I am shooting a CS blowgun with a variety of darts shooting into my slingshot catch box. I normally put a few empty soda boxes behind my target, but I'm looking for something that will more readily stop my darts without damaging my slingshot back stop materials. What is everyone using? I've seen archery blocks being used as well as boxes filled with other boxes.

Depends on the darts you are using. I just tape a target to a cheap dartboard and it works well for the mini broadheads(same concept for the razor broadheads). I usually use my slingshot catch box for the stun darts. If you are using thin wire or skewers, you would need dense foam or an archery mat (they are ruined after 2 or 3 shots into a dartboard)

I use the slingshot back stop . Yes it tears up the T-shirt ts but they can be replaced cheaply . Why not make a separate catch box for the blow gun ? The thrift store has an endless supply of t-shirts. I also like to use an archery foam backstop if I want to see dart sticks . The drawback here is damaging cones with consistent shooting .

Time to get to work on a separate catch box.
