20 Awesome Nerf Games to Make and Play

The Nerf N-Strike Elite Firestrike and the Strongarm Blaster are both good guns to start with.  The Firestrike is best for younger kids – my 3 year old just recently became strong enough to cock it himself.  The Strongarm Blaster takes more strength to cock, but it also holds 6 darts, which is fun.  I just consulted with my boys, and we are thinking age 5+ for the Strongarm Blaster.

The Jolt Blaster is a fun pocket-sized gun.  It has an amazing amount of power for such a small gun!

Now, onto the games!

    I almost by no means submit responses on blogs, but I like to say I take pleasure in reading this website. Typical I weblog about slick guns.

    Great post on gun safety. You definitely captured a lot of thoughts on many peoples minds. I think teaching gun safety first, and then how to use the gun should be next. Thanks for posting
