C'mon. If you were alive in the 80's, it was all about Nerf. Period. None of these fancy computer games and such, just good ol' foam ballistics. I recently took a nostalgic trek to Orange's Nerf page and re-assembled my arsenal that once channeled my wrath into combat.

Arrowstorm:

Loved this thing. Six foam arrows that outranged nearly everything else you could buy at that point. That is, as long as the arrows were still in good shape...

Master Blaster:

This was my shit. Nothing could unleash the sheer firepower that this thing could. Eight foam balls, 2 seconds max. Sucks to look down those barrels.

Ballzooka:

Ahh, the upgrade to the Master Blaster. Not as fast firing, but carried more ammo. Great weapon.

Chainblazer:

I'll be honest, this thing sucked. Good Idea I suppose, but the damn chain broke non-stop, and it was a bitch to reload. Decent power and RoF though.

Sneakshot:

I never, ever used the look-around-the-fucking-corner-with-a-bright-yellow-barrel-in-plain-sight feature of this gun, but it had some good power to it and looked cool as hell.

Rattler:

Worthless. I don't know why I bother listing it. It does fold up to be quite small though...

Strongarm:

Also worthless. One nice feature, it was strapped to your arm. You could always have that gun at the ready, though you can't hit a fucking house with it.

Expand-A-Blast:

Meh, the function didn't do much, but it looked really sweet.

Pulsator:

Wow. Just, wow. This thing was just a really bad-ass version of the Master Blaster. More power, a little slower, but made of pure intimidation. Looked like some hyper-plasma cannon from Terminator or something.

And that's when I stopped getting these guns because I realized, with the exception of the Pulsator and a few others, that all the newest nerf guns sucked balls in comparison to their forefathers. The first gen guns outshot, and outlasted their newer counterparts by a large margin with the occasional oddity such as the Big Bad Bow:

I mean really, that just screams death by foam.
