Motivate Your Office's Dan
Every Office has a Dan. You know, the one who needs some extra motivation from time to time? At our office our Dan is actually named Dan, it's a weird coincidence, but sometimes things just work out that way. The motivator that we've found works best on our Dan is this Nerf N-Strike Elite Triad EX-3 Blaster. When Dan is acting up, we can go to his cube and fire a trio of darts in his direction and things seem to improve for a while. It even seems to work when you are out of darts. The sound of the blaster blasting is enough to make our Dan jump and get back to work. Even the sight of the orange coloring on the front of the blaster peeking around his cube wall is starting to be enough to help motivate Dan. All of this comes without any pesky HR interference as the darts are soft enough as to not actually hurt Dan's delicate sensibilities. It's also a good idea to be armed in case of all out office warfare.

I purchased 11 for a birthday party. At the beginning of the Nerf war, all guns worked. Within 10 minutes, one right after the other 4 of the 11 guns jambed. With great manipulation, we were able to unstick the triggers, but afterwards, they all would only shoot from only one of the 3 bullet slots (the bottom one). One stopped working all together. So, out of 11 guns... only 6 lasted most of the duration of the party. By the end of the party only 3 would shoot from all 3 slots. The nerf war was 2 hours long. Thats rather disappointing averages. It was hard telling the kids that I was sorry, there was nothing I could do...

It's worse than on a couple other guns I have with ...
Pros: Very surprisingly powerful for its size. Shot distance matches many larger, and even some lightly modded, guns I own. The automatic barrel firing system is just magical. Slap a dart in any barrel and it shoots it. Cons: Its automatic barrel firing system that magically knows what barrels have darts in them requires nearly brand new darts or the darts just fall out. It's worse than on a couple other guns I have with the same system.

Awesome party favor for nerf/dart wars bday party
We ordered a ton of these for my son's Nerf bday party and they were excellent! We had kids from ages 3 to 10 playing, and everyone was able to use these without any fuss or need for help or instruction. We had a BLAST (har har) and I'm so pleased with these Triads. We sent them home as party favors for each guest, and even their parents have gotten in on the Nerf action and told me that they're enjoying it!

Failure to load
The gun is small as expected. What wasn't expected is was the pickyness of the gun. Some darts won't work in it. We have a few Nerf darts and some knock off darts. When you load the Nerf darts it seems that about half of them won't stay in the barrel. The darts won't stay seated in the chambers. They pop out a little way and won't fire. The knock off darts don't seem as prone to the issue. Very annoying in the heat of battle to keep trying darts until you find a few that will stay loaded in the gun.

The bottom dart holder has a clip/spring/something broke in it and often won't hold the dart all the way in so when you try to fire it, it only moves about half an inch (not even completely out of the gun). This has really impacted my fighting and defense capabilities in our office wars and I'd recommend buying elsewhere, buying a different version, or accept the fact that you might only be buying a gun that can shoot two darts......choice is yours.

Tag, you’re it!
My boyfriend decided he needed something to shoot at me with while I was behaving as my usually sassy self. I, of course, could not tolerate only one nerf gun in the house. So, he obliged me with a purchase of two. The gun I got worked as expected and actually shot quite far. The gun Nathan got would fire 3 out of 5 with no problem, and the last 2 would misfire, stay put in the gun, and need readjustment every time to get a shot.

1 good thing is that it shoots far, but a lot of Nerf guns shoot generally far these days. Another important thing is that it's generally hard to aim, as the gun's handle is angled weirdly, and so are the barrels. It's not necessarily a bad gun, it's just that I wouldn't give it out to someone unless they were collecting Nerf guns or really wanted a light pistol but couldn't make up their mind.
