I really need help here. I can't find any good sites for purchasing blasters. I don't trust Ebay and Amazon is completely out of stock. Can anyone tell me where to buy old guns like the Powerclip, LNL, or anything like that...?

For all the old guns that are not in production anymore, the only places that you can really find them is eBay and the trading forums here. I am not sure why you don't trust ebay, I have never been ripped for anything I have bought, for all the hundreds of items I have bought. If you don't like ebay you probably won't be to secure enough to trade with people here, because many people who sell nerf guns on ebay, are here and at nerfhq.

Two things you could try too for cheap guns: garage sales and thrift stores, sure it might be hard to find a LnL or a powerclip but sometimes people have really good deals on just about any guns. Maybe under $10 for some. ^_^

Thrift stores are great for finding old guns. I got BnA at my local Goodwill for 99 cents.

On ebay just be smart. Ask the seller questions if needed. Check the sellers feedback and if there are some negative see what they are. Most people have around 100% positive. See if they sell alot of things. Read all of the desciption of the item and the fine print if there is any. Also make sure it shows a shipping price if it doesn't you should find out. Just keep checking nerf forums and you might find someone selling what you want.

Not necessarily. We have a Hannah Home/Salvation Army type thrift store in Pell City, Alabama, that is absolutely gold for finding all kinds of nerf guns, even sometimes the good stuff. I've found an LnL there, and that's where Karma found Alf (her BBB.) And it's cheap, too. All toys (I think...) for under a buck.

Thats a good article that can help you out.

You really should trust people on the net. The percentage of people who rip you off is well below 10%. Here on the forums if something happent and you got ripped off CX would take care of everything.

He's right. I havent done much business, but what I have purchased here has gone well (Tony is a good guy, and patient haha), and if it doesn't I'm 99% sure cx has the IP of everyone who posts here. That means you can most likely track them down and take legal action if you so desire on a sour deal.

As for eBay, you are highly unlikely to get scammed buying Nerf there. The scammers go for larger items like cars and laptops. I honestly doubt many people would bother scamming someone on a toy gun.

If you purchase an item from eBay, and you don't get the item or any responses after payment, eBay will give you your money back as an 'insurance' thing.
This happens because they simply charge the credit card of the user or contact the IP for personal information (address etc.) and then take legal action.
So, there's no need to worry about anything on eBay, if you don't get what you paid for and you feel you got ripped off because nothing has happened, you probably didn't contact eBay about it.

I know about the whole U$ to AU$ thing, but really, that was quite a lot. Was that including the shipping your dad paid for?
