I keep both my eyes open so that the end of the barrel looks like two barrels. Then I put the target in between the two "ghost" barrels and shoot. I would have to raise elevation depending on distance. I look at the target when I shoot and not any particular part of the blowgun as I do with slingshots.

Yep, basically just point and shoot. I believe I feel it more than I see it, if you know what I mean.

I have never really aimed I guess.. I just shoot and hit my target :D

 

EDIT: I just tried lining up between both barrels and it worked great! Ok yeah, that's how I shoot now..

Yup, same here. Seems to be the popular way.
