No offense taken by your statement :-)
Realistically, it would be easy for your friends to get involved with some AT2000's. AT2000's are very, very, very easy to mod, given the other alternatives. I don't know where there is a mod write-up, but I'm sure someone can find one for you.
Stefans (homemade ammo) is dirt cheap, my friend. $20 all together is probably all you need for weights, foam backer rod, and hot glue and the hot glue gun itself. It's easier to manage when you and your friends get involved at once.
Best mod for an AT2K at the moment is probably a PETG tube mod similar to the AT3K mod up at NerfHaven. You should check it out.

About the AT2k: I recommend you Brass it, or Copper mod it if you are looking for an easier mod. Copper is easier to find, so thats why I said it was easier. Also, check the TLM site for a complete copper mod.

The two best guns ever made are both at Toys R Us right now... waiting for you... you know you want them.
The AT3k is slightly more difficult than the AT2k to mod but well worth it for the results. The Max Shot mod is trivial if you have a little patience and take your time.
80' flat with bloody fast ROF or 110' flat with good ROF? It's a tough decision.

To make Stefans, you'll need foam backer rod. For micro darts (used in brass) you'll need 1/2" and for megas (used in PVC) you'll need 5/8". You also need fishing weights/BB's (size BB is nice for weights) and a hot glue with glue.
For PVC, you would use 1/2" diameter. Brass tubing 9/16"... I forget if it's ID or OD. I don't really suggest copper because its heavier and doesn't work as well. PVC costs about $1.20 for ten feet and brass costs like $2 for a foot. To achieve maximum power and range, I would suggest using brass.
Many of us have chosen to play Nerf over Paintball and Airsoft for many various reasons. For me, Nerf is cheaper than Paintball and I get to modify/make guns and play indoors.
By the way, what state do you live in?
Actually, an AT2K without barrel mod wouldn't reach 100'... It would go more like 50-70'... I would suggest modifying the barrels, but you should do some reading first. If you cut the stock barrels at the wrong place, you could screw up your gun and be forced to buy a new one.
For AT2K's, you also use hot glue to plug a release valve in the pump. I forget what this does, but by plugging it and putting brass on, you can easily achieve max distance, which for these guns, is about 90'+.
Another tip: You and some friends should form a Nerf Team. Goto Evil's site at http://evilangelnj.tripod.com for tips and strategies. And please, don't be another loser newbie who wants a Crossbow and then will sell it off later...

The longest range Nerf guns will get is about 150 feet flat, which is what brass Supermaxx 5000s will get. However, some homemade guns have been known to exceed 200 feet.
I know my site is down as of now, but tomorrow I suggest you read this. It's the advantages Nerf has over Airsoft, written by BoltSniper.
Nerf guns do hurt, but not any more than airsoft or paintball.

If you're anywhere in the SoCal area, come out for Armageddon on the 28th and you'll get the hang of this Nerf stuff right quick.
Aside from being a whole ton of fun, it's the quickest way to see a bunch of different guns/mods in action.

The average age group (mode) is probably mid to late teens.

Here's a tip:
Get your friend to look around England for Nerf guns in those barely-touched-and-visited toy stores or flea markets, etc. You never know what stuff you can find in foreign places or just places that Nerf isn't known much in.

Foam Backer Rod: Look in your local Home Depot. Ask an employee. I had a hell of a time finding it without him. If you're doing micros (there's only 2 sizes; mega and micro, micro's the smaller one), get 1/2 in.
Brass: Look at a local hobby shop (you know, the places with remote control stuff and models). You're gonna want to look for 9/16 in. brass for most of the mods.

Brass tubing is really hard to find here in NJ... You can also use PETG too...
