I know that you already put me down, but I won't be there for the whole time. Probably only until 2. I just wanted to ask, can anyone let me borrow a pump-action blaster to use for AT LEAST 2 rounds. I just built a SNAPbow, but I want to use something that is faster, preferably a Rainbow-pump or a PumpSNAP. Also, how many rounds do you think we will get done before 2? Thanks, and I am looking forward to meeting everyone and using Amoirs. ;)

There will probably be several rounds run before two. My goal is to keep rounds short and fast with limited downtime between them.

You'll have to ask Kane or Ryan at the war, or maybe someone else who's there, about borrowing a pump-action blaster, as I do not own a pump-action springer.

Fuck yeah!!

Anyways, that was a great war. I had a lot of fun meeting everyone yesterday.

+Everyone was really nice.
+I was allowed to use Ice nine's UMB because my snapbow was acting up.
+The darts were excellent.
+Ice nine also let me use a hopper with his UMB.
+I only got hit twice in the first 2 rounds.
+Everyone called their hits.
+Carpe was fun.
+An awesome variation of Deathmatch.
+I was told that nothing else happened after I left, even though I left early.
+No welts or bruises or general soreness.

-My snapbow was not easy for me too prime.
-I was super hungry.
-I came in the middle of the first round, but sat it out.
-Getting hit in the head is never fun, but I did not complain at the war.
-SO many darts to pick up afterwards.
I kept tripping on the slides.
-I tried to go underneath the play structure, but hit my head underneath instead. I still have a huge bump on my head.
-Parking WAS NOT free. It was $10.

Overall, this was a very awesome war. And Bags, you forgot one of your panthers. I think Ice nine has it. Thank you for having me!

I'd like to apologize for that. I argued with the lady at the gate for a few minutes about it. I was annoyed, too.

Next, thanks to everyone who came out. I was really glad the war site worked as well as it did; the facilities were quite nice, we were only hassled once at the beginning of the day for a short while, and the weather was beautiful. A big special thanks to Ryan and Kane for flying out, and braving the awfulness that Spirit Airlines brought to them.

  • Loved Ryan's dangus gun. Since I invented them, that's what they're called.
  • My +bow exploded, but that's cool. Back-ups to back-ups.
  • The first round of the day was the best round of Nerf I've ever participated in. The mixture of people, the gametype, and the playground as a central structure made every gun competitive and every ball-grabbing attempt a risky adventure.
  • Very few ruinations. I saw Kane almost die in a gopher hole, which was hilarious.
  • The putty slug darts worked excellently, and in their worst-case scenario: wet, impacting hard surfaces, and constantly getting run over on the ground.
  • Firestrikes at Walmart. Another plus to the AMIORS: the most painful shot I took in the day was not a UMB to the nose, but a stock Firestrike shooting an Elite dart into my face.
  • Borderscrts.
  • The "slayer" type game worked pretty well for a first attempt. Combining it with objective games and building a snazzy container for the counters with a big hittable button and a noise to accompany it would make for exciting new playstyles. I'm looking forward to exploring their potential.
  • I can't believe how great that playground was for staging at the center. Ridiculously perfect.

And here it looks like I'm about to shoot Kane in the face.

"Think of the most beautiful thing you can think of." That was hilarious.
I just noticed, my hopper doesn't have a clip... fail.
Ice, I have two questions:Do you have Bags' panther? And that hopper you let me use with the UMB, was it a regular 1/2 ballvalve or a wide-flow?
