I'm now 22, meaning garish plastic weapons are now cool again. You know Nerf guns?

Some look like this:

nerf_maverick.jpg

These are OK. Sometimes life deals you a shitty hand, and you need to compensate for shortcomings. Then you use this instead:

nerf_vulcan.jpg

Either way, you're dealing foamy death to your plastic wielding opponents.

I'm putting a team together. Then I'm taking that team to this other guy's team, and shooting that other team with foam bullets. I feel that this is a worthwhile endeavor. Just looking for imput / advices / key learnings SE++ might have on Nerf related warfare.

Specifically, having a Nerf shootout in a crowded city centre. Good idea?

    Oh man I have the break open double barrel not-Nerf gun and it is the best thing ever.

    even if the casings are completely superfluous and are yet another thing to lose.

    I've heard great things about the Nite Finder EX-3, but the idea of having just 1 round at any given time just...mmm. Seems like a liability. :/

    It has the best range and accuracy of all the Nerf sidearms, but just 1 shot? I am undecided.

    The Maverick is still the best.

    Got one of the original blue ones. Fast, accurate, decent range.

    Also, ridiculously large revolver. The manliest kind of handgun.

    I find it hilarious that according to Wikipedia:
    Proposed failure scenarios for Bitcoin include a currency devaluation, a declining user base, or a global governmental crackdown on the software and exchanges.

    Gonna use this bad boy as my main;

    AlphaR.jpg

    Then a Maverick as my side, and the Nite Finder for the guy I do execution style.

    I was trying to justify grabbing one of the sniper rifles too. But man. Their range just blows. And the older, better, (cheaper in the US) model "Longshot" is sold at 4 times the proper price here in the UK. While the Longstrike looks shit hot, reviews indicate it is terrible. :/

    This reminds me I need to get my Nerf guns out of the back seat of my car and taunt my dog with them some more. Also take my Raider apart and remove the air restrictor for MORE POWER.

    My local Kroger had a few Nerf guns marked down a couple weeks ago and I came this close to buying a second Maverick and the unholy miniaturized baseball pitching machine that is the Barricade, but I reminded myself I'm trying not to spend money on "frivolities" right now.

    i don't know anything about bitcoins

    let me give you a quick primer:
    My 4 mining rigs were still mining bitcoins (I left them on 24/7), generating lots of heat. It was extremely hot. I eventually woke up due to the heat, but it was already too late.

    I had a terrible heat stroke, and it was quite frightening and disorienting. I not only felt physically terrible, having trouble breathing and terrible nausea.

    and

    Some day, I'll get a bandoleer full of those one shot pistols, two holsters for Mavericks, a stealth shot up each sleeve, a Barrel Break in each hand, and a vulcan on my back.

    It will be glorious.

    messing with my Longshot right now.

    The only thing that could make it better is if I got my hands on one of those 36 shot drums.

    I guess it isn't worth the price of a Raider to you just to get one? It would be pretty rad if they started selling them separately now that there's several guns that can use it.

    Nah, I've got other things on my list to buy before more Nerf guns.

    Besides, after I bought two Mavericks everyone I knew started getting me random Nerf shit. Who the hell knows what'll happen if I spend more than 12 bucks on these things.

    Although, as I found out they had ulterior motives. There was a Grand Nerf War. It was suitably awesome.

    the Vulcan is surprisingly good at mowing down zombies.

    No. It's a new alternative currency that can't be traced and cannot be broken down into smaller increments. There is no equivalent to the cent in Bitcoins.

    And I think one Bitcoin is like 30 bucks right now.

    Also Bitcoins are made by crunching some algorithm or something. It just sounds idiotic.

    If you can find a drug dealer willing to accept bitcoins as currency yes. And the Feds can't trace the transfer.

    like, it's designed to be untraceable or something.

    fun fact two of the main places you can spend your bitcoins are on an online drug site and a place where you can buy random shit like slim jims

    they are truly the currency of the future
