If your kid is anything like mine, than you are most likely the main target for Nerf guns! When my son doesn’t have anyone to play with, he thinks it’s hilarious to use me as his main nerf target.
However, he recently received one of those giant Nerf guns that holds 200 bullets and shoots rapid fire. Being shot at point blank range sure does sting!
After being shot a few times, I headed out to the garage to see what I could use as a target for these mega guns.
