I'm curious about how many of us 'nerfers' actually use Nerf brand blasters at NIC nerf wars. I'm only interested in what you use as your primary under normal circumstances. If you'reusing a modded stampede for attack/defend rounds, or you have a nitefinder for pistol rounds, that doesn't count, nor do nerf shells with homemade or off-brand internals. Personally, I haven't used my crossbow since 2010, and I was one of the late adopters in my area. By 2011 the majority of people at Apoc had lanard/buzz bee blasters or homemade springers.

Well not for lack of trying but I still use my BBB at wars. I have 2 longshots that I use occasionally as well.

Well, never actually used a nerf-brand blaster as a primary for wars. My modding started out with nerf (mavs, titan, hyperfires, fureyfires, a raider, a LS, etc), but once I was ready to start warring I got a PAS and coupler'd it, and that was my primary for all the wars I've been to where I actually participated (a whopping two, one basic Cinci war and then Revolution). I have since upgraded to an awesome self-built pullback rainbow, which i use with a hopper, and which I will use for all conceivable future wars until I come up with something even more awesome, maybe a Lazer Tag Master Blaster with rainbow internals and a Titan integration, or a Tornado Bow.

And Langley, does that crossbow of yours have homemade internals?

I occasionally use my 2K that I picked up at Apoc 2011 because the damned thing shoots supa hard.

At DCNF 3, I used the AT3K I got from Chaos for half of a single round, because it was near unusable for me with no brass stubs to hold the stefans, but i'm not counting that.

At DCNF 1.5 I used me singled LongShot from Sharvil so i'm saying that in like June 2011 was the last time I used a Nerf blaster for a primary.

I've never even been to an NIC organized war before. :( However, I might be going to TANGO 6! And if so, I'll probably be using some type of Nerf blaster. However, I'll probably use my Max Shot for a couple of rounds.

I had to vote 2011, but only because I haven't been to an NIC war since then. I still make use of my BBB w/ integrated Switch Shot. It is my most reliable primary currently - it has never failed on me, which I can't say for any other primary I own.

I'll occasionally throw a 35 round drum in my ar removed ls when I get the silly urge to spam darts.

It is interesting to note that so far most nerf brand blasters being used are air techs and older. I expect to see some saying they use nf's in pistol rounds, or maybe a stampede as a primary... Could that mean nerf is loosing its competitive edge for modding? It wasn't until reading this thread that I realized how heavily I relied on off brands like Buzz bee, lanard, ertl, and more recently marshmallow shooters as base components for my blasters.

I would consider that a vote for "Still using one". If you intend to continue using your nerf brand blaster, please vote "Still using one". Only vote for one of the other options if you have made a conscious decision to use something other than a Nerf brand blaster.

I had a stock-only war with mostly Vortex blasters recently, but it wasn't an NIC war - it was more of an attempt to get the locals interested in nerfing. I'll slowly easy them into building homemade blasters over the next few months.

The last Nerf brand blaster I used as a regular primary was my Splitfire back in the spring of 2010. I've used purely homemade blasters since then.

My style is ARR Recon. It/they (I own two) have been my trusty sidekicks since as long as I can remember. Mostly because I run. A LOT. However, upon trying this at APOC '11, I got my @$$ handed to me on a PVC platter. But for my wars, they work great!

Although I have never attended a NIC organized war, I do go to a weekly war at a near-by college. I mostly use my FAR and SGN-R3L, but sometimes I use a stampede (heavily modified), or a AR-less, NF springed, hyperfire. All of these with stock darts.

Okay, that does it! I'm going to take a 3B to the next Effin' so I can change my vote! (But, the last time was when I broke Tantum's 3K in 2009, at current time.)

However, I know one guy last year used an AR-less AT and drums (and his feet) with devastating efficiency. In fact, I built the Mo'Raider for him this year, if I can ever get my side plates done.

If I ever find a Rayven on CL, I may upvolt that and try it out as a primary as well.

I'm quite fond of a good 'ole Longshot and I always use NF's as pistols. However, I do also use a PAS and a Pump-SNAP a lot more frequently as primaries.

My primary is a Buzz Bee branded blaster with heavy modifications, but the sidearm I carry is a SplitFire.
