I would really like to say something about this topic without sounding like an admin or mod.
I like Nerfing. It is the first 'sport hobby' that I have gotten into that hasn't hit the media severely like paintball has. Thus, it is the first 'sport hobby' that I have ever played in that has no bad background to it. So, when someone is hit by a projectile and is killed, hell, maybe just wounded, and the cops show up to find this cannon with Nerf on it, that's when I MIGHT just not be able to play in this 'sport hobby' anymore.
If someone would die from that, there might not be anymore Nerf guns because Nerf by Hasbro would have a lawsuit against it.
Now those are all maybes, I know. But that doesn't mean it's impossilbe to happen. We chance it enough by playing with toys not intended for the uses we put them through. I have been in serious enough trouble with the law before over Potatoe guns. First time was a scare. Next time, my parents were pissed. The third time I met a judge. I push it with these modified Nerf guns. Mostly because they look very feel and people don't know what they hold inside. Sure, to the person holding the gun and being shot at, they know it's just foam, hot glue, and a lead weight that stings quite a bit. To someone not knowing what is on the inside of these plastic peices of engineering art, it could be something powerful enough to hurt them or even kill them with a correctly placed shot. I have had my fun with airsoft guns as well. I don't want to get started as to why I was made to sell my Famas. And right now, I am having enough trouble selling these guns and parts I don't use and limiting my arsenal.
