Blowguns Are A Lot Of Fun
For Kids Of All Ages!
Blowguns have been
around for hundreds of years. They've come a
long way since the days of simply using a
hollowed out piece of river cane and a
bamboo splinter for a dart, but the overall
design really hasn't changed all that much.
Modern blowguns are a
bit more sturdy than the blowguns of days
gone by.... Our blowguns are all made from
aircraft grade aluminum tubing, and the
darts are more sturdy than they used to be,
but one thing hasn't changed...

What's the difference between a 1 piece
blowgun and a 2 piece blowgun?
A 1 piece blowgun is a single seamless tube so
there's no couplings to fumble with. Your 1 piece blowgun is full
length and ready to use at any time.
A 2 piece blowgun is made from two tubes that
fit together with a coupling in the middle. Your 2 piece blowgun
needs to be put together for full length use. On the other hand, it's like having two blowguns in one... a half length blowgun
and a full length blowgun.
Either way, you can't go wrong.

A Brief History Of Blowguns...
Researched and written by our fearless leader, Steve...
In the beginning blowguns were made from bamboo or other hollowed out
sticks of wood. North American Cherokees were known for
making blowguns out of river cane to hunt for rabbits and
other small creatures. As crude as these primitive weapons
were, they were also extremely accurate.
No one knows exactly where blowguns originated; however, it is generally
believed that they appeared simultaneously throughout many
parts of the world. The earliest evidence of blowguns dates
back thousands of years to parts of Africa and Asia.
In the America's,
blowguns have been used for several thousand years by Native
Americans as survival weapons. They were also used as far
back as the year 1500 by the Ninja in Japan, for silent
As a primitive weapon, there were no set dimensions for a blowgun's length
and diameter. However today, most modern blowguns typically
come in two sizes:
The .40 caliber blowgun
measures 3/8" in diameter, and
The .50 caliber blowgun measures 1/2" in diameter.
are based on the "inside" diameter of the blowgun tube.
In recent years, blowguns have seen a resurgence of popularity here
in the US as well as other parts of the world.
used to help maintain wildlife by delivering tranquilizer
darts in complete silence. The animals can then be studied
and released back into the wild.
Many people are
also finding that blowguns can offer quite a challenging sport.
With different darts to choose from such as soft-tip darts,
stun darts, and even paintballs, the blowgun offers a wide
variety of sporting activities.
There are several competition styles of blowgun practiced around the
world. A standardization of competition is being pursued by
the International Fukiyado Association, and has high hopes
of becoming an Olympic event. It is a 10-meter target shoot,
using a standardized barrel caliber and length, and a
standardized dart, as outlined by IFA.
Two other styles are also being pursued to make up the Olympic blowgun
event. The Field Style competition is where the shooter runs
from a starting line to a target lane, shoots, and retrieves
the darts, and then continues to the next station. The
course length varies from 1/4 mile to 1/2 mile or longer, with a number of targets at various heights
and shooting distances.
The final style is the Long Distance target shoot. The target is a circle
that is 24 cm in diameter, and the firing line is 20 meters
away. Each shooter fires three darts, and at least one dart
must stick in the target. All successful shooters move to
the next round, moving back 2 meters each time.
personally don't have any ambition to be the next Olympic
blowgun champion, but out in my own backyard, I'm still the
target-shooting king. (Although, my 10 year old daughter and
8 year old son are
getting pretty good at it.)

Blowguns are still used today by
Amazonian Indians in South America, and by Pygmies in Africa,
for hunting small game.
Although to be effective against larger
animals, blowgun darts require poison. Many tribesmen will rub
the tips of their darts across the back of certain types of
frogs. These fogs have a sticky substance on their skin, which
is some of the most deadly poison on the planet.
Perhaps you’ve even heard the term “poison
dart frog”, well it's for real.
