Nerf guns are the bane of my existence. Every time I see one in a store, I can’t help but think about the pain and suffering they’ve caused me. I’m never buying a Nerf gun again!
I can remember the first time I was introduced to Nerf guns. I was at a friend’s house and they had a whole collection of them. I was fascinated by the different types of guns and the cool accessories. I begged my parents to buy me one and they finally caved. I was so excited to get my first Nerf gun.
I don’t even remember what type of gun it was, but I do remember that it was pink and had a little bow on it. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I would run around the house shooting my little sister and brother with it. They would cry and beg for me to stop, but I just couldn’t help myself. I was addicted to the power I felt when I had a Nerf gun in my hand.
Eventually, my parents got tired of me shooting my siblings and they took away my Nerf gun. I was devastated. I begged and pleaded with them to let me keep it, but they were firm. I didn’t understand why they were being so mean. I thought they were just being overprotective.
It wasn’t until years later that I realized the true danger of Nerf guns. I was at a friend’s house and we were playing with her brother’s Nerf gun collection. We were having a blast shooting each other and running around like maniacs.
Then, one of the guns misfired and the dart hit me in the eye. I was in so much pain and I could feel my eye swelling up immediately. I started to cry and my friend’s brother ran to get their mom.
She took me to the hospital where they did an MRI and found that the dart had punctured my eye and caused some serious damage. I was lucky that I didn’t lose my eye, but I was left with some permanent vision damage.
Ever since that incident, I’ve been terrified of Nerf guns. I can’t even look at them without feeling a wave of panic. I’m never buying a Nerf gun again and I would urge everyone else to stay away from them as well. They may seem harmless, but they can cause some serious damage.
