    I thought before that the sudden jolt of piercing the animal and it stopping suddenly forces the medicine out

    Dan is so funny sometimes. I love the end where inspecting the dart and the liquid goes in his Eye. Gav is more serious film guy but Dan is not only stunt guy but really entertaining when he describes his experice, idea or story telling with what ever they are using that day for Slow Mo.

    Idea. Police officers should only be equipped with very very very powerful tranquilizers as a last resort.

    HOW is the piston pushed forward? A reverse vacuum? look close and see it has a special mechanism at the piston? Anyone know?

      @ThyBountyHunter That explains it pretty well. Thanks for the reply. (A reverse vaccum !) A pressurised container! that is the dyslexic part of my brain.

      Between the two sections (where the air is stored and where the medicine is stored) there is a connection for air to travel. As there is a plug on the needle nothing can come out. So when you fill the top with air, the return valve makes it impossible for air to escape so now you created a pressurized container. It is pushing on the return valve as well as the plunger that would push the medicine but at the end is plugged it can't do that. Once the rubber is pushed away on the needle the pressure pushes the medicine out the hole in the needle.
