How to make a Blowgun and Darts with household items

This is a very simple and yet powerful little blowgun that you can design and make using items found at home.  It can pop balloons and pierce an apple from a short distance away. The darts are reusable and will last many shots if you take care of them.

Blowguns have been around for thousands of years and are still used in some areas of the world. Some of the larger versions have been known to kill rabbits and other similar game. Some native cultures also used natural poisons found in their environment to take down even larger animals.

Be very careful with this toy, it can be very dangerous, so please do not shoot at anyone or yourself.
