Thread: Human Tests On Tactical Use Of Strobes - "Combat Simulation" Report

    A big thanks to the OP, that story really brightened my day!

    My friend and I did a similar thing a few years back while he was living in the dorms at a Junior college. Over a break, the dorms were empty, and we taped our flashlights to nerf guns and did similar "experiments" with the strobe modes using an obstacle course we made in the dorm hallways.

    Well they ought to be a CPF'er with such a good taste in flashlights!



    Recon's are only $30.00 (AUD) locally with the Longshot coming in at around $10.00 more, I was leaning towards the Recon but I really like what you've achieved with the Longshot chassis... now I'm back to considering both!


    The only Hasbro foam dart gun I've owned previously was the Star Wars Wookie Bowcaster, a single shot (basic) weapon, the Mav' really outclasses it... but it's kinda cool if you're also a S/W fan

    Recon is a fun weapon like the maverick. But not practical in a real Nerf War (Nerf War is the term US players call Nerf Games at least on the Nerf Internet Community). Range is awful when compared to most weapons shoot past 50 feet. Also when Im talking about dart ranges these are flat trajectories. that is the standard that all other guns are tested against. So 100 feet arched is not a lot to get excited about when shot flat.
    Collecting is not about what you have but rather what you DONT have . . . yet.

    "Nerf War" - Oh that's kinda' catchy isn't it? I guess I'll opt for the Longshot after all no point in opting for insufficient firepower! (and I hear it's one of the easiest to modify)

    Don't forget to tape a light with a remote switch to your nerf guns... and get your friends out for a night game, but don't mention anything about flashlights to see if they even bring any. OMG the carnage!
