I'm down of course, and I'll be dragging my box full of crap left over from my sales thread to try and sell off.
Count on me bringing a friend as well.

I would LOVE to go, but sadly I live around the branson area and it's just too long of a drive and too short of notice :(

I'll do my best to come if there is a SLANE 3

Just requested off work, if I cannot get off I wont be able to go, so hopefully that isn't the case. What do you guys put the reason for. Requesting off? Not sure if I would be granted the dY off for writing "Nerf War".

Regarding trades, I'm looking to buy enough brass for an angel breech, so if anyone has extra brass please lug it with you and I may buy it.

Today I found 3 nitefinders and a big blast at the local resale shop. They were all hiding in the back of other shelves and not in the box of dart guns where they should have been. Really glad I took the extra time to search the shelves or I would have left with nothing. Id still really like to get a longshot before the war.

I apologize for the double post.

I had a blast today, and I'm glad the war ran successfully and actually happened this year.

The Not-So-Awful Awfuls round was definitely my favorite. I got pummeled using my FastBlast, so I guess that means I win? Mindlord had some crazy three round burst rocket launcher he used, and it was probably the worst blaster I've ever seen. I also got to fire off my Original Nerf Slingshot!!!!!11!1

I had the most fun in the first three rounds; Deathmatch, Pistols, and Awfuls. After those everything started slowing down, and I absolutely sucked at CTF. I'm glad everyone liked my Titre, even though it didn't perform to my expectations in battle.

I was surprised how little Slugs hurt. There's so much talk about safe dart methods, but there was only one or two instances where people got hit too hard today. I got shot maybe ten times and felt nothing. Shot a couple up close with my 4B and they barely felt it.

Highlights:
(+)The war actually happening, and perfect weather.
(+)Getting to fire off an Ultimator, the kick was insane.
(+)Watching azrael do more damage with an RSCB than anyone using a hopper.
(+)Everything about Awfuls, particularly Matt's seven swords. Wasn't big on the use of Roughcuts and Magstrikes.
(++)Rushing while duel wielding some RapidFire 20's.
(-)Losing our flag after my RF 20's ran out of ammo.
(+)Sold some stuff, and got a good deal on a Titan.

Things to work on:
-Keeping rounds more organized; it was tough figuring out who was tagged or eliminated.
-Keeping rounds moving. We only got 5 or 6 rounds done in three hours due to over dickwaving of blasters (I was a big contributor to this too, not calling anyone out).
-A bit more regulation on blasters. Magstrikes were way too good for Awfuls.

It was great to meet all of you, and keep in touch while I look into a follow up war.

Here's a pick of our combined hoard of blasters:

In agreement with Shanaynay, I had an an awesome time at SLANE 2 today, I definitely hope to see more Missouri wars on the forums and will look out for them. I think that the rounds could have been a bit more organized do to everyone just talking for 30 minutes in between rounds and also have a little more diversity of game types, but I still had a ton of fun and thank the coordinators for the pretty great war.

Thanks ShaNayNay. I had a TON of fun, and hearing that after my first war makes it even better. I got a couple good blasters to mod (which I spent the rest of the day modding). I cant't wait for some more foam flailing fun.
