|What's in the case today? Ok..it doesn't actually FIT in the case..|
|In its full glory. So long.. it takes up the whole photo frame.|

The Longshot also features a foldable (attached) bipod that could allow the user with more stability against flat surfaces. These days the box includes the Longshot, the secondary front blaster barrel attachment, 2 clips, 12 streamlined darts, and detachable scope that could be attached to the blaster via the tactical rails. (As always, the scope offered no magnification and was pretty much just for show more than anything else- like most tactical rail accessories!)

|In pieces. Sorta like Voltron.|
|Longshot on its own. Oh yes. It's got cred in spades.|
Ironically, for a blaster that has cult status and is loved by so many Nerfers, it's apparently been discontinued, much to the outcry of many. That being said, it's actually readily available ALL over Australia in most toy stores (I told you we get things late here!) so if it's where you wanna be, definitely snap them up while you still can. Between 35 and 70 dollars depending on sale time.
From my take, it’s bulky and uncomfortable to hold. I don’t like the sound it makes when it fires, and it’s never excited me compared to other Nerf blasters out there. I have no doubt it’s an incredible piece of hardware and am glad I have one.. but it’s not my favourite.
|Longshot with a Recon barrel. mmm.. nahh.|
