i just got my first blowgun it is just a cheap one from cabelas its a 36 inch 40 cal is there a certain dart i would need for rabbits or squirrels?
Do yourself, the rabbits and the squirrels a big favor. Get an even cheaper blowgun at just about any hardware store. A ten foot piece of half inch electrical conduit is less than two dollars. Inside diameter is just a hair smaller than a Cold Steel Magnum. There is a good chance that they will cut it in half for free and you have two five foot big bores that are suitable for hunting rabbits or squirrels. An off-center cut will give you a four foot and six foot and increase the odds of your getting the size tube that best suits your abilities. A six foot conduit is too much pipe for me. A forty caliber is what people are using to give cute animals body piercings that have little more effect than the piercings that we get but raise a lot more eyebrows.
Another way to take this size game without the risk of animals parading the area wearing darts is to use a blunt tipped stun dart. I'd be glad to answer any questions you have about any of these suggestions.
Excellent point . The big bore is the only way to go.
