    i had a 5' one that was storebought. i i shot a lot of cottontails and squirrels with it. they make some little broadhead darts that worked pretty good. they also made a plastic broadhead dart that looked wicked, but didn't work too good except for on birds. blowguns are a lot of fun.

    I GOT INTO THAT SOOOOOOOO SERIOUSLY FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS CAUSE I KNEW HOW TO MAKE POISON FOR DARTS ( NO IM NOT TELLING ANYONE ) AND I TOOK SOME BIG STREETCATS WITH IT AND A DIAMOND BACK FROM 30 FT.....

    I HAD A HUNTING BLIND I MADE IN MY BACK YARD AND I WOULD JUST SIT THERE AND SHOOT " AT" THE PIGEONS IT WOULD SCARE THEM AWAY BUT THEY WOULD FLY AROUND THE HOUSE AND RIGHT BACK ON THE GROUND ( CONSTANT FUN )

    AND THE CATS THAT MY NIEGHBORS OWNED....I HAD A SPECIAL DART FOR THEM......... NOTHING MORE THEN A 1/4 20 HEX HEAD AROUND ( 1 SHOT AND THEY NEVER SET FOOT IN MY YARD AGAIN ) I NEVER MENT TO KILL THEM AND NEVER DID :wink::wink::wink:

    WHERE YOU CAN SHOOT ANYTHING AT A 30FT DISTANCE WITHOUT AIMING


    WHEN YOU GET REALLY GOOD...... SHOOT THE FLAME OUT ON A CANDLE WITHOUT TOUCHING THE WAX.....WHEN YOU MASTER YOUR BLOWGUN GET THE RATS WHEN YOU WALK OUT YOUR DOOR......( SEE EM SHOOT EM ) DONT AIM.... DONT HIDE....(INSTINCTIVE SCOOTING )

    AND TAKE CARE OF THE STREET CATS.... I GOT SCRATCHED BY ONE 3 DAYS AGO AS I WALKED OUT MY BACK DOOR...... I WAS GOING OUT TO CUT SOME OLD CORN COBS( BABY RABITS COULDNT TAKE THEM ) WITH A 9 INCH HUNTING KNIFT AND THAT @#$%&*ER TRYED TO JUMP ON MY NECK BUT I STUCK THAT KNIFE IN HIS THROAT.........IT WAS KNIDA LIKE WHAT YOU SEE ON THE MATRIX MOVIES CAUSE THE CAT WAS HANGING OFF THE GROUND WITH A 9INCH BLADE IN HIS THROAT( HE WAS SITTING ON A LEDGE RIGHT NEXT TO MY DOOR WHEN HE JUMPED )

    HE HAD MINGS( THE HAIRLOSS DISEASE ) AND WAS ALL SLIMY AT THE MOUTH SO I THINK HE HAD RABIES..... HE SCRATCHED THE SHIRT I WAS WEARING BUT THE CLAWS CAUGHT ON IT SO I DIDNT ACTUALLY GET CUT BUT IT STILL SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF ME..... IT WAS THE SAME CAT THAT ATTACKED MY NEIGHBORS DOG AND HAD TO PUTI IT DOWN :angry:


    I WANTED TO HAVE IT STUFFED BUT IT WOLDNT OF MADE A GOOD TROPHY

    aw c'mon corey, ain't nothin wrong with a cat. they're a lil tougher than a cottontail but if ya slow cook em.....:smile2:

    i shoot them at a buddy's place, they use his grandkids's sandbox for a toilet. someone's pet cat, well i won't mess with it at all. if a cat's 100 yards from the barn, though, he ain't doin his job, and gets fired! a good number of them will decimate the quail, dove and pheasant crop for next year. they aren't good for much once they get away from the barn.
