Nerf- it's not just for kids anymore.
Author: JT Smith
Adults and techies are buying Nerf guns left and right, at almost the same rate as children are. The foam-firing guns appeal to adults as a form of office stress-relief, and numerous tech companies including Google and Red Hat have been known to buy the guns by the carload. Despite Hasbro making the guns weaker and safer for small children to play with, a culture of nerds on the Internet modify the guns to be as powerful as paintball guns to make "wars" more fun. -Steve
