It’s Nerf or nothing.

North Carolina police discovered a real gun disguised as a Nerf gun Wednesday during a drug raid.

Cops in the central North Carolina town of Catawba, about 35 miles north of Charlotte, found the fake foam weapon, which was actually a modified Glock 19, among 20 other real guns, according to a Facebook post from the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office.

Such painted guns are not illegal, but the sheriff’s office called the not-Nerf weapon “concerning to law enforcement.”

Damien Burch, 35, was charged with possession of cocaine, mushrooms and marijuana, police said. He was not hit with any gun charges.

Burch was released from jail later Wednesday on $20,000 unsecured bond.
