I have Lightwave 7.5 and am animating a nerf gun. The darts are parented to the gun. Is there a way to have the darts leave the gun and keep their direction and velosity they had when they left the barrel so they don't change direction as the gun pivots? I would also like to trigger it with cyclist so I can turn it on and off. Please help.

Not sure about Cyclist as I don't use it, but to do the darts themselves I think you want to look into FXLinker. Parent a particle emitter that shoots particles in the manner you like, then use FXLinker to populate the dart geometry where the particles are.

...assuming FXLinker is present in 7.5.
