This poll makes me happy. I was beginning to think that using Nerf brand blasters at wars was a dying fad. I myself use an overhauled 3B with an internal RSCB at wars. It doesn't get homemade ranges at all, but it's still fun. I intend to use Nerf guns at Nerf wars forever.

I use a singled 2K for everything, and when I can't use it, I use a singled NF. (No, that 2K does not have an aluminum tank in it, though my latest primary that has not been war-tested does.)

I've got way too many orders right now. If you want a 2K tank anything, it's gonna take a while.

I'm still rocking my old singled longshot. While it only shoots around 70 feet, it's the most accurate and reliable blaster that I own. I occasionally use my plusbow or my snap when I need more firepower (or even dual wield speed-loaded nitefinders), but I always seem to find myself going back to that longshot.

At non NIC wars I host I use a modded Jolt and alpha trooper and arrowstorm. At NIC wars I've been using a SNAP, brassed LS, NF, Big blast, and a Semi auto firefly (big salvo tank).

I dont care about what gun you used, thats not the point. Also people are blatantly lying about when they started going to organized wars so they look cool.

I gave up on Hasbro a while ago.
too many reverse plungers and disc shooters nowadays. Fucking pathetic.

Long live Buzz Bee and Lanard!
Even though I have a special place in my heart for ERTL.

Nerf needs to clean up their act.
The only reason I haven`t stopped calling them "Nerf" wars, is because I haven't thought of or heard of anything better.
Majority of wars I attend/host nowadays I don't see that much Nerf brand hardware.

It's only when someone brings out one of the newer guns to show people between rounds.
Everyone's thinking the same thing
"It's cute and quirky and might work in close quarters but there is no way I'm spending $30-$50 on that"
"Maybe I can use the shell and put something better on the inside."
"That gun is like a roid monkey or an annorexic supermodel, Looks good on the outside, but inside its ugly, decrepit and weak."
I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

This generation of Nerf sucks. I wish I was a part of the old generation, like when they made the Longshot! Make Nerf bring back the Longshot! Thumbs up if you agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pants did a good job, but I'm going to take it a step further and say specifically that Just Some Bob and TaerKitty are mad lying in their vote about when they started going to outdoor wars organized on NH. I would also like to say that no matter what they do they will never look cool.

Re below: You might notice that there is no name TaerKitty on the list of people who say they started going to outdoor wars organized on NH in 2009. You might also notice that his name is listed on names of people who say they started doing that before 2008. Way to misrepresent data, butthole touchers.

Where is Taer lying about when he started going to organized wars? Taers first war was the SOFail in 09.

Getting back to the topic:
For regular game play the last time I used a Nerf brand as a primary ( without completely gutting the internals ) was last year. I used a singled LS with a Recon integrated underneath it. If I remember correctly I only used it a few rounds then switched it out to my PAS.
Now for Zombie type games I use a lot of the Nerf brand blaster's because of the low range, especially the newer ones.

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.

The last time I used a Nerf gun as a primary was 2007 Apoc. That was when "Civil War" was an Apoc gametype, haha. You can see me run by in the video with that and a nitefinder. However, it wasn't a very successful showing because it was so outclassed at open venues like Deal. So, I went back to max shots and later Max, the maximizer. When he tragically blew himself up, I used a PAS and finally switched over to homemade only.

I'd say that personal preference and the changing Nerf scene influenced my avoidance of Nerf brand blasters over the years. It was easier to experiment in the speedloader era and pick the primary that was the most fun to use. Lever-action speedloader guns like the max shot and maximizer were just plain fun. Nerf's offerings were just meh. My longshot also chewed through darts the way hoppers do now. When I chose Max, I didn't even need to bring 100 darts to a war, it was great. That thing was also well-suited to survive the higher ROF, RSCB era and there was no reason to switch, just like how my PAS was well-suited to survive the pump action, hoppered homemade era. These blaster selections allowed me to linger in the past technologies that I still found fun, while most everyone else moved on. I guess you could say that the crossbow could have provided a stable option throughout, but again, personal preference. I never wanted one because so many people wanted one, at prices not worth competing for.

Even if Nerf gets its act together and produces dependable, easy to mod, high potential primaries, I couldn't see myself going back to them at this point. They'd have to top the Rainbowpump. Right now, I am perfectly matched with this blaster, the way I was with Max in 2008 and 2009. Blasters like the Alpha Trooper were fun in college HvZ and hallway wars, but not for most NIC wars.

Actually, I just remembered that I used a pair of AT3Ks at a BFNY once. However, I don't remember which one it was other than being really early. I think it was before the bees and it was definitely before I started using Max.

Mid last year I developed a passion for vintage blasters, seeing as my local area needed something other than clip fed RPs.

So, I still extensively use my Lock'n'Load as a dedicated backup, and my Crossbow is probably my most used primary. I have been moving to homemades recently, but more as a building project, rather than for actual primary use, seeing as people still see 60ft as "good enough" for wars.

Started actively warring in NIC wars since late 2010, then my participation and organisation boomed as I decided to fill the rather large hole of lacklustre blaster performance and infrequent wars.

I have just finished up a 3K, which I intend to use as a primary. Prior to that I used a pulse strike and/or JSPB.

I use a rscb BnA for pretty much the an entire war, I normally only switch it out when someone lets me use a cool looking project that they have worked on.

And why should you care? If you don't have any trust that this community is truthful, why start a poll?
