Nerf This

 

It all started with a science fiction show that lasted one season – Terra Nov – we wrote about it in an article called “The Geek Factor” .  It was surprising that a television show with a multi-million dollar budget (the cost per episode ultimately being it’s downfall) was using Nerf guns as weapons.  It was even more surprising that they didn’t think that Nerf Community wouldn’t notice  Stephen  Lang sporting a Nerf Nightfinder and his troops blasting away on Nerf Longshots (albeit both modded).  After talking to friends I began to realize just how many movies and shows use Nerf Guns; like the movie Mega Piranha that simply painted a  Longshot black and used it on screen.  A few articles later and I realized just how prevalent the practice had become.

 

With a little guidance I realized I could duplicate some of the same guns.

 

After the Terra Nova Nerf gun, being an avid gamer I realized just how much Nerf guns resemble those used in the games Boarderlands, and Boarderlands 2 – and I found someone who proved it. It was after finding web sites by the likes of Girlygamer, Brian Johnson, Landgrave Customs I headed out to local Toys-R-Us that was shuttering its doors and picked up some deals.  Recently I finished a Seburo MN23.

But today, for the first time, I used the Nerf guns for their intended purpose as Fran challenged me to a Nerf War.

So now you can sign us…

Snipe Hunt

It’s called a fool’s errand and less commonly a “snipe hunt.”   Anyone who has ever been “the new kid” in any given business has been sent on one.   When I was in the military I was sent out on maneuvers with the rest of the troops.  Mind you,  I was in a rear area…
