What is your preferred method of aiming?
Yup, same here. Seems to be the popular way.I keep both my eyes open so that the end of the barrel looks like two barrels. Then I put the target in between the two "ghost" barrels and shoot. I would have to raise elevation depending on distance. I look at the target when I shoot and not any particular part of the blowgun as I do with slingshots.
That is a pretty good idea. I didnt think sights were allowed? Or is that not considered a sight? Or are they completely allowed?I did the same also but after stalling out just below the gold rank in competitions, I tried a home made sight that eventually took me from twelve bull's eyes out of thirty shots up to eighteen bulls out of thirty at ten meters. It is a simple piece of plastic with a hole that hugs the barrel and then I trim the width so that when I look at the target there is just a small gap between the two "ghost sights" and trim the height until I start hitting in the upper half of the bullseye.
This is how I shot as well until this last week. I read about the two barrel picture and shooting between them at the target and Pow! I can't believe I did not see this sighting picture until now and I like to think I can shoot a BG fairly well. LOL with big slap upside the head!I do instinctive shooting.
