I have read a bunch of ammo reviews that I think are just plain crazy and want your thoughts.
For small game like rabbits and squirrels:
Some say these are inadequate for hunting and some recommend modifications to add a spear tip.
I say these will kill or incapacitate a large jack rabbit or a squirrel with a head shot and likely disorient and temporarily incapacitate with a solid body shot.
I consider there to be the very best small game ammo without any modification.
Some say this is the ideal dart.
I say this is the most effective killing dart and the worst dart to shoot in an environment where loss of even one dart is a reasonable possibility. I wince at the thought of stepping on a broadhead I may have lost last month or you may have lost this morning or in 2013.
These are cheap and you can outfit a 4' blowgun to carry 72 of these. My bug out blowgun is set up for this with 6 quivers and 8 quiver guards along with a great foam handle.
Again, I would shudder to see a hunter on my land or in an area I frequent carrying these as their ammo of choice. My reasoning is the same as with broadheads. If you are shooting where loss of a dart is essentially impossible then you only need carry 1 of these on an excursion. If I step on one I will pay a heavy price for a bit of increased hunting efficiency.
Bamboo: I can see these as an alternative to stun darts for small game if a spear configuration is required.
We all generally think hunting with blowguns should be more available. Yet, our view of responsible blowgun practices might be a bit skewed toward efficiency at the expense of public safety.
OK flamers... Your turn. Let's make this lively. Open discussion is healthy.
