Nerf retailers in BritainEdit
The number one retailer of Nerf products in Britain is split between Argos and Toy 'R' Us. They both sell around about eleven different Nerf blasters. However, Toys 'R' Us is slightly better, as they stock the Longshot, the Barrel Break and the Element Mission Kit. However, Tesco generally has lower prices. Right now, they have a Spring sale that has lowered outdoor toy prices (Nerf blasters are included) by 25%. This is useful for those that want a good deal or just don't have that much money.
Online retailers such as Amazon, Play.com, ASDA Direct or Tesco Direct generally have a wider range of stock than individual stores. Prices on Amazon and Play can be generally cheaper than most stores, but can flucuate a lot.
To sum it up, Tesco have the best prices, but doesn't stock many blasters. Toys 'R' Us stocks the widest range of blasters, but they're limited by the rarity of their stores.
The Dart Tag Quick 16 is only sold in the USA. It is not available in Britain.

Was it worth it?Edit
Most blasters are worth purchase. However, there are a few that aren't, such as the Element Mission Kit. 30.00 GBP* for a single-fire blaster, two accessories, and some darts? That's a bit too much. The Barrel Break is pushing 25.00 GBP; just like the Element, it is a bit too much for a double-barreled pistol. However, if you order from Amazon, they usually have much lower prices than most stores.
Nerfing in Britain isn't as common as it is in the United States, but it is still popular. Most blasters are worth the money and the amount of wooded areas in Britain means it's easy enough to find a good battle zone. So get out there and remember, it's Nerf or nothin'!
