Hey, I have to respond to guesses, and if they're correct, the mystery is solved. I can't ignore someone that figures it out for a week while other people guess.

Just wait 24 hours and then announce who is correct.

Definitely not a week but enough time for all time zones.

2. A blowgun fires using only air from the shooter's mouth, which is why Matt held his breath before he fired.


that clue i obsolete, holding your breath is extremely important if you are shooting something like a sniper rifel to avoid gun sway.

you didnt think of that, but i just did

It's still all the more relevant for a gun that uses air as its propulsion method.

Yay One more step to Sherlockdom. More soon mate.

Actually, I did think of that. In fact, it's one of the most vital clues in the mystery. The immediate assumption is that holding your breath relates to steadying a firearm. In this case, it was to launch a dart from a blowgun. It's a clue that you probably didn't even catch, not because it was obsolete, but because it was subtle.
