I doubt that would work, but if we all e-mail them then that MAY make a difference. I say we should all e-mail them stating why they should bring back older guns and make better new ones. This may make an impact, considering that SSCentral and ISoaker are the two largest Water Gun websites. About 1...

Not really, as water balloons tend to either be to big and burst to soon, or to small and not burst at all. I nailed my friend rigt in the back with one that was to small, and it didn't explode on him, fell to the ground, and popped. They take time to fill, have to be carried so they don't pop, and...

Seems to me that the cheaper the blaster, the more Hasbro makes. CPS is to "expensive" for them to make anymore (or so it seems) and air pressure along with piston is relatively cheaper. Mass production + cheap costs = high profit. Thats my take on things. Hasbro seems to be declining in nearly eve...

I just use All Purpose Welder. It holds very well, and makes a nice, tight seal. Costs about $3-4 USD for a decent tube of it. Just be careful not to get it on anything you want to keep.

My friends and I just grab some guns, fill 'em up, and shoot at each other. Its fun when its hot out, especially when you try to get wet, although the FF's Flash Flood nozzle isn't particularly comfortable at close range...doesn't hurt, it's just annoying. :p I've never done a 1HK, it would be a ba...

Try covering the tank with electrical tape, and if that doesn't work, you could always use epoxy or contact adhesive to fill in the crack. As for the trigger, you could probably make a new one out of...anything really. Just see if it fits, and drill the right holes.

Update: I fixed the trigger and got a nice innertube today. I just need to CVF it and I'm done. On another note, my MD 6000 has a leak, because the stupid 60 second epoxy didn't set ( I let it sit for TWO days ). I covered it with contanct adhesive, and hopefully it will work. The stupid high press...

Indeed. And a general rules system could be modified or whatever for individual use, just like a template. It would be cool if we could make water gunning into a nice little sport, unstead of a hobby. I mean with places to play at, rent guns, ge them fixed, sorta like paintball at close range (and ...

I don't have any toy stores around here except for Walmart. I've been to Walgreens and a few other places, none have water guns. Walmart had 1 Gremlin and a ton of Helix's. There was no price tag, and I already had 2 Gremlins, so I didn't buy any. Hopefull in the coming months a few good pistols wi...

Interesting thing is, Hasbro has a lot of money, Buz Bee Toys does not have as much. Another interesting thing is there are power restrictions for a reason (like putting someones eye out with a water gun). One last thing, this is about peoples opinions on what they like, not about what is better pe...

Uhh...you pump water into a chamber that has no leaks, it compresses because of the air just sitting there, and then you pull the trigger and it shoots the water and air out. I think :D

Oops, missed the IF. Yeah, painting it dark wouldn't be a good idea, but as long as the nozzles orange it doesn't matter (there IS a law stating that all gun replicas or toys etc have to have an orange nozzle thingy).
