Edit: That first war took place indoors in a 15'x30' room which is HUGE considering the craptastic ranges of the shell based guns. Luckily, the room was barren except for 3 couches which were used as forts/walls/cover. The hard vinyl floor also made things very slippery.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.

Probably dead by now, or something.

Well, let me explain (here comes the nostalgia). I started collecting/building up a formidable arsenal around '98. I already had a few odds and ends, but this is when I started buying one NERF gun with each paycheck from my part-time job @ McD's (back when I was in high school). The main push to build up my arsenal was to be able to "host wars." For me, this was group dating. We'd have anywhere from three to six couples armed with BlastFires, PowerClips (the three of these I had were the pride of my arsenal), my trusty SF, and many other 'Classics.' We'd all pick up our dates and then carpool over to a nearby elementary school that had a LARGE playground (actually named 'Fantasy Fortress') with a park next to it and we'd play for an hour or so. After that we'd go back to someone's house and make treats/dinner or watch or movie or play a game or some combination of the above. We had a lot of fun.
This continued through college and that's when things really took off. We had bigger dates with more people and for a while, my "NERF dates" were all the rage. Eventually modding the blasters became more and more exciting and I eventually moved to outdoor wars with all modified blasters. At first a couple girls still came along but eventually it became an all guy thing.
So that's the short version of why group dating led me to have hundreds of NERF guns and lots of ideas for improved foam flinging.

Then I probably got serious when I went to my friend's house down the street. He had a Unity Power System, a Maverick, and several Nitefinders, and we had a war. I was fascinated, especially with the maverick, and then I went to target and found a Maverick and Nitefinder on sale.
I bought them, and had a lot of fun using the almighty (back then, at least) Maverick as my primary. My friend always liked using the Nitefinder to shoot people in the face. We had lots of wars in my finished attic which,
back then had no furniture, just nooks that made great bases.
After I had those 2 guns, I got a Longshot. That thing was so awesome back when I had nothing else but a few pistols to compare it to. I liked using it as a super-awesome turret for defending bases (of course, now there's the vulcan for that) and it was just like, the ultimate weapon. Then I was hooked, and I got a Titan, which was awesome.
After that, I'm not sure what order I obtained them in exactly. I got a Dart Tag gun, a BBB, and a Firefly around christmas time last year, then I got a Tommy 20, a RF20, a Doubleshot, and more. So that's how it happened. Wow, it's just so nostalgic to look back on all this, it seems like it was just yesterday...

We're located in I-Don't-Give-a-Damn County, in scenic Shut-the-Hell-Up-achussets.
Maybe you're familiar with our annual charity drive where we ask for shit, and no one gives any.

That was untill last year when guys at school began talking about nerf wars (basicly assasin) and I got involved. Then I began to see pictures of painted guns from this site and I began too look for ways too make my third mav better than theirs. Soon after painting and modding it I bought more guns, and again turned to NH for tried and true mods.
I disliked my anonymity and inability to post so I applied for membership, and thats how it all started.
