Blowgun

Postby Pointman » Tue Jun 04, 2013 6:00 pm

I started making this blowgun based on Dave Canterbury's Common Man Blowgun design and decided to improve on it. Here's what I came up with. The first picture is sideways but you get the idea of the overall length of about 55".

Here's the rest of the pics. It's made of two pieces of 1/2" PVC Sprinkler Riser pipe, the grey, thicker stuff that is threaded on both ends. I used a heat gun to heat up a 6" piece of 3/4" PVC to use as a coupler.

This goes with me everywhere. All I do is take the little sponge rubber dart keeper off and use it as a hiking stick since it is stiffer than regular PVC. Works for a tent pole too. It's all about multi function right?

You took that thing to a whole new level man.
Your not prepared if you can't remember what your carrying and where it is.

Awesome! I like the cammo touch.

Thanks, I just grabbed a small oak leaf and used the silhouette to get the cammo effect. I was surprised how easy it was to do. I did the same thing for my homemade 60lb PVC bow and a few other things as well.
