the semi auto pistol is p cool it's my cousins favorite when we have nerf wars (he's six by the way so yeah)
[QUOTE=Joyful Mystery;29514553]Plus, BBs hurt when you get shot with them, Nerf darts you don't. Unless you get hit in the eye. But, then you could simply have the zombie player wear some goggles for safety.[/QUOTE] That and, hell, Nerf even makes goggles just for that purpose. And the darts to hurt a bit at point blank range, but not worse than getting hit with a football.
Moved into a two story apartment a couple months ago. Been doing SWAT style breaching scenarios and zombie games with all my guns. Shit is so cash with 6+ players. We've even made a few cardboard riot shields and shit.
Yeah, my administrators at my High School are really being difficult. I haven't actually met them since they've been "stuck at a meeting" the day I was suppose to meet the principal and then when we had another appointment in the morning but he came late and had like 5 minutes before I had to go to class. They are avoiding me real bad because I'm really pushing them and I don't think they've encountered anyone else like our group before that are really well researched and well motivated. .

You're trying to get them to allow you to play HvZ in [b]high school[/b]? Stupid idea. It's designed for college campuses.

I would have liked to play NERF while I was in High School.
It's disruptive in a high school environment. It doesn't matter how safe nerf guns are, it won't be allowed.
[QUOTE=MaverickIB;29533578]It's disruptive in a high school environment. It doesn't matter how safe nerf guns are, it won't be allowed.[/QUOTE] Amen, college isn't as regimented and it's a much more relaxed schedule... and it's a lot more outdoors than high school. Looking forward to HvZ in college
[QUOTE=MaverickIB;29533578]It's disruptive in a high school environment. It doesn't matter how safe nerf guns are, it won't be allowed.[/QUOTE] Obviously he wouldn't do it during school hours, he just wants permission to do it after school or at lunch or whatever on their property. Seems like a great idea to me.
[QUOTE=Benstokes;29536221]Obviously he wouldn't do it during school hours, he just wants permission to do it after school or at lunch or whatever on their property.

[QUOTE=MaverickIB;29537274]He can just do it at home with friends then. There's really no reason to do it at the high school.[/QUOTE] More room, more varied environments. More stories to tell. [editline]30th April 2011[/editline] What's a better tale? "I had a Nerf war at my house, it was fun" or "I had a Nerf War at my school, it was fucking epic."
[QUOTE=MaverickIB;29537274]He can just do it at home with friends then. There's really no reason to do it at the high school.[/QUOTE] More people, bigger and more interesting arena, more public exposure.
So they should be allowed to do it there just cause it'd be cooler? That isn't the way things work. It'd be awesome if you could play it in a hospital. Or any standard building. However, nobody is going to let you do so because it is disruptive. It's not like schools are empty after school hours, custodians have to go around cleaning up and plenty of teachers stay late for various things. Yeah, it'd be cool, but it's extremely naive to think they'd ever let you do it. It's not as simple as saying "hurr we won't damage anything or bother anyone its okay durr."

At my high school, there were multiple after school tournaments done for various games that could've been done at someone's house, but were "cooler" at the school and they were ok with it. Honestly, as long as they get some house rules down it should be fine.
[QUOTE=MaverickIB;29533578]It's disruptive in a high school environment.

[editline]30th April 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=MaverickIB;29537274]He can just do it at home with friends then. There's really no reason to do it at the high school.[/QUOTE] We can but it'll be a little stuffy with about 30 people playing in my house. We might move to a park for the while and we play at this Elementary School that is open for public use and lots of people play there during the Weekend. We've played 4 games there and it's been fun.
Alright so I doubt many, if any, of you remember but a long while back, I mentioned that my little brother had painted his Nite Finder, and I asked if anyone would like to see. Someone replied yeah then I never got around to it because I'm a lazy ass fuck. That's beside the point anyway. Today he painted his Buzz Bee double barrel, so I decided, what the hell. [img_thumb]http://filesmelt.com/dl/00616.JPG[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://filesmelt.com/dl/00523.JPG[/img_thumb] He says he's going to paint the stock lid thing silver soon. It has a lot of unpainted areas because he painted it whole against my suggestion to disassemble it. It still looks damn good though, I think.
That looks nice. What kinds of paint did your brother use? I just bought some Krylon white primer and sealer and some acrylic for my first paintjob on my Element. I really didn't know what kind to use so I just decided acrylic would be good for details.
He used spray paint for the black and silver parts and two shades of enamel for the rest. He spray painted the parts he wanted metal black, then for the silver, he sprayed a paper towel and ran it over the barrel. The wood, he did with simple paint brushes.
Great news, everyone! I received the support from my Principal. He seems open to the idea as I explained the game more in depth to him. He said it's going to be the District's decision and we need to be an official school club for this to happen. So, everything seems well and with our principal's support, we have a better odds at playing this at our high school.
Don't shoot at Mrs. Caboski, she'll give you a demerit. I wish my school was more chill about guns, I've had at least 4 counseling appointments because I talk about guns a lot and draw them. Doesn't help that I also make sarcastic jokes about JFK's assassination.
tell them to fuck off

I don't care what anyone says, Nerf Guns are definitely more "versatile" than the other shooting recreational sports (paintball, airsoft). You can keep them at home and kind of shoot them at other people just like that. It's a good "fun" toy where you don't have to worry that much about getting stains from paint, or bruises in general.

I mean, Airsoft is good too, but not if you're not protected, and a Nerf dart can't fuck up teeth. Plus it's just less prone to damage. They say Nerf is for pussies, I say, what else is safer? I mean, I like both Airsoft and Nerf, but Nerf is better for impromptu indoors environments where range doesn't really matter, airsoft is more for tactic00l kiddies. I just use Nerf guns to have fun.
Yeah, that's the beauty of Nerf. With no planning or forethought whatsoever, I can call some friends over to have a game in my yard, which is a good battlefield since it's the kind with wide areas on all sides of the house. In related Nerf news, when are they going to release new Streamline guns? A smaller revolver would be cool.
This thread needs more people to enjoy it. On a related note, if I add an Angel Breech to my Longshot do I need to use stefans or will streamline darts still work?
