I've been reading a lot of people talking about their Longshots costing a lot. I've heard people spending anywhere between 50-120 dollars (not including modification supplies). I'm guessing things very in price across the US, because I know things are more expensive in Cali. But I'm seeing them in local stores as cheap as 25-30 bucks. I'm just wondering how much a long shot is for you?

P.S. Sorry if I posted this in General Nerf as apposed to Off Topic, but I figured this had more to do with nerf than it didn't...

Anything above $30-35 is probably one of the modified ones that cross the eBay auction lists every now and then. The price in the U.S. is between $25-35 standard, depending on what store you buy one at.

Thats what I figured they would be, but I have cousins in the northern states complaining that they're in the fifties.

When speaking about a swallow, always make sure you know whether it is an African or European swallow. It is very important.

North Carolina is in no way a northern state, but thats beside the point.

Ive been to several Walmarts, Targets, and a few other stores in both MA and PA and have seen prices from $30 - $35 depending. Anything more than that is nonsense.

No offence FA24, but the Canadian dollar is worth less than the American dollar, right? So it obviouly cost more there... and if your talking US$ then its probably stock-movement or whatever its called...

Back on topic: It is crazy to spend anything more than $35 in the USA.

Actually since the federal rate cut of 1/2 a point our dollar is almost exactly the same as the Canadian Dollar.

Proof!

But yeah Longshots in Southern California range anywhere from $30-35.
