When half-length darts are mentioned, people imagine cracked glasses, darts that punch through cardboard, and welts that last for weeks. These old short darts are now thoroughly obsolete - in fact, they are almost universally banned, as their metal weights are dangerous to Nerfers and groundskeepers alike.
