Hello everyone. As you may or may not remember, I'm TCIND, the obscure member of the forums that posted a few badly photoshop'ed pictures and never really did anything with them.

Well, I've been gone for quite a while and I thought I'd show you guys what I've done.

This is my dedicated Nerf table in the basement for the month that I'm back for the holidays. It's very nice and comfy, is well lit, and near the computer so I can listen to music while modding.

This is the wall. I just really like the wall. Adds some class.

Oh hohoho! My brand new pride and joy, the Peacemaker, my heavily modified and trimmed Longshot. Also, not in the shot, the magazines have been doubled up end-to-end.

Foregrip forward.

Foregrip back.

Niiiiiice!
Also know that this is the first attempt, and is very rough. I may do it again, and I will DEFINITELY smooth/sand/shape and maybe paint it too.

An example of a fully modified Nitefinder. It has a barrel replacement, added O-ring, and three additional ammo holders.

Ammo!

Ammo!

This is the modified barrel to my Maverick. I think I did a really nice job. The air restrictors were removed, and straws were placed in. They're almost invisible. Maybe I'll show more on that, because it came out nice.

These are the Nerf Club's Nerf knives.

I haven't even talked about the Nerf Club, have I? At my college, Edinboro, my friends and I have formed a Nerf Club. It started small with only five or six people, but our membership is now near 30, and growing. I am the club Quartermaster, and have raised over $80 in Nerf Modifications (Which went towards 200 feet of Forsaken Angels red FBR). I've probably modified 35+ guns by now and am getting quite adept at it.

So yeah, things are going pretty swell right now. Business is booming, nerfers are nerfing, and I'm really quite happy with the Longshot (which I only completed yesterday).

I wanted to show you guys that I'm still alive, and doing good. Hope to see more of you in the coming weeks.

Cool stuff, it's great when nerf takes off in college. I'm glad to see that you've got a group going.

On another note, those mods look sweet, I especially like the Longshot, the cut down version of that thing looks every bit as cool.

They aren't weapons. Don't call them weapons. They're only weapons if you make them so.

Thats the first wood foregrip for a longshot that I've seen. Looks very cool. Also looks like your coming back with a bang!

Yeah, I'm a big fan of finished wood. Once I re-measure and cut out the pieces and get them to fit nice and tight (and mabye make blueprints so I can make more easily), I'll either stain or paint it. It'll look real nice either way.

Although it's hard to see, the top of the wood runs right flush along that little elevated part where the word "Longshot" is printed on the gun. This gives it an extra rail of stability for it's movement.


And in a completely unrelated note, I JUST found the piece of Brass that I had lost! I'm going to try to make my first Brass-barreled gun very soon now...

Which gun might that be?

Also, excellent work on the LS, although the gun looks kind of strange without the carry rail. Look at the LS closely and honestly tell me it doesn't look like this. (Minus the chainsaw bayonet from hell...)

I cut off the carry rail because I really had no use for it, and it allowed easier access to the inner mechanisms. This is a decision I now regret, as other members of the Nerf Club have turned the useless LS Scope into a very useful tactical flashlight. We often play indoors, in low to no light conditions (on purpose... it's for a game, it's cool), and it's quite useful when trying to clear a otherwise very dangerous room.

Mabye I'll buy another Longshot, and keep the rail on...

PS: I already brassed a Nitefinder. It's friggin NICE! I'll upload pictures tomorrow. I'm tired. Bedtime!
