Oh, boy. I can just see you guys rolling your eyes. Good gawd almighty, it's HER again :notfair:

Yeah, but it's your fault. Really, who is gonna pass up a chance to play with a Cold Steel Blowgun. It wasn't on my 2013 list of things to do, but I think I can make an exception :) I'm telling myself it's for a good cause. Actually, I was planning to get around to it eventually, except, and I'm not mentioning any names, somebody bumped up the schedule.

I already have a few things from Cold Steel. Nothing dangerous, of course :sword: Sooo... I knew about their 4' and 5' .625 magnum.

Those little dart thingies looks to be much easier to make than lead balls and slingshots. Just sayin.

About me... I'm new to slingshots. I know... don't know much about blowguns either. Hey, I've been busy. I'm on a mission to cram as much into life as I possibly can, and there's only 24 hours in a day. It's not easy being me. I'll spare you the details of 'me' and maybe put something in the profile. Just as soon as I wake up and figure out what day it is.

Have fun and GOOD LUCK to everybody. I sincerely hope the Pro goes to someone who will really enjoy this new 'toy'. It looks good.

Hi everybody. Thanks so much for the friendly welcome.

I'm totally off-grid for the next week, but when I return, I hope to explore this blowgun stuff lots more. Something for me to talk about--and maybe ask lots and lots of stupid questions. I found a website that has some handsome .40 caliber blowguns, made and assembled in the US, and also claims lifetime guarantees for at least two products. Not sure what that means exactly. The price on blowguns appear to be outrageously inexpensive--which is a good thing! Maybe someone has already reviewed them.

The reason why I'm looking at the .40 calibers is because they ONLY recommend the Cold Steel's Big Bore (which they also sell) "for experienced blowgun users or those familiar with big bore blowguns." Oops for me!

The slingshot forum is giving me a headache :sick: with all of its different types of flatbands, tubes, grips, materials... It wasn't s'pose to be this complicated (and expensive!). I've lost count of everything I don't know but need to buy. What I do know, however, is that I can't never, ever use the word "cute" when describing someone's homemade slingshot. It'll git me eaten by grizzlies. :blink:

The .40 cal is a good way to start. Good for target shooting. Low air volume needed and good speed attainable. Inexpensive and easy to find darts The aluminum tube should last a life time. A good place to start. Don't over think blowguns or slingshots. They're very simple.

Don't worry Thistle. You can make a blowgun in any color you want and decorate it to your hearts content. I don't mind cute. Several of the places selling them have many colors to choose from. I have one in a nice orange.
