I suggest a list of some of the abbreviations used here.

Maybe a tab at the top that leads to a quick page that sums up some of the lingo seasoned blowgunners use often in alphabetical order so us rookies can understand posts better, example:

BG: Blowgun

CS: I'm assuming means cold steel??

PM: Personal Message, a message system accessed through individuals profiles that allows users to communicate directly and privately to other users.

Etc.

One dart, please just one, it's all I need.

Awesome thanks! It's nice to have this for the new members that don't know a whole lot about blowguns but want to learn more without having to ask too many questions.

I think the Doctor is referring to the ct where paint balls are advertised - as in "25 ct"...

The "ct" there would be "count" - like "25 ct" would mean there are 25 paint balls in the order....

I think right now it will only be an opinion. Not sure names have been given. 

My opinion would be "balance" or "forward hand" away from you and "breech hand" at the mouthpiece.
