You know what? Fuck anyone that doesn't like Nerf, Nerf is awesome and Nerf always will be awesome. I remember these things as over priced ways for boys to pelt each other with non-harmful projectiles and never really understood them until very recently. These toys aren't just for boys, these are for girls too. These are for eeeveryone.
Especially these kick-ass fucking Nerf swords which I totally need one of at some point in my life because face it.. Being able to take a sword to James and not kill him would be the most awesome thing in the world and frankly Nerf hit home with something like this, I goddamn want one..
It's interesting to note that Nerf has some pretty bad ass designs, their stuff is certainly not suffering for lack of inspiration or uniqueness. Most Nerf weapons look like completely awesome versions of something otherwise bland looking in comparison in real life and I don't even mind the fact that they over use colours like yellow and shit, who cares? They're motherfucking aaawesome.
That's why I was so happy and y'know what before I continue this sentence let me state, you know how you know when someone really loves you?
You know when they bring you a gift home that's totally pointless, you know when a loved one buys you something like a toy as a gift that you're really cared about because what better way to say 'I love you' than giving a loved one something designed solely for enjoyment and fun? Nothing, that's what.
Now continuing on that's why I was so happy when James returned home from work one night bringing with him a bounty of gifts, the bounty of gifts? A motherfucking Nerf gun. Not just any Nerf gun but a bad ass looking Nerf gun that even I can't hate and I despise guns of all type.. Not this one though.. Oh no.. Not this one..
This is the Nerf N-Strike Maverick Rev-6 and it is an awesome toy that looks like a motherfucking daylight queer Revolver version of Judge Dredd's Lawgiver Pistol.
I. Fucking. Love. This. Toy.
Also in spite of hating guns with an intense passion I have used them in the past enough to know my way around them, I am in fact a very good shot even with these because I know how to compensate for the accuracy of the gun or lack thereof and the strange flight of the dart. I've proven this by consistently hitting everything I've aimed for including James' face which I didn't entirely mean to hit, I was aiming for his face yes, his head in particular but I wasn't aiming to hurt him.. Instead I compensated and forgot not to compensate so it'd hit lower and ended up blasting him right in the damn face.
These things are fun, I don't even care that I'm an adult now, I don't care that I'm female and I don't care that these are supposed to be 'boy toys', this thing is so cool.
James of course did the predictable thing, took both our guns and stated 'Akiiiimbo!', to which I just kind of rolled my eyes. You can't really fire these Akimbo style because each firing requires for you to 'cock' the weapon by drawing the grey backing on top back otherwise the chamber just rotates when you pull the trigger.. In other words you need at least one hand free to cock the gun each time you fire and you can't fire in rapid succession unless you're very quick with your hands wielding even one.. Still.. These shoot far and they shoot the dart out hard, James conversely hit me in the neck by accident and it felt like the goddamn vein in my throat was given some serious blunt force trauma.. Not to mention he's shot me in the boob MORE THAN ONCE which fucking HURTS.
I find it incredibly amusing that the package for this reads and I quote;
"Use only darts designed for this product. Do not modify darts or dart blaster."Because now you fucking dip shit morons the only thing I want to do is attach a razor blade to the darts tip (Because it worked so well attaching razor blades to my Beyblade!) and fire that bitch at someone. You say 'do not modify' and I hear 'FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT'S HOLY NOW YOU'VE GOT TO!'
I'd give this toy in review 9.8/10 Big Cat Paws. I love this thing and it's really fun, I can't think of a better toy.
By the way, when is too much too much?
Should we consider weaponizing an entire kid with foam fire arms excessive?
Came out fairly nicely even if it doesn't look particularly pretty and James said it tasted quite good so I'm happy.
