    yup i know the maverick... I have a lil Nerf N-strike plunger blaster for a sidearm, and I use my heavily modded Recon right now when my nephews want to play nerf... but when I get the Raider I'll attach the small scope and the Red Dot aiming light and go to town on 'em. lol

    Its semi-automatic so its pretty intence.... or at least until you fire all 35 shots (takes forever to reload them all back into the clip :/ )

    sweet! I was going to have a bandolier full up of nerf darts to use as "microdets" but I don't think I'm going to now... I may still do it yet tho, it seems like something a tough bad*** air commando might wear... altho I've yet to see one actually do it. lol

    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    Oh and kal, you know a lot about guns do you think i should cut off the front handle on my nerf? so i could just hold the barrel to make it look more blaster like?

    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    nah I like the front grip... it's more tactical! lol seriously tho... I like the front grip and if u cut it off the gun will be non functional (i think). However, if u disassemble it (take a pic of the internals so u can get it back together) paint it and reassmble it, the thing should still work if u decide u want to play with it! lol Don't forget to keep the orange muzzle tho! It's the law! (even tho a lot of mandos disregard it)

    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    well the law (in the US) states that toy guns must have the front 1/4" of the muzzle painted orange. A lot of ppl paint black over it and get away with it tho... I would just be careful with it, altho my gun looks a lot more like a real gun so I WON'T be taking any chances.

    and it looks like a starwars blaster ner vod. I think it'd do just fine that way. I like it with the grip too tho. Oh well... time to put the ad'ika to bed and get ready for some SpecOps Mission on the Military Channel! lol it's on in an hour!

    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    the left, there's a lil slot there to insert the mag... just like the DC-17s should have... I like the placement of it, but since I'm lefty it'd be nicer if it was right side or bottom fed.

    Ah, well that orange strip is a great place to glue the magazine from a stormtrooper rifle conversion kit.
