The Gun Gallery
Havok Nerf Launcher
Purchased October 2009
I bought this in preperation for Fulda Gap in Nov. At FG
I never even got to use it. The first time was at Waynes World
and I had issues there - not with the launcher, but with the
the most part I have been keeping this as a seperate module
and carrying a sling with it. As you can see from this "action"
picture to really use the gun effectively, I need to find
a spot to lay down my gear, transfer from main gun to the
launcher and, if it might go several shots, I need to line
up the rounds for quick access. This picture was taken at
Boss Paintball in April 2010, as I was getting more familiar
with the launcher.
It is not just carry the launcher that can be a burden. You
also need to carry all the nerf rockets. As I learned quickly,
if you throw them in pockets they get crushed and don't fly
right. So now I need to caryy a whole row of extra pods with
the rockets. As you can see if the picture, I carry either
3 or 4 large capacity pods (140+ rounds of paint) and then
3 tubes of rockets using the smaller 100 round tubes. It makes
for a big load out.
The next situation will be mounting this launcher to the
Smart Parts SP1 I picked up and seeing how heavy the two of
them are combined. I think the launcher makes a big target
when it is mounted on the gun. So far the best uses of the
laumcher haev been when I have been able to manuever to a
good shooting postion, so keep the gun handy is critical.
