Ready for a long story Ok here goes.
I've been busy lately, not much time spent blowgun-ning. Anyway today I felt like shooting my blowgun, made 3 naildarts and peeped into my yard. I saw a couple of sparrows in a nearby tree less than 20feet away. Reasonable distance for an accurate shot I thought. I slowly opened the window, careful not to spook them. Of the three sparrows that were perched on the tree only one presented a clear shot, the rest were either blocked by leaves or twigs. I rested my .625 aluminum blowgun on the window sill, loaded a naildart and took careful aim at the unknowing sparrow. My heart raced as I caught a little buck fever, as I hadn't shot pest for quite some time. Took in a deep breath and... Phw...pt, before I knew it I had shot a little too hard throwing my aim off a bit. The dart slammed into the rump of the sparrow on the first shot, it dropped to the ground fluttering around (not the best of shots). I quickly rushed downstairs and unlocked the kitchen door racing out the yard to finish it off. By the time I got to it it was dead, apparently died of blood loss. I shot it so hard that the dart tore a gaping hole in the birds rump killing it.
[Man gotta love the rush, even on small pest. They are pesky birds btw, there are tons of them everywhere in the city. They make nest and roost in your house and crap in between your widows. My parents had to put up netting and plastic sheets to deter them from nesting, yet they entered the roof. They thrive, compete and drive away other song birds. No one controls them, as there are no air-rifles in my country so the house sparrow population is way up, there are literally tons of them everywhere you go. So, no I will not show mercy to pest.]
