Would you guys here at The Haven consider our self's nerdy. I mean come on we make things shoot foam up to 160 feet. Paintball defiantly leaves welts but so do nerf guns. We get welts (sometimes) and use tools that can cut your arms off. I say were pretty cool to make toys into almost weapons. That's pretty bitchen'.
This thread was wrong from the start. How about we all try to NOT sound like semi-militant otaku loners with veiled sadomasochistic tendencies? Fortunately, this does not seem to be the case, but posts like this make the rest of us look bad. Nerfing should be a part of one's well-rounded existence, not an excuse to pretend you're hurting people. And for the record, I'm with Slug and Angel on this one.
