Yeah you're doing it right, just add a little more punctuation and you're good.
Welcome to the forums,
There is a section for Nerf Wars
that is pretty easy to spot when visiting the main page so I suggest you look there for info about upcoming wars. In the mean time, have a look around all other sections of the forums, especially the modifications sections as it will be a A LOT of help if you do want to modify your guns. If you can't put them back together because you don't know where everything goes we have a Gun Internals Directory
which can help you. There is also a handy dandy search button (not the google one) you can use.
Enjoy your time here, I know I have.
