Keep in mind the majority of us have actually been to a nerf war and know stuff that you probably don't. I'd say have at the very least 100 total.

I don't really think you needed to make another thread to aks what were going to be using.
But any way heres a little estimate for what you'll be facing (this is from everyone attending):
3 x-bows (me, Carrtoon, and Ryan), 2 Spitefires (me), a SM750 (me), a SM1500(me), a shit-ton of NFs, and some kick ass homemades (Hilt).

Here is what I will probably bring, if I finish working on everything in time. LS, RF20, MS, LnL, SS2, Titan, Nit-Mav, NF, Hornet, Barricade Buster, a homemade, and 200+ Stefans. I will have to see when I finish working on all the guns and which ones are the most war-ready. It also depends on how many people I have to supply.

Well I have news and a question. The news is that Zudikas (my clan-mate) is probably going to come if I do. My dad said he could take us to the war, but he would only let us stay for a few hours, not the whole day if he stays the whole time. So that leads to my question. Is there a place where we could keep our extra guns, food, or whatever else we would bring?

Yes, that was unnecessary.

I will be bringing only the best. My two (or three) singled AT2K's, Crossbow with an AT2K integrated, dual SS2's, Lord of the Rings Crossbow (thanks Carrtoon), my LBB, my backpack Titan and last but not least the +bow, hoping it is done in time.

Just to let you guys know I might be a little bit late to the war since I will be leaving from here the day of the war. I have to work the night before til either 1 or 2 am, and then sleep for a couple hours and then drive up there. Hopefully I can take off the night early and get some sleep. Thank god I won't be driving back after the war like last year.

I will be there for the Saturday night, and I don't know how close ya'll live around the actual site but maybe you guys could take me out to see the sites while I'm up there, or just shoot the shit. It's going to be boring in a hotel room by myself, so I have to keep myself occupied beforehand..

I will also be bringing all of my tools necessary to repair almost anything in case of emergency. You guys are more than welcome to borrow them if you need them.

Oh and bring money. I might sell off my +bow assuming it's done. I have enough materials to make two so I'm going to keep one and sell one.

Well, he actually isn't really. I think what will end up happening if Zudikas and I do come is: My dad will take us just for a few hours, or my sister and/or one of her friends will take us for most of it, if not the whole day.

Most likely I'm going to sell it to sam, but probably around $100.

I will likely be wielding dual NFs again since it's unmistakably badass to do so and I like working on a minimum. Other than that, I have a couple of AT2ks in dire need of tune-ups, a couple PowerClips, a BBB, and I might bring the EaB this time around. I don't have any war time in on it. My buddy will also be toting an SM5000 and probably like a SM750 or SS2 or something as a side arm. We still have to plan our arsenal. That's a sneak peak at what I remember is in working order. I have a SM1500 that's been on the workbench for at least 2 years now and I don't think I'll get that in working condition before the war. Doesn't mean I won't try...

Time's winding down. Hopefully most of the snow vacates the premises. It was ideal last year in my opinion. Should be fun any way we look at it, but good conditions always help.

I'm glad you all are keeping yourselves in line. Yes, time is winding down.

I have to apologize for my lack of potent action lately; long story short, I've been having trouble keeping my life in order. However, this coming week should be the end of most of it and I can get back on track doing a little more than just moving people from the "Potential" list to the "Official" list.
'Till then.

EDIT: Also, I wanted to mention there may be a representative from Hamline's Nerf Community. They saw the event I have on Facebook.

I haven't posted in a long while here, and I would like to make a valiant come back by saying, YES I will be attending. I plan to use my whole arsenal, which includes my Christmas gun, BBB, NFs and Mavs (Yes mavs. Because i can) and some assorted others. Maybe means me pulling off a new mod for another gun I can pick up. I plan to come, I know the area very well and can recomend lots of stuff.

Restaurant ideas?

Anything else I can do to help advance this war in the right direction i can do.

Even if that means kicking some friends off of their computers long enough to Nerf. I can probably snag a friend or too depending on their level of enthrall from Counter Strike.

EDIT: HAppy now? Kicking them off their computers.

Please no beating off your friends.

Haha, you need to word that differently.

Hehe, I thought the same thing. I looked at the board index and saw a new post in this thread from Carbon..

Got me excited there.

Summer though...looking forward to that as well.

No... just no. It was poorly worded but did you really need to take it there? I mean really. It was shit tasktic grammar because I was in shock after seeing the pictures for the Nerf Vulcan. Cut me some slack alright?

A slight setback for me is a serious lack of dartage. I think I have some of your's still, Sam, and you'll see them back. But since I've been at school, I've had a lack of supplies to make a batch of stefans. Granted, it shouldn't hinder war participation, but any darts my buddy and I could borrow for the day would be superb. They will be returned at the end of the day. I'm up in the North Country this weekend and I'll try to get several stefans made today, but I think I'm running low on FBR too. I'll make an effort.

~Rings

PS: Anybody know if Jangadance can make it or is going to try to? That gun of his was badass.

Still using stock Darts? If not what barrel material will you be using? I've got extra megas, stock darts, and darts that will fit in CPVC (assuming Venom doesn't need them) that I'd be willing to lend/sell to you.

Mmk.

Guns:
I'm bringing: All of them.
Definite guns for personal use: Oreo, Dual CFs.
Possible guns for personal use: Hitchcock, Orochi, PC, At2k... depends on game types.

Rides:
PMed Messiah and Kanamanableagh. about rides. They are each about 30 mins away from me (in different directions), so if anybody else lives closer to them (in St. Paul or by Hennepin Community College, respectively), please consider offering them a ride instead -- via PM so no addresses are made public.

Rings:
I can loan you stock darts again, otherwise I have 3 bags of FBR that will be darts by the time the war rolls around. I use 9/16" brass or 5/8" PETG.

Food:
There are plenty of fast food places up Snelling Avenue, within 5-10 minutes of the park: Arby's and Dairy Queen for sure, Sam can probably name more. It never hurts to make your own lunch though.

Trading:
Don't flood this thread with negotiations (that doesn't mean they aren't allowed).
At the war, in order to maximize playing time, trading discussions will be limited to lunchtime and after the war. You can ask to borrow a gun to "try out" before purchasing, but don't spend ten minutes negotiating prices until the designated times.

Game types:
Capture the Flag
Assault (1 Flag)
Sharpshooters vs. (in the tower)
FFAs (pistols only?)
Team battle (3+ teams)

Discuss what we should do most of, and what we should do the least of. Doing this in the thread will hopefully reduce down time at the war. Personally, I think we should do Sharpshooters vs. whenever the tower is available, but otherwise stick to CTF with the occasional round of Assault, FFA and Team Battles.

Attendance:
Looking good. If Messiah and Kanashimi get rides and those in my clan who have committed stay committed, we're looking at 10 (official). Now, if everyone could just get one friend...
Be there at 9:45. If you'll notice I've changed the time to say "guns firing at 10." That means get there and be geared up and ready to get shot by 9:59. Please.

Did I miss anything?
