Tell me more about the GUNS they were playing with !?!?!?

Unfortunately, they don’t appear to mention the name of the ‘guns’ they are using in this video.  I’m not familiar with foam dart guns, though I would think you should be able to find something similar with a basic google search. 

It's a type of NERF dart gun. There's a wide variety. I Can't remeber the particular model but you'll find it if you serch for NERF dart guns.

This video is awesome AND informative! Thanks B&H photo!
