Non lethal poison blow darts??? Answered

Non lethal poison blow darts.? I was thinking about making blow darts then the topic struck me, could common natural non lethal poisons or toxins be used in blow darts. This sounds a bit vague, so heres and example: you take poison ivy leaves and either wipe the darts on the leaves or grind up the leaves then rub darts in the mix. Would this work, how effective would this be?. I am not planning on even attempting to try this, this is for informational purposes


I suggest Water Hemlock, it's a strong neurotoxin, but a small enough amount should do the trick.

I need some for self defense

I don't care. I need it to act fast.

too much work. It takes a few seconds to make make a dart. A few minutes to make twenty.

It's your choice - defend yourself safely and legally, or risk killing your target and spending the rest of your life behind bars.

non lethal darts. I need to K.O. them quickly and do it legally.

> There's no such thing as a non-lethal knock-out dart. If you do not know the precise activity of the drug, and the exact weight of your target, you run a massive risk of over-dosing your target and stopping their heart or lungs.

> You do not know if your target is allergic to the drug you are dosing them with, so you are risking them having an anaphylactic episode and dying.

> However safe the drug, if you do not have a license to use the drug in a projectile weapon, then you are breaking the law by shooting them with it. You clearly do not have a licence to shoot people with home-made drugs, or you would not be asking these questions.

> If you are carrying a projectile weapon that you know could injure or incapacitate another person, and you do not have the relevant licences, then you are breaking the law.

> If you are carrying a weapon, and knowingly heading into a situation where you might feel required to use that weapon, then it is not self-defence, there is "malice aforethought", and that changes "self-defense" into offence, which could be taken as anything from assault with a deadly weapon to attempted murder.

There is only one legal way to render another individual unconscious - that is to do it manually (hit them), in self-defence, in a situation where you can show that you had no alternative but to render them unconscious (ie you must be able to demonstrate that your intended victim was intending to render you unconscious or worse). If you carry a weapon, even a stick, with the intent of harming another person, you are breaking the law. If you are carrying an unlicensed projectile weapon for self-defence, you are breaking the law.

I cannot stress this enough - if you follow through with your plan to carry a drugged blow-dart gun, even in "self-defence", at the very least you are breaking the law with enough force to end up behind bars, and at the extreme you could be looking at a murder charge. I don't know your age or location, but that could end up with you facing the death penalty.

If you foresee a situation in whichyou are at risk of an attack, you must either avoid that situation, or alert law enforcement authorities of your fears and let them deal with the situation.

yeah, in that case I'll just whack them in the head hard enough to make them unable to chase without knocking them out or killing them and run.

Tranquilizer darts are the most safe method of non-lethal darting something that exists today! Still wildly dangerous... Don't shoot people with darts... IF you are trying to stun someone, use some other form of non lethal weapon. Stun guns, beanbags, rubber bullets, pepper spray, fire hose, billy club... watch the cops, they've been experimenting for centuries...

I have an idea. If someone attacks you, inject them with alcohol and get them drunk.

great but i was looking for darts that made you fall asleep

not poison but annoying fiberglass dust iches like crazy

Make a blow dart gun as seen in one of the "Mini weapons of mass destruction" books, but let the toothpick soak in very hot hot sauce (May I suggest Dave's Insanity Sauce?) for 3 days+

Go on Wikipedia and type in "Fish Toxins." This might work for you.

skunkbait says:
It's the same ingredient as in (depending on the concentration) pepper spray or hot-sauce.

maybe you could get some REALLY REALLY HOT sauce and rub the dart in it... you might have to make some sort of "cover" to protect the poison... like a mini-sheath or something.. I dunno what to use though...

in hati witch doctors use dried and powdered puffer fish which contain a neurotoxin that makes someone appear dead. The person is then buried in the ground and the witch doctor will dig them up and tell the victim he brought them to life and they r his slave now. The person believes it so much that their mind makes them a zombie. Mind over matter. Anyway the neurotoxin in the puffer fish could be used with a poison dart to cause almost full paralysis. Hope you live near the gulf

I dunno. It would be more of an irritation dart. If I was going for sheer pain, I'd go with stinging nettle or hornet venom. But remember some people are allergic to EVERYTHING. SO even peanut oil or latex dust could KILL them. Your safest bet might be something like capsicum.

Isn't that last thing LETHAL!!! I might be thinking of something else...
