An Authoritative Book Concerning the Details of the Blowgun's Construction and Usage
Written By Oliver Krystal, With material from respective blowgunners of the Blowguns Northwest Message Board, whose submission are named.
Preview Release Version 1.5 ( I am requesting help in this edition, requests are highlighted.)
The young man moves slowly and stealthily from the deep woods toward the edge of the clearing. He is short and muscular by today’s standards, and is dressed in a buckskin shirt, leggings, and moccasins. His jet-black hair falls from beneath a turban-like headdress, decorated with a few feathers and shells. In his hands are the long slender cane blowgun called Tugawesti and several needle-sharp wooden darts tufted with Bull Nettle. The darts are called Gitsi. He has prepared himself by singing the hunt song, and shooting one of his darts away. It is a sort of sacrifice to the spirits of the hunt. His black eyes are intently focused on his quarry, a flock of birds feeding on the Service Berries in the low trees by the edge of a stream. They are considered to be a great delicacy by the Cherokee. He makes a low hissing sound with his lips to calm and attract the birds.
The Cherokee are his people. He is of the Bird Clan, known for their prowess with the Tugawesti. He has been preoccupied of late with a pretty young woman of the Blue clan, and the birds will make a nice gift for her mother. Hopefully this will work in his favor when the women of the Blue clan consider his initial request to marry the young woman.
Slowly he loads a dart into the blowgun, and raises it to his lips. Another dart protrudes upward from his gripping fingers a few inches in front of his right eye. It serves as an improvised sight. The young man deliberately relaxes his body, seeking to still himself from within. As in most aspects of his life, this relaxation technique is spiritual in origin. A quick puff of air sends the dart on its deadly mission at nearly 200 feet per second. There is a brief quiet flutter, and one of the birds falls to the ground. The other birds flit around in the trees, but do not fly away. The young man slowly loads another dart. Otherwise he is as still as a statue. Another dart flies, and another, and another. Each time a bird falls. He does not miss. The Bird Clan members are indeed masters of the Tugawesti. When he has enough he gathers the birds, reverently thanking each one in turn for giving him the gift of its life. He then turns toward the village, and the home of the young woman’s mother.
It is a beautiful day in the smoking mountains, the heartland of the Cherokee. The proud young man is full of hope and dreams of the future. He has no way of knowing that within his lifetime, pale strangers will come: Strangers who will change his way of life and that of his people forever. He strolls slowly along, daydreaming of the pretty smiling face of his young woman.
Less than four hundred years later, the thriving city of Asheville North Carolina engulfs the area of the hunt with tall buildings, paved streets, businesses and shops. The stream has long since been diverted, swallowed up by concrete, asphalt, and steel. Pale metropolitan people hurry back and forth, living their contemporary lives. If asked, most would have only a vague notion of what a blowgun is. They will never know how wonderful the birds taste when rubbed with herbs and roasted on a stick. They will never master the subtle skill of the Tugawesti, or care to try. In spite of this, there will be those few who remember. There will be those few who know…
Welcome to Blowgunning! Blowgunning is not a well-known hobby. Now, you know of it as well. The purpose of this book is to provide a very good grounding point for all new blowgunners to start with- so that you could spend money on getting into the hobby and not on literature. Some do paper blow darting as an alternative to air soft (Charles Shapiro). Some hunt rats (Blowgun Joe), while others hunt rabbit and squirrels. There is also a sport version of which you compete for the highest score. Some do all three and more. Although there is a wealth of information about blowguns on the Internet, it may be confusing sorting through it, or getting all of the good links which may not be found at first with a Google search. Index A lists 16 blowgunning sites- read through them (some require Google translator). Although this book contains a wealth of knowledge and is hopefully a very good starting point (as I intended it to be), it doesn't have every thing. I have tried to get a complete listing of the websites that are available on the web. A lot of things are hyperlinked in this book. I did that so that I wouldn't have to copy paste a lot of information that isn't mine or because I could not find a way to integrate that material into the text. I also have various blowgunners from the message board who would be happy to answer you questions. They are: email@example.com- Neon Dog, very interested in helping you with ten-meter competition. They would be happy to help you with any problems you may encounter. Also, feel free to visit the Blowguns NorthWest Message board. You may just find the answer to your problem there. Oh, one thing. This book is to be given to your friends. It is available on the Internet from a myriad of sites, and should not be charged for. Feel free to freely give it away for free..
Please note that this book assumes you have general knowledge of tools and how to use them. If you see a term you do not understand, DON'T GIVE UP! Send an advisor an email and he would be happy to help.

Thunker's disk dart has created a “storm” because of the accuracy that this creates. There's nothing wrong with these styles. dart aerodynamics work differently. Some people use disks to form the ends of their darts. The tail cone. such as the Caveman's cones. aluminum rod. The reason the Broad head isn't in the dart is that I haven't got that far yet. Geezer has stated that multiple cones on the shaft drastically increase accuracy. Normally I would make the dart shaft 12” long. I prefer to roll a paper cone via Charles Shapiro's instructions because they are cheap and easy. And the point. my cones. while others (like Janich) utilize a bead for the “tail cone” of their dart. 1/8” dowel. This is made from bamboo skewers.General Dart Design The entire purpose of a target design is for the dart to be accurate.
