Dart gun

Dart gun

This goes back a little while ago; I was off in the jungles of Peru back about 200 years ago (it feels like that), but this is really a blow gun and this happens to be the quiver. What happened was I was going through South America from the top to the bottom and back up and I got to Peru and then went down the river that ends up being part of the Amazon, and got into this really small village…they make these [blow guns].

I won’t blow it at anybody…I’ve ruined plants this way, because we’ve used the plant as [a target]…you just take a puff and don’t suck in whatever you do!

This belongs in the Museum of Lost Tribes
