Bug-a-Salt

Came accross this bug gun today on the net. Anybody try one? Looks to me like it might be the new must-have for the campsite.

The ad video on the site is hilarious!

Got one for Christmas as a gag gift. I don't see this thing taking off as a must have. Novel, but that's it.

Thanks. The must have comment was a little tongue and cheek. Aside from a roll of tp not much actually falls into the must have category.

Does it actually work? We were thinking it might be a fun gift for the father-in-law. He's one of those guys that has everything.

Here's one we've been using for years that actually works. http://www.amazon.com/Martin-Paul-10...ATSZMKCVQNXCYF

Both of my brothers in law and I have them. We have fun with them, and they are very well made. Takes one shot to knock a wasp down, then you have to finish them off, but flies usually succumb in one well placed shot.
The salt compartment lasts a pretty long time.
One of the BILs is a machinist so always looks to improve things. He put a small screw in to keep the safety lever back for faster firing.

Buy an electric bug swatter.....Harbour Freight had them for $3 or $4. Bought them for all of our camping friends a bunch of years ago. They work well, fun to play with and only use 2 d cell batteries.

Maybe you were using too fine a salt... they say regular table salt works best

I'd like to have one. I have the electric fly swatter thing with the safety net guard thing removed to allow for wasps and dirt dobbers. Could only get small bugs with the smaller net on. Works well and pretty fun.
