Breathing is Everything
Preparing to Shoot
To shoot, face the target directly, standing with proper posture. As you inhale, raise the blowgun to mouth level. Support the blowgun with your left hand. Place your right hand near the mouthpiece. Once you have finished inhaling deeply, put the mouthpiece to your lips forming a tight seal with your hand and lips. Be careful not to chip your teeth on the blowgun. Remember that there is no safety device, so don't inhale with the mouthpiece in your mouth! The dart goes in the target, not down your throat!
With both eyes open, focus on the point that you want to hit. Exhale deeply and forcefully, emptying your lungs completely and making sure that you do not move your hands or shoulders as you do. Remain as motionless as possible until the dart hits. This is important because the dart spends quite a bit of time in the blowgun. If you move, so does the dart.
Getting on Target
Above all, don't get frustrated with yourself. Remember hobbies are for fun and relaxation (and spending lots of time and money!). Take pride in the fact that you are shooting a gun and darts that you made. You'll be on target before you know it if you stick with it.
