A while ago I read this: http://blowgunforum....?hl=peashooters

So I ordered the BB peashooters: http://www.railrider...eashooters.html

I also bought a bunch of 6mm softair bbs.

 

I get them on the mail yesterday. Me and the kids are having a blast. The diameter is perfect for the 6mm bbs and they shoot very nicely. On the Chrony I got 110 FPS consistently.

 

We have been using empty soda cans as targets. We filled them with different amounts of water so they make different sounds when hit! They are just plain fun! Of course on the website , they give a bunch of other suggestions for targets.

 

Ron at [email protected] runs the site. He is a veteran and a great guy to deal with. Shipping was fast and product came neatly packaged and undamaged. I actually 1 got one freebie of a larger diameter that I am using to shoot 8mm blaster pro ammo.

 

I would encourage you guys to check his site Comet Peashooters .For those of us who have kids, these peashooters are fun and a good way to get them going with blowguns. Also a fun excuse to spend time together! Plus you could take one of these to work and tease a few coworkers/friends.

I bet one could drive a nice long pin through a bb to make an iddy biddy dart..Maybe a bad idea..but I'm full of em..I got the scars to prove it.

Nice! Geo said his wife and daughter are interesting in blowguns. Perhaps this would solve that..?

I have had my 6mm peashooters for a while now.  I like using a 1 inch hole at 10 feet as a target.  The hole is in the side  of a tupperware oval shaped pitcher.  I place some old bath sheets around it and on the floor so I can collect my misses.

This is a great idea! Me and the kids were not very happy when clean up time came earlier today. I will give that idea a try. I am thinking about using a milk jug cut on the front with a target suspended in the center. Just like a mini catchbox.
