Blowguns were originally invented to serve as a hunting weapon. They were used to bag small animals and birds, with small stones or hardened clay pellets being used for ammunition. Eventually, most hunters discovered that they could take much larger animals by the use of thin wooden darts that were laced with lethal poisons. The poison was derived from the sap of specially cultivated vines.
The basic model comes with a mouthpiece, rubber ferrule, dart quiver, and 36 darts (12 Stun Darts, 12 Mini Broad Head, 6 Hunting Broad Head, and 6 Bamboo). We also sell a 3-inch thick high-density foam target for safer indoor practice. Large caliber blowguns like our .625 Magnum have an effective range out to 20 yards or more. With practice, a skilled user can hit a two-inch circle at amazing distances, delivering a heavy weight dart. Thatâ€™s a payload easily capable of penetrating a half-inch sheet of plywood. Accuracy and range like this enable an experienced hunter to take small game like doves, quail, squirrels and rabbits in complete silence without danger of over penetration or errant darts striking livestock or humans in the distance.
