What's the biggest regret you have in Nerf? Mine was trading a Triple Strike and an AT3K for a used BBB during my first month of Nerfing. Man I wish I had those guns back. So lets hear yours.

Way too many to list. Most of them involve spraining my ankle at a war.

Some have been caught on tape.


Can't forget this one either.

I'm trying to find the footage from the first APOC where I jumped out of the woods w/o pumping my PC. That was a fucking let down.

Well, I remember as a child when I received my range shot and a pack of whistling airjet micros. I was exited about both, and I tried using some of the sonic darts in the RS. They didn't fire, and I found out that the barrel post was too big and it had ripped the dart. Being a child and therefore a total idiot, I tried to use every single one of my darts in the range shot, and ripped all of them. They were useless after that. I also regretted (I don't really care now) letting a friend use my range shot outside, they lost all the ammo except for one. Oh yeah, and also buying a Tommy 20.

When I was a lad, I had twin Secret Shot 1's, and a single EAB.
Somehow, the EAB got lost, and I was left with just the SS1's.
So sad, considering the mods for this gun nowadays.
Oh, the days before the intrawebz...

EDIT: I completely forgot.
The original BBB. I was doing the BBS, but completely fucked up with hot glue, trying to fill dead space.
Now I can't cock it, so I took the spring out.
It is now in the shit corner of the garage.

Spraining the lower end of my tibialis Anterior ( The muscle that runs up your shin.) at every fucking war I go to. If you try to raise your toes to your knee you will flex the muscle that gets me every time. All I need to do is stretch it before every war.

Biggest modification regret would probably be the first shot. Just as much work as a NF with little results.

Biggest regret above all. Putting faith in others to organize anything Nerf related. Early spring Nerf war in Mississauga supposed to be organized by Hexen. Never happened. 2 Assassin games organized by Hexen and Sway. Both of those never happened either due to the high ammount in procrastination and lazyness.

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.

So, you got shin splints? Or is this something else. I get shin splints regularly (never fully recovered from advanced shin splints from high school distance track).

My biggest regret was letting my brother toss out his SM5K because we lost the barrel attachment; all we had left was the ball attachment. About a year later I started modding and kicked myself regularly.

Getting sunburned at every NERF war I go to.

Oh yeah, and of course all those OMC moments where you rush somebody and realize your gun isn't primed/pumped. Nothing pisses me off more than that!

Not getting my Assassins game started up again my senior year in high school.

Other than that, I feel pretty solid in the majority of my decisions. Maybe that I didn't figure out my primary & sidearm sooner. I've had a new primary and sidearm at every war that I've been to.

Stopping Caring about if my cohorts paid me for/owned their guns.

Feeling compelled to make more then enough darts for everyone in SCUN before every war.

And my compulsive eBay addiction that I gained because of this hobby.

Yeah, I get shin splints too.
My greatest regret is buying the Recon. It sucked period.

Biggest regret is trying to do CaptainSlug's first Maverick mod on one of my mavericks instead of keeping it reletively stock. :P My other regret is not getting into Nerf until last year. Nerf modding is so much more hands on and do-it-yourself then Airsoft modding. Most airsoft modding would just be replacing internals with bought parts... boring.

My biggest regret was spending $50 every month on some new video game for my Wii before I got into nerfing. I could have made thousands and thousands of stefans, and gotten soooo many guns and modded them if I got into nerf just 6-8 months earlier. And I regret trying to mod my Magstrike only a week or so after I had modded my first gun, which was a BBB. The magstrike is currently as good as shit. Everything is broken. Oh, and killing a first generation TTG. (the type that fired megas). I almost brought it back to life, but yet, it only shoots 3 feet. :P
And a future thing I might regret, I am thinking about getting out of the NERF hobby and getting into RC cars and stuff. I got a Wheely king with a komodo dragon 19T motor. Man, that thing goes fast!

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

definitely destroying my first crossbow. I'd never dreamed people would want it, so I kinda killed it...with a hammer. I can't wait to get railed for that one.

Let's see:
1. Not finding the NIC sooner.
2. Assuming that the Supermaxx line sucked, and thinking that Larami should stick to super soakers...and therefore not buying any of them when they were in stores.
3.Not asking my parents to buy me a X-bow back in the day.

And, speaking of which...

definitely destroying my first crossbow. I'd never dreamed people would want it, so I kinda killed it...with a hammer. I can't wait to get railed for that one.

Murderer!

My biggest regret so far is not testing my spray paint on something else before using it on my longshot. I doubted that the type of paint would work, but I tried it anyway. Now I have to sand/scrape all of it off. 5 minutes of painting has turned into hours of sanding.

Not getting into nerf sooner, and not spending the money when I had it on guns and trying to mod them. Now I just don't really have the money to do that much. I'm lucky Falcon is so nice to me :P

Oh man, messing up my LS was fun, sanding down the catch of my RFR (on the plunger rod, not the actual catch), buying a recon, maverick, and a transformers gun.

I don't remember what I did, but I remember VACC suspending me for some reason. I don't even remember what I did, but I remember being suspended, and regretting what I didn't even know I did.
