by reading this post, you have been warned not to expect much in the way of nerf from korea.
1. 2X the cost on most products.
the cheapest strong arm costs 17000 won which is about 20 dollars. its in a market called dongdaemun which is half way across the city. also never buy at a place called e mart. they sell elite dart packs for 18000 won, jolts for 7000 won, triads for 9000 won and the modulus for 90000 won. thats 20, 9, 10 and 100 dollars respectively. all i found on markets so far are the ones mentioned before plus the mega magnus, cyclone shock,mega darts, firefly, fireshock, retaliator, rampage and the recon. not that big of a selection.... all old stuff....i want a big shock....
2. no power tools.
no power tools in a standard household. i dont have any, my friends dont have any, no one i know has ANY power tools. i have a bunch of multitools, superglue and sandpaper. thats it. all i have to work with....
3. no hardware stores.
the nearest hardware store is about 30 minutes by subway. they sell SHI*. any place which claims to be a 'hardware store' just sells locks and keys. they arent even good ones either. i can bust one open in about 3 minutes. THEY DONT SELL SPRINGS, SCREWS OR NUTS. none of the things a standard US store would carry.
I am having a really hard time nerfing in this country... somebody plz help.
