This is war! 

Well, not really. This was a Nerf battle on the Dallas Cowboys' field in Arlington. But given the protective eyewear, the helmets and the holsters, it sure seemed like war, if it weren't for the techno music and flimsy bullets. 

Take a look inside Jared's Epic Nerf Battle 2 on Saturday, April 29, 2017:

The name behind Jared's Epic Nerf Battle 2 is Jared Guynes, the same guy who brought Vanilla Ice and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Dallas. At the O.G. Jared's Epic Nerf Battle in 2016, its 2,289 participants earned a Guinness World Record for "largest toy pistol fight." (Guinness doesn't use brand names. "But toy pistol obviously means Nerf," Guynes says.)

He believes 3,000 people showed up to the Nerf Battle at AT&T Stadium on April 29.

And although the event sounds perfect for kids -- and it was -- plenty of adult-aged Nerf enthusiasts showed up, too.

Even Chewbacca Mom Candace Payne was there.
