hey now, I ain't throwin out insults here, just sayin how our rules are generally laid out here.
Haters gotta hate.
I am sorry if y'all don't agree with them, but you ain't gotta play here.
Correct, but just because I don't play there doesn't mean that your rules don't affect me. There is a consistent pattern to this sort of thing where
1. Person or people are hurt or otherwise adversely affected by the negligent misuse of X
2. Media throws a shitstorm about X, cleverly avoiding the fact that the negligent misuse was at fault rather than X itself
3. Governments and other organizations ban or harmfully regulate X.
My worry here is of course about toy guns, but X has historically included a wide variety of (often more important) things like free speech, guns, privacy, and drugs. It's already difficult to find places near where I live where we are permitted to play by the relevant authorities, and I don't want it to get worse here, there, or anywhere else.
I don't think someone's going to be severely injured by a singled titan hitting them in the torso, even if it uses some of the worst ammo the community has to offer. But you can't throw this kind of thing into an uncontrolled environment (and HvZ is uncontrolled even by nerf combat standards) and know that accidents won't happen. You might get lucky for a while--in fact, you probably will--but the growth of our hobby is continually increasing the likelihood of an accident that has a chilling effect on the hobby nationwide. We need to be more responsible to make sure this doesn't happen.
I'd love to have a flame war about this with you, but I already feel I've dragged this far off topic, and I really have no idea what sort of darts will work with your remedy metals kit. So I apologize for this diversion.
