Red Longshot. We got one:) Well sort of:P

A good friend of mine went to Trash n Treasure last week (it's basically a flea market for the un-informed) and somehow ended up with one.of.these. He came over and asked me "Is this any good?"

As tempted as it was for me to say "nah it's crap, but you might as well just leave it with me and I'll throw it out for you" I had to tell him it was something pretty damn spesh. It's stock, but in near new condition. Some poor kid's gonna spew when he finds his folks moved it on him...

No front gun or scope, but still.. that had to be the best spend 5 bucks. EVER! Anyone else had any luck like this?

  5. I very rarely buy Nerf new. My best find is a NIB XXL Bazooka for $25 CND. I have also found a working SM1500 at a dump.

    Just search "Cheyner" in Nerf HQ's Thrift store finds thread.

    Not really, I don't like the LS. But perhaps there's more cheap Nerf stuff. You're REALLY lucky. I seriously envy your luck and Nerf collection.

  12. Not as good as that but I have a local thrift store called DI where I get mavs, nite finders and other small blasters for .75 to 1.50 and bigger guns like the magstrike and hyperfire for 3.00

  13. Man! I would have certainly offered to take that off his hands. I live in a more rural area, so any thrift stores around me don't really have much to offer.

  14. I don't know about Australia, but here in the States, red Longshots in any condition are pretty rare! And only $5... Well, you have one very lucky friend.

  16. I got a Max Shot and a Big Blast from a thrift store for 3$ each. Within an hour of owning them I had cut off the ends and was shooting streamline darts that must have gone more than 60 feet and over my fence 'cause I never saw them again! Best 3$ I ever spent.

  17. brand new stampede in box at Kmart on the clearance rack for 25 dollars Aus cause it was only missing the front grip. A couple of powerclips for 10 dollars cause they had no darts and my mate got a vulcan for 25 cause apparently it jammed. but we got it home and it had'nt even been removed from the box

  18. Went to a garage sale and found a complete Longshot for $5, both yellow clips, scope, front gun and all. Got it home and found out it didn't work. A little work and it's up and running perfectly

  20. Red Longshots are just nice lookin. It's a shame they didn't release more/discontinued the Longshot.

  23. I once saw, before I even knew it existed (august '08) a used vulcan, with everything (give or take a few darts) plus an extra belt. At goodwill. For $11. I went outside and puked, because I found out it was already sold. WAAAAAH! DX>
