Nerf Blasters introduced foam-based warfare to backyards in the 1980s. Part of the toy lines’ ongoing popularity is that DIYers can modify their blasters for increased range, firing speed, and firing capacity.
Author Luke Goodman (known on YouTube as “Out of Darts”) has written an invaluable resource and introduction to the hobby for novices like me: The Nerf Blaster Modification Guide: The Unofficial Handbook for Making Your Foam Arsenal Even More Awesome.
Throughout ten chapters and 120 pages, Goodman delves into a wide range of Nerf-modding topics. Early chapters introduce the various tools needed and proper safety practices. Several chapters of step-by-step mods include easy-to-follow instructions, full-colour illustrations and photography.
With extensive expertise on the topic, Goodman also offers insight into how various blasters operate and explains some of the electrical, soldering, and painting skills to make successful mods.
