  • Don't want to go to the store? Build this kit yourself with our kit: to make a surprisingly powerful laser assisted blowgun, for under $3.Because of multiple requests for build plans, I spent 3 days putting together a detailed 19 page PDF ( with step-by-step instructions, Fun Facts, Helpful Hints, and loaded with pictures. I'm selling them to help compensate for my time. You can get the Project PDF here if you're interested: :) quick links to a few of the materials I used:[✓] Post-it Notes:[✓] Hot Glue Gun:[✓] Poster Putty:[✓] Camouflage Duct Tape:[✓] #16 Wire Nails:[✓] 1/2” PVC Pipe: to Gerwyn Legg (Worcestershire, UK), Michael Grantham (Lincoln, Nebraska), and Joceline Remi (Victoria, Australia), the 3 winners of 3 blowguns from the laser guided blowgun video. The contest is now closed, but thank you to everyone who participated and shared their projects or my videos with #thekingofrandom!Endcard Links:Rocket Buzz: Balls: X-Bow: What Else I’m Up To:Instagram: Inquiries: For business and sponsorship inquiries please contact us directly: Blowguns should not be pointed at people, animals, or any living thing. Projectiles shot at high velocity may cause deep wounds leading to infection, and/or may cause loss of vision if hit in the eye. They can also break glass and cause damage to property. This project should only be attempted with adequate knowledge, training, and adult supervision. Use caution and common sense. Use of this video content is at your own risk.Music By: Scott & Brendo (“Kitten Air” - Instrumental) Inspired By: My 5 year old son. He pulled a piece of PVC pipe out of the garbage and asked if we could make a project with it. A blowgun was the first idea that came to mind, and quickly snowballed into a really awesome project idea!Project History & More Info:This is an original project idea which came right out of the blue a couple of weeks ago, but is among my favorites already!The blowgun is so simple and cheap to make, anyone can do it, and the best part is it looks completely legit, and can fire with amazing precision.When my 5 year old son pulled a piece of plastic pipe out of the garbage and asked if we could do a project I immediately thought of making a blow dart gun. But to make it safer for indoor use, I tried using paper for ammunition. I rolled up a post-it note, and shoved the tip of a crayon inside to add some weight.When we shot the dart, it flew over 100 feet away at high velocity, making me realize there is a real project here waiting to be developed.I spent the next 5 days evolving different prototypes, and experimenting with different types of homemade ammunition.I let my kids try shooting darts made with nails, but their lungs weren't powerful enough to get the darts to stick into targets, so we use marshmallows instead. The pipe is the perfect width for mini-marshmallows and can still shoot them fast enough to hurt a little, but still safe enough for indoor use.The blowguns can be customized with different color schemes in a way that's so simple it's nearly mind blowing.Many people have asked how to make the precision laser sight. It's just a 2" piece of the same PVC pipe, with 8 screws, as seen in the video. Simply insert the laser, and adjust the screws until the laser is pointing directly at the place where the blowgun hits the target, then make sure the screws are relatively tight so the laser doesn't move. Have fun and good luck!
