WANT TO SHOW OFF YOUR SKILLS?
WANT TO PUSH YOURSELF TO GREATNESS?


If you answered "yes" to the above questions then you came to the right thread.

Object: 5 shots in a 5oz tuna can sized ring (8cm)

Distance options:

6m
8m
10m

Qualifications::

5/5: 5 stars
4/5 4 stars
3/5 3 star
other: try again

Guidelines:

Blowgun: can't be more than 5' long, any bore is acceptable, no laser sights (only source of air is from shooter's respiratory system (lungs) )
Darts; Any dart may be used, but can't be longer than the blowgun.

Caught on tape.

1. Show dartless target
2. Compare ring to can to show the size of ring or measuring device to indicate proper diameter
3. Show measured distance
4. Shooter and target needs to be in frame during shots taken. ( at least the majority of the blowgun in view if space is limited)
5. Show darts all darts in target for dart count, only darts within the ring will count for qualification
6. NO VIDEO EDITS THROUGH STEPS 1-5

Multiple entries for various distances or improvements with in a distance is permitted.

Where do you find 5oz tuna cans? All I could find was 7oz... Is there an equivalent, like the bottom of a tin can?

At a grocery store? MJ said a tostido dip lid is the same, or chicken... 8cm is the ring size.

You better bring your A game, my 7 yr old daughter wants to compete, and you don't want her to put you to shame :p

Nice job on your video too MJ! Looks like you are pretty consistent, just need to move your aim down and to the left.
Yeah and it's funny because I know that and I tell myself to do it but I still don't. And when I really try to correct I end up shooting way down and to the left. I think it will work itself out in time.

Video quality will improve with my next attempt.
Bulls eye will grow before I start working on the fifteen meter badge.
Is this good enough for four in at ten?

edit: the CD is only to show that the target is printed to scale. the circle I'm shooting for is the yellow one, approximately one inch smaller than a tuna can.

Yeah I was going to say that before your edit, that since i knew the scale of your official target, that the darts in the yellow are well with in the tuna can diameter... Good shooting 4/5 is what you qualify for...

Though the qualifier is upto 10m. If you or any one else tries for 15m we will make a badge for it, but any distances past the 10m must be increments of 5. So that's 15, 20, etc. I don't want to have badges for every single meter :)

Good job
