How to make a homemade blowgun and darts | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Many cultures have utilized the blowgun as a tool to capture or stun wildlife or as a weapon to defend their tribes. Blowgun projectiles for these weapons vary from seeds, clay pellets, piano wire, bamboo skewers, wire coat hangers, knitting needles, to darts dipped in poisonous substances. Projectile sizes range from .40 cal to .625 cal in diameter while blowgun lengths typically fall between 3 ½ – 4 ½ feet in length.
