An hour and a half, really? That's too long for a decent action movie. Also, I haven't been on one yet, so these still haven't been as good as they can be. I've got as many if not MORE war stories than Groove too.

Um, I think I'm missing on the map.

In other news, I'd think it'd be awesome to have most of if not an entire podcast dedicated to war stories from Groove, OMC, or others. It may seem kinda to the extreme, but it'd be entertaining to listen to, as long as it's not an hour and a half long. Maybe a half-hour.

Groove and I have attended MANY wars together, so a lot of our stories will overlap. I will start working on a list now that will make for good listening.

I liked this podcast a lot. It addressed the growing trend of "realistic" looking toy guns. I also liked the war stories, and the history of nerfing in Cincinnati. There was plenty of humor throughout and I thought the suggested new gametypes were interesting. OMC, have you never seen "Die Hard", or "The Matrix"? What about "300"?

Holy shit! I've only just listened to this and realised I get mentioned by name. Okay, it's in twitch's rant against realistic blasters but hey, better than nothing.

Also, my Clarkson inpression is a bit better than Twitch's. Just saying.

Its a shame our little sport has so many immature little punks. (this is not a reference to age) Any blaster that is painted to look like an actual firearm should be treated as such. I do not use my painted blasters in wars and I even leave the orange barrels. There's many players that have embraced the TOY GUN backbone of nerfing and painted their blasters with "Eye Raping" paint schemes but there are still many who have not.
BritNerfMogul was mentioned specifically because of the astounding work he has done in the area of painting blasters but the thought of people actually being stupid enough to use blasters like that in a public park, especially a park that I am also running around in with a slightly less conspicuous toy bothers me. When the cops show up, the game is over.... PERMANENTLY!!!!! As soon as the authorities get called your days of nerfing in that particular area are over and likely this ruling will stretch to the boundary of the city you just got in trouble in.

Does anyone really want to see "No Projectile firing toys" added to the growing lists of regulations at the local park you play at??? The only thing that is keeping additions like that off the ruleboard is the fact that we are currently under the radar.... Imagine if some liberal city council members got on youtube and looked up "High powered nerf airgun" and found vids of some asshatt blowing holes in full pop cans with a 4b shooting marbles?? Do you think they would still allow us in their park with our deadly weapons?

Once again I want to say, Some people have made fabulous looking blasters but these blasters have no business, on a school playground or in a city park which is where most of us are currently playing.

I own nearly 6 acres and have another couple available to me and I have been to public hunting grounds. I regularly walk around my property and public hunting areas with actual firearms that look LESS threatening than the toys that are being showcased in the Paint jobs thread. There are many safety rules that you follow when handling a real firearm. Keep action open, No magazine, point at ground, no running. If a police officer showed up on my land asking about my gun He would politely be told to go shit in his hat. If the same cop showed up at a public hunting area he could keep me busy all day long asking me questions and there's nothing I would be able to do until the officer was satisfied that I was carrying the firearm legally and carefully. If I was running around on a playground with this firearm I would be locked up and taken away, If I was underage my parents and or guardian would be locked up also.


Ok I guess I'm done ranting.... no offense Britnerfmogul the rant was not directed towards you in any way, unless you run around in public with those cause that would make you an asshole.

What we need is a separation of art and play.

when some kid does a sloppy job with a LongShot and a can of flat black.


http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=16495

when your visual mods consist of nothing more than removing the legally required safety markings because your too fucking lazy to disassemble the blaster Why would anyone believe you weren't too lazy to take the blaster apart to mod it at all? Note to anyone who thinks they can do a decent job without taking care to mask and carefully plan out a paint scheme, Then do nothing more than cover the safety markings. You need to be beat down at any war you show up at until you catch on.

this

case in point

Don, none taken.

I agree that If I take out any of my blasters in public, I deserve to be shot (and yes, even english police carry guns).
Now for my defense:

My blasters are mostly display or movie props. That's my other hobby. Some are being used right now in a zombie movie in my local town. Big budget kinda thing. This means orange barrel a no no.
Also, I nerf on private land, no public allowed. This means orange tips are not neccessary.

