Do You Remember?
Posted 27 July 2006 - 04:27 AM
Thus I lay down the question: What was your first Nerf Gun, or what gun inspired you to get into Nerfing?
As a side note, this will date a lot of us.
I remember being jealous of a cousins Ghostbusters nerf gun. The following Christmas my brother and I got a Bow and Arrow to share. After that obviously wasn't working I got a Crossbow, which was my pride and joy for many years, but has since died.
Oompa: FECES!? Who in their right mind would try that shit!?

My first Nerf gun was actually not made by Nerf, but by Buzz Bee. I was at the Rocky Horror Picture Show Convention in NYC in 2004 when some of my friends came into the convention hall shooting each other with guns they bought at the TRU down the street. I had seen some Nerf guns in the past, but never really had an interest in them until this day. After the convention was over. I went home and bought a Tek Ten.
If you want to go for my first official Nerf gun, it would have to be the RF20. I was completely amazed by a gun that could launch so many projectiles so fast, and yet was made for kids.
That was nearly two years ago. Since then, I think I have become a little touched in the head. In such a short span of time, I have amassed a collection of well over 120 different guns, including some very hard to find pieces, but I still fall back on my RF20 when I want to have some fun.

The first gun I ever owned myself was a Maverick. I remember walking through Target and seeing all the stuff they had on display, and then remembering the fun I had in MI. So, I bought a Maverick and went online (because you can find almost anything online), and figured how to get rid of the air restrictors and barrel pegs (after finding out what they were... haha), and did it.
Of course, I have since cycled through 6 Mavericks... all failed mods. Personally, I just don't think the Maverick can be made a better gun (of course, the Nite-Mav and cpt. slug's clip mod say otherwise). Since that first Maverick I have accumulated and modified quite a few guns as well as even make three homemades, and one more I'm going to finish today.
...and ideas are bulletproof. "

I have 1/2" ID (11/4" OD) pipe insulation sheathed over mine. It's like a condom; be safe.

Do you mean with an integration or what? Because size doesn't have anything to do with performance...-NerfMonkey

The following year I got a RZB Eagle eye and sawtooth. Unfortunately all these guns were sold of in a garage sale that I didnt know was going on as I was at camp. Then 4 years later I got into nerfing and went lookiing for them but couldnt find them. I am still missing that eagle eye and sawtooth. Although I must admit I hated the sawtooth even as a kid.
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,

No, that's not a 'Hall-of-Shame' but rather a list of my first trio of blasters, all recieved within a year of each other. The entire threesum is still in my possession as of today, collecting dust because they're either broken or just unfortunately unsatisfactory.

Anyway, the guns that got me into competitive NERF was my old school NF I bought of a fellow clansman, then re-modded the hell out of. Good times, good times...

My first gun was a Maverick, my friend had a Buzz Bee gun and showed me his, so I went out to get one.
In less than a year I made 2 homemade nerf guns, 2 mods, attempted to make stefans, attempted to make the F.A.R. (which I gave up and started to make my own version, which was never completed). I have 9 nerf guns (excluding homemades).
