I am terribly sorry to post my FOURTH FRIKEN NEW COMMENT IN TWO DAYS, but i have discovered that i have been going about this ALL WRONG. I would delete my other posts if I could and if someone knows how please tell me. I didn't think editing a previous post would do since previous visitors would most likely just overlook it. I guess if I am starting out I should ask others for suggestions. Now I am looking to mod every gun I buy because that will be half the fun. So what guns do you suggest i buy. I am definately looking to buy a crossbow. So what else do I need to get as far as pistols and other large guns go? Oh and if you know where to get these guns you suggest or have some you would sell me, I would love that too. Thank you for your help and I am completely sorry for not doing this sooner and just filling up the sight with crap. Please forgive me.

Gordon

I've been here since early this year and I STILL have a higher post average than you, don't sweat it too much.

Anyways, keep this in mind at all times. Almost every nerf gun you can buy can be modded. So really, it doesn't matter what guns you get, since all of them can be modded. However, for current guns to get, here's a basic list.

Big Salvo
Maxshot (if available)
Nitefinder
Tech Target
Airtech2000

If you have any more questions, and don't feel like posting, feel free to PM me. With limited amounts of questions.

Most of those guns seem very new. Are the new guns really better than the classics like the lock and load and stuff like that?

The Nitefinder is on par if not better than the LnL for most people I've heard from. The Crossbow is still great, but the maxshot gets the same if not better distances. It's only that the maxshot is much more prone to breakage and much harder to fix.

Ok I think I found a good combination. Crossbow, Nightfinder, Airtech 200. Does that sound good. It is really hard to find a Maxshot considering I searched and can't even find a picture of one. So I will just get a Crossbow instead... plus the Crossbow really looks like a loser rifle. And what about the split shots? I saw a lot of people in the videos with those.

Crossbows are probably harder to get than maxshots- that is if the Crossbows on e-bay sold out.

Splitfires? Good luck with those, but I'm sure you can find someone on the forums willing to sell you one.

gordon, what I found out about crossbows is that they are hard to modify. I am still finishing my touches my crossbow I got for christmas. I would suggest getting easier things to modify before moving on to a crossbow.

Fido, just completely remove the tubing leading from the plunger mechanism to the barrel. Then, add a brass barrel (or crayola barrel as I would do) directly to the plunger mechanism. Add bout a foot of 1/2" PVC over the brass (or crayola) barrel. Add some rubber bands and you are good to go. not that hard. Oh yeah you might would have to cut a hole for the new barrel. By the way you wouldn't consider selling yours to me would you?

Try and get your hands on a SS2. There's no such thing as a split shot.

Gordon, I might be willing to well you my crossbow, that is, if I can find it. I think my parents threw it away. Its hardly modded at all. I just stuck a new barrel out the front. I'll let you know if I find it.

I meant Split Fire. And I am not a big fan of the Secret Shots. And thanks, DUce. We'll see if we can cut out a deal.

No, then I would've said SSII. If you're not a fan of the SS2, you're retarted.

I have never actually used the ss2. I just think it looks retarded. There are better guns out there so I am not going to waste my time or money on one.