But anyone stupid enough to go out in public with a black blaster, see above.

And JSB is right too. My blasters are PROPS, not toys. I paint them because I enjoy it, but I also nerf with them because that's their purpose. If I were to come to the states to do a war, I would mod when I'm over there and leave off the paint job.

I just didn't like the fact I felt I was being lump with the knobs. I put alot of work into my blasters, and it's pretty much all I can offer to the NIC. To then be told that all I have to offer will actually ruin it, It kinda hurts your feelings.

Its kinda like how people have tight cars. Like those old cruisers? They keep em locked up to look at them, but drive a beater? Nerf is no different. Leave your realistic gun at home, regardless of its function, and just play with something working. Its purdy simple.

And Brit, with the green, and whatnot, the colors wouldn't matter that much. I mean, don't get me wrong, I guess they could still be taken for realistic, but thankfully with the tasteful way you did it, it still retains alot of the toy quality. Kinda like DT. He was a monster.

We have seen tons of painters for movie props come in, but you seem to be the most understanding. I like how you actually Nerf. It means you can understand both sides, and therefore do your best to see it that both sides of Nerf (Modding, wars, and then cosmetics and badassery) are kept at different levels. By actually understanding the barrier, you provide awesome paint jobs, that while would make good movie props, don't undermine the more mainstream principle of Nerf, which is fun. Others (Naija blue) had that problem, in which they would argue that anything not realistic was stupid and other crap like that.

Oh, and a wooden stock on a Recon is fucking monster.

Thank you. and damn right it's a monster. Bit of a weight issue thought.

I do have public war blasters, stuff for events in parks. It's all stock, but modded on the inside.

I'm mostly private in my war. It's me, my mates and a campsite hired out for the weekend with no access from the public. My pulse rifle comes out then.

I know when to use my head, and choose which blasters to use.

BritNerfMogul we did not intend to "lump" you in with the morons. We used your blasters as the highest example of painted blasters because you have posted recently. We are trying to bring attention to people who are just spray painting their blasters black and pretending they were painted in some creative fashion. Twitch is right about the danger and not all wars are hosted by responsible or even intelligent people. We would like to gain some support from the NIC itself to start some self policing from our smarter members that will hopefully trickle down to the emulators and wannabees.

I understand completely. Still left me feeling a bit funny thought. I felt I needed to explain my side so no one thought I was one of these arse's who goes out in public with black blasters. Now that I have done that I hope that common sense prevails and we see no all-black guns at wars.

BritNerfMogul, I am glad to learn you're one of those with wisdom sufficient to separate their realistically painted blasters from those used in public areas. If the other nerfers I have seen at wars made the same decisions, things would be that much better. I apologize if I offended you. Your name was mentioned for two reasons. The first being, as Badwrench stated, that you do fantastically detailed work, and the fact that you put a great deal of effort into the workpiece is obvious; naming your work would immediately call to mind the type of things which have caused (and I suspect will continue to cause) so much strife and concern. Your work was also some of the more recently posted, and fresh in the memory of others. Your work was used only as the most readily available sample, not because I harbor any ill-feelings toward you.

All the above goes for, Tigadee as well. (On the premise that he leaves his darker instruments at home.)


On a lighter note, my Clarkson-voice I'm sure was not exceptional, though I feel I made a valiant attempt at the inflection and tone he uses. I did not attempt an accent, as I'm positive it would've been horrendous.


On a related note, BritNerfMogul, have do ever painted any blasters in "eye-raping color schemes?" I'm sure they'd be quite the sight to behold.

But..... that means buying more paint. I'm too lazy to do that. :D

I will be giving it a go in the future, as I intend to come to a US war sometime next year.

As I have said, all is forgiven as I now know the reasons and understand fully the point being raised by using my work as an example.

Also, if you'd put his trademark pause it the intro, it would have made my day. I'll show you on the next podcast. The best podcast.....in the world!
