Koree: Busta, SA, and I should be going to your war. I have a few questions that you should answer here so that everyone knows:

1) Do you use stock darts?
2) Will we get supplied with darts?
3) What are the restrictions on guns?
4) How will we find you when we get to Hamline?
5) Is the staff and stuff okay with us coming?
6) How late does it go until?

I think I can pop in for a little bit on Saturday - that's very close to where I live.

venom and Busta: Do you want me to bring any of the guns I sold to you?

There are nerf wars at hamline every week? How did I not know about this?

Absolutely. I already have your breeches made and everything. Heck, I'm even looking to get rid of another (The one I used at Minnesnowta) so if anyone wants one, I would let it go super cheap. Like, maybe 5 at most. Yes, I sell things cheap.

Yes, stock darts, (its pretty CQB, its a large area but has walls and such therefore it gets reduced to CQB)

We have a rather large box of stock darts

Ouch factor is the biggest restriction. I'd say if you are not willing to take a HEADSHOT from it at 20 feet, don't bring it. Especially because we tend to get a lot of headshots peaking out from cover at this range. I'd prefer them shooting stock darts.



I'll give you a phone number or something on saturday afternoon.

Staff will be fine with it, it's a school sanctioned event.

7-10 is the planned time, but we usually start set up at 6:30.

Please keep your guns in a bag or something till you get to the playing area. :)

Dang it Beaver, you had a 4B that worked!?!
I got one from Target and the dang pump doesn't even move air! (the pump is just loose)
Enough ranting. Now I have to go back over there so I can have a good air primary for this war.
Hopefully, though, the Wadena (3 hours north) Walmart has red BBBs (or Barney Purple) so I can get a non-SNAP springer primary to use. (We will have two snaps to use there, also)
Whatever.
Really excited to come, but the parents are still skeptical...

Okay, I explained everything to my dad. He says it's all okay, but he will pick me up at 9 at the latest. It's fine with me, that's still two awesome hours for an indoor war. Julian and I should arrive early, since we probably won't be doing anything else. This is going to be awesome. By the way, SA isn't coming, unless he changes his mind. My friend Cashew should be at the outdoor war, but hes probably going on a date during the indoor one.

Nerf Bros: Are you coming to the Mini war, or just MNSBW itself?

So no money from him for the SNAP I built? Fuck, thats how Im playing you for the 1500... Ugh, PISSSSSS

And man, now I need stock guns. Or my Mav. Thats a good gun. But wait, do they need to be stock or can they be lightly modded?

Enough ranting.

All of the new 4Bs are like this. You need to pump them about 12 times just to trigger the OPV valve, since the seal in the pump is so loose. I threw a few layers of teflon tape on it, and it seems to work a lot better now.

I may or may not be able to go to the hamline war. I don't really have appropriate weaponry for an indoor war at the moment - I'll have to throw together a CPVC'd tek6 for this. Would if be okay If I used felt/washer darts instead of stock darts?

Julian: your Mav will work good if ranges are very low. I can lend out voluminous quantities of tek6's as well.

You can borrow a Mav or DTG of mine, no problem. They both have ARs removed. You should really come. Ever since I went to the noobfest retarded war on New Years Eve (I'll tell the story on Saturday), I've wanted to go to a legit indoor war since. This is finally my chance.

....So, this is what happens when I can't get on for a couple of days...

A weekly war comes out and a mini war appears.

I might be able to go to the mini war but, I wont be able to go to the hamline war..



Is there any chance that this [mini war] could be rescheduled?

...or could there be other mini wars before Mnsbw?

Yeh I was talking about MNSBW. I'd love to come to the miniwars, but until I get a car that isn't a possibility.
Hey beaver, I pumped it 50 times, and I got nada. A tank detonation would have been nice.

That one must be defective. Return it, and if you get a new one, test it right after you buy it so you don't have to make the trip back if it doesn't work.

Koree, your indoor war was the BEAST. The group of people who Nerf with are fun and energetic and open to new play types, plus the bomb was actually really really fun. Awesome indoor war.

And the smaller war, well, Beaver, atomatron, Venom, Koree, Crazy and I decided that hosting all the wars there from now on would be awesome. Close restaurants, urban building for Nerfing fun, open fields, playgrounds, and better yet, on site bathrooms during the summer. That, and its close for some people. Its a good field to play on, and we could even rent it out, as it only costs around $50 to rent, and that gives you full indoor access, and a permit.

Hahaha double posts... Anyways, Koree that indoor war was insane, definitely going again. I love that while there, we made a new zombie game, I'm going to call it "Get to the choppa!". Anyways the mini war didn't really have many interesting things while I was there except busta's super dive.

I liked the outdoor location more than highland park. I'll get pictures up eventually. I'll have to make it to Koree's indoor war in the future.

Wow, sounds cool. So it's only $50 to rent out the place? Thats pretty cheap if you consider hosting ~20 people. Only a few bucks a person. How many people does the outdoor field accomodate? And how about indoors?

I'm not that big of a fan of nerfing indoors. Most of the guns everyone has are concentrated toward using them outside. I wouldn't want to shoot anyone with a gun that shoots 100+ feet indoors.

But still cool nonetheless.

The indoor area isn't large enough to have rounds in it but you could keep stuff in there if we rent the place.

I'd be worth it if it was air conditioned. Last few years at SPANO it has been close to 100 degrees.

Thats a good point Gage. I would love being able to put my stuff in there and not having to worry about it blowing away in the wind or some non-nerfer coming and messing with it. Since everyone loves that place so much, I think I'm going to change the location to Newell Park. Are there any objections to chainging the location of MNSBW to Newell Park?

No objections from me because its about the same distance there as the other location and if it is air conditioned that would be great, if it isn't, that's horrible.

I don't think we will be renting it out for MNSBW, unless all the snow melts and/or the park becomes very popular. We should be able to take over a big enough section of the park just for our group. We won't need air conditioning for MNSBW either because it's guaranteed to be cold. Julian, can you tell us about Newell's popularity in early spring?
