A recent comment on my top 5 recommendations for Nerf gun asked why I didn’t recommend a Maverick.
Well for those of you don’t know about the Nerf Maverick, it is perhaps the best selling Nerf gun of all time. And I was introduced to Nerf gun madness by Steve with this gun only. I have found memories with this gun and actually this is also the first gun I bought.
So with so many fond memories, the question arises why I didn’t recommend this. Well it is not the best anymore. The strongarm is an improved version of this with a better barrel, a better range and better darts. If have to compare the Strongarm with the maverick the former will win any day. But if you are one of those who likes to buy vintage stuff, you should get this one.
My first day with the Maverick
I would like to share with you all an interesting story. I ordered this from Amazon UK, and it took around 15 days to ship. Now I have received many things from my parents, I practically own the latest version of iPad, iPod, iMac, Macbook and iPhone. But none of them even come close to the anticipation I had after I ordered this. Perhaps money isn’t everything right?
It came packaged in a beautiful plastic box with all the instructions. I admired the box for an hour. Then I finally decided to open it. When I picked up the gun in my hand, it was a tremendous feeling. I am pretty sure this is exactly what a soldier feels when he gets his first gun. And then I played, for hours.
I watched so many videos, showed this to my friends, and everyone loved it, even my parents.
So yes, I felt like sharing this with you, and giving you an insight on I started playing with Nerf guns.
