If you think toy guns are just for kids this Christmas, think again.

If you're passing through Collins Park on Saturday afternoon and happen to be hit by a small foam bullet, don't be alarmed.

The Riverina Dart Tag club is hosting its Christmas Nerf gun party, and everyone can come along.

Founder Andrew Goldstraw says it's fun, free, and people of all levels of fitness can get in on the action.​

"It's like a real-life video game but using kids' toys, like a painless version of paintball, or, how I tell the older crowd, like a modern day version of Cowboys and Indians," Mr Goldstraw said. 

"I like to encourage parents to come along and get some revenge on their kids - shoot them up!"

While the club has an age limit of 12 and up, Mr Goldstraw says they've even had grandparents in their 70s come along to play.

The club has been running strong for 14 years, and they now meet once a month to let off a little steam with the help of their Nerf blasters.

If you'd like to get in on the fun, the festivities will kick off at 4pm on Saturday in Collins Park.
