Well I went to target today because I heard that CS found one of those spiderman wrist guns for $2, instead I found plenty of other stuff on clearance.

All nerf stuff was marked down a little, but not a considerable amount. Iron man magstrikes were about $13, WTTFBs were $15, and Spy Gear Signal Launchers were about $5. And I assume that those Spiderman Wrist Blasters would be $2, but I couldn't find any. I personally got a Signal Launcher, but it's annoying because it's leaking out the barrel and I threw away the box outside the store, but I probably wouldn't return it anyway.

The target I went to was the Super Target in Apple Valley, MN.

The product awareness topic? Well yes, I know. But I think this is different. People usually post new topics for this kind of stuff. Examples: The SMDTG half off thread and the Big Blast $5 thread. That thread covers new items at stores more so than sales and clearances.

Yep, my target had clearance on nerf as well. I wanted to find some spider man guns, but I did pick up a disk shot expansion for 8 bucks.

Did you go on ahead and buy them all? I have yet to look into those much. I was thinking about the milton brand on amazon but decided against it since it wasn't free shipping. I'm so cheap. Are they powerful?

Funny, I was looking for those NatGeo things, but I guess they were all gone. Live it up while you can everyone! I especially recommend buying the Spy Gear Signal Launcher.

the Nat Geo guns shoot harder than a titan, I would strongly be against ever using them for darts(although I've done it a couple times as a way to make a makeshift primary out of an unmodded one), but as a way to shoot, Balls, Titan Rockets, and Mini-Vortex party favor footballs as viable war ammo, they are amazing. honestly, it actually shoots a titan rocket farther than a titan can.

so yes, I bought all I could, but sadly there was only one left, and it's just as iffy as my Uncle Milton one I got on amazon. My first Nat Geo gun was amazing, but it literally tore in half because of the torque my 1 1/2 inch ball-barrel coupler put on it. Sadness.

Any news from the Target in Brooklyn Park (just off West Broadway, next door to Cub Foods?) I'd go myself, but I'm still recovering from being super sick.

Sorry for bringing this thread so off topic, but what size barrel do you use for the vortex footballs?

My Target has seem to caught on to my need for Nerf guns and practically stopped selling them all together. They don't carry LS's, Recons, NF's,MS's, Titans, and BBB's. Now I'm pissed. Everything else is 1/2 of though!

My Target hasn't carried Recons or Titans for a while, they only have Iron Man Magstrikes, and they only had one BBB left in stock. But they don't carry LS or even NF's!?!? That sucks dude.

Well I went to target today because I heard that CS found one of those spiderman wrist guns for $2, instead I found plenty of other stuff on clearance.

I got it for $2 because I found it on a 30%-off endcap, it was in their salvage inventory and wasn't even in their barcode system anymore. When I took it to the cash register the shift manager just came over and asked me what I thought the MSRP price for it was and I replied "$5.99 I think". She then punched in $1.99 as the price.

At Target you should always make a point of checking the ends of the aisles.

Thats exactly where I was looking. I also looked near the Spiderman toys. Those are usually about $10, so even your estimate was low.

Just today at Target I picked up two disk shot refill packs for the price of one. They were about 7 dollars a peice. I also pissed off the guy by paying in mostly coins.

And the original MSRP was $15

Wow, I must be unlucky.

My Target's Nerf section IS an end cap, and all they have are Longshots, BBBs, Dart Tag sets, Nite Finders and Mavericks.

My TRU has a decent supply, but no Magstrikes, and I really want one of those.

2 store's section is an end cap with about 15 feet of wall facing that.

Clearance is rare at times at my stores since we are a college city (note OSU) and sell enough NERF that they don't need to have clearance.

You lucky dogs.

I got both of mine for $10.00. I think they are allowed though.
