The Philippines, being a tropical country, experiences a hot climate. A lot of Filipinos would take a bath more than once a day to keep cool and calm. Sans the quarantine, some would go for a swim, others would settle for an inflatable pool or basin, while some would go crazy over water guns.
Water guns or water pistols are definitely one of the many well-loved toys not only by kids but also by kids-at-heart. This is a backyard game for children but it is more popular now with family camps. With this, we have come up with a buying guide and recommended water guns that will surely satisfy your adrenalin rush!
Water gun fight is surely an exciting and intense game! Buying water guns is not only about choosing aesthetically appealing but also innovative features. Budget is also a consideration so we are including a diverse price range for this article. Get ready as we give you tips in buying water guns.
The stronger the pressure is, the longer the distance the water can reach. This is the best technique in water warfare to protect players from getting near their opponents.
Some high-pressured water guns are cost-efficient because they emit just the right amount of water but can go far. Others would just continuously pull the trigger and the water would gush out non-stop until the pressure goes down.
In online shopping sites, the pressure is usually indicated either on the description "high-pressure” or “pressurized” or in the specifications as “range” expressed in meters or feet. In games like these, it is the gun who takes the pressure while the player can confidently say, “I don’t feel any pressure right now!”
Water gun reservoir or tanks are also an equally important consideration in purchasing water guns. No one wants to ran out of water at the momentum of the water fight then end up to either going to the home base for a refill or losing the game.
Majority of water reservoirs are part of the pistols while others innovated a backpack tank connected to the gun by a hose.
Before, water pistols are made of metals like real guns but for security reasons, the law required that these toys should be made out of plastic. Plastic is less sturdy so they are prone to damage when used frequently.
Among the gun parts, these three must be carefully checked because they are sensitive and frequently used: (1) The trigger is the most frequently used part so check the spring and handle; (2) a good pump leads to better pressure and precision and (3) great nozzles create impactful and precise water blasts especially those with multiple nozzles having ArmaLite or Bazooka effect.
Weight, ease of use and complexity of features would always depend on the age of the users. A gigantic, spectacular, multi-technique pistols may or may not not work for 5-year-old kids - though some children of that age are really good at it!
Choosing favorite colors, though minor as they seem, gives extra pizzazz for both kids and adults. In fact, water guns are brightly-colored as mandated by law so as not to be used for crimes. Overall, physical features of water guns must also be considered vis-à-vis with the players’ understanding and capability.
