The person might change the listing after they realize what they have done.
But if that happens, here is the Ebay auction
$48.98 USD for one Scout and 3 darts. No mention of modifications, it is stock and comes with nothing else other than the single shot pistol. :mellow:

Chill.
Yeah, it's not a good thing to do. But honestly, do you think any member here is going to buy a Scout, what many people think of as one of the worst Nerf guns ever, for $50?
I'm pretty sure no one here will do that. The whole Unity Set is cheaper.

Yeah, don't post ebay links. But man, That was just false advertising. Rare nerf gun? One of the best out there? You have to be kidding me.

Yeah, looks pretty horrific.

For some reason, nevertheless, I seem to have a soft spot in my heart for sellers who might, vaugly be mistaken/not know what they are talking about. :blush: I guess they remind me of me.

I sent him a message so let's see what happens. Talking nicely to the sellers had nice results HERE, [see last page] So maybe it will now.

You certainly have an interesting sense in humor. Personally, I find people charging 10x the regular price for a Nerf gun (or anything for that matter) extraordinarily painful.

Possibly me.... or maybe some other eBay seller that sold cheap stuff w/cheap listings.

On topic:

Here is what I sent the guy:

Dear hockeyteen22,

Hey man I hate to be a hater, but you really shouldn't lie to the poor eBayers just to make a sale. Now, if you aren't lying and really don't know that a scout ISN'T RARE and is among the top three WORST guns there are in the history of NERF, I'm okay with that, but if you know your stuff and are lying, you really need to shut it.
*This is not a threat* [for legal purposes] but you are putting yourself on a bad standing with everyone at Nerfhaven.com and others that see that stupid listing of yours.
Just trying to help...


- precisionnerfer


Here is what he sent me:

Dear precisionnerfer,

I know that these guns are wanted for an easy mod that can shoot it 80+. All I know is a bunch of foreign buyers want the gun and have asked me about it. I dont have any more of these guns left and havent seen them in a while, so I am asusming they will be/are retired with the new guns on the market.


- hockeyteen22


So, I'm guessing it's ignorance.

I don't really see how its funny. Besides the fact of me trying to image the retard who would try to sell a scout for that much.

When speaking about a swallow, always make sure you know whether it is an African or European swallow. It is very important.

It's a very simple mod.
1) Glue nerf dart to bottle rocket
2) Jam rocket/dart combo into gun and light fuse

Ha! That would make the Scout go 80 feet or more. If you count plastic shrapnel to be the Scout...

I don't know him, but it wasn't sarcasm. I would really, really, really like to egg his car.

I'm pretty sure LARPers like the scout because of its looks. I am trading two to get my crossbow painted.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.
