Just like with real guns, Nerf guns can also be classified into categories: full auto and semi-auto, as well as manual firing guns. Nerf is a great game to play among kids and teens due to the jam-packed action that does not hurt others – just plain fun and excitement on aiming at your targets.
The problem with different Nerf gun categories is that some of them are not meant for a certain skill level or situation. For instance, full auto can be great for beginners while semi-auto and manual ones are the best for higher skilled kids and teens.
