FA_24's response to Ice's back pain thread:
I used to have that problem until I got circumcised. 15 pounds later I was able to stand up straight.

I'm sorry if I mislead you, but the rare earth magnets I was refering to are these:
They aren't really all that rare. I have them because my dad used to work for an engineering company.
And those are actually quite large when it comes to rare earth/neodymium magnets. They can be bought in many shapes and sizes, some much smaller than watch batteries even. They are available in cylinder, disc and block shapes, as well as many others. They are are ridiculously strong for their size, though some experimentation/calculation would be required to figure out how many and what size would be best for securely holding a magazine on a Nerf blaster like this.
If you were to decide to go the magnet route, I would build a small receiver box at the attachment point (something just larger than the mag that it will side up into. This will help guide the mag to where it needs to sit in order to work properly, and it will also help avoid knocking the mag off with a soft/moderate sideways impact - only a tug directly downward would easily shift the mag with a well-built receiver. This would be a very easy system for reloading - just tug down to release the mag in the blaster, then slip a new mag in (or load the empty first) and you're ready to go.
This has me thinking about trying to do something like this eventually. Dang it - now I have another project in my head that I won't be able to get to for a while!!!!

Edit: Also, I just noticed an extensive selection of rare-earth magnets in the Lee Valley hardware catalog. Spherical, hemispherical, ring, cylinder, cupped, everything you could want.
