#3) Strategy Skills – Having To Figure Out New Tactics When Certain Ones Don’t Work

When someone enters into a Nerf War, they are required to figure out the right strategy to eliminate the enemy targets. Some do not know that they are amazing at making good strategies, they can bring the team together to execute an amazing game plan that eliminates the whole opposing team, while others are not so brilliant and find themselves on the sideline due to elimination from the more strategic enemy teammates.

However, there are those brave enough that take on the challenge of using a Tank Nerf Gun, that holds an incredible amount of ammo that is capable of eliminating the whole team, but once again, it comes down to strategy on how you keep that brave teammate from being hit!

#2) Get The Family To Put Down The Technology – Need A Way To Get The Family Up And Moving?

When everyone in the family, yes including Mom and Dad, have Nerf Guns, there is never a way to say you were defenseless, if you have an argument, get the Nerf Guns out, work out some deal that involves having to run around for a Nerf Battle.

Do you struggle with getting your kids to get up and play more? Do you need a way to get them away from their devices and out in the back yard running around and having a good time? Nerf Guns can be the best way to encourage your kids to get up and play, but there is no better encouragement than the parent playing too!

Plan for entire family Nerf Wars, get everyone a Nerf Gun, a new Nerf Gun as a gift each time will build up arsenals… Family get-togethers will always have at least one fun part, where the whole family gets together for a giant Nerf War, Traditions start whenever you want!


#1) SAFE To Use – No Real Damage Can Be Done By Nerf Darts

Safe To Use

When you are too scared to get a “gun” styled toy, just know that Nerf Darts are made of foam, they have rubber tips and they do not fire at any speed that will do any significant damage if used properly. Of course there is going to be some pain involved if you take a pointblank shot, but once again, no significant damage.

Each Nerf Series has their own Nerf Darts that carry a different look to match the series it came with, but no Nerf Darts will do any damage to actually break anything (Body wise), its just a foam dart.

  1. I found this to be a fun article to read, all great reasons to purchase a Nerf Gun! In the past I have definitely purchased Nerf Guns for my cousins and my brothers to play with, not even thinking of some of these reasons…

    What would you suggest to get for a young kid? Are there any suggestions you have for the purchase of a kids first Nerf Gun, I’m not too scared about them being dangerous, I mean your #1 reason to purchase one is because they are safe.

    Thanks for the article!

    1. Sometimes people don’t need a reason to purchase a Nerf Gun, they already see the fun! I’m glad you learned a few new reasons to purchase a Nerf Gun, I see you purchase them for your cousins and brothers, but what about one for yourself? Might as well get in on the Nerf Gun Fun too!

      A good first Nerf Gun for a younger kid, Nerf Recommends at least ages 8 and older, however I believe if you have a younger child, The Nerf Zombie Doublestrike or a Nerf Mega BigShock with proper safety and accuracy training, would be great first Nerf Guns. I think they will have a great time, lots of Nerf Gun Fun! Those are low ammo Nerf Guns that are easy to use and great to use for target practice, till they can handle a bigger Nerf Gun!

      Hope you like my recommendations, and glad you learned some new reasons to purchase a Nerf Gun, you never know when you might need a better reason! 😉

I always say Nerf Gun Fun For All, so I think it is great you are getting in on the fun with your nephew and nieces, but what about the rest of the family?

  3. What a great post! This is a fantastic idea for upcoming Christmas gift giving. It sounds like a great way to spend a rainy day inside with friends, both children and the adults.
    At what age are Nerf Guns appropriate for? Would a 3 year old be too young for this type of play?

    1. Hi Karen, If you are interested in Nerf Gun Christmas Presents, I have a whole list that you can find a Nerf Gun for everyone this Christmas, Check This Out, 33 Nerf Guns For Christmas.

      I recommend Nerf Guns to everyone, I like to say, Nerf Gun Fun For All, I think Nerf is one of the easiest ways to bring anyone’s relationship closer, and I love your idea, great way to spend rainy days, having fun inside with each other!

      All Nerf Guns are rated for at least ages 8+, and The Nerf Rival Series is rated for ages 14+, but I also stand behind proper training and safety for younger children, if the younger ones can prove they can listen and fire accurately, let them play. Judgement will ultimately be up to you on your 3 year old…

      I hope you plan on getting yourself a Nerf Gun too, maybe a larger one than everyone else’s? You don’t want to be at a disadvantage! 😉

  4. I have heard and seen these around in shops but haven’t really given them much notice. Having read this post, it does seem like a lot of fun, especially if you’re trying to get the whole family involved.

  5. Hey Kenny, how are you?

    I came across your site and I love Nerf Guns, I’m not a kid anymore or do I have any but your site brings back some memories. Also I see there a lot more advanced now with a prime and extra features, awesome toys even when I was a kid.

    I’ll pass it on to friends and family they will love these as gifts. Thanks for the read.


    1. Hey Jeremy, I’m doing pretty well. Thank you for the compliment on my site, I have put in a lot of effort to create a site to help people select the right Nerf Gun to get an edge on their enemy.

      Its a bit of a shame to hear that you used to play with Nerf Guns as a kid but don’t anymore… I mean they are awesome now! So much power and ammo, they are crazy! Nerf Guns are not only for kids, you can get a full group of grown men to have a good time with Nerf Guns, few brewskies down then whip out the Nerf Guns! 😉

      I always say Nerf Gun Fun For All, and I mean it, anyone can have fun with Nerf Guns, you just have to be willing to have fun!

  6. Yes, yes, yes. I love Nerf Guns and I’m an adult! My nephew has several Nerf Guns (he’s 10) and my daughter was bought one of the new crossbow girl guns for Christmas and loves it. She’s also 10. It was such great fun to go out as a family and play – we all need to do much for of this and spend some good old, quality time with our kids doing fun things.
    You always need to wear some kind of eye protection though just to be on the safe side.
    I’ve also see someone using a Nerf Gun to fire the bullets for their dog to retrieve! Got any recommendations for that?!

    1. Hi Gail, awesome to hear your adulthood is still mixed with your inner child, never let your inner child go! When you have kids that have Nerf Guns, there is usually a target they can both agree on… The adults! They think they have the upper hand because they don’t think adults can play with Nerf Guns. Make sure you get yourself one to defend yourself with, I recommend a higher powered one then theirs?

  7. After reading this, I definitely want to purchase a Nerf Gun! My best friend recently got himself a few of them and we had a Nerf War at his house last month. I most say that it was actually kind of fun as I hadn’t done something like that in a very long time. Just like you said though, it’s a way to put down the technology and have fun with friends and family.

  8. Nice content. I like how you give a reason why one should purchase each option and give us some more useful links after some of the reasons you mentioned. It certainly gave me more of an idea of what Nerf Gun I would want to purchase next. I always wanted a big gun that I could go ballistic with, and now I know that the Nerf N-Strike Elite Mega Mega Mastodon is my kind of Nerf Gun.

  9. Nerf Guns are always a great toy for me. Whether they are bow and arrow, gel blasters or water guns, I just love all of them. I think every parent should buy Nerf Blasters for their kids because they will learn about aiming and shooting.
