If you are a Nerf enthuisest you probably have a lot of darts, and you also probably use the massive number of darts you own to supply you and maybe friends too at Nerf wars. If this is so you have experienced loosing your darts or even other gear.
Here at Nerfboyz we all supply darts, discs, etc. and we have found that if everybody there brought 50 some unmarked darts it is a little tough to get everybody back the exact number of darts they showed up with. After the endless complaints from fellow Nerfers that certain people were taking more darts home than what they came with we decided that every one that wanted their darts kept would mark them with permanent marker. Whether it was their initials or just a black line on the tip, minus the darts that are lost every war, people that marked their darts got about the same number of darts back as when the showed up. This is the same with discs, clips, accesories and even blasters.
Try not to leave your clips loaded over a long period of time because it will damage your darts. They will loose their firmness and not operate very well in clip system blasters. Leaving a vortex clip loaded will not damage the discs in it.
Another helpful thing to keep from losing your stuff is to get a shoe box or a plastic bag to keep your Nerf gear in then instead of having a pile of Nerf darts in the corner of your room you have a spot to put thing when you are finished with them.
When using modded blasters like the recon and longstrike don’t dry fire them; with the air restrictor gone you could destroy your blaster. Thus we put plunger padding in the plunger tube, but even then dry firing can damage your blaster and is not recommended.
