Nerf/Dart Tag/Blaster fight Gear/Accessories: Grabit Pack (Ultra!)

Alright, let's get to it.  Chances are you've been to thinkgeek and saw this picture.

Well, I did.  I got one (two!) and for the better part of my recent Nerfing history, I've used it.  Holding a sidearm, or some extra ammo.  Why?  Because sometimes I didn't have cargo pockets, and sometimes I want to look like That Guy Who Is Overdoing It.

Anyone seen these?  All this was at wal-mart (US) for just under $100.

Nerf Vortex Pyragon... Battle-tested!

Just wanted stop in... Didn't get any photos/video from today's game w/TTAGS (wanted to focus on playing for the first time in awhile), but my Nerf Vortex Pyragon and the 40 round drum got some work today :)

The slam fire action is pretty smooth and flawless (as demonstrated in some test fire videos) but the accuracy and general feel of the blaster is aces in my book (to be fair, we were playing Freeze Tag and on a playground with a jungle gym; about 30-50' apart at times.)  I was moving under/around well with it, and taking out entire teams under a cloud of discs.  No misfires, no jams, and replacing mags when empty was easy and fast.  Can't ask for much more in my book.

If only I had a room full of UV lights and a slew of white vortex discs... Disc Wars a la Tron coming right up!

Nerf Vortex Pyragon - live!

Got it out of the box... There it is! (10 discs are already loaded, hence you only see 30.)
Gimme some time with it & I will put out a review soon.  Also might come up with some trick shots of my own ;)

ANNNNNND.... I posted this on facebook, but one more shot.  It looked so good I couldn't help it:)

Word.  The Nerf Vortex Pyragon wearing a LightningStorm stock :)

Vapor Deltas and Atlases? At San Diego Comiccon? SDCC?!?! (Also, where to buy it if you're not at the show....)

So the Vapor Delta and Vapor Atlas are a couple of new offerings from Vapor that are pretty cool.  Disposable ammo, streamlined looks, and pretty decent performance out of the box.  Looks like there's something cooking on their end at San Diego Comic-Con.   The Vapor facebook page might have more details on what they're preparing, but it looks like a lot of blasters and ammo.  Lots of ammo.  If you're at SDCC, I'm super jealous.  Enjoy your time there, and hope you find Vapor while you're there!  If you're not (like me) then you can still find a Vapor blaster (Delta or Atlas) online, and for a discounted weekend-only price!

Nerf funny movies are at it again

Watch "Nerf Mofilms: Chalice of Kingslee House" on YouTube

Not quite Nerf at the Office but a little comedy short off the Nerf channel.  Grandma dual-wields, hilarity ensues.  Points off for headshots with a Super Soaker?!  I contest!

(on my tablet atm and not able to embed atm.  I will fix this later tonight.)

Female-centric: Toy blaster companies, you're missing out!

Happy Sunday (or Monday) y'all.  It's been tough to pull away from all the Nerf Elite news that's been exploding across the internet, especially since it looks like the Nerf Retaliator and the Rampage have already hit shelves in some areas.  Not that that's surprising, as there has always been a hiccup or two with the early release of blasters.  A Nerf Longshot was first spotted in a comic book store way before release, the Stampede, Vortex, Raider, all of it.  Some places do, others don't.

ANYWAY, back to what the title of the blog is about; showing that our hobby is not just a gigantic boys' club.  I've had the "Foamme Fatales" gallery running for a good couple years at least, showing that Girls Nerf Too.

More after the jump.... (GIRLS NERF TOO)
