NPR’s Only A Game – Pea Shooting: A Sport For Everyone:

“Probably one of the simplest sports available, participants place the pea shooter (similar to a drinking straw) to their lips and blow as hard as they can, aiming to shoot the pea at a chosen target.”
The Independent Newspaper, London, England.

“It’s more skillful than something like archery because you have inconsistencies with the peas.”
Ian Ashmeade, former World Pea Shooting Champion.
