Hello,
Thanks for being there. It's very nice to have you here!
I wonder if you manage to get (and how often) the opportunity to present a more constructed close-up show. For instance, except in lectures, how often will you perform your rubber-dart-pistol routine (or any table routine)?
And, by the way, do you look forward to having such performances or do you prefer strolling venues? (But some the routines you published, as your "dart" or "hofzinser-aces" routines do require some room on a table or even sitting down.)
Many thanks!
Jonathan.

Hi Jonathan,

I really enjoy doing close-up shows, since you are able to do stuff you can't do strolling and it's during these types of situations (trade shows, hospitality suites, etc) that I like to do the dart gun trick...

Thanks,

Chad

Yo Chad,

last month I was at the Castle in the close-up room and I closed my Multiple Selection routine with your dart gun trick... I only missed twice out of 25+ shows... it always got a great reaction...

for me the real secret was learning how to toss up the half deck so they showered down in a spread out pattern... I also got some sticky black stuff used in theatrical production that was better that poster putty...

Danny,

Great, now if I work the Castle and miss three timees....lol...

PS: I always hold the half-deck in 'Charlier Cut' position in my left hand, with my index finger curled underneath, pressed against the face, and then let them spring from my left thumb. They really scatter nicely and, of course you aim for the area in front of the dart gun.

What I did was hold them in my LH and moved my thumb and fingers in opposite directions (like I was doing a 1-handed fan) as I tossed the cards high in the air...

I wait a beat and then as the cascade down I shoot into the middle of the cards...

Hi Chad!

I saw you lecture here in Eugene,OR a few years back. Which notes did the dart gun trick appear in?

Also, its been a while but I remember you opened your lecture with a very clean production/vanish of three coins. Can you elaborate on this effect?

Hi Hart,

Ahh...Eugene, I remember it well! The trick with the toy dart gun is in The Lost Cheesy Notebooks - Volume 2. The coin trick I did is by Troy Hoosier and I found it in the Magic Man Examiner by Chris Kenner, but I don't remember which volume. I think you can find it in Troy's book "DesTROYers" by Joshua Jay. Take care!
