Hey i just wanted to know your input to the question that Higgs Boson, myself, and another one of our friends are all asking. What can be done to make the blowguns better at this point? Yours and ours are practically identical. Even with the best darts we can make, they still only ever shoot accurately at a max 35 feet. What do you think?
