I'll be frank here...I don't think we're going to have a lack of guests with the limitation on darts. Conversely, I don't want to steer anyone away from this fantastic event.

That being said, I can't think of a single good reason to use dome darts these days. Not a single one. With our high(er) powered blasters, slugs fly fantastically and are far less likely to cause injury. Additionally, they're range-limited by aerodynamics which levels the playing field.

#8 washers are acceptable. Just please inspect the edges as you assemble them, making sure there aren't any errant burs on the metal.

Dome BB darts are simple, cheap, effective, produce better ranges, more aerodynamic, and for me I have 800 made from the last war prep and about 100$ invested in materials. I really want to attend a war, but I cant afford the gas for a 5hr car trip and another $100 in supplies and my time to remake 800-1000 darts for me and my guests.

Read the update in the first post. Again, if there's an issue with the equipment required I won't offer apologies. It's about time Ohio catches up to everywhere else and uses proper gear.

I'd like to note in support of #6 washers that I'll be using them, as it turns out that they're what I already use (without even knowing it LOLFAIL) without any accuracy isuess as people have worried about. They seem to work better in hoppers to me than something wider (#8), and they're cheaper. But dang. I really hope the felt doesn't give issues with my hopper, otherwise I'll be stuck with just a speedloader.

I noticed with my HAMP that slugs actually work better with hoppers. I guess that the felt helps make the seal better.

If someone is happy to get me 200 or so felt pads, I should be able to half make my stefans over here, and I'll finish them at Flash's. I'd like white if I get a choice of colour...

Sorry lionhawk,

Heading down to Virgina is a bit too far out of the way.

And Brit,

I would recommend not going with the white felt pads, they unravel a bit too fast. I've heard the green and blacks ones are better.

Aren't they also a lot harder to find? It obviously wouldn't make much of a difference if your darts are some crazy color like red, but if, like me, your darts are grey or black, they could be kinda hard to find if the head doesn't at least show up through the grass. Also, why would one color be different in strength than another? According to McMaster the only difference is in the color.

Unless, of course, McMaster is racist (isn't EVERYTHING racist these days in this politically-correct word?) and shows preference to one color over the other.

I kid, I kid, but seriously, why is there a difference in strength/durability?

Count me in on this one. I should have a few guests and depending on what car I use, I may be able to car pool from columbus down.

Just got some new foam and weights just need to get some dots before I am ready to go.

Alright, I'm going to be plain and simple here. The banning of BB darts is stupid. I understand slingshot weights, as I've gotten a nice welt with one of those that lasted a while.

Dome darts are as safe, or safer, than the average slug when made correctly. A hole is burned into the foam, creating a well. You should then add some glue to the bottom, drop in your weight, then glue to the top of the hole, then create your dome. This not only covers the weight, but secures it into the foam. The only way I've ever seen a BB come out of a dart is after being fired from a BBBB into a brick wall at the 2009 Winter Columbus War.

As for felt dots, has it ever occurred that not everyone has a source? Not all people can order things willy nilly online, and my local arts stores don't supply felt dots. Another drawback of the slugs, they cannot be weighted correctly for some people. The closest washer I have found around my area was an sixteenth of an inch too wide on each side. The next closest was a sixteenth of an inch too narrow on each side. The first wouldn't fit into my barrels. The second fishtailed out of my AR removed raider. Neither gave me any reason to use slugs. A third reason, not everyone has the most powerful blasters. I myself prefer to run around with an Eliminator as my primary, and a Longshot as my secondary. I don't believe an eliminator has ever hurt anyone, and my Longshot barely hits 80' on a good day.

Slugs are not an equalizer, but cause decrease in range from almost any weapon. This may be fine with +bows, rainbows, and other high powered blasters, but it leaves those of us who prefer to be unique and use what you most likely consider "less common" blasters to be taken out first, unless they are extremely good at dodging high speed darts being launched from out of their blaster's range.

If I am in attendance, I plan to use my already made stock of darts. It's not an aging technology, it's just another way to do things.

Broken, do you think we could do a "get shot from 20' with your darts and most powerful blaster you plan on using" thing in special cases like this where slugs aren't an option for a person and the blasters being used are mostly underpowered? Otherwise anyone who can't order from McMaster or can't pay to have darts made for them is pretty much screwed....

You obviously have either lost or were never capable of grasping the true concept of nerfing. Which is to have fun, shooting foam from little kids toys, on a budget. To become a Nazi about such a simple and petty subject as the type of weight used in darts for over 15 years, is absurd. Nerf in my 3 years, has always been about bringing people together from all around to have a good day of foamtastic fun. Have BB weighted darts ever left welts? Of course. Have felt tipped darts ever left welts? YES! Its all the blaster, angle, and range. Any mix of variables that are thrown at you in a war.

I would love to come down and share the true spirit and fun of nerfing and see some fellow nerfers that I haven't seen in close to a year, which is why I am politely challenging this rule, to open your horizons to a wider variety and group of people.

Well the 'true spirit of nerfing" doesn't include inflicting pain on others either. It's a blanket ban on hot glue tips to ensure fun for everyone. The hosts have discussed it, and the decision has been made.

Thats just it, they don't cause anymore pain then felt tipped darts when made correctly. And since when have you all become such little girls? We used to judge how good of a day we had based on the number of welts we accumulated.

But your decision is your decision, and well have to respect that. We will be hosting our own war in the near future for men that can take a hit. You are all welcome to attend, just don't forget your purse at home.

You're the only person giving large amounts of pushback. I'm yet to see the polite angle you mentioned either.

Now, politely leave my thread. We have business to take care of here, which doesn't involve debating something which is already decided.

Please pardon one last off-topic post, but could I ask all you kind folk to move the discussion on slugs vs. domes (vs. anything else) over to this thread?

That way

1. It won't hijack this thread.

2. It will be joined by people who aren't interested in a war in Ohio.

3. I've set up a pretty open survey and am interested in what all y'all use.

==

Edit: As a gift to Brit, and to make the war go smoother, I'll be honoured to supply a few hundred slugs to the war hosts as a community dart bin.
