    yeah tommy 20 is fine, but just quietly they are a bit of a POS... better off returning it and getting a stampy or something similar. I know they're more expensive than the tommy 20 but they are better quality and wont jam anywhere near as much as a tommy. I believe Kmart are still selling the stampede + 100 darts for $49

    Alright guys I'm about to blow a freakin gasket... I'm now missing a longshot, a nitefinder and 2 mavervicks (one regular and one sonic) from the last war... This is ridiculous, if anyone has seen them please let me know, stealing is not cool. As such, I'm not letting anyone borrow anything at the next war.

    - Apologies for the double post, I didn't realise no one had responded to the last one...

    Part of the reason you should charge for loaners. Did you get many new people along to the last war?

    Pronga and I both had a 18 clip stolen. Hmm.. Coincidence, My thought is its someone that went to both dates.

    I find it hard to beleive that some people have such little respect.
    Especially when someone else goes out of their way to help them out.
    Thats very low. Guys i hope the culprits own up and make things right..
    would be a shame to stop wars because of this.....

    You could like have to put in like $40 and then get it back at the end so if they stole it THEY would be losing money.

    You give the person who you are borrowing a blaster off say $40 and at the end if you give the blaster back you get your $40 back. So if they take your blaster they are the ones losing money.

    As soon as they borrow the blaster and if it goes missing you know who took it.

    Ya you would know who took it but you would still have $40 of theirs so they wouldn't take in the first place.

    Check the attendance lists, work out who was attending both wars. Then start cutting down your list of culprits, preferably in person. The most likely suspects are those who are young, and don't understand that stealing is wrong. Anyone under ten is your best bet, although don't rule out older attendees.

    This is completely ridiculous and saddening. Whoever did this should most certainly be ostracised from the Nerf community and shot repeatedly at close range with a singled Titan if they ever show their face at a Nerf event again.

    But the problem there is kids, what if people don't have $40, If they had $40 they would of bought there own blaster.

    There is no point in charging $40 we are supose to trust each other in a big community like this.

    $40 is just a bit too much for a hiring fee.. but considering what happened it's debatable.

    I think $15 is a better fee for hiring out Blaster and I think you should only hiring cheap guns like Nite-finder and Mavericks.

    Yeah. That's a bit bullshit. You should probably warn others that don't let them borrow your blasters, they can if they want, but be warned, there maybe players who will nick other's stuff.

    2 of the guns I did lend out were mavericks that had spring replacements... now I have to go through all the crap of getting more springs and modding them again, which has encroached on my time, my finances and my very last nerve... If I were to ever lend equipment again I would be taking names and if you 'can't find' the blaster at the end of the day you will pay to have it replaced, but that will not be happening anytime soon...
    Also luke, pronga found his 18 clip just after you left so just yours went missing... still BS though

    I'm inclined to tell newbies that we don't lend gear. Full stop, end of story.

    I think we should have a welcome, hello speech at the start of wars where we have lots of newbs. Explain war rules, etiquette (don't touch people's stuff, take part in dart sweeps, etc), and safety. (I'll take this on if you don't want to, Alpha-Chick).

    other ideas:


    • Paint loan gear fluoro pink (or whatever) and charge retail cost as bond; if it goes missing we can buy ourselves a new one
    • Get dad's driver's license as bond; if it goes missing we can track it down
    • Buy mavs and/or NFs and/or Tek6 (something cheap, anyway) and resell them at cost+10% to newbs - we don't lend gear, but here is a blaster to start your career with.

    thanks for that which-grep... you are better at talking to kids.
    Those are good ideas, but I think we start with strictly BYO and give the noobs some advice on what to get... if they have nothing then parents can take them to the nearest kmart and then they can come and play

    It's pretty crap that you can't even lend stuff out without all your things going missing. I think I've only ever lost a 6 clip so I've been lucky.

    Definately need to implement a system for lending or just no more lending. Definately also only take stuff you are actively using out of the car, that way atleast all your things will be near you at all times.
