The Prettiest Princess

I'd like to preface this post by apologizing for taking an unannounced leave of absence. A lot of things have come up lately and I haven't had much time for Nerf. I also don't believe in posting 'progress reports' and other such things that are mainly filler. Unfortunately, most of the Nerf I have been doing involves a lot of half-finished projects. That being said, I have gotten through some of them:

In Pursuit of Perfection (Recons Need Not Apply)

Most of you that follow this blog or watch my videos are mostly involved in lightly modified or stock class events. Most engagements probably happen within 30' and the extent of dart modifications is the guy who puts hot glue or airsoft BBs in the heads of his streamlines. Strictly speaking, there's nothing wrong with being this kind of nerfer, but there is a sort of big leagues of Nerf, and that is the NIC. Some of you will eventually cross over for whatever reason. But just as a college team would be outclassed by a major league team, Nerfers who come to NIC wars quickly find themselves outgunned and outclassed. At times, it can feel so one-sided that it will seem impossible to reach the other side, and that can drive new Nerfers away from the sport.

It's important to note at this time that no Nerfer is a top competitor at their first war. However, just because you won't be the best doesn't mean you have to be the worst, and you can still be competitive the whole day.

As such, I will be releasing a series of posts (and possibly videos) that will detail various topics pertaining to NIC wars. I will talk about effective primaries, but also why they're more effective. I'll detail construction techniques that will help you make better primaries, and techniques to ensure you can get the most out of the primaries you do have.

This series won't be for all of you. For many of you who play in stock class wars, most of the topics I discuss won't be applicable to your creations. Likewise, those of you who are already part of the NIC won't find a wealth of new, hidden information. But for those of you who are always striving for your better blaster, I hope these guides will help to make your first war a good one.

See you on the field.

Buzz Bee Jaguar Mod Guide

Right after I made the video about the Buzz Bee Jaguar, I decided to make the clip removable. It was easy to do, but having seen the internals I knew I had to do more. This is what I did:

Foam Shooter, the knock-off Nitefinder

As some of you may have heard, the Buzz Bee Panther is seeing a limited release to a select few stores. I tried checking one of the stores, my local Dollar General, but found no Buzz Bee anything. I did, however, find this knock-off Nitefinder, the Foam Shooter for $2:

Buzz Bee Jaguar

As I mentioned before, I recently went to my local Target in search of the new Buzz Bee blasters. I found all sorts of new blasters, but the only new thing from Buzz Bee that they had was the Jaguar:

What's This?

So I recently went to my local Target in search of the new Buzz Bee Blasters. I only found one, the Jaguar (which I will review soon), but I ended up finding a whole lot of other things. Pictures are from my cellphone, so they aren't the best quality.
