To find nerfers near you, go to the Members Tab, click "Use Advanced Filters" in the top right corner, and select your state and/or country from the provided drop down menus.

If you live in the US, Canada, UK, or Australia, I recommend searching by choosing only the state/province you live in and leaving all other fields blank. If you live outside of those countries, select your country and leave all other fields blank. Searching using the "Location" field (the one that isn't a dropdown) is a bit hit-or-miss due the the wide variety of formats people have entered their location in, but it is also older and thus more commonly used. If you're coming up with a lot of old and inactive members, you can also restrict your search to members who have logged in recently by selecting a date in the "Last visit is after:" field.

As always, one of the easiest ways to find already active nerfers in your area is to check the 2012 Nerf War Schedule and keep an eye on the Nerf Wars Forum

New NerfHaven Feature. Please update your profile accordingly...

I have recently added two new custom fields to member profiles. Country, and State/Province. These fields are searchable in the members database and will be used in an upcoming nerfer mapping project. In order to help new nerfers find active nerfers and nerf wars, I ask that everyone update their profile with their information. The new fields can be found in the form of drop-down menus at the bottom of that page. You are welcome to leave them blank (or NULL), but to anyone intentionally entering misleading or humorous fake locations: if you make a joke of your location, I will make a joke of your account.

The old "Location" textbox will remain in use. You may continue to use it if you want to enter information more specific than your state. I recommend "City, State" format or your postal code. Usually, the nearest major city is the best way to go, or possibly your county if you live in a rural area.
