Knex guns aren't so bad, give them a chance! (non knexers only) Answered
This is directed at non-knexers, don't bother reading it if you're already a knexer.
So I've been noticing more knex gun hate comments from other non knexers. Why? It's like us hating on hacking/modding/making/whatever it is you non knexers do. It's no different. If you want to complain about the number of knex guns out there, why not take a look at the number of hacks/mods/how to builds out there? Like I said, it's no different.
Give knex guns a chance, I sure did, and I'm better off now than I would be without the knex guns. It's helped me be more creative, it's helped me gain more rep at school (Some guys at school found my Youtube account, and they love the guns, they think it's beast mode, especially the TR vid, since then, my account has spread like a rash).
Personally, I think the reasons why knex guns are so popular here is because it's fun building and shooting them. I consider building a gun to be half the fun, shooting it in a knex war or something is part 2, and I find something like this even more fun than say, airsoft or nerf, because of what I mentioned a few words ago.
I find it funny that most of the people preaching out against knex guns haven't tried to build or use one in any way. That's like me saying that a certain product is bad without me trying it or anything similar to it.
I'm not saying this to flame/critisice/hate on or whatever, I'm saying this to promote a hobby I enjoy, I'm sure you all can relate to that, right?
