to are talented musically. If you're seeing a lot of disappointing shows, what's that mean?
Again, my original claim was directed towards your statement "I can't believe no one has mentioned Disturbed yet." I said the weren't talented, in reference to their musical abilities because, quite simply, that's what this thread is about. They can't be talent-less in the studio and then be talented on the stage, simple as that.
RAMBO, you're confusing your opinion for a fact, and it's getting frustrating trying to tell you that your opinion isn't a fact. You at least gave a frame of reference in one of your posts, but that doesn't make you opinion a fact. I'm not taking this as an attack, I'm merely providing the the fact that your opinion isn't a fact. Having said that, neither is my opinion (which happens to be that Disturbed are awesome).
I never said that I attended any "horrible shows" (even though I've been forced to see nickleback by the wifey....which IN MY OPINION was horrible). The references I gave were some of the best shows I've been to, and it was purely so that you could see what my opinion of a good concert was.
To tell you the truth I was shocked that no one had put Disturbed on their list, especially since I saw many lists that have a lot of bands that I listen to as well.

"Disturbed is not talented", is a VERY opinionative statement. If you're going to say something like that, you might want to back it up with some sort of proof, or atleast claim it to be your opinion rather than a fact. I've seen these guys in concert, and so far (in my opinion) it was the best concert I've ever been to. Just to give reference to some of the other bands I've seen live; Metallica, Greenday, Three days grace, korn, etc.
Therefore, I call your bullshit.
Two problems with that. Disturbed isn't talented. Just because they put on a good show doesn't make them talented. I've got some buddies that are in a band, they put on excellent shows, are they talented? Fuck no, they aren't very good at all, no record deal, no sponsorships, nothing.
I think you're narrowing the label of "talented". I also think that it is your opinion (not a fact) that they aren't talented, which I respect because everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, let's look at the definition of the word talented. Talented: showing a natural aptitude for something [syn: gifted] (taken from http://dict.die.net/talented/). Technically since they've shown me a natural aptitude for putting on a good show, they're talented. I've already used a base of reference to compare my opinion of their concert (look at the other un-arguably talented bands I've seen live). Therefore, it is my opinion that Disturbed is talented, which is based on the facts.
If your buddies put on a good show, I think they're talented. A record deal isn't necessarily about talent, I think it's more about the profitability for the record label.
