Favorite Nerf Gear:
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!
