Default K-mart sale

i just happened to look thru my paper's K-mart ad to see their summer stuff, and what do i see. "15% off all water guns" so someone go check it out because i don't know of any k-mart near me, or i can't get to it, or i won't have time to go.


Target also has summer items on sale. it says "other selected outdoor toys also on sale" but im not sure if it includes water guns, so someone will have to check it out.

Awesome! I've been thinking of buying two Max-d 3000s, for dual-wielding and stuff. Summer's gonna be awesome!

Specter, thanks for alerting us! Too bad I got my Orca a while back, missed out on the sale...oh well though, not too big a deal. It's probably more effective on expensive water guns like the HydroBlitz, but then again, KMart doesn't stock very many Super Soakers.

The Max-D 3000s are great guns - good power and range for their size. The only problem is that the triggers might eventually require a spring reinforcement. Once again, thanks for sharing!

Panda, Max-D 3000s would probably be easy enough to dual-wield due to their size. Plus, given the fact that they are pressurized reservoir (PR) water guns, with larger pressurized areas than normal air pressure guns, they have little dropoff. Which means you can shoot a good while before having to break the dual-wield setup to pump.

Keep in mind the MD3k's have difficult grips too. They are very small (smaller than the grips on many squirt guns) and using a conventional grip while having to pull the trigger all the way is somewhat difficult. You might have to try to find different ways to hold the gun. Also, their capacity doesn't allow them to last long on the field (when used alone). However, I choose to get them myself because of the price, and the MD2k holds even less water. On second thought, Flash Floods might be better for dual wielding, but are a bit heavy, and the MD3k still makes a good pistol/backup considering how compact it is.

i actually like these Maxd 3k's. i have already configured my grip after using them only once, i can dual weild these easily... i was doing it just around an hour or so ago haha. I like more compact guns, but i will be buying more(bigger ones) in the future.

Yeah, I've been trying to learn how to work around the grips too. So far, I typically adjust my grip so my middle fingers pull the trigger, leaving more room for the fingers. Sometimes I use 2 fingers to pull the trigger.

Well, glad they're working well for you. My friend's hand can't even fit the Tiger Shark's grip well and I could imagine how hard these pistols would be to use for him.

yeah, i do the same with the middle finger on the trigger, laying the pointer along the gun seems to steady it for me. I think they designed these guns for intro to water guns for smaller kids hands, but they are a great sidearm
