Easiest thing to do is to open a photobucket account (free) then upload your photos to photobucket.  And then in photo bucket while viewing your photo.....look to the right you will see box called "Links to share this photo" left click on the box that begins with IMG. It will change color to yellow for a second and it will say link copied. Then go back to the message window here on the forum and right click in the body of the message you want to post, your menu will appear - choose paste. Thats it. A link will appear in the body of the message as text and when you preview or post the message the link will actually then appear as a picture within the message.

two tubes only. the top tube is the barrel and the one on the bottom acts as brace.

thanx squirrelslinger. i just realized that my bg is inverted in this pic i attached so the bottom part becomes the top. 

this 5 ft long pvc blowgun does not sag.
let me just correct that. the shorter tube is the brace. though i know its obvious lol.

well I still have my first and only blowgun. It's a 1 metre section of aluminium tubing bought for $3 and a mouthpiece made from some rubber, medical gauze and a drink bottle. It shoots darts hard enough to pierce 1/2in plywood and the whole thing was made for under $5

The darts are made of bamboo, nail or clothes hangers flattened and shaped into broad heads. If I need stun darts, screws are my favourite

Sounds awesome. I would love to see a picture.

ACE Hardware sells 1/2" Aluminum pipe, 6 feet long.  Spring steel wire from Hobby Lobby with a little bit of cotton ball wrapped loosely with very thin thread. (old school but, works well and you can make a dozen darts in two minutes).
