So Urban Taggers, arguably the premiere blog and source of NERF information on the interwebs, brought up an interesting discussion. "What really MAKES it for you?" There are several sub-groups of fans for as many different types of toy blasters and melee weapons and manufacturers there are. Though one very common push among current blaster and toy gun fans is that they should all fire darts.
Personally, I think there is room for more than just dart launchers is our lives. With the announcement and demos of the new NERF Vortex blaster line, there has been a lot of discussion both for and against disk launchers. Disks, darts, water or . . . balls, this blog will be happy to cover the whole range of them. We definitely need it to shoot SOMETHING, but we're not bent on one form of ammo.
Generally we're fans of the foam. Foam is a great substance, especially for it's safety aspects. You'll hear a lot of pubescent and otherwise self-involved Airsoft fans insist that to "grow up" is to play Airsoft. But foam takes the cake for a lot of reasons in this book; A) You can fire most, if not all foam blasters in the house without breaking stuff. B) You can fire most of the foam blasters at kids without really causing pain. C) You can carry most stock foam blasters in public without inciting a panic in anyone (besides intended victims). D) It's way easier to find and re-use your foam ammo.
