Hello all,
I at the moment am in the market for my first blowgun. I will be hunting mice in a house setting. Can I have recommendations on what blowgun and darts would be best to purchase?
Thanks.

A cold steel big bore blowgun with stun darts . This way you won't impale darts into the floors , walls or furniture . Very accurate hard hitting and will kill by way of " blunt force trauma " . For mice this will be effective .

Thank you so much for your reply. I do appreciate you responding very much. I would be looking for a head shot with those of course. They do look deadly.
As for the blowgun. I see the big bore comes in 4 or 5 foot and then there is the professional model with the dame lengths. Which would you suggest?

I would suggest the 5 foot standard in either the one or two piece . More versatile because you have the option of adding a two foot extension . The professional model features a much thicker wall construction . Unnecessary unless you going to use it as a walking stick or club . The standard wall thickness is the way to go . 5 foot length seems perfect .

Super! I'm looking at the midway usa website and I like the 5 foot two piece. Not bad pricing compared to other sites. I will also go with the darts you suggested for blunt force trauma. But since I am making a purchase I think I should invest in another type of hunting dart for outdoor use with mice. Would you go for the razor tip or the mini broad head. The razor tip are more expensive and loak as though they would be very effective...but would the mini broad head (much cheaper) be just as effective?

Thanks so much. I've become very excited about this. When I first began my search and understanding of a blowgun I was ready to walk into my locate walmart and buy the joke of a blowgun they sell. Then I decided to lurk around on the net and I soon realized there is more to it then a simple walmart purchase. Thanks for your help.

Oh yes I will be sure to inform. Hey do you happen to know if something is on backorder from midway USA they charge shipping since the item might under $25. Even though the whole rest of purchase counts for free shipping?

I don't know for sure . They have a customer service number you can call and verify .

I would buy the Cold Steel 5 foot 2 piece. It gives you flexibility, as you said you are in a house, and therefore tight quarters. The stun/skewer dartd should be used in the house and the mini broad heads in the field.
