Washington and Lake Parks in Milwaukee. Look 'em up on Google maps and tell me those wouldn't be awesome battlegrounds.

The Domes in Milwaukee. Three stadium-sized arboreatums, one is a jungle, another a desert, a third is set up for electric trains and changes displays 4 time per year. An office or apartment building would be cool too. Rather than specific locales, I'd like to participate in waterfight set up to re...

Cool commercial, great product.

It was intentionally corny, what with people being thrown backwards from long-distance shots from dimestore pistols, but it was quite entertaining overall.

This may sound simplistic, but are you making sure you're pumping it all the way? Mine would take a lot of pumps to reach halfway on the gauge, and then one or to reach full.

Also, does the gun leak at all?

Possibly European? I seem to remember Supersoaker issuing a few really different color variations across the seas.

The above are all good suggestions. I'd recommend something with a decent sized blast and good shot time. I wouldn't consider a CPS2700 to be overkill in this situation. If the cats belong to someone, call animal control and have them picked up. The owners will have to pay to pick them up. If you k...

The Storm 2500 is a great entry-level rifle. Holds a decent amount of water, looks cool, and has the Storm-typical durability. The only downside is the rather anemic beam that it shoots. The secondary fire is cool: With the flip of a switch, the pump transforms into a 5x pump-action. Just make sure...

I've seen all the ones on the page Isoaker linked. The 500 gets a stellar review, but I never got mine to work right. The 800 is a fantastic pistol, if a little big. Never used the 760, but I think it was part of a 2-pack that Storm sold. The combo gun is like a dimestore gun IMO, and in the same l...

Primary terrain was urban - between houses. We'd go to a park for playground equipment or into the woods for wars if we felt like doing something special. But neighborhood fighting was was what we did the most of.

Re:Overrated Monsters I think it depends on the user. The guns sold well because there'd never been anything that insanely big before, and for those people who got them to have the biggest thing on the block, yeah, they were overrated. My brother on the other hand, was positively surgical with his ...

Yes we did. We'd have pistol-only fights or rifle-only fights. XP or equivalent fights were popular too. Storm or equivalent fights were lots of fun. I will say that it is approximately 0 fun when you're the only guy on the battlefield with an SC600, and everyone else has something from the Monster...

My local army/navy has gasmasks for $40-80 a pop. Probably higher quality, but I'm not anticipating a mustard gas attack just yet. Body armor and NVG are next up on the list. If I could find a decent gasmask for $10 though, I'd be on those like stink on fish.

Generally, causing Super Soakers to look like real weapons is a bad idea. Regular citizens will call the cops when they see them, and threatening people (say, intruders) will bring up the threat index without a suitable way to lower it. The gasmask's cool, where'd it come from? I'm looking to purch...

Try going without the ninja suit. You'll probably get farther that way. Certain concessions can and should be made to avoid unduly alarming people.

I hope the police laughed this person (why doesn't it surprise me it was a woman (no offense to any women)) out of town.

Considering retiring? Don't. Life is too damn short and death is to damn long to live your life for someone else. Unless you HONESTLY want to, don't give up.
