Hey, I found this forum when I was browsing. My true love is paintball but I want something to play in the house. What is a good nerf gun under 30 bucks? How can I modify it so I can actually feel it? Any other tips for someone like me?

You really want pain? Go get and N-Strike a toys r us for 35, sell the scout(pistol) and hornet(6 shot gun). Put on a new barrel and have fun giving yourself welts.

Probably the best thing to do at this point is read as much as possible: the site, the forums, head over to NHQ and read their stuff, look into the links on both sites and look at stuff, head to www.NerfCenter.com for reviews of most of the modern guns, and so on. Once you read the forums a few days and research stuff you wanna know about, a lot of it will come to pretty easily. The Nite Finder is an excellent cheap pistol still in many stores that would be great for getting some experience modifying; and since their cheap, you can afford to buy a few in case of screw ups or you want to experiment.

The Night Finder and the N-Strike set are the only decent guns readily available in stores right now, but there's lots of good stuff on ebay and here in the trading forums. Pick something you like in the mods section and find one for sale used. Any gun with a modded flat range of 90'+ will definitely sting on bare skin and bruise or welt at close range. You'll need to make homemade (stefan) darts for use with most of these mods - make sure you do so because it will significantly increase your range and accuracy.

My true love is Nerf but I occasionally talk to PBers. Welcome to NH.

Hehehe brings back this one thread I remember. :P :P


If you want a nice modded Night Finder I will sell you mine. I have a brass (very good barrel for most nerf guns) barrel on it and they get 65'+, inside they are devasting and will leave welts, REALLY will leave welts. If you are interested just pm me or you can post on this thread. ;)

I don't think that nerf has to be proven by how much it hurts. For indoor fights, you can easily mod a gun so that it doesnít hurt, but still travels an impressive distance.

As suggested above, a Nitefinder is a great starter gun (as far as today goes), but what I'd recommend is not modding it to its max power. You can decide what type of ranges and power you want by the way you modify your air restrictor.

Another way is to modify solely internally, and keep the barrel as it is, because adding on 4 inches of brass will add to the power.

However, if youíre actually looking to welt one another, (Iím sure as a PBer you get that enough) you can do what you want.

I don't really fell the pain as much as I used to in paintball, most of the time the onky way I know I'm out is by looking at the splatter, that's why I want to mod the nerf so I can feel it even if it doesnt leave a mark. I think I'm going to get an N-Strike.

Oh...you'll definately feel it.

Don't want marks...if you choose to mod them to what we have decided as their 'best mods', then you should probably wear something more than a think t-shirt. This will be helpful if you get hit anywhere less than 10-15 feet away.

Good luck. Oh...and...the Titan WILL leave marks...

Most people dont feel the balls hit in paintball because your adreline is pumping. if it isnt, then your a really passive guy ;) . Same thing goes for nerf, its a rush, so welts or not, mod the gun to the max. Just wear eye protection, and close your mouth. My brother and I had a nasty incedent with metal tipped darts and a powerclip a few years back. We never found the second half of his tooth...Anyways, yuoll find nerf to be fun, but a lot of the guns cant be used in the house. I have several holes in the hallway wall, along with shattered pciture frames. Use lower powered guns indoors.

I've lost a tooth because of nerf before as well. The dart flew and suddenly there was a bunch of powder in my mouth. It broke to the vein.

Maybe, with the fast increase in ranges and power, people should start considering using full paint ball face masks. I know some people chose nerf becuase it didn't require one of these, but if you know what guns your up against, you should probably just give in and wear a mask.

Screw paintball masks, that's what they made shooting and hardware glasses for. As far as darts hitting my mouth, keeping one's mouth shut isn't difficult at all: its called the "nose." It allows you to breath with you mouth shut; who'da thunk?

I knew you wouldn't take to it, but either way.

What? Running around like a dick, physical exertion, and your going to be able to get enough air in through your nose. :P I don't think so.

If any of you guys do get a mask, get a Pro/Flex. It's 50 bucks but worth every penny.

I mean, if there aren't people within shooting distance, yeah, I breathe through my mouth, but otherwise, I take the heat and use my nose, unless I'm speaking or something. I never keep my mouth open when I'm actually engaged.

Eh, I've got my v-force morph. God I love that thing, never fogs on me.

Getting hit in the mouth or nose by a modified nerf gun can't be fun. I can only imagine what a Titan or sm5k would do at close ranges to a nose. B)

I've been shot in the nose with a brassed Crossbow about 45 ft. away, almost broke my nose. There was blood but I lived. After that the LRC kept telling me to wear a paintball mask. I said screw it's just a flesh wound!

That's a brassed Crossbow. I have one, and I also have a Titan and an sm5k. The Titan and sm5k, velocity-wise, put the Crossbow to shame. They would do ALOT m ore damage than the Crossbow would. If the Crossbow broke your nose, a Titan or sm5k would break it. And that would be kinda hard to explain to the doctor without them laughing.

Doctor: "How'd you break your nose?"
BK: "Uh, I got hit by a nerf gun"
Doctor: (Trying to suppress a giggle)
