What about putting the McMaster felt heads on top of regular glue domes?

Tell me that you think putting a felt tip on that would be beneficial.

Oh, I didn't see that Zorn responded. Whoops.

That dome is massive.
I feel that a felt disc on top of a smaller dome would be fine.
My two cents.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

My reading of the rules is that as long as it is under 1.0g, and has a full padding, it's okay. One thing I would be concerned about is the "pointyness" of the dart - washer darts have the advantage distributing the impact across a flat surface.

I have opinions about the practicality of the type of dart construction you're suggesting, but that's a religious debate :)

Not trying to be a dick or find loopholes, but if I end up bringing some of my homemades here, including the mortar and homemade cobra, I will be firing oversized (3/4" to 3") stefans. Regardless of practicality, I'm asking if these would be fine, considering the bans on Titans, shit cannons, etc. It is a huge amount of air, after all. If they're only going to be allowed for demonstration, that's fine with me. I just want to ask ahead of time.

EDIT: I also want to try using homemade stefan bolos (two stefans with something tying them together), probably with 1" foam. I imagine demonstration would be needed. Just saying ahead of time.

My thoughts exactly. I generally make smaller, even somewhat flattened, domes, so complete covering wouldn't be difficult, I was just making this all as a possible suggestion to those who have a load of domes, but nothing to do with them in their current form.

I'm the only respectable person here. The rest of the NIC are pretty much just child molesters.

Homemade air guns are not permitted. If you'd like to demo it for me at Apoc and I have the time, I'll take a look. I'm not, however, willing to lift a ban and force myself to demo every kid's creation. Fuck that. No.

Understood. That certainly creates more problems than it solves. Some of the homemades will still be there (demo works as well as a video for the Homemade contest), but they'll stay demo pieces.
