Holy Awesome: Nerf Guns Are Back With A Vengeance
Remember back in the day, when you and your buddies – all of whom had parents who would never let them get a BB gun – would get together with those puny little Nerf guns, pumping those little soft pellets out as quickly as possible, hoping to inflict at least a little pain in your opponent? But soon enough, with other options like SuperSoakers, various laser tag arenas and, ultimately, paint ball made its way into your life, the Nerf guns were left to collect a dusty death in the corners of your garage.
Kids these days might not have to worry about that, however. Seeing as the new collection of Nerf guns are balls-out powerhouse weapons:
The image comes through The Bachelor Guy, who runs down a list of the specs for these latest Nerf creations:
Take the N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS 35 blaster. (Up there on the right.) It’ll launch up to 35 rounds from its drum magazine before needing a reload. And you can switch from single shot to “slam fire” mode, and drill Gary from IT a dozen times before he even has a chance to duck behind his scale model of the Starship Enterprise.
Or if machine gunning is more your speed, try the Vulcan EBF-25. (On the left.) It’s a 25-dart, belt-fed, fully automatic blaster (because a 6-year-old needs that…) and comes with a fold-up tripod for stability during full-on office assaults, and the Tactical Rail System which lets you customize your blaster for each mission, like adding the Tactical Scope for hitting long range targets, or the green ‘night vision’ Tactical Light for Nerf wars with Paris Hilton.
If you’re matriculating in college, you owe it to yourself to get a few of these, throw a few chairs out into the dorm hallway as a bunker, and have at it.
