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.
