Behold, the Longshot CS-6 Nerf Sniper Rifle. When I bought one for the Lad’s birthday, I had to get one for myself as well. I should probably feel embarrassed about how much sheer glee this toy brings me.
Pictures don’t do justice to the scale of this thing. Fully assembled and with the stock extended it’s over three feet long. For reference, that’s a 22″ monitor behind it on the desk.
It’s eerily lifelike, too. It’s a single-shot clip-fed bolt-action rifle with a collapsible stock and a folding bipod. Each clip holds six rounds, and new rounds are fed by racking the bolt back and forward with a deeply satisfying “chunk-CHUNK”. I’ve never felt this badass holding a blue and yellow hunk of plastic before.
