Well yesterday my Dad went to T.K.MAXX (a store that sells stuff for cheaper likie clothes and toys) since my Mum wanted something from there. I didn't go though.

When he got back he told me he saw a Nerf gun in there and said it was some sort of Tag gun thing. I immediately thought "Dart Tag!" He thought I wouldn't be interested but I was. From his description it sounded like a Crossfire, and today when my Dad went and got me it, it did turn out to be a Crossfire, but, not how I expected it to be.

I thought it was just going to be a pack of one gun, but, when my Dad got home and showed me it was a twin pack of Crossfires! So I got both colours. I had never seen anything like this before, all the ones I have seen on the net are all single pack ones where you only get one gun, but not this one. It was pretty good and suprising how it was in the UK too, where there is barely any Nerf guns, especially Dart Tag.

Anyway, they are great guns!

Now I ask has anyone ever seen this twin pack of Crossfires over in the US? It looks like something I haven't seen before in a Crossfire box, the only other thing I saw with Crossfires which is closest to this is the Dart Tag Firestrike/Crossfire set that's available from various places in the US.

Anyway, here are the pictures to prove that I am not lying or bulls#!tting.

There are now 3 of them left in the store, and they cost 12.99/$25.

Rather suprising for the UK, if there is a T.K.MAXX near you then you might want to check, although stocks per store may vary.

Cool find Wild boys! If I were to get these I'd leave them stock and just play 1 on 1 with my brother.

Thanks nerfer34! What you said is exactly what I am doing. Although since I have no brothers and sisters I'm just gonna go one on one with my mate when he gets back off vacation. :(

I have 4 of them or so now. I brass modded one and it gets a damn good range for the size of the thing. If you need a back up I would deffinately pick one of these up. I think mine was getting about 45ft modded.

Mine has a DTG spring in it and a CPVC Barrel, and gets ranges around 65'. I also chopped down the bulky ammo storage, to make a very small, sleek sidearm. I love it! One of my favorites.

Could 'TK Maxx' be like the American chain TJ Maxx which also sells cheap clothes and toys?

I was wondering the same thing, but my local TJ MAXX only seems to have "educational" toys, not things like Nerf guns :)

There are also TJ Maxx stores over here in the UK too, although the one that's in town near was pretty crap last time, I should go there again and see if there is anything, as its been awhile since I last went there.

Both T.K.Maxx and TJ Maxx are pretty much the same over here. Both selling a range of stuff like clothes (mostly), toys and other bits of houseware like pans .etc. for slightly cheaper prices.

My T.K.Maxx is also the only place that stocks Crossfires out of every other place in my area. Yes, the UK is pretty crap for Nerf guns and Super Soakers now, although it never used to be, I don't know what's happened. Even the biggest places like Toys'R'Us and others in my area are getting beaten by smaller stores that focus on toys less like T.K.Maxx and Tesco (supermarket) for Nerf and Super Soaker .etc. Its pretty crazy over here.

There was tesco right down the street from my hotel last week (went to london for three days and cumbria for four) It's awesome! (mostly cause the candy was pretty cheap)
Also, I got a razor zing shot at a random toy store is kesick (or something like that) but I didn't see any nerf brand guns while I was there.
