We do have allot of loaners, but there is no harm in brining a few as Treezy said, but no real need if you don't want to have to carry them all

BOOM BB6 Down! Let's get the party started over here at BB7!

Hopefully we will have some more tech bought to this game!

Let the waffle games begin!

Need to carefully plan my loadout as im flying down with it, so do I need any Mega blasters? Any games that mega darts count as more? Also the easyjet website says this

"Portable electronic devices (including medical devices) containing lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries such as watches, calculating machines, cameras, cellular phones, laptop computers, camcorders, etc., when carried by passengers or crew for personal use. Batteries must not exceed 2 g for lithium metal batteries and 100 Wh for lithium ion batteries."

So does that mean I'll be good to pack my IMR's and charger or do you think some one could lend me a couple for the day?

Cheers.

Slightly off topic, would you be allowed blasters in hand luggage d'you think ?

I doubt it, so I've booked a hold bag to be sure.

That's a pretty random restriction given that most laptop batteries are over 2g and will often be carried as hand luggage. Personally I'd just pack it in your luggage in the hold.

Anyone other than Treezy intend on using rival at this game?

Are there Balls in the dart pool? If so I might pack my appolo to give It a bash in battle, only ever shot it in the house.

I'm afraid you'll need to bring your own balls. I think I'm the only person who brings any Rival stuff to BB, which makes it easy for getting my balls back after each dart sweep.

I know I've got about 100 rounds, but given that I tend to be very conservative with firing them I've only actually lost 3 rounds in 2 wars so far. That's also testament to the great job everyone does with the dart sweeps.

You'll probably find the Apollo great for HvZ games, especially as the younger kids won't come near you if you have a Rival blaster #intimidation

Unfortunately don't have a huge load of rival rounds just now so will have to leave it. Going to have to pack my case carefully and see what I can bring down, the list keeps getting bigger Very Happy

Enjoy it while you can before a go and buy an Artemis and a Nemesis Wink

Once the price goes down it's all going to go to balls, or be a balls up. As long as I don't drop the ball!

Was tempted by the Atlas on £20 sale.. but the noise of the prime is like nails on a chalkboard!

That's part of the reason I love the Atlas so much, because it's so over the top. Makes a racket when you fire it too, even before you bugger about with the spring. You can always remove the little ratchet pin that clicks on the teeth below the gear train and makes most of the noise; that quietens it down quite a bit.

As does adding a load of grease to the internals. While mine was second hand, it was pretty much brand new out of the box, yet the inside didn't have a drop of grease anywhere. It's noticeably smoother to prime once greased.

Anyway, the race is on for me now to create a hopper feed in time for the next BB. I was going to try and save my spending money ready for Blastersmiths' tech day, but we'll have to see. The temptation to make a 50+ round hopper fed spam cannon is almost too much....

Rival and Mega rounds is something we are looking into!

I'll bring around 250 rival balls with me and we can share those!

I think I'm going to have a play with rival!

Well I went and got myself a 2nd hand Rival Apollo for dirt cheap and got a cheap 1/2 price 2nd mag. I wasn't expecting much for £15, possibly a quick repair job and try out before I resell as happens with most Nerf stuff.

But this.. this 'pistol' thing.. is utterly mental and primary worthy. chunky red and terrifying in a satisfying way!


So count me in on the whole rival thing, if nothing else at least I will get some good exercise priming it! I will try it out in a Nerf war then possibly clear the decks for an Artemis or Nemesis!

Looks like it's going to be a bit of a Rival day. This has me much excited!

Oops, I accidentally aquired an Apollo today. I hadn't intended to spend any more this month, but when Marketplace showed one just a minute from my work I couldn't resist! I've already improved air seals on the plunger and removed some locks so I can now shotgun two rounds at once. Looks like BB7 is going to be Rival heavy!
