I’ve always wanted to play paintball, but was a little bit too afraid of being left with welts and discolored skin from the paint. Squirt guns were always the better route, but it just got old after a little while. Finding the Xploderz guns that look very similar to the Nerf product line was a very pleasant surprise.
These guns fire a special type of non-toxic ammo that is a super absorbent polymer which is made up of acrylic acid, sodium hydroxide, coloring, and water. They need to be soaked in water for about four hours before being used, but they are safe to eat (though it’s not recommended), and can be disposed of in any field or garden as their materials were originally designed to help crops absorb and store moisture. These pellets can be fired up to 85 feet, and will be a lot less painful that paintballs. There are two models; the XRanger 2000 and the XStormer 1000 which will cost $39.99 and $29.99 respectively. If you’re looking to buy more ammo, it will cost about $6 for 500 shots.
