This post is mainly to give ideas for guns we wan't next time and what we think Nerf will come out with next. I know the '06 blasters just came out, but that isn't a reason not to brainstorm what is next! Please give explanations of a gun you would like to see come out or what you think they will come out with.

-I will start it off...

I think they should make a clip fed gun, which is small and like a pistol-like the size of the gun on the front of the longshot. It should be like that gun but with a clip. It would be so easy to shoot! Also I think they will come out with a new N-strike pistol. I also think it will have a clip... I have noticed Nerf is starting to do everything with clips, it is their destiny...

Now, Beginnnnnnnn.....

Too soon, I still need to get the new guns and mod them.

They did one gun with a clip... and so far, it sucks.
I would like to see something resembling a gun from the sm or at series, and auto rotating, mid range pump gun.

They did three with clips, as near as I can tell, z80. There was the Powerclip, the Magstrike, and the Longshot. I don't know which one you were referring to as sucking, but to cover them all, I wouldn't know about the PC or MS as I have never used them. The LS doesn't "suck," per se, so much as "not perform as well as it should." We all know most of the members on this site can fix that.

I mean an actual clip, that pushes darts up, rather than them being in a static position in the clip. IF the powerclip counts, then the maverick does, and that is a "clip" pistol. :) I think it would be cool, but signifigantly underpowered.

I really wish Nerf would just make a 50 foot ranged gun. If only they make a huge cylinder to make the gun powerful! If they did this, Nerf would no longer be a pathetic toy, it would be a lifestyle!!! Kidding about the lifestyle.

Nerf is supposed to be a children's toy. Notice the boxes where all the pictures are of little kids holding the gun(s)? The point is, older kids tend to move towards airsoft/paintball. I'd think Nerf would have a hard time trying to take a market share from airsoft and paintball.

Here is my gun Idea... Notice it is like the front of the longshot, but clip fed!

Here is the inner part... It is complicated so bare with me.

Ompa, I am just talking theoretically... no need to shut it down. Trust me, I have heard many times in my day that they just make them for kids. I think they would make more business because nerf wouldn't be looked like a totally kiddish toy, but for 12 and 13 year olds too. That is what they are doing with the longshot and magstrike... making their guns more grown up.

I think it would be sweet if they made a clip-fed shotgun.

But I am incliend to agree with ompa on this one: one of the great fetures of a nerf gun is that it DOESNT look like a real gun. Yesterday I was at NOSPAM and this security guard kept going by us and then he would just drive off. Now I am not sure why but my guess is that he was getting reports of "...a bunch of teenagers playing with guns..." so he would go up to where we were playing and take one look at the red green and yellow guns, and the fact that we were not wearing paintball maskes or camo and then drive off. Of course every time he got a report in he would have to drive up and check 'cuz otherwise he might get complaints or something.
