NOTICE: On Dec. 30, 2010, My competitor (Steve, the Jartsman from Oregon) and I (Steve, the Lawn Dart Parts guy from Missouri) were paid a visit by Uncle Sam (the men in black concept is true!) and advised (pressured) by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) to stop promoting the selling of lawn darts and associated parts via this site and to stop selling parts via what used to be the Lawn Dart Parts website. We have complied with their request and I shut down my website Lawn Dart Parts and he his website, Jarts-LawnDarts. A pending lawsuit against us from the US Government was just not worth it.
As an extra step, I have also removed the contents of this lawn darts forum from this website (I didn't want to push any buttons, since my pockets aren't that deep). Per their advice, I would recommend that any and all parts and sets be destroyed. Selling assembled sets AND parts are both illegal and prohibited by the US and Canadian governments. If you are thinking about selling them, even if just parts, then don't do it. They WILL come knock at your door too.
Details on the U.S. ban can be found here:
With that said and moving on with my life, feel free to browse my other websites. This site that you are currently on is www.TossingGames.com and is considered the worlds largest tossing games forum.
After the shut down of the Lawn Dart Parts website, I had to revert to my other lawn game passion. I still sell some of the highest quality Cornhole game products in the country via www.STLCornhole.com and am considered one of the top players in the St. Louis area.
My newest project after the demise of Lawn Dart Parts is www.CornholeCarryCases.com.
Please don't email me regarding lawn dart parts. I don't sell them any longer and my complete stock has been destroyed (Seriously, cut up into little bitty piece while Uncle Sam watched over a 2 hour span ). I probably still average 3 emails per month from people begging for parts or where they can find them. I can almost guarantee that at least one is Uncle Sam undercover to see if I will sell (nope!). I can't even recommend places to buy them, so please don't ask. I had to move on.
At least the world is a much safer place now than before.
ONCE AGAIN, REMEMBER, if you are thinking about selling or buying Jarts (Lawn Darts), then DON'T DO IT!!!! They are 100% illegal and the CPSC won't hesitate to get you. The government is watching. I can attest to that.
