#141982 2nd Annual Mnsbw

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 22 February 2008 - 02:39 PM in Nerf Wars

Oh and bring money. I might sell off my +bow assuming it's done. I have enough materials to make two so I'm going to keep one and sell one.

o really? got a ballpark price?


Most likely I'm going to sell it to sam, but probably around $100.


holy gay... is it a repeater? link to topic?

Keep in mind the majority of us have actually been to a nerf war and know stuff that you probably don't. I'd say have at the very least 100 total.


touche and point taken, I would like to know what I'm up against, so Show me what you're workin' with.

I've got 2 potential noobs on the line, one's only 12, though...

is there an age limit?

scratch one, now my buddy frank might come, but i doubt he'll go through with it.

I feel like a little girl waiting for hannah montana to take the stage.



#145072 2nd Annual Mnsbw

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 14 March 2008 - 09:43 AM in Nerf Wars

hokay, so; I am coming for damn sure, my friend is unreachable, but last time we spoke he said he was going to his dad's. i told him to go buy fbr and make darts for himself, but i doubt he's done it, so if he shows up, he'll prolly need a gun, cuz all his guns are stock (fuck.). not to mention he's getting his own ride, making him totally invulnerable to phone calls. (bollocks.)

but I'm ready. just finished tweaking PITA, so I'm al ready.

hilt, how many people are you picking up?

sorry for double posting, but this just occured to me.

do we have anyone with medical experience or training coming?

Do you think it would be ok if i bring a nerf gernade?


say yes, it's a 'war' isn't it?



#141492 2nd Annual Mnsbw

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 February 2008 - 12:04 PM in Nerf Wars

though i am going to buy more rounds, keep in mind my CO awarded me expert infantry for my 98% m16 overall performance, because i can make every shot count.

how many rounds should i buy? i can't make them.

and, uh, does anyone have any spare mags they can bring/sell me?



#145090 2nd Annual Mnsbw

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 14 March 2008 - 01:41 PM in Nerf Wars

hypothetical situations:

a player falls off of the playground or slips on ice(if its still there) and busts their shit.
a player runs into a tree and is rendered unconscious.
Rare: someone is shot in the eye.

I asked because as a soldier(and future combat medic), it is my duty to promote safety.
It's not stupidity, just concern, which seems to be a foreign concept to you, sam.



#137607 2nd Annual Mnsbw

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 28 January 2008 - 11:38 AM in Nerf Wars

I can't do it the 5th, 22nd looks the best, but either way, i'd need a ride, because niether my parents nor the buses are being cooperative...

#138119 2nd Annual Mnsbw

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 01 February 2008 - 01:21 PM in Nerf Wars

also, did anyone check to see if there were any pot heads playing whilst we nerf?

I rarely understand what your saying.


I read a news article about a lot of potheads getting busted whilst playing frisbee golf. 15 pounds of sweet, sweet hash...

anyway, I'm happy we have more than 10 people attending...

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 30 January 2008 - 02:24 PM in Nerf Wars

I am scheduled for drill (army training) on the 15th, but i'll try to move it so I can come...

alrighty then, I'm official, so long as Hilt is still offering a ride...
this will be my first war, i suppose, so somebody should film this.



#254115 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 07:21 PM in General Nerf

As long as you don't show up to the same MN war as me in full camo, I'll be happy to hit you guys in the neck a few times.

Camo in the Nerf world equates to a giant sign that says "SHOOT AT ME"


Only if they can see where you are. I realize, in wide-range wars, camouflage definitely has it's use, but not as practical in constant-contact engagements, where both sides are in plain view of the other team ninety-nine percent of the time, whereas the camouflage serves as more of a team uniform.

:D



#254114 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 07:15 PM in General Nerf

Interesting fact here I thought I'd throw in: A stefan fired from a plugged, singled titan at maximum force has comparable muzzle velocity to a 40mm Airfoil round, and they both sting at close range.


Which is why they are almost universally banned from the nerf wars organized on these forums.


Why, yes, I understand that.



#254042 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 08:15 AM in General Nerf

First of all, read this.


A million times no.

Team work is effective. Military squad tactics are, usually, not.

Generally speaking, going out and nerfing with your friends on a regular basis will do more to improve your teamwork and nerf iq than....how do you train nerf anyway? Wouldn't whatever you're doing just be, well, nerfing?

Anyway, knock yourself out, but I'd keep a couple things in mind if I were you: 1 - Nerf tactics are completely different than tactics using any other type of firearm. 2 - At any given nerf war you're only going to have your squad together for maybe a couple of rounds.

Now, of course, maybe you don't plan on attending any NIC type wars. Maybe you only want to throw your own wars. If that's the case, good luck, but remember that if you're using a bunch of new nerfers as practice for your well equiped and experienced team, those new nerfers will not likely have enough fun in order to want to become old nerfers.


I've taken all that into account already. my Squads are devided up by skill and rank. When we play within our ranks, we balance out the teams by such standards, so that it is fair play and fun play. We don't mind getting split up, as I tend to lean towards team-based tactics rather than squad based tactics, as moving in groups aren't very practical with more than 4 bodies. Thusly, if you wanted to be a nerd about it, you could say I'm taking the "Army of Two" approach.

Believe me, I know that nerf guns have few ballistic similarities to real firearms, and I have adjusted our rules of engagement as to compensate.

Interesting fact here I thought I'd throw in: A stefan fired from a plugged, singled titan at maximum force has comparable muzzle velocity to a 40mm Airfoil round, and they both sting at close range.

Thank you very much, Venom. Your voice is most welcome.

