Jerry with the converted c96 Mauser:

StarWarsReally neat slo-mo footage in this.  The Mauser is one of a kind.

If you’re a Star Wars nerd and are looking for more blaster related content, make sure to check out when Adam Savage from Mythbusters built one.

How NERF became the world’s best purveyor of big guns for kids:

It may seem silly to take this stuff seriously as feats of engineering, but in their own way, these toys are as well designed as a Dyson vacuum. When you pick up a blaster, when you feel the heft, when you put the stock to your shoulder and wrap your fingers around the handle, when you chamber a dart and pull the trigger and the dart comes flying out with that immensely satisfying thunk, it doesn’t feel like what you’re holding is just some cheap hunk of plastic. And every detail of that experience has been meticulously designed, engineered, and tested.

If you’re interested in NERF, engineering, or design, make sure you read the full article over at WIRED.

I can’t believe how complicated the NERF guns look now.  Pictured is a N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire Blaster which can hold 144 darts across 8 removable magazines (they call them clips haha) that sit in a rotating drum.  Crazy stuff, I’m really not surprised that company pulls in $400+ million per year.

Unlike the Hard Liquor Alcohol Gun I posted about earlier… this one would be just plain disgusting to drink from:

Nothing like some shaken up beer foam to have you and your friends farting all night. :D

The idea is nicely executed though.

I’d post the website of the company that makes this, but I get a malware warning in my browser when I try to visit it.

Believe it or not, “Hot Chicks With Stormtroopers” is the name and topic of an actual blog.  Nothing surprises me anymore.

Pictured below is actress Kristen Bell with a couple of Storm Troopers.  The blog owner posts a new picture or video every couple of days.

Most are carrying blaster rifles, which is why this post is relevant to my blog’s topic. :P
