Weapon Review:
The Nerf® Mad Hornet took over a year to come onto shelves after it was initially advertised.  Most likely, this was caused by the weapon's original design's having a "sting meter" on it to gauge how much the gun was pumped up.  After figuring out that someone could get his eye poked out with this stinger, Hasbro® redesigned the gun.

The weapon is the first to incorporate the use of air pressure to fire ammunition instead of a spring. Also, it is one of the only true semi-automatic micro dart weapons.

However, this weapon suffers from a simple problem: it can’t shoot over twenty-five feet. This makes the gun very ineffective in a Nerf® war. Another problem with the Mad Hornet is that the pumping handle can swing around in a complete circle. This means that it can (and often does) swing up and stop the barrel from firing.

If you're looking for a true semi-automatic Nerf® weapon, buy this gun.  Be aware, however, that the Mad Hornet can't even  fire over 25 feet.
