In Topic: Nerf Sues Buzz Bee And Lanard!

This is probably a reason why Buzz Bee/Air Blasters was sued. Look familiar?
EDIT: I mean that it looks almost identical to the crossfire.

I enjoy this, but some added simplicity would be nice. Maybe drilling the AR out instead of dremeling it, because I know almost everyone either has a drill, or has a parent that has a drill. Also, I don't think the zipties are necessary.
Just my 2 cents.

Very nice. Though it seems to me like it's just a furyfire with less shots, it is probably a cheaper alternative. If you don't mind me asking, how much did this cost altogether? Not counting the price of the maverick itself, of course.

Bring on the speculation. I do agree with the idea that the Big Blast and Stampede will be 2 different guns, although 9/9/10 release date on Amazon completely destroys all those ideas. 18 dart clips, or 50 dart double mags? It'll probably have a slight resemblance to the gun from the game, but not much. I guess we'll just have to wait another 4 or 5 months and see what NERF pulls next. But if this thing is ANOTHER godawful reverse plunger system, and I hope it's not, I am gonna be megapissed.
Also, the HvZ thred is very interesting, though it's possibly shopped/a modded clip.

I just got some slingshot ammo and made some darts with it and went shooting. I was using a singled RFDG with a 14" cpvc barrel. It's quite a powerful gun. I was shooting at a target from 45'.

-Darts went much farther and hit with much more force.
-Darts were sometimes deadly accurate, other times they weren't
-Darts sometimes shot very far, others didn't
-Some of the darts would go completely off of my aim. They would curve in flight and hit things that were 10' away from the target zone, when they had a straight flight path in the first half of the flight.
-Some darts would shoot low, others high.

I checked the head/ weight "centeredness" before each shot, and the crazy performance seemed to not be based on the smoothness of the head or the centeredness of the weight. Some "perfect" darts would shoot terribly and some crappy darts would shoot well.

Is there any explanation for this?

On a side note, is there any way to make foam thicker? I have some red foam and it is slightly too loose in stuff and I want to make it thicker.

First, I have no idea why some darts went further than others. I guess the Stefan Gods just like messing with you.

For making foam thicker, you may want to try either keeping the blanks in the dryer longer. I normally put them in for about 12 minutes on high, and it works good in my NF. You can also try just getting new foam. I use Frost King, but only because that's all I could find. You could try ordering foam from SwiftNerf, because from what I've heard his foam is fairly tight in CPVC.
Hope that helps, because I'm still fairly new to the Haven.
