BSL for Nerf Hobbists

Recommended Posts

I play with Nerf guns as a hobby. I am part of the Britnerf community. For context, we collect, modify, customise and play with toy blasters which fire foam projectiles, often at regularly organised not for profit events.

We use Nerf branded products along with xshot, home made and increasingly 3d printed blasters. Think of it as a cheaper, less cost intensive alternative to paintball which can be played almost anywhere.

Anyway, as a games organiser, I wanted to get some advice on signs for some of the paraphinalia and terms associated with the hobby.

Any suggestions or discussion is welcome. I just want to take some steps to making the hobby more inclusive.

Brands associated with the hobby:

Nerf, Hasbro, Xshot.

General vocabulary:

Nerf war, Nerf blaster/gun, Nerf dart, eye protection, zombie, base, respawn point. 

There is much more I'd like to know, but I just wanted to put the above out there for a start. 

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    • Hi, I have joined BSL as I am retiring very soon from Special needs teaching. I have used Makaton signing in my classroom for many years but would like to be able to sign to more people. I also think it will be good for stimulating my brain and I have already become very competitive with myself playing the spelling game!!
    • Ive just started to learn how to use BSL and I managed to use fingerspelling to get a message to someone when I wasn't able to speak to them. I am so Glad I started this course I think that it will really help me with my career path in the future.

    • Hi everyone, I was keen to learn BSL as I am on a career break from a job in IT and am very interested in how i can help people with listening difficulties learn / understand how IT may be a great place to work, seek a career. where there are lots of vacancies / opportunities..
    • Hi to all BSL learners, I have decided to learn BSL because as part of my role in healthcare I communicate with a variety of patients and think it will be a good skill to have.  Also my mother and mother-in-law is starting to have problem with their hearing... And I would like to have this skill to help them if they need to learn BSL in the future. 
    • My name is Julia. I am learning BSL because I am losing my hearing.  I have no hearing in my left ear now due to an acoustic neuroma and I have inherited otosclerosis from my mother's side of the family and I now have very little hearing in my right ear.  I also attend a lipreading class. I did start to learn BSL a few years ago but did not persevere! I am restarting my journey with it and must make sure that I practice, practice, practice!!
