Got a nice gumtree haul this morning. Only a few bits I'm going to keep - the rest will go to (the kids of) guys at work.



50 (airsoft gun was not included)

If any of the scottish guys want anything out of there (other than the longstrike and raider bits) then let me know.

Hah, I was going to charge up today and get that you swine!

(PS, I hope that's within the rules- bragging's made all the better when you know you beat some other dude)

Today's gumtree trip wasn't that special- 2 raiders and a stampede for 20, that's me fully stocked with stocks (and overstamped with stamps). Sorry, I'll stop that.

But notable by coming with a ton of darts which weren't trashed! It turns out, I rather like doing quality control on used darts, it was bizarrely disappointing to discover they were almost all in good shape. Maybe I should stamp on them.

<edit to avoid angering the gods of doublepost>

This weekend, was through in glasgow so had a wee look on ebay and gumtree and whoops...



50 and an immense amount of stress navigating the posh end of glasgow. One of the longshots is eating darts, so it needs a little love but tbh I was just after the sights! Particularily pleased with the random bits of longstrike sight as I've got half a sight already, these complete it. The vortex blaster is just for the sight.

Oh and the havok fire! I've never played with one of these before, I am absolutely in love. Was planning to dump it straight on ebay but not a chance, it's mine. I may need to make a mount so we can fit it to my mate's hilux.

Not a super mega bargain but I'm pleased.

So I reached Peak Nerf, courtesy of gumtree and a couple of auctions. Some stuff for me, some stuff for ebay.



(this isn't actually everything I brought home the other night, I'd left a box in the car- there's another complete longstrike, longshot, raider, and a praxis with a nitron sight)

Most pleased with the Swarmfire and Speedswarm, haven't tried these before, I really like the shape and function. And the Revonix, if it can be made to feel less like it's full of broken bits. I finally got a Deploy! Woo hoo!

Bought 5 BNIB Elite 18 clips. 10.

Clearance at a non-branded toy store in the Cotswolds! I cleared the shelves.

Also gonna sneak this in:

Lacked a red Lightsaber from my collection I found the other day. The old 'bruise before bending' ones are considered vintage and going at 15 a pop, often not including P+P. Saw one for 8 with 3 P+P in my city, offered him 6 and pick-up. He agreed. Not necessarily a bargain, until I turned up to collect and he threw in a free 'Bruise before bend' light and sound Lightsaber that can be BOTH RED AND BLUE!

Clearance bargains in Corby,Northants is a large Argos warehouse where they sell off a lot of old and refurbished stock.This was the first time ive managed to get more than one packet and I'm  convinced that most of dart bundles on the bay are coming from here....

Argos clearance is an epic treasure trove of awesome. Trouble is that they only sell in mixed pallets. I managed to get hold of one Nerf pallet but it was a faff.

What I assume you have there is some enterprising genius has opened a shop selling off the stuff they buy on the pallets. Good to know that there is an outlet though. I might have to investigate that.

Picked up a Hammershot, Strongarm, Demolisher and 30 ZombieStrike darts for 18 on Facebook. Missing e out on a Rapidstrike for 8 which was annoying. Still not a bad haul though.
