In Topic: Holsters Or Straps?

I suppose I should have voted 'neither' because I haven't made them yet, but I voted 'both.' I'm a little bit new to serious Nerfing, but when I get around to it, I intend to make a holster for my Nite Finder and a strap for my Double Shot.

In one year I'm getting my Dad's 1968 Ford Mustang GT. Really the only reason why I'm getting it is so my Dad can move on to a new project. Anyway it has a 8 cylinder 302 small block with a 4 barrel carb dual exhaust. It's aqua metallic with black interior. Oh yeah it's friggin' awesome!

Sounds like it's a beautiful car... but I imagine insurance is going to be murder on it! Probably a pretty good trade-off though...

I like the color scheme. One question: what is that fabric on the top of the gun? It looks like it could be velcro, but I'm not totally sure...

Honestly, do you have anything against him because he has an older bimmer that he fixed up ?

I don't think anybody can think of anything wrong with restoring an older car so that it runs as good as new. I'd like to do the same to my car, and though I'm people would think that's a whole lot crazier than fixing a BMW.

About the flat tip dart/pain theory, think of it like this, the dome tipped darts are like doing a cannon ball in the water, it doesn't hurt to jump in, but a flat tipped dart is like a belly flop, it hurts like a mother, so, I think flat tips would hurt more, but again, that's just my theory.

if you get a pin and somehow balance it upright on your skin with 100G weight on it it would probably hurt a bit but if you get a coin with a 100g weight on it it would not be painful unless you are really sensitive. it makes no sense to me now that i think about it but hopefully it makes sense to other people. and i do notice that this is going a little off topic, sorry

Doing a cannonball hurts less than a belly flop because a more aerodynamic shape will cut through the water easier, rather than just slapping against it.
As for the pin versus coin thing, it's all about weight distribution. I don't think this can really be applied to nerf darts though, because the surface area of a domed tip isn't all that much less than a flat tipped dart. If anything, the domed tip dart will hurt more because it's more aerodynamic and will be moving at a higher rate of speed than a flat dart would.
