So yesterday was my little brothers sixth birthday! I spent quite a bit thinking of what to get him. My family had already celebrated his birthday with him, last Friday, because my grandma was in town, and my mom left for New York the day after.
He got a couple iron man action figures, Split/Second a ps3 racing game(which he's quite good at,) and some other random stuff. I had no idea what to get this kid, until we had a Nerf fight a couple days ago, and I realized half of his Nerf guns were a failure and quite weak. So I went to the Nerf website.
I saw several cool ones, like the sniper rifle that shoots 35 feet..But one truly caught my eye.
The Nerf N-Strike Vulcan. I thought, I must have this beast, not only for Cameron, but for myself! So I ordered it in a heartbeat, and waited anxiously for it in the mail. It came Thursday, and I went with Alyson to Target, and we picked up an extra belt, and the 6 D batteries it required.
...I had to test it when I got home. It was just calling my name to unload havoc upon the world, while my little brother was asleep.
It has two firing modes, single shot, and rapid fire. Single shot is much like other Nerf guns, requiring only to be cocked, and then pull the trigger to unleash one Nerf dart flying at your target. However, rapid fire, is like raining down a flurry of hell down on your opponents as they scramble to not be shot. It shoots three darts a second, and holds 25 in a clip.
I've heard that you can modify this, to hold more, to shoot faster, and to be all together more epic.
If you're into Nerf and what not, this gun is amazing.
