Ohh thanks for notifying me craftsmen. I just read your tube material post and was about to order for a buildMacfz,
Be careful. Blowguns are illegal in California. Cold Steel can't even sell blowguns from their California based website, they have to offer them from their Arizona facilities.
Well hopefully that gets resolved soon enough. There are not many places nearby where I'd be able to shoot unnoticed. Not that any type of government authority is constantly present in the wilderness areas, but civilians tend to be wary of any activity besides trail walking and sight seeing. I think my backyard might be just enough for regulation distance practice. I'll be ordering a tube soon : )I'm working with a California State trooper to get the ban reversed. We've found the original law on the books, and who it was sponsored by. That person is no longer serving in the State legislature. He's trying to see who he can work that would be willing to support the reversal, and to contact the original person to get the story behind why it was proposed into a law in the first place (as with any legislative act, there most likely wee favors called in, promises made. Need to unravel that whole bowl of spaghetti. 8-(
Not condoning that you knowingly break the law. You can order tubes. They are not illegal.
Getting caught shooting (depending on the official, their familiarity with the laws, and what mood they're in) ... that can be a different story. If you so choose ... keep it out of street view, on private property, or off into the woods away from prying eyes.
If anything I order comes to me indirectly, it'll be making a stop by your place only craftsman : )Macfz,
A lot of places will not ship blowguns to California - check out their fine print. You may have to ship them to relatives or friends out of state. I know - big hassle! If you're getting some very exotic or super expensive equipment, you can always send them to NaturalFork! (ROFL!) He can do some very intensive quality control checks for you.
