Nerf Sharp Shot Review
The latest in a long line of single fire Nerf blasters, the Sharp Shot is a good secondary weapon that may become the primary go-to the pistol in some Nerfer’s arsenals.
The first thing you’ll notice when you take the Sharp Shot out of the box is that this blaster feels really sturdy. I have pretty big hands, and it was still very comfortable to hold. I also gave the Sharp Shot to my daughter to use for a while (my young test subject), and she said it was comfortable as well. I don’t know what kind of wizardry Nerf is up to, but seriously, keep it up — the quality of these 2011 guns is impeccable so far.
It’s not often that I’ll mention a belt clip in a review, but the one that comes with the Sharp Shot is actually pretty cool. In the past, removing your Nerf blaster from your belt has almost always been pretty awkward. However, this clip is designed in such a way that all you have to do is pull on the blaster and it pops right off. Whether you decide to use the clip is up to you, but it’s a pretty cool design regardless.
Out of the box, the Sharp Shot shoots about 20-25 feet, which is pretty good for a single shot blaster. Younger kids will be happy with it how it is, and modders can make some simple adjustments to the air restrictor to easily increase the range to 40 feet or more.
The Sharp Shot has storage for four darts: one in the barrel, and three in the reserve slots in the front.
At a retail price of $7.99, the Nerf Sharp Shot is an incredible value for the money. I’d wholeheartedly recommend it to Nerf fans of all ages.
