I know how you can make your own darts now, stefans, and they shoot better then stock darts. I did this all the time until I got tired of the effort in making them. So one day I discovered that the berries that grow on the branches of my tree are the perfect fit in cpvc. So I shot out the berry to test how far it would shoot. I shot as far as a dart, but was a little less accurate. I decided to just use these berries from now on, however, because I had about a thousand of them growing on my tree. Has anyone else ever discovered this? Peace out. Pull out our troops from Iraq.

I can honestly say I never realized the berries in your yard work as Nerf ammo.

I've experimented with other types of ammo before, but I usually stick to more practical/re-useable materials. I doubt most nerfers would appreciate mystery berry juice being splattered on them.

Search for some Stefan making guides. If you set up your work area right, you can make tons in no time at all. Once you get a good flow going, the effort won't seem as severe. You can save yourself the embarrassment of being caught in your berry picking outfit as well.

I'd have to agree, not to mention if u get a random large berry that gets jammed and explodes inside the barrel instead of firing. This will be a huge pain to clean not to mention it will undoubtably affect the performance of the gun. Just out of curiousity what kind of tree do these berries grow on?

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Yes. NerfMonkey and I tried this one time too. Ours don't fit perfectly into cpvc but they're sweet. The first time we tried it, NM had his cpvc modded Titan and he poured like 100 berries into his barrel and fired at me from fifty feet away. They spread like one foot apart and stung when they hit you. Berries are cool.

Actually, I've found a better source for ammo. I now use seeds that grow off bushes and sometimes bulbs of small flowers that sprout on those bushes. They do make your gun dirty after a while, but I clean it out with a pipe cleaner and it's fine. I found some sort of a seed that is green when it is growing, then turns a dark brown and falls off the branch. If the seed is too big for my barrel, I can reshape it and still use it. The seeds smell terrible though.

Just use like blackberries or something, they'll get all mushy and stuff but there's no arguing as to whether or not you got hit because they will leave a huge berry stain on the clothes.
