Hey guys! I just made this account a couple of days ago. Just to let you know, I am only 13 years old but most people say I act older. Anyway I used to have little wars with my family but now I want to do the real thing. I live in MA and I'm just curious what wars I could participate in. Obviously nothing too far out of reach (I don't have a car). So anyway I would appreciate any giudance. Also I decided I wanted to do this because I love action but didnt think airsoft or paintball was as cool. I am already looking at a +bow from Ryan (the plus bow is so ****ing awesome! And is part of the reason I want to do this hobby) oh and one last thing, can anyone hook me up with someone to buy stefans from? Thanks guys!

Hey again guys, I decided I might use the grey foam from mcmaster Carr to make slugs or several reasons: first, I looked at the pink foam that someone is giving out for free but only if you make "safe" dart tips, aka silicone, second I know the pink foam is better because of the bright color and density but at least with the gray I can make washer pad tipped darts, and lastly the traditional 6 washer hot glue felt darts have better performance than the new silicone dome rubber tipped Stefans. Anyway Im just going to wait until a local war pops up. And also, can someone tell me what Stefan combination works best for the plusbow? I mean like what tip. Thanks again.

You can go to the nerf wars subforum and find one in your state. (or close to you) I just looked at it but it doesn't look like there are any in MA. I live in Arizona and there are never wars here. And a plusbow from ryan is a great homemade. Just make sure you get a hopper with it. Btw I am only 14. Also if you go to a war they probably will only allow slugs. You could make your own though.

There aren't a lot of local wars to Mass. But there is a small group from MA/CT trying to get some wars going. We are looking to get a winter war going, but there are no details at the moment. If there are any, I'll post details here. As for darts, you'll have to keep looking at trading threads to see if anyone sells any.

Yeah, the plusbow is a great homemade, but it is hard to make, especially if it is your first homemade. Get yourself a drillpress, a scrollsaw, and a beltsander if you want to make a homemade like that. I would recommend making a snapbow first, then a pumpsnap, and gradually work yourself up in the homemade category from there.
I also may be selling some slugs soon. Just poke around the trading section for now.
