I just spent a weekend playing with a blowgun I purchased from Amazon. I've been looking at them for a while and I made an impulse buy. After a weekend with it it may have not been my best purchase but for the $15 it cost I'm not that upset.
It is a Predator .40 48" 2 piece that came with 12 wire darts. I've already realized the 2 piece is a bad idea. There is a obvious bend so that can't help accuracy. I've also managed to crack the connector but I've fixed it enough to still have fun. After about an hour the woman is already asking "where's mine?" I don't think I'll have issue procuring funds in the future.
I've scanned the forums a little and already have more than a few ideas. I've looked around my shop today but sadly I haven't found any scrap tubing that would work. I originally thought that making the darts would be a bit of an issue. After reading a little I don't think that will be a problem.
I come from a family of machinists and I build a road race Subarus for fun. I'm pretty handy and have quite a selection of tools. Hopefully I can contribute to the forum soon.
It took too long for me to get into this. I've been looking at blowguns for years but I never took the leap. Silly me.