Wait...will I have to do push ups? Because I'm not really a fan of "physical exertion."


only if you screw up something fierce. lol



#254681 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 27 October 2009 - 11:31 AM in General Nerf

Thank you for bringing my profile to my attention. having looked it over, I realize that I have been phished.



#254688 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 27 October 2009 - 12:07 PM in General Nerf

Well, yes. But what if they were aiming at your abdomen? adjust, lie flat? The point of training is to get better at something.

Max Payne...I like that. ;)

Edit: I know you didn't phish me, the IP was from new york.



#254654 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 26 October 2009 - 09:51 PM in General Nerf

Tactics are rarely followed to the letter, and if the Rangers taught me anything, improvisation is key.
I have left the terms somewhat open so that adjustments can be made in adaption to lower velocity weapons and the like.

Look guys, I'm trying to make things as smooth as possible in my transiton from combat training to milsim, so forgive me if some of this may seem overkill or just plain dumb.

Edit: Because if I leave one thing out, y'all lose your minds.



#254040 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 07:52 AM in General Nerf

Yes, I mentioned in the first post about finding appropriate cover or concealment(preferably, the first.)

One of the things I will be teaching is bounding, which goes something like this:

Let's say two players are moving in a team towards a treeline to flank a hole or a loser. when the two enter into the treeline, Player A will move 5 meters or so to the left or right of player B and find cover, for instance, a tree. Player B spots a Vulcan dug in about 30 meters ahead. Player A will signal B to move up. Player B will move up to the next available cover while Player A provides covering fire. when Player B is set, He will signal Player A to move up past him, whilst providing him with covering fire. Repeat until you are in a good offensive position to push on towards the objective.

Also, thank you goongala, for actually understanding what I'm trying to do here.



#254197 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 21 October 2009 - 10:58 AM in General Nerf

That said, nerf tactics are something I love to talk about, but are better taught through actually nerfing. I'd prefer if this thread come back to its original purpose, which was local recruitment. If Messiah would like me to close it and start over, that's fine. If you WANT to discuss specific tactics, start a new thread. Though, I warn you, most people who chime in have will have no idea what they are talking about.


Well, I rather like where this thread has gone to. Who doesn't ask questions before they join something? I have no problem answering questions from interested nerfers. I'll just ask that any more questions will be through PM.

If I move to St. Paul can I play nerf guns like GI Joe with you guys? Can I be Road Block? PLEASE?!


Yes. pew pew. :3



#254156 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 10:28 PM in General Nerf

I do wanna see videos of some crazy drill master yelling about Nerf. That would make me laugh.

I think I shall do that next time I visit the PX. lol



#254024 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 19 October 2009 - 11:25 PM in General Nerf

You are a great guy to Nerf with. I can see where the appeal to this is, but truth be told, its Nerf. You will never have guns accurate enough, or that shoot fast enough to make actual "training" applicable. Bullets are hard to dodge, so the goal is to kill an enemy before they fire. Nerf, on the otherhand, is really easy to dodge.

It would be like sending the National Guard after Neo from the Matrix... It might work, but it seems like it would take a while.

Although, I may be totally wrong. I'd like for your Nerf crew to come to an NIC war. I want to see what you guys can do.


What is this NIC you speak of?



#254031 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 20 October 2009 - 12:17 AM in General Nerf

I cannot fathom why people aren't jumping at this.


Because nerf is a game, and you're taking yourself waaaay too seriously?


So is basketball, football, soccer, hockey...they all have playbooks, why shouldn't this sport/game/riffraff?



#253941 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 19 October 2009 - 01:02 PM in General Nerf

I have formed a nerf group that will either host or attend operations in the surrounding areas of St. Paul, mostly between Inver Grove Heights and North St. Paul, so, a fairly wide theater. We are about 17 members strong thus far, and are always recruiting. If you find that you are interested in joining us, click here to be directed to our Facebook Page.

This isn't recruiting for any branch of the United States Armed Forces. The group has been designated that because I want it that way, seeing as I train every one of my members in the ways of the Army Ranger as applied to nerf: squad and team-based tactics, improvised cover and concealment, so on and so forth.

I'll take any questions through PM.



#253963 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 19 October 2009 - 05:44 PM in General Nerf

I like to have things structured.



#254026 34th Light Combat Battalion Recruiting

Posted by themessiahpsg1 on 19 October 2009 - 11:33 PM in General Nerf

This is nerf: we don't conduct "operations", we don't play in "theaters", we don't "train", we don't have military rankings, we don't use "squad tactics", and we don't wear all camo. This is nerf, not the fucking military.


First of all, read this.

Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of the Rangers.

Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.

Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well-trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.

Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.

Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.

Unless you know what it means to live and die by these six stanzas, MegaMouse, you can shut your shit-cave.

I regret to say that the military has taken over every aspect of my life, especially my hobbies, so if you feel that it's too much for you, leave it be. Simple as that.

I guess I'm not getting through. I'm trying to turn out some of the best nerfers that Minnesota has ever seen.

I cannot fathom why people aren't jumping at this.

Another good idea would be a clip fed pistol. :angry:

Just with darts.
[/quote]

The grip of a pistol is too small for Nerf Darts, it would have to be stored in a forward compartment.

Something along these lines perhaps:

Posted Image

The bolt would be similar to the slider on a maverick, scout, or crossfire, but you'd push it forward to chamber the round. It'd have to be at least the size of a maverick, but if they could get it to have interchangeable clips with the Longshot it'd sell like hotcakes.

something like the Storm LS-2, eh?

i only need two to wreak hell...

you apparently didn't see the 'ideas' part up there in the topic title, meaning none of these ideas may come into fruition, and they are for laughs and the bored, but thanks showing me it's been done.
this weekend i tried my idea, but i fucked it up(as usual), and now I'm one NF short of a decent arsenal.
