Hey everybody.  I can almost never resist a new blowgun forum!  I've been shooting blowguns for a long time. 

 

It's great to find kindred spirits who have enough hot air to propel darts and pellets and talk about it too.  :D

 

I'm in Illinois, sorta near Chicago.  I do most of my shooting in the basement, where I've got enough room for a 10m shooting range. 

 

I've got an assortment of blowguns in all the commercially popular calibers and quite a few "non-standard" homemade calibers too.  I enjoy making my own darts, modifying commercial ammo, and I guess most of all I like to make and shoot sabot rounds in all of my blowguns.  I use various types of sabots to launch BBs, steel pellets, tungsten-iron pellets, subcaliber commercial darts (such as a .40 caliber mega spike dart from a .625 bore), special low-drag subcaliber darts, and other items from time to time.

 

I recently had a patent issue on a blowgun sabot system.  If interested, anybody can take a peek at it here:

I'll be gearing up for commercial production during the year.  If Aaron's in agreement, I'd like to add a first-run edition as a prize in the grand opening drawing.

Oh, and I think Sabots are a great idea. I actually brought them up in a previous thread.

Excellent!  Yes, I noticed that you'd created a thread about sabots and heavy darts.  I hope (and bet) there'll be a lot of shooters here who are interested in sabots.

Welcome to the forum, I, and a few other members are into slingshots as well, so providing another means to project our stash of steel balls is ace. LGD

Welcome to the forum.  Looked over your patent.  Are you going to use Kickstarter to help out or start up?
