This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Growing up means a lot of things: getting a job, having children and, most importantly, putting away the foolish toys of your youth. Just kidding — you need a Nerf gun, even if you're an adult. Our options pack some serious firepower, as many are battery-operated and can shoot dozens of rounds before needing a reload. We bet your kids will clean their rooms when they see you holding one of these. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 15, 2019:

While this list is geared towards adults, almost every selection is suitable for kids as well. Just be careful, though, as some of the models we included can hurt when they hit you, especially at close range, so test whichever one you buy on yourself before you unload it on your children. Or you could just not shoot your kids with it at all, but we don't recommend that.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
