I had one that was rated to 6 bar( around 90 psi) and I had it up to 300 psi without problems.Don't worry to much about the ratings on those things.It's more of a warranty thing than it is for safety.

Blowguns are rather safe, dont get them dirt with any debree because that means trouble.

Blowguns can handle a lot more pressure than 45 or 90 PSI, but there is a limit as to what the seal can hold. I still wouldn't feel safe holding one in my hand at 200 PSI. :?
