Unless their dart went in your barrel, in which case they actually own you (in the literal sense).
I don't know if anyone mentioned this yet, but getting hit in the gun needs to be revised. The hit should only count if your gun is blocking the shot from hitting your person. That is to say, if you're shouldering the gun (aiming) and someone standing 90 degrees to your left shoots and hits your gun, it would have completely missed you, thus it shouldn't count. I had to correct a young gun about this at the Tune Up when it happened to him.
And as far as clearing in goes, use the Golden Rule of nerf wars, because I will break your gun in half if you shoot me from 5 feet away with one of those damn brass guns and you led me to believe you're out.
Sometimes I forget that badger gets the final ruling in all matters pertaining to nerf.
I like the argument that it makes the game flow smoother. But if you can't reason with the person whom you think you shot/ the person who thought he shot you, nerfing has lost a lot. Hell, if someone tells me they really think they got me, I'll take it unless I saw the dart land elsewhere.
I did enjoy Hersh's runway-style walk in one part too.
Honestly, I was kind of a bitch last time about going to the celebrity delly. I only went b/c some asshole said I couldn't. Fixed their ass. However, I wouldn't mind ordering Pizzas from Tally-Ho this time, as it will certainly expedite the nerfing for the day.
You gotta be kidding me, if we've learned anything its that pizza is a no-no. If there's a Roy Roger's within an hour of this place, I'll come.

Edit: I just went on an emotional rollercoaster, being elated that we had a free party plane, and crestfallen when it fell through (which was obviously going to happen). So after browsing to the topic, is Ontario the best airport, assuming my plan works?
I can just imagine it now.
Paul: Ok, in the upcoming round you can either do a round with Primaries or a Multi-Team Battle. For the primaries, you can either play in the Resurrection Forest or the Grove. Those who wanna do the Grove, over here, otherwise over there. Anyone who wants to do a Multi-team battle, go over there.
This is gonna be ridiculous guys, better bring your thinking caps.
Luckily, I've made darts that actually inject water into the person they hit, so I'll be making sure everybody stays well hydrated.
We'll get together over the weekend sometime (oh yeah, Deal is tomorrow) and let you clowns know whats going.
We are not the Horsemen. They have planned Deal wars down to when people get to take a piss, and that works great for them, but that is not feasible for Apoc. How can we make rosters when people tell us they're bringing between 8 and 20 people? Having no idea about how 1337 kids are also presents quite an issue in making teams ahead of time.
We'll let you guys know.
You have just doomed humanity. I went out on a limb for someone who doesn't even know how to properly make up an excuse to get out of something (see: Famine's post) and this is what I get. I will never be nice to anyone I don't know ever again thanks to you. From this moment on, I shall never "pay it forward" again.

Who knows, I might even spring for a gun of my own between now and then.
I look forward to this war and the strict training schedule that always accompanies it.
I will not be able to make the war, but would anyone be able to get some high-quality footage and maybe some interviews with famous nerfers? I am planning on making an episode on the channel dedicated to Apoc 2014 since it is hard to find good Apoc footage. Thanks guys.
If there is any of the good ol' days footage it would be practically unwatchable. Our site used to be on the archive.org wayback machine but I can't get to it anymore.
As long as no one tries to use an Ocean County map to find the meeting place, we'll be fine.
I vote for the rallying spot to be a place with BOTH lap dances and a buffet. And as for these new games types, I can only hope that my dreams of playing naked CTF come to fruition.
