I currently have two, a Cold Steel big bore and a 50 caliber one by Extreme Precision.
Do you make your own darts or just buy them ? Like most folks I assume you use your blowgun for fun shooting and not much hunting. If I was able to have one, I would probably use it for plinking and target shooting >>> maybe use clay balls for pesty Starlings, but that is about it !I currently have two, a Cold Steel big bore and a 50 caliber one by Extreme Precision.
'Suburban Hell" lol, lol.Ive made some for my big bore, bit my 50 caliber one yet. I live in suburban hell, so I use them for plinking.
Great place to visit ..... the laws are just to horrible to live here if you absolutely don't have to. This is one very, very expensive state to live in, unless you are out in the country, away from the big cities !I enjoy visiting Cali, it wouldn't live there.
Great response , said I was not going to post much and then folks started to post all of a sudden ;- )My pride and joy that never gets shot (so far) is an ironwood antique imported from Borneo almost fifty years ago by a guy who was helping with the construction of water treatment plants. Just over six feet long and about a .38 caliber with an iron spear lashed to the muzzle.
I also have about a dozen commercial barrels including a five foot Cold Steel Magnum and four foot Pro with the extra wall thickness, three or four Close Tolerance four foot fifties and two three foot Close Tolerance fifty cals. Two regular four foot forties, one four foot Tufram forty caliber and a couple three foot forties.
My home made and customs include a lot of Online Metals tubes including a four foot stainless stick with an I.D. around.395" and a six foot aluminum tube with an I.D. of .555. Sadly, I have yet to make a dart for the .555 but I have shot a few close fits through it and I suspect it will be a favorite for mid-range pest control. I also have about six .64 caliber Macklanburg-Dunkin aluminum tubes in four and six foot lengths and about five rivercane blowguns I picked up at the Cherokee National Holiday celebrations in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. I've also got some sticks of EMT but the only one of those I shoot is a fishing rig with a reel and tethered dart.
I have made a few milk jug cones, a lot of paper cones and rolled enough thistle cones that one out of three attempts will get me a usable dart but I've got a long way to go before I'll ever roll a set good enough to seriously compete in Tahlequah. I could buy some there but that defeats the purpose.
