Last week Hasbro sent us the Nerf Blaster Falconfire from the Nerf N-Strike Elite Accustrike Series. It’s actually pretty cool compared to the others (well compared to our other one) as the new range has redesigned bullets that make them shoot further and more accurately which does make shooting down plastic bottles easier, although this means that mom isn’t scoring all the points anymore haha.
Now, I am not an advocate for guns but I grew up as a kid in the Namibian desert which means I could shoot from the moment I was the same height as the shotgun I was firing with. We didn’t shoot to hunt, we learned how to respect them because as he always says – Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.
So when Fysh got his first Nerf Blaster I took a leaf out of dad’s page and first and foremost taught him respect for it. And of course then we moved onto perfect aim because he is my kid after all and I hate being hypocritical ;)
We have had a lot of fun with it, testing it out against the old one, only meh part is that the old bullets aren’t compatible with the new blaster. They fit and all that but they don’t fire so mama needs to make sure there are some extra ones for him in his xmas box :) It does come with a few but having spares means we have to bug the neighbor less to get the ones back that go over the wall haha.
Now here’s the bit you’ve been waiting for…
If you want your own one for some holiday bottle shooting or you want to join one of the challenges on the Nerf Blaster website you’ll be happy to hear that Hasbro has given me an extra one to give to one of you!
And because according to Fysh he is an expert in all things Nerf Blaster he’s going to get to choose who it goes to and he says that you need to leave a comment telling him how many pets you have and which is your favorite colour (yeah I don’t know, it’s random but it’s what he wants haha)
