    Then we shoot the paper cardboard or plants?

    O.o It would put too much weight on the front, and the dart would not fly, unless you used one of those nails with hardly any head on it.

    This is a good little blowgun, and you should use small nails and sharpen them on a grinder until they are finger prick sharp, thats what i do for my darts but they are large nails instead of small ones, also small nail darts are more accurate and fly a longer distance than tooth pick ones

    Thats why u get small nails then using a bench grinder or something like that, you grind them down so they are very light and that way there stronger, sharper and stay sharper for a longer amount of time than tooth picks.

    i use wire cutters and cut a peice of wire hanger for my darts and a piece of metal 1/2 inch pipe and i can shoot through ply wood and fences
