A couple of neighborhood kids stopped by the other day for a NERF battle. Lola and I were hopelessly outgunned. Our opponents had a brace of twelve-shot handguns. We had two six-round Mavericks that fired about as reliably as Lada’s four-cylinder engine. It may have something to do with dart incompatibility. While I investigate the caliber issue, I’m considering a N-Strike Tactical Vest. In case you didn’t know, NERF battles are ferocious—up until reload. Then age-advantaged combatants yell “Time out!”and hunt for darts. Well, they do if they can. I’m not sure how goofy Lola would look in a tactical vest, and whether or not our opponents would view the vest as an unfair escalation, but Lola wants any edge she can get. Bless. So, what’s THE best NERF handgun?
