First of all, learn how to spell. Second, you don't need support, just cash. Third, your not alone, my parents said i'll be lucky if I get 2 things off the internet in a year!

(nerf guns are ussually found at toys r us or walmart)

Thrift Stores normally have older guns, guns that aren't made anymore. The only problem with them is that they don't always have anything. Here is a link that may be helpful!

Ever since I was a kid, I had nerf guns. My parents were fine with it until recently, when I made my SM5K. After countless holes in the wall, my parents are regretting ever buying me my guns.

Like the other guy said, you don't really need support... rebellion is always good, to a certain extent.

On another note, it's hard to take you "seriously" if you can't even spell the word correctly. I don't want to needlessly flame... but please check spelling, or use a fucking dictionary if you really don't know. This site is helpful when you don't know how to spell a word, or if some one uses a big word and you can't comprehend it.

That's all I have to say.

Know what's funny? You can't look something up in a dictionary to find out how to spell it unless you can spell it! Wahha........

First three letters buddy... sorry to burst what ever bubble you were in. Oh, and don't forget keywords. And another thing, once you see it on a page, your brain can regognize the word, and viola, you know how to spell your mystery word.

Recognize... I'm terrbly sorry, the "g" and "c" keys are quite close, and when you type fast, sometimes you don't exactly catch every last error like that.

Am I supposed to do something here? Christ... yet another flame war, that some one is bound step into.

Can't we end this... I do beleive the topic was started by some kid wanting help? Not started over how to spell, and catch every error. I may sound like a Hypocrite, because I made a spelling error, but my point remains.

Put this bloody fight to rest. Move on, and would somebody please kill this stupid topic? Anyone who has to broadcast what their parents say to them about their hobbies, needs help, or something to do in their very abundant spare time.

Blah blah blah blah..." when i meekly suggested that we might stop by toysrus on the way home to see if they had an Airtech 3000. See, ive got the cash, i need different parents

Ever thought about walking to the store? Or is it too far for you? How old are you anyway? I mean, ride a bike to the store if you have to. Or, if you are 15, steal your parent's car. No wait, don't try the last one.

Well, no. The store is too far from my house to walk. At least that's what my parents say. And about my age... I'm somewhere in between( I think I spelled that right,) 1 and 14 so no, stealing my parents car would be instant death. Besides, I don't want to drive a minivan, the old Taurus is gonna die on somebody real soon, and if I drove my dad's Honda S2000........I'd better have plane tickets to China or someplace else far away. And tht dictionary.com thing really insults my intelligence.

Most people would advise against this, but I would look in Toys 'R Us. I can still find NIB SM 5000's in there (dead serious). I would buy one, but I don't have enough money to support both airsoft and nerf.

There is an SM5K in Toys 'R Us?!?! THERE'S A SUPER MAXX 5000 IN TOYS 'R US?!?! Oh my god. I am going out tonight. I'm gonna buy that store out... well, no. I'll get one. Thanks for the great news.

Oh and "nerferdude", It was just a friendly reminder. No insult to your intelligence was intended. Just remember, spelling words right helps out alot when you are making a serious post, which should be the only post made on this forum... but sometimes that doesn't happen.

Goodluck with Nerf, I hope you figure out a way to make this work.

Um, well. That makes no sense to me. According to your screen name, you are nerferdude. I don't know who nerfdude is, but my eyes don't have a history of lying, and they clearly see your name as nerferdude. I don't get what you are trying to say.

Could you clear that up, because right now, you are really annoying me with all these posts about this... it's pretty much over, wouldn't you say?

Nerfdude is an old school vet from the Listserv days, when this newcomer chose the handle Nerferdude Vacc pointed out that the two were uncomfortably similar. What'd I'd like to know is how the fuck someone who's been here for less than a month has already accumulated almost as many posts as me.

I also find it funny that someone who's been here less than a month has the presumed to power to declare a topic "closed" and then try to discourage someone who not only; registered here before them, but who has also managed to keep their post count to a civilized number.

In an attempt to help a nerfer out: Many parents become uneasy when their children begin breaking out the shop tools to modify dart guns or, worse yet, start asking for trips to Home Depot so they can buy ball barings, duct tape, fbr, and hot glue. In this "Age of Terror" as I call it, parents have become overly sensitive and suspicious of this children's activities.

The first thing you need to do is disarm their fears and paranoia. Invite them to come watch you Nerf the first few times or at least meet anyone you might be Nerfing with. Tell them that it's not like paintball or airsoft where projectiles are being fired at 150+ fps, it doesn't hurt if you get hit. Also, if they're still concerned about your safety, tell them that you'll wear sunglasses or protective eyeware while playing.

Once they realize that Nerf itself is not dangerous or some sort of Israeli Terrorist Training Game they'll gradually become more and more accepting. Unless you're Amish, Asian, or from the Bible Belt; then you are fucked my friend.

Peace.

Nice... really put it up there. I like your direct approch to giving me a piece of your mind... I would respect you more if it was more of a friendly shut the fuck up, than a nasty annoyed neighbour kind of shut the fuck up.

I agree on what you said about letting your parents into your Nerf experience. My dad helps me mod sometimes, and he has fun shooting my guns aswell. My dad was uneasy about me modding guns, but once he saw that it was constructive, and it kept me from bothering my sister, and her bothering me, he was acceptinf of it.

You should have FUN with Nerf, and your parents need to know that it is truely that... fun. Teach them the ways of Nerf, and show them that it's no more than something you love to do. Maybe after all of that... you'll get your ride to the store to pick up another gun.

No hard feelings Famine... didn't mean to aggravate you in such a way. I hope we can fix this disagreement? Or maybe not if you wanna act really badass, and don't wanna patch things up, and keep a grudge against me. Either way, it's your choice.

Whats that supposed to mean? :rolleyes:

And nerferdude, just tell your parents that if you become an engineer when you grow up, modding nerf guns will help you understand air pressure and physics.

are you dumb? do you see the part of my quote that says: "quote (nerferdude..."? you are nerferdude, so before you yell at people about how dumb they are for not reading your name right, how about you spell your fucking name right when you register.
