I was thinking that as a forum it might be a good idea to create a "standard" homemade blowgun design that is inexpensive, readily available, and simple to make. I am also needing a new blowgun...
So here's the plan. A couple of days from now I will head down to the local hardware store with $20. The plan is to be able to purchase everything I need for under $20 and be able to build it in a night or two. Hopefully we can then refer new members to the build log if they ask about making their own blowgun.
So some stuff we need to figure out:
BG material. Copper, pvc, ect.
Dart material. Bamboo, wire, nails
Cone material. Duct tape, other?
I'm thinking for simplicity pvc with bamboo darts and duct tape cones is the way to go. But I'm worried people might run into problems with pvc sagging. Ideas?
