Tonight we had a major scare! My son got a new nerf gun for his bday and was playing with it when it jammed. It had one of those doors on the side that slides to clear a jam well he opened it and stuck his finger in to pull the bullet and the pressure chamber that shoots the bullet locked on half his finger. We tried soap, water, etc. It was so tight on his finger I thought it was going to amputate it. We got pliers and broke the gun enough to get his finger out. He had to ice it in ice water for 20 min before the pain stopped enough for us to evaluate it. Luckily it didn't break it or crush it. I was never more scared for my son than I was tonight!
So moms of kiddos with nerf guns: Please tell them NEVER to try to clear a jam on their own and NEVER stick your finger inside those chambers to clear a bullet. It is so dangerous!!!!
