30 meters is quite the distance.
In terms of practice time how easy is it to learn using a blowgun?

Proper deep breathing, a good seal for the mouth, press both sides of the lips to prevent leakage. A lot of people makes these mistakes.

Most people I see on Youtube does shallow breathing, the shoulder raises as they breathe. The proper method is breathe into your belly very slowly. The more volume, the more power.

If you look carefully in my video, the barrel actually gets a recoil and jumps up.

Practice well.

blowgun is a superb tool for small critters
The best hiking stick you can get
very accurate  and easy too
I definitely prefer it over a rubber slingshot

I discoverd that you can use the amadou from bracket fungi and the other parts for making traditional blowgun  dart cones
The material  is a little similar to cork. But it does require fine carving skills, the cone shape is essential.
I am glad I discovered this myself because this fungi are very abundant here while thistle is very seasonal
