Count me in. I also have a question, I am coming from the Detroit, MI area, so I might be there an hour or so late (I live 4 hours away), would that be okay? I've been waiting for this war for a year, its going to be sweet!

EDIT: I can make it on time.

The U3 is interested in the possibility of coming, since it's closer than New Jersey is. I'm not seeing restrictions, so, just for clarification, can we use our prototype 15/32" steel ball domed darts?

Also, how racy are our costumes allowed to be?

Ammo is pretty much whatever, from the time I've spent there. Slingshot, 2 bb's, whatever floats the boat. Obviously, don't use tacks or anything dumb, but otherwise it's free range.

Also, Ice, I think the rules about sexual harassment and man boobs still apply here. lol.

I encourage everyone to arrive on time.
However I would rather you show up an hour late then not show up at all.

As long as the Stefans are not opening people I don`t have a problem with it.
I am curious to see these stefans in person.

Bring em on.

Opening people? What?

You mean like bleeding? Because I'm 100% sure slingshot darts do the same thing.

You're avoiding my question. You said "opening" people up.

What does that mean? Is that Canadian for, "I'm ignorant", or did I miss something?

...Cutting people open? Wounding? Drawing blood? As long as the darts don't break skin we Canadians really don't give a flying fuck.

I'm in. There's no way I'm missing it this time.

Well I'm kinda confused, because slingshot darts definitely "open" people up. So either your rules or flawed, or you're just dumb.

Okay so either your slingshot darts are different than ours or you just have thin skin.

This is Ryan's special way of telling you that with modern nerf blasters (which you may or may not use in the land of Canadia), unpadded darts with slingshot (or similar) weights will break skin. Your nerf blasters may be less powerful than the ones that we typically use (which are, on average, slightly less powerful than a +bow, or about the same as an unplugged BBBB), or maybe you just never got hit in just the wrong way. But, they are capable of breaking skin, and it's absolutely mindblowing that people will go to a public park and use unpadded darts. The ad-hoc regulation of blasters was never sufficient to prevent safety problems, but it was close enough to give that illusion until powerful homemade / modded springers became common.

Personally, I don't like shooting people with unpadded ammo, because I will feel bad about ruining people, and feel worse about getting sued for an unlikely (but possible) serious injury. For that reason, I did a lot of work with stock ammo prior to adopting slugs for their compatibility with hopper clips.

Well if it breaks skin most of the time then don't bring it.
I just want everyone to have a good time.

I would love to have the U3 come out to a war because I don't believe I have Nerfed with them before.

At personal risk, I'm adding my two cents here.

From my experience up there last time, darts were never an issue. Sure, some guns used the slingshots perfectly (a few singled Big Blasts, and Doomsayer come to mind), but generally there wasn't anything too powerful. And even then you have to consider the foam being used. I know FA's darts were in wide use, and it's fairly wide compared to the CPVC-fitting darts I use and am used to. Heck, my (currently in repair) RFSG with very crappy single bb's and CPVC, with less springs, was shooting only a bit short of FA's gun, and I'm guessing the foam itself was the difference.

Plus it's not the most n00bish of groups we're talking about; generally everyone there knows what they're doing (Although shooting Dr. Science at close range with the Doomsayer just for the camera was hilarious), and even in situations like that, the worst I ever saw was the giant welt FA got when someone accidentally discharged into his knee. Even then, I don't remember that drawing blood.

Tl:dr - not all slingshot darts are the same, and sometimes people do actually know what they're doing.

I'm not worried about whether or not I will bring dangerous darts. I pick up darts from the ground in-game, and use them. I don't have time to examine the dart to determine if it is or is not a death dart while i'm under fire, nor do I want to tell a police officer that my blasters are just toys, despite the fact that they will wound people at close range with the ammo that's lying all over the field.

Edit for Buffdaddy:

I saw some big blasts and +bows in that mix, which are definitely capable of breaking skin at close range. I think the rarity of close-range hits on bare skin give the illusion that these darts are safe. I'd be OK with a war with heavy, unpadded darts if everyone was wearing hardcore eye protection, and it took place on private property. But the current practice is just asking for trouble.

Fair enough; you certainly have more experience in this area than I do, so I think it's best I defer. False sense of security can certainly be a bad thing; seen too many chem classmates take acids/bases lightly and pour them onto something other than the intended target b/c they're too busy talking. Even in full gear, that's a bad thing.

I have a healthy mix of everything (slingshot, bb, slug)in my bag, so I'll just sort through stuff before rounds and try to use common sense.

Oh, chem goggles are a wonderful thing for Nerf wars.
