Shoot, Kane I forgot to get back to you about that my bad. Thursdays are bad for me, as I work an office job and get home late while Fridays in general don't work due to other social obligations (family and otherwise related) through May. If I can swing up there, I'll let you know!

By the way, as far as the darts go what foam is it? Does PETG fit it best?

It's all Ace foam or similar, so PETG is a perfect airgun / HAMP fit.

Alright, I thought this war went really well. Thanks to everyone who showed up!

Cheerios, I have your sword that you left behind.

Pros:
-Got to Nerf
-Received 2 BBBB's
-Met some cool people (Merz, LiterSize, Wicket)
-My friend tagged along
-Getting some fun rounds in
-Okay dart recovery
-Not getting shot in the face
-Buying a PVC wye from Kane

Cons:
-Mike's BBBB breaking. Sorry man.
-To much downtime
-A lot of people having to leave early
-Tetrastrike broke
-Realizing my PAS is very underpowered. It's frustrating.

Getting hit in the lip with short's 4B
Messing up my ankle dodging kane's blowgun
Had to leave early

We should definitely do this again sometime.

Yay! Shrubbery and hills make good cover. I got close enough to shoot at people with taggers.

+FANTASTIC location for a 8-16 person war. Lots of bushes, a few trees, and a big hill made the mobstacles unnecessary, but still useful.
+Got to use the new mobstacles
-No wind, so the mobstacles haven't really been tested
+Great weather
+The little tagger blowgun
-Almost everyone had to leave early
-Missing Bobbo, but still messing up his ankle
+Wet grass + hill = MAD SLIDES

Not much of a photographer, but heres a group pic
