Fun with a blaster, ugh-2011 A&G Discounted Blaster

I'm not blogging about Star Wars today. Instead, I'm blogging about a subject on which I've touched before-blasters.  I've had a few out of this world experiences but most of them have been junk.  This one actually comes courtesy of a Christmas gift from a co worker.  He asked me what I do for fun and I told him I play with cardboard lol.  He must have known what I meant.

The good news...I got a hit

  1. Interesting, I thought those code "key cards" were only in hobby boxes.

  2. Looks to me like you need to make sure your new cam is set to "macro" mode.
