Its that time of year where we at S.C.U.N. hold our annual NIB/Stock/"Low-Tech on-the-spot Modding" Event. Once more we shall gather at our Southernmost Reliable Location in Corona to goof around with barely modded blasters and shoot each other with stock ammo and enjoy pizza for a fair amount of hours. Its fun for the whole family.

So, yes, this is a "Stock Event" similar to a N.I.B. war but not quite as strictly aimed at using a brand new blaster, as it is going back to a time where you couldn't "science" a nerf gun beyond "slap a crayola marker on it"

Like every Stock War We've done, there will be about a half hour of “Field Modding Time” using the most “basic” of nerf modding supplies:

  • Hand tools like Screwdrivers, small hacksaws, pliers, wire cutters, x-acto knives or boxcutters, leatherman tool, hand drills, etc.
  • Electrical Tape/Duct Tape etc
  • Most Adhesives (includes Epoxy Putty, Super Glue, Plumber's Goop)
  • There is an outlet and I'll bring an extension cord so you can use Hot Glue if you wish.
  • Rubber Bands/Mini bungee
  • Crayola Barrels or similar objects like those Jägermeister tubes as barrel material.
  • a 2k Pump tube is an acceptable way to mod something for Arrows.
  • Electronic mods to flywheel guns are allowed, this ranges from basic higher voltage batteries all the way to full motor replacement.

NO PVC or other Pipe/Tubing WILL BE ALLOWED.

Naturally, there will still be some safety bans, IE no making titans shoot micros. Pistol splats and all variants are not allowed, because they perform on par with modded guns bone stock. But pretty much anything else is fair game. Bring as many or as few blasters as you'd like, by leaving the ammo stock, we should have a fairly level playing field whatever you bring. Also you're allowed to bring any blasters that are already modded to these specifications, be it because you did it for one of the previous stock wars, or felt like modding in advance.

We'll start this earlier than usual, so that modding time doesn't cut too much into our playing time, so try to show up by 9:30 AM

The Date is SET as JANUARY 4TH

Location:
Horsethief Canyon Park
Shotgun Trail Rd.
Corona, CA 92883

The Park has Restrooms. Nearby there is a shopping center with a Pizza Hut, A Subway and a grocery store. We usually just make a group pizza order together and send a small detachment to pick things up. so bring cash for Pizza, or be ready to take care of getting other food for yoursef.

I may have something on the 28th, but I certainly have stuff on the 4th. I'll do what I can to make it out there, though.

What about flywheels? How is overvolting perceived as far as this level of modding goes?

Along with this question, would motor swapping be allowed for electric blasters? You mentioned an outlet, would we be able to use a soldering iron? For the sake of a one war motor swap, I could make due without an iron and just wrap and e-tape my connections.

Just to clarify, I will not be attending this war; but the idea intrigues me. I really like the concept of 'whatever you can do in 30minutes is war legal(mostly)' and just want to get some answers to a few of my questions.

Additionally if anybody from Ohio, or even the midwest, is roadtripping down to Cali for this I'd love it hitch a ride. Obviously i'll pay my fare share for gas, even take a turn at the wheel if you trust me.

The Last couple of these we let Axelion use his modded Barricade which has a voltage mod, and I'm sure that Other electronic minor things (like even replacing motors) would be OK too, I just copy-pasted this from an old post I've never gotten around to updating it to the common presence of Flywheel blasters.

Because we don't have much time before either date comes up, the few Date Specific votes I've seen here and on the FB poll we put out suggest that we should do this on the 28th. So, There ya go.

See you dorks in a week.

Bump, I've been getting a lot of cancellations on the Facebook Discussion for this and we were planing a Fallback second event on the 4th anyway. So I'm just shuffling the date and renaming this post since its a lot less redundant than making a second thread. Anyone who still is able to come out here on the 28th is welcome. We'll be there and nerfing, but I have a feeling that primarily the 4th is going to have a larger turnout.
