Many of us do quite detailed tests with our Nerf blasters. Few of us publicly post the results. I'd like to change that as this test data could be very useful.

How does your blaster compare against someone else's? That question can be asked in many different contexts. You might want to beat the performance of someone else's gun. You might want to set that as the upper limit of performance. You might want to match it.

What works best? Often people don't know what works best until some tests are done. And there basically aren't any tests posted, so we don't know much.

I've collected two of the more important tests I've done and some links to other tests I've found here: http://btrettel.nerf...ums/forum6.html

My tests are more concerned with improving my mathematical models of Nerf guns, but someone still might find them to be useful.

I'd suggest that if you have any test data, post it here, post it at my Nerf Engineering forum, and/or post it somewhere else. Putting this data to use is a lot better than letting it collect dust in a notebook or in a spreadsheet.

Here's some good data at NH:

The ranges of many blasters with different darts
