Re: MOAB 2019

Well if you wanted to pique my interest, that's one way to do it, haha. You know me, I love strategic battles. Throw in hardcore play styles and team imbalances, and you have my SEAL of approval (ha ha, bad joke). Chief is coming for sure? How is he getting down? I messaged him the other day but hav...

Re: Gun Storage

What guns do you have these days? I recently got the last of my blasters down from NY, so I have basically my entire arsenal aside from the guns that belonged to my brother. As far as which ones still work though, I'm not entirely sure. However the plan was to eventually phase them out and replace ...

Gun Storage

Hey all, so I wanted to talk a little bit about solutions for storing water guns. My current issue is that I live in a house with no basement and very little in terms of storage space. Right now I've got a pile of guns in a corner in my bedroom, and three large cardboard boxes filled with them scatt...

Re: MOAB 2019

That probably would actually be the best date for me 'cause I get Monday off, but I still don't know if I can or not. I'll keep you updated. Doing this in the same fashion as the "HOG Lite" idea I talked about in the other thread would be cool. Got any cool battlefields around that nobody else has b...

Re: New Idea for Intense Gameplay

Yeah, this wasn't really meant to be taken seriously, as the date implies. It did stem from a serious idea I had a while back though. Like marauder, I do kinda like the idea, but then I realized that it would result in the same kind of gameplay as we got when we tracked stats, only ten times worse. ...

New Idea for Intense Gameplay

Hey all, so I've been doing some thinking. I've come to the conclusion that water wars just aren't intense enough anymore. We just show up, go into the woods, and start shooting at each other. There's nothing at stake, which makes it kind of hard to get into. So what's the solution to this? I'm glad...

Re: MOAB 2019

Most of March should be okay, although the Myrtle Beach trip will most likely be moved to next weekend (9th-10th) because the weather isn't so great this coming weekend. You're still welcome to join us. I'm pretty sure it's a short drive for you. As mentioned, April is looking pretty busy at the mom...

Re: Plastic Welding

Yeah, for sure. Just note that whatever you want to weld should be something that you don't care about the aesthetics of. Reason being, it won't look pretty unless you take the time to sand it down and repaint it. Internal tubing and stuff doesn't matter, and that's primarily what I'd expect to use ...

Re: Is Water Warriors Dead?

I actually just saw that. Right as I was considering "un-liking" their page, haha. But that's kinda weird. The Outlaw is like ten years old now (remember how it used to be called the Equalizer? I actually have one of those), so I don't know why they keep re-releasing it. If they're going to do that ...

Plastic Welding

So on my way to visit marauder the other weekend, I hit a dead animal on the road and cracked the front chin spoiler on my car. Fortunately it's just a black plastic piece and not the actual bumper. But to the point, a friend of mine told me about this plastic welding tool that can be used to fix it...

Re: Is Water Warriors Dead?

Good find! I'm willing to bet that gun is going to be another Adventure Force/Walmart special. Pity it seems to be a little cream puff of a blaster. Can't believe BBT is reduced to building generics now. Yo, even Hasbro has been making more powerful guns than they have lately (i.e. the Soakzooka and...

Re: Is Water Warriors Dead?

Yeah I'm thinking it's possible that BBT will continue to build guns for Walmart and stuff, so it would be good to keep an eye out. It's not like they were really delivering much recently anyway, but it's still a little disheartening to see them seemingly abandon their water gun line that served the...

Is Water Warriors Dead?

So I just checked out http://www.buzzbeetoys.com/ to see if there was any information on this year's WW blasters, only to find that Water Warriors is no longer mentioned anywhere on the site. At least nowhere that I could see. All the water blasters and the Water Warfare Handbook are gone, and all t...

Battlefield Injuries

Water warfare can be a rough sport. Share with us any injuries or accidents that have happened to you while fighting. This could also include an injury or some other issue that happened to you prior to the battle, yet you still fought through it. As sucky as they are when they happen, they make for ...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

We are? Well hopefully on Sunday, because I'll probably be in Kentucky tomorrow. I brought my 12-gauge back down from NY, so we could go trap shooting or something.

Did anyone get any pictures from this event?

I thought the exact same thing when looking at the photos. It reminds me of Paine, what with the pond and some of the terrain. I approve. But I will be out of state on the 29th, so attending isn't really an option for me unfortunately. Have fun and don't forget to take pictures! Also, wi-fi and hot ...

Re: Replacement screws for old Super Soakers

Or you can just go down to your local hardware store and not have to wait a month for shipping. :p It might be a little more expensive, but still dirt cheap. If I remember right, most CPS screws are #4, but I'm sure the size doesn't have to be exact; it is plastic after all. So it doesn't matter if ...

Re: A chart showing pump diameter vs. force

That's pretty awesome. Unfortunately those numbers don't mean a whole lot all by themselves. Does any body know how much pressure is typically built up in a soaker? Not really sure how many pounds of force is considered a lot either. I'm assuming anything over 40 lbs (going by the numbers in red)? I...
