I just recently purchased a Nerf gun at Target as a impulse buy since it was under $20.  I pretty much planed to buy it, go to my friends house and cause havoc and torture my friend daughter which I did.  Looking at the gun you cant but think how well made it is and as if someone made it for adults and now I see why.  Checking online I see all these reviews and even modders like this video on how to make your gun more powerful.  Never thought Nerf gun would have such a hardcore following
