First some formalities, most of you wont care but I'm very proud of some of this
Here is my load out:
Maverick is modded, AR's removed barrels dremeled out
That was the first mod I ever did, it took 6 tries to get it back together right, the white stuff is epoxy, after about 2 months of use the slider bar broke and I replaced it with some steel, works better then ever but sadly I cant disassemble it anymore, so no more mods, maybe on the next one
The little thing is the front end of the longshot, my most recent mod and one that im very proud of. AR's removed, O-ring added to the plunger and it gets about 30' maybe more if I get some stefans
Longshot has only cosmetic mods, wood blocks in the stock to keep it sturdy and bi-pod removed, I plan on adding a brass barrel and using the extended barrel (about 6" of it) to make it look nice and just a little extended out the front.
I only recently got into nerf, and im a Highschool, my mother is firmly anti-gun, it took me 17 years to convince her to let me get a TOY
But At this point most of my friends arent nerf players, im a classic "Geek" with geek friends so I knew if I made it easy I could get everyone into nerf.
I decided to host a large war for about 30 friends
I read the rules that are posted on the stickies and I love the concept and it seems to make play fair
I would like to hear some peoples experiences with their local events
I was planning on holding mine at a small park in the area, this park has a building, burnt down and rebuilt because of historical significance:
We scoped it out today, great place, cut grass, on top of a hill, nice grounds, nearby parking and an awesome pusedo-urban setting with 2 floors
But almost nobody has guns out of these 30 invites, so I wonder NerfHaven thinks of chargeing everyone a flat $12 entrance fee to the event we would buy everyone mavericks in a large lot and use the other $4 for extra ammo (2 100 dart boxes) and park rental
I pitched it as $10 to everyone and they were all very excited I doubt that another 2 would be a deal breaker
Im really hopeing I can host a good event I even designed a logo for this in-case we establish kind of a club.
So for some TL;DR questions
What do you think of a day at the park nerf war, free if you bring your own gun, pay $12 and get a Maverick and access to extra ammo when you lose it
What are some game types you love to do with friends?
Ive read a bunch of tutorials but what size brass tube should I buy to replace the barrel in a longshot lots of people have different ideas.
major edit: I was also planning to add the Nightfinder spring to the Longshot for improved range/power I think i read this in a tutorial has anyone done this? another edit, I might just take these to the mod section eventually but does anyone know of a site that sells cheaper in bulk, or perhaps after a threshold cuts the shipping
