I'm sorry guys, I just had to add something to this.
It's not complete, but, you will catch my style when you are done with the first part, and I haven't edited it, but you can tell by the part below if the finished product could be acceptable or not.
[the future of your inner child]
Have you ever seen a foam dart blaster? You know, one of those things that you put a little foam dart in, pump it or prime it, and then shoot about 20 feet? Those are great fun for kids and in the office cubicles.
But yet, it gets kind of lame when you try to fire more then 20 feet, doesn't it. Now days, if you are seen with one of those things, you are pointed to airsoft or paintball, being convinced in one way or another that they are more “Real,” or, “Manly” Wouldn't it be great to avoid that encounter and surprise your friends with something different all together?

Before we get to far ahead, lets cover some of the basics:
Nerf blaster normally fire small, foam darts made by Hasbro. Now, thanks to a guy named Stefan, we can fire a form of dart called, [you guessed it] a Stefan. Stefans are foam backer rod, basically cut down to two inches and then weighted and glued over via hot glue. By putting in a weight, [normally a BB or small fishing weight] we give it more power upon being shot. By covering the top with a hot glue dome, we make it aerodynamic, not to mention leaving a sting when it hits. As long as one wears proper eye protection, however, no injuries will come from a properly modified blaster.
The blaster itself? Well, that's the really fun part. Modifications to the inside of a blaster can vary from merely removing pieces in the barrel to help the air flow, all the way to gutting out the whole shell and sticking the internals of a new gun inside.
Most blasters are powered by a small spring-operated piston. These are commonly known as “Springers” On springers, one would most often replace the spring inside the piston with a stronger one, giving the plunger head more power as it pushes the air from the piston into the barrel, and to the dart. Also, there is a small o-ring around the plunger head, which can be replaced, modified, or re-enforced with electric tape or another o-ring.
There are other blasters that are powered by an air-operated piston....
