I shoot an older Gamo 440 in .177 but when I get another one it won't be a springer. I hunt with mine all the time and no telling how many squirrels and rabbits it has taken but springers have problems PCP guns don't. If you have never shot one of the better guns, not BPS or Walmart level, you would be amazed at what they will do.

I know one guy that is shooting one that is almost $3000 that is not a typo. The Marauder is a sweet gun and is on my short list for what I get next.

A guy I work with told me whne he practiced regular with his blow gun he could spear a fly on the wall, hes not one to be a liar so I'll take his word for it, but would like to se it done tho.
He wasn't from the mountain was he? I have a buddy that could do it.

I don't know how good a nose a squirrels have . Back in the days when I smoked. I watched smoke from my cigarette drift into one that was feeding on the ground and it didn't look like it bothered him.

I had a blowgun when they first got popular back in the 80s.. It was the one they showed the video of guys killing wombats and stuff with. I got good enough I could hit a small plastic saucer from about 20 yards. I never hunted with it but I'm pretty sure it woulda killed a rabbit with a quickness.

back when I was first taking an interest in hunting (early 2010) I made a blowgun and darts. I still have one, in fact. But I did not know all the rules such as method of take, or care, as much as I do now. The first squirrel I ever killed was with a homemade blowgun, homemade dart tipped with X-acto blade, in a hickory tree in my front yard. Won't forget it... wasn't my first blowgun kill either, and don't ask what the first kill was! \:D

When I was in high school I worked at PetSmart. We had starlings that would get inside the building and fly around the place crapping everywhere. Guy I worked with used to be in the Navy and said when you are stuck on a boat for months at a time you get real good at your hobbies. He would shoot them off the rafters all the time... rarely missed. His was made out of a piece of electrical conduit, darts were paper and a picture frame nail. impressive!

mine is also electrical conduit. I have shot a couple of nail darts and they hit hard, go all the way up to the paper cone into drywall.
