Hey doc its me, the writer of the blowgun instructable, hey i was looking over my comments and whatnot over the old conversations i had, and i wanted to know how the rat hunting went! i would love to hear stories of my blowgun being put to good use, so if you have the time i would like to hear them sometime! Also, i would like to hear how you have your blowgun set up, i always like to learn from others on how i can improve my own.

Got a 10' copper pipe, cut it into two, 4-6 foot pieces. used "viewfoil" to create "skirts" for hot glued screw (10x3/4) darts. I don't want PETA on my posterior, but NOTHING in the rodent range survives the shock. A local office has a rat problem, I demonstrated a solution, but people were going "Oh yuck, now we've got to get rid of a dead rat." Well, you can a person to knowledge, but you can't make him think!

It's wierd. I took the copper tube 5' approach and nailed two rats at about 30-40'. DOA. I was using the 3/4" screw tip with a viewfoil fin. Use Visio to create cutout patterns. Thin plastic film makes best guidance material, and nested layers of it can carry content, as well.

Of course I'm me, If you think I'm the DH who did the world thing on a string you're right, I'm up in the PNW still. Just ask the feds (DIA) for confirmation. I don't talk to unidentified people at all. No time for BS(ing).
