EDIT: Here's the demo video, trying to shoot 50' flat with a variety of darts.
So, I was at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair (ChiTag)a couple of weeks ago working, and at some point during the show, I was struck by a Dart Tag dart. Now last year, the only shooting toys I had seen were Vapor blasters, so I was a little confused. Normally, ChiTag does not have a lot of shooting toys, instead having lots of board games, remote control cars, and things you can ride or drive. I was a little confused.
Looking around the show floor, I found a vendor called "Bumpa's Blowguns' and solved the mystery. They were selling, well, blowguns! Let the pictures commence! I also have a demo video, but while I wait for it to process, here you go :
