Alright, I don't know what to do. I don't get any practice around here (thanx to the little fact that I'm the only person in my entire family tree that wants anything to do with nerf guns) and I don't know how to get practice xept by nerf wars. Does anyone have an alternate way so I can practice for nerf wars?

My keyboard is dusty. How did it get this dusty? Who knows. The spirit

I should probably dust my keyboard now.

Yep, Set up a practice course in your back yard. Have you seen "SWAT"? (It's a movie) There's a pratice course in the movie, where the guys run down the course shooting at these targets with rifles, drop the rifles, whipt out some pistols, do a wierd roll, and shoot the whole clip at a paper target. Plus, you can switch the course around.

There is a gun at my TRU that comes with a moving target. It is similar to a skeet shoot for shotguns. It has two modes of practice. The first it rolls a target, round disk made of plastic I believe, on the ground and the second it is suppose to launch it 20 some feet in the air. This might work better since your trying to hit moving targets. Since most of the time your targets wonít stand that still for you.

Do you war at all? Do you have friends who want to play? If not why even bother if youre never going to play anyways? You can always shoot at homemade targets.

Get a couple extra guns, get at least two other people together, and have a mini-war. You can't really drill to prepare for a nerf war. The best thing to do is nerf as often as possible.

Langly is right, but since nobody seems to like to Nerf in my area, I have alot of time to think up little things.


One I have made up and tested is the fan-target. You just need to get a large loose shirt and a fan. First you need to set the fan up, then strech the shirt over the fan and secure it, then turn the fan on high.

Practice with other people, that is the most effective way. Teaches you how to work like a team and cover areas efficiently. Also makes you learn not to be the idiots that runs up to the enemy, shoots randomly, and screams and run. Personally, if you are going to practice alone, try with moving targets, that skill always comes in handy.

He has already said more than once that he is looking for a way to practice on his own because there arent other people to practice with. Now if you want to suggest a way to make moving targets, that would be helpful.


That t-shirt thing is cool. Great way to represent the real size of what you will be shooting at. I used to hang up garment bags to use for target practice. They had little targets drawn on them as my goal, but if I missed the target I could still tell if it would have been a point on the other person in a war.

My family has a crow problem in my backyard. The crows are digging up the back yard, so my mom pays me to shoot them. I usually miss, but when I hit them, they usually stay away for quite a while.

Shooting cats = Not cool at all.

I'm sorry, but that's probably the crappiest thing I've read all day. Nerf could seriously hurt a cat, with it's small frame. Nerf shouldn't be shot at any pets, because an injury will occur. Unless you want your chosen target to hate you for the rest of it's days (they're good at holding grudges), don't shoot your cats/dogs/flyingsheep/small rodents/ferrets/lizards/octopie/or any other house-hold animal.

I couldn't let that go.

Actually surprisingly enough rabbits are really really musculer with all that hopping they do... Cats arent so strong.. and i love cats... i have 4 and if i shot one they would gouge my eyes out. But during winter i run around my house and shoot pictures in glass frames and i do crazy rolls and crap.

i have to ask, Is it really that hard to get other people around you to nerf?
If your friends wont nerf with you, than i would say that you're in trouble.

Try gettin 2 unmodded NFs and then commence firing on a friend. unless they are a complete wuss, they will want to grab one of them and return fire. after you make an afternoon of it. you can take it to the Next Level ! booyahkashaa!

I've got a squirrel problem in my area. They keep eating the birdseed from my feeders. They are really small and hard to hit so when I finally get a war going on I should be well prepared. Iíve got crows as well but they are more skittish than the squirrels.
