    Or am I just the only one who's "open" with my toy gun fascination?

    Hello all, I'm a 35-year-old Nerf herder from Melbourne's western burbs.
    Married with 2 small kids. My older daughter is 4 and she has her own unmodded Nite Finder, which she loves, even if she sometimes needs help with the cocking handle.

    I was into airsoft for several years overseas, but had to sell my guns before moving to Australia 7 years ago. I discovered Nerf guns 2 years ago and have slowly been building my collection.

    At the moment I have a painted & modded Maverick, 2 modded Recons, a modded Longshot and a painted & modded Vulcan. My non-Nerf arsenal includes a painted & modded sawn-off BuzzBee Double Shot, a stock BuzzBee Belt Blaster, a stock Tommy 20, a stock AirZone 8 pistol and a painted & modded AirZone Punisher Minigun.

    I'm designing a gun rack to go on a wall in my study so I can eventually display my foam armoury, along with my martial arts weapons

    Well, I would've guessed "yes" but for Grendal's post.

    Welcome aboard, anyway. I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures of the cabinet when it's done.

    You sound like an older version of me, or at least where i want to be at that age (married, kids, toy gun fascination) .
    Good to know that people older than me can still like stuff like this.

    Welcome.

    Reign of Foam, Australia's first national nerf war, is coming to Melbourne this year Dec 18-19. There's a big post about it in the nerf war section with rules on what we'll be playing, FFP.

    Good to see there's some older people here who are not ashamed of playing with toy guns.

    I've got you beat, largamus - I have a gut *and* arthritis!
