    I used to do this with needles and thread, they were prety accurate and hurt like a B****.

    i used to make darts by bending a fishing hook strait, adding lead weight, and whipping feathers on the back (my dad had a flyfishing table) you could shoot it out of a blowgun, but i liked to use then in my bb pistol

    Nice job, I might do this, and I might make my own board for the darts to be shot at, great job.
