Disclaimer: I am 26 years old.

But holy shit have these things come a long way. Fully-automatic fire, functioning clips, fucking ammo drums. Growing up in the naughts might have sucked for a lot of reasons but the advancement of Nerf warfare certainly isn't one of them.

nerf wars in the house back in my younger birthdays was the greatest. Now I've moved on to airsoft

Jesus we had a nerf war back in the day and it was glorious. I packed a 30 round monster reminiscent of the Lancer from Gears of War and took 5 minutes to reload. Now kids have cool shit like this

Super Soakers now-a-days are a joke. Effing battery powered and shit. Kids don't even have to pump the damn things. No wonder kids are getting so soft.

Super Soakers have definitely fallen from grace. But I suppose they figured little kids hauling around 50 pounds of water on their backs was a safety issue or some shit.

I had the same realization last year as well. But man, me and the homies had some legendary nerf wars in this dude's house back in the day. The guns were shit compared to what you can get now tho.

I used to have a pretty decent Nerf gun collection. Bazooka, crossbow, machine gun. I wish I had kept them. :(
Yeah I wish I had kept (and been on the lookout for) more of my older generation Nerf stuff. Here's the one I ordered today:



I'm not a big fan of the bipod or shield but the main gun itself looks pretty rad so I figure I'll just use it without all the extra garbage. Apparently there's a 35-round drum upgrade for it and I'll almost certainly be indulging.

Nerf guns are awesome, brought a couple of the shotguns last year.



Never had super soakers when I was a kid, in our neighborhood we use to fill empty bottles with water and using a hot needle make a hole in the lid, they were the shit.

I actually have that one. We used them at my old job when someone was leaving - we'd give them the firing squad. Imagine 20+ grown men shooting at you with at least 30 nerf guns (some of us had 2!).

Anyway, the problem with this model is that it requires a bunch (I think 4 or 6!) C batteries, and their weight makes it VERY back heavy; the gun is incredibly unbalanced because of that. It's pretty awesome though to unload 18 bullets that quickly :)

Actually there`s a quick fix for that you can modify the battery compartment so that it takes a cordless drill battery. The battery is both lighter and the higher voltage makes it shoot faster.

Should have invested in airsoft equipment OP. Also running around for hours with 25+ lbs of equipment can be an incredible workout.

Yeah, that's exactly what people want for having light-hearted fun with friends or family members inside the house or offices.
Get them involved! I go out every couple of weeks to the field. We make a day of it.

Real talk, the only kids who used water balloons in a Super soakers fight were kids without Super soakers... and they would get lit up constantly.

And yeah the Super Soaker and nerf arena of the new generation is just ridiculous. They don't fuck around anymore.

I would love to have a old gen vs new gen soaker/nerf fight though. All us old geners revert back to our adolescent forms with our classic gun equipment and go head to head with this new pansy ass generation and their new OP guns. Shit would be pretty glorious...

Real talk, I used both. I'd drown your ass before you even knew what was going on.

Real talk.
