In Topic: First Shot Vs. Maxshot

05 November 2006 - 03:05 AM

Cost is another factor, but if there's no money issue to consider then I would suggest you go with the Max Shot. Greater range, greater accuracy, and better overall utility than the First Shot. Like LotR said, the First Shot is a glorified sidearm, and not a particularly effective one at that.

In Topic: Bunkers...

05 November 2006 - 03:02 AM

Transportation would be a problem, not only on foot but in vehicles on the way to battle sites as well. A van or SUV might hold one of these bunkers, but I doubt a large amount of them could be moved in a single vehicle due to the dimensional constraints of automobile interiors. As for portable bunkers being practical, useful, or fun, that's for each group of Nerfers to decide. It sounds like an interesting idea, and I'm looking forward to any results the starter of this topic produces.

In Topic: Nerf Newb Questions

The first thing I want to tell you is that capitalization and punctuation are hallmarks of a successful and painless membership at Nerfhaven. I don't want you to get in trouble, so I thought I'd offer you that advice. The second thing I want to tell you (on topic now) is that Nerf guns take time to develop a skill with regarding aiming and engaging moving targets, even at minimal ranges. I assume you and your friends use stock (unmodified) guns in your basement wars, in which case the velocity of the projectiles is insufficient to guarantee an immediate strike on an opponent. I would imagine that most members would suggest you at least modify your NFs to increase range and velocity, since that modification is relatively simple and produces good results. If you have some aversion to modifying your weapons, learn to lead your targets and angle your gun appropriately to compensate for gravity. The more you fight, the better you'll get at determining or predicting where your friends will be and using that data to execute brilliant (head)shots. Good luck, and happy hunting.

In Topic: Nerf Nuclear Missile

Forum newbs observing other forum newbs chastising forum newbs. It doesn't get any better than this! Hehe. I've never heard of a 100'-tall Nerf Nuclear Missile, but it could exist. Hey TCIND, are you sure others have done this? I might decide to search on my own, but you could save me the trouble if you posted a link to the completion of a giant foam missile project. What I would love to see even more is a Titan that could fire the monstrous thing...Nerfing in cars would take on a whole new meaning when a single shot could knock you off a turnpike. Of course, you would have to mount the Titan Nuclear Delivery System (TNDS) on a mountaintop in order to fire it any direction but up. Of course, one could just install some fancy guidance systems on the giant missile and use it like a real ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile), but without killing anyone. That brings up another question: would a 100' foam missile be deadly if launched with any kind of force? I would tend to think so. I can see it now: AS-V.1000. *evil laugh*

In Topic: A Revolutionary Idea... As Long As It's Novel

18 October 2006 - 01:24 PM

I cannot imagine that a select-fire electronically cycled Nerf weapon with maximized rate of fire would be even remotely portable without serious funding dedicated to the miniaturization of key components. As others have already stated, one advantage Nerfing enjoys over other tactical engagement hobbies (hehe) is its simplicity and relatively low cost. Piney asked the best question: why would a ROF higher than that of the Magstrike or RF20 be necessary in a Nerf battle? The faster you empty your weapon, the sooner someone is going to rush your sorry ass and barrel-tap you (if you're lucky and your opponent is merciful).
