This forum is exclusively reserved for the discussion of matters DIRECTLY related to competitive target shooting.
If, after reading this post in it's entirety, you have ANY doubts concerning the suitability of your post, please post in one of the other categories.

Guys, it's not 'my style' to try to write a full set of 'rules' to cover any possible situation. You're all intelligent, and literate, enough to understand that the purpose of this section of the forum is to provide a place free from any discussion, promotion or even mention of the use of the blowgun for anything other than target sport competition.
Equally, there is to be no 'bashing' whatsoever of those who choose to use blowguns for their 'traditional' purposes.
There are three very good reasons for this new category....
The two principle facets of blowpiping are hunting & target shooting. Up until now, we "targetmen" have had to share the 'General' category, which currently contains five times as many postings as any other, whilst the Hunters have had their own since the beginning. It's only right & fair that Target Shooting now establishes it's own unique & special 'place' here too.
Subjects for welcome discussion here include:-
Hosting competition events & forming/running target shooting clubs & National/regional Associations
Commercial & modded/self-made equipment specifically for target shooting. Design, construction & performance testing of:-
-pipes & accessories
-darts; cones, shafts & tips
-quivers & holders
-targets & scorecards
Techniques & disciplines for better marksmanship
Personal observations about practice/competition performances/happenings
Proposed rules/rankings/titles/classes revisions & modifications
The promotion & expansion of the sport in established & 'virgin' territories, and it's re-establishment in places where it has been made illegal.
It's in all our interests, at the end of the day.
