Hello everyone. Watched Charles Bronson in a movie, (the mechanic?), make a blowgun out of a table lamp internals. I built my first blowgun after watching that movie, probably around 1980, in fact I still use it. Constructed from a metal broomstick handle, slightly under 1/2" I.D. Make my darts from heavy brown paper grocery bags and aluminum nails, or old bicycle spokes. I am glad I found this forum, I know I'm gonna like it here.
