Best blowpipe

A blowgun is a weapon that is primarily used by indigenous peoples for hunting. It is used as a low-noise killing or stunning instrument and is also used in open combat. The traditional blowpipe usually consists of the pipe about 3 meters long and this pipe is made of bamboo, wood or similar materials of nature. The projectiles for the blowpipe are usually clay balls or arrows, which are blown. The production of the blowpipes works in general in two ways and so either an existing pipe is used for example made of bamboo or two lists are joined, which were provided with a groove previously lengthwise. In one end of the pipe, the bullet is inserted by the shooter, the mouth is placed at the end and then blown firmly into the pipe. There are different ways in which high pressure can be built up. There are the lips blowers, which close the tube with the lips before and the lips are then opened. In addition, there are the tongue blowers, which close the tube with the tongue, so that sufficient pressure is built up. With the two open eyes is targeted and the blowpipe is then perceived twice when sighting the target. Just between the two apparent tubes, the target should be located and it should sit somewhat depending on shooter and distance.

The blowpipes are used by many Davak on Borneo for hunting and combat, especially the poison is used by the Upasbaum. Some Indians of South America use of the poison dart frog the skin secretions. Some use Curare from certain Lianen, so that the Blasrohrpfeile coated with it. Even monkeys are hunted in the jungle with the blowpipes. Blowguns are also manufactured by the North American Cherokee and other tribes of the Southeastern Cultural Area. Here, small animals are being hunted like rabbits. Presumably it was a technology import from the Caribbean islands. In many Western countries and in Germany, hunting with a blowgun is not permitted, because in animals, it is not possible to kill them properly. Veterinarians today often use the blowpipe to hit animals with stun darts from a safe distance. Often these are also medicines. From a distance you can treat dangerous animals. Drugs or narcotics from the blowpipe can be used to avoid stress in the animals. Arrows are specially made, which have two chambers compared to the traditional arrows. In the anterior chamber there is the anesthetic and in the posterior chamber pressure can be created with air. If the arrow hits the animal, the drug is injected into the animal by pressure. Incidentally, many people around the world also use the blower tubes as sports equipment. The materials for the modern blowpipes are carbon fiber tubes, aluminum tubes or steel tubes. The tubes can be up to 2 meters long and up to 15 millimeters in diameter. The length can thus vary and it can be adapted to the needs perfectly. For many countries, the official tournament blower must not be longer than 1.21 meters. The choice of tube length and caliber depend on the arrows used and the shooter.
