All they had in the clearance aisle were a few Fireflys, glow darts, tag darts, screaming darts, and some footballs. I now have to drive 45 minutes to an hour to purchase anything Nerf. We Have a K-mart which carries more of the Buzzbee guns than nerf, and a Shop Ko which only carries the ball cannon lanchers thingy ma-jig.
I'm wondering is this happening anywhere else.

I only ask because I'm thinking of trying these and it would suck if the balls got all covered with hairs after a while.

I would not worry too much about it, my local Target seems to go without a Nerf section at some point each year as well, they clearance out every thing and the display is used for some other item, but the Nerf stuff always comes back eventually.

I live on an island, approximately 50 miles over ocean from the nearest Wal*Mart, Home Depot, or Toys "R" Us.
We have absolutely NO Nerf blasters of any kind in the stores here on the island where I live. People here basically play with real firearms in the hills, huntin' and all that.
That in and of itself hasn't stopped me from amassing a fairly decent arsenal, consisting of blasters from the spring-powered days (Sharpshooter II, Expand-a-Blast, Triple Torch, Sawtooth), to SuperMaxx (SM1500, SM5000, SM350s), to AirTechs (AT2000s), to Lanard products, N-Strike and Dart Tag sets.
I've taken it to myself that if I'm going to pursue this hobby for my kids (yeah, and for myself ), I've got to use all the resources available...that means taking advantage of NerfHaven's "Trading" section, and making contact with some pretty cool people who can hook you up with what you need/ want.
Sure, you may not have the immediate gratification of grabbing the thing off the shelves, taking it home, and ripping into the box like you would a prom date, but heck, most of you could use a little discipline in your lives anyway. A little patience, crap like that. I'm STILL waiting for the Magstrike I ordered from Wal*Mart online.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me with my arsenal (especially one who sold me most of my stuff), and I hope to do business with y'alls soon.
But next week I take another business trip to Honolulu....four days....lots of time to scout every Wal*Mart for some "loot". If not, some of you can expect a call from me for some "supplies".
I think that half of the fun of attaining Nerf blasters is going to the store and seeing what's on the shelves, and what's not. Even if I have to jump on a plane to do so.
