Thanks to Awesomely Nerf and one of his fans, we have some interesting news about the FireStrike design. That little tab on the bottom of the handle actually has a purpose. It was originally designed to help prime another FireStrike in your opposite hand. A few moments later someone mentioned design similarities on the StrongArm as well. It appears that these blasters were designed to be dual-wielded from the start.
Now, I’m not sure about the FireStrikes, but after borrowing a second StrongArm for a moment, I must say; dual-wielding StrongArms is pretty sick. You get two extra rounds before reloading compared to the HammerShot and/or Sweet Revenge’s version of two-blaster mojo. If you have the opportunity, you should definitely try any of these options out (including a StrongArm/FireStrike combo,) and see how well they work for you. You may be pleasantly surprised.
Heck, this new info even makes this video make more sense. 😉
