The following picture is of a Nerf shotgun I made from a Nerf Recon, Longshot, and Vulcan. It shoots four darts per blast and each dart flies about 20-25 feet. It is loaded by simply pushing four darts down the barrel; at the Nerf wars I organize when doing team death match we play it takes 3 body shots or one head shot until your out, making this shotgun quite useful. This shotgun is less practical on small battlefields, as it takes about 10 seconds to reload. I never wield it with out another weapon.
