To start this off I'm not sure if this really belongs here or in Off Topic, I haven't really been on the forums for around 4 years or so so I apologize if this in the wrong area.
I used to be a lurker on the forums but a largely active member in Nerf, modding guns, making homemades and having neighborhood wars with kids my age and even ones half my age. I started to grow apart from it after some time and eventually never really participated in it or any of the forums. I became active in other hobbies such as track & field, cross country running, cross country skiing and video games. This all lasted up until graduating from high school and starting college, I can't really participate in these sports anymore unless I want to dedicate an extreme chunk of my life to collegiate sports. And without a legitimate hobby I've felt like something is missing in my life all I do now is play video games and go to classes. I'd really like to get back into Nerf once again just to have something to do!
So on to the real point of this topic, I'm very curious of the current state of Nerf. To give you a gauge of when I left it was around the time that someone/some people (Ryan Mcnumbers I think) started making +bows with actual PVC arms instead of springs, and people were looking into drilling holes into the back of stefans to make them more front heavy and fly faster. What I'd like to know is how has Nerf changed since I left? Longshots, XBows, +Bows, and Quadshots were generally accepted as great primaries, have new guns gained dominance or has it remained relatively the same? What impact has 3D printers had on Nerf homemades ad well as modifications? Who currently are really great forerunners in the advancement of Nerf? Has Nerf started to make more guns with regular plungers instead of their horrible reverse plungers? How has the community changed over the years, is NerfHaven still the largest forum, are people leaving Nerf for other interests etc...
I'm sorry if all of this seems a bit much I'm just really curious at what all has happened since I was gone.
