Does Everything A Nerf Spider Can

It’s really fairly simple. Slot a dart in the barrel and when you spot a target, point your dart at them and squeeze your hand. The dart will go flying and you can duck behind cover to reload from the wristband quiver. Yeah, it’s not self-reloading; you’ll need to reload by hand. This is more of a backup Nerf weapon than your primary firing tool. If you need help getting rid of any bad habits for good, the Pavlock device is the gadget for you.

Kids Only

Oh, and the bulb that powers the gun had been be firmly seated and sealed, or otherwise this isn’t going to last long.
