AWB-Compliant!

Heh. While out shopping for Christmas presents for the children yesterday, I stumbled across this:


Yes, that is a bolt-action Nerf rifle. Clip fed, no less. No collapsible or folding stock, no flash hider or suppressor. It is 100% Assault Weapon Ban compliant! It's even more interesting that the Nerf darts fit into "shells" that get "ejected". It's almost like they're trying to make the Nerf gun just like dad's hunting rifle, no?

Except for that eeeeevil pistol grip, of course - that makes it more deadlier!

That is all.

Awwww maaAAAAAnnn, why did they not have toys like this when I was growing up? Oh, yeah, we got real-looking cap-pistols and muzzle-loading rifles. Never mind.

Very cool . . . .

They had toys like that for us old farts . . . . I have a very cool pump-action rifle that shot ping pong balls. Looking through my "kids memory" is was probably 30" long, made of aluminum - not painted. You loaded it by pressing the balls into the barrel, around 10 or so. As you finished each pump, a ball shot out.

But, magazine fed nerf . . . . gotta admit it's cool.

My son has a Nerf revolver that looks like something Hellboy would carry. Except for the yellow and orange color scheme.

The pistol grip also makes the trigger reach short enough that a kids hand can reach it.

It's one of the Buzzbee Air Blasters line - I have a couple of side-by-side break-open "rifles" that not only use plastic shells to hold the darts, but eject them on opening the action. (Opening also cocks the springs.)

I still need to get at least one of the mag-fed lever action ones.

My son (who is *seriously* into his Nerf guns) would pick a nit with you: Air Warrior isn't Nerf.

His big complaint with such things: The ammo isn't compatible between the different foam-projectile toys. To be fair, even Nerf has some problems where they use slightly different foam darts in different models.

Yes, this means Nerf has people who can rant the way some of us might discuss the whole .223 vs. 5.56x45 thing...

@ Dave H,

I know the exact one your talking about, I kid you not, it is in the bottom drawer of my desk right now, Ha.

Sons friend brought one of these over for play date. It suffered repeated FTE and shredded all five darts within the hour. I wouldn't recommend for trunk carry - I don't think it'll hold up well.

I have that same nerf gun on my desk at work.

I have observed that the "cha-chunk" sound made when cycling rounds during rapid followup shots has a profound psychological impact on the subject of my darty attention.
