Home Products Right about now you’re asking yourself, “What is a salt gun and why did I click on this link?” Both good questions and let’s answer the second one first. It’s because a salt gun just sounds interesting. And now let’s answer the first question. The Bug-A-Salt 2.0 Insect Eradication Gun looks somewhat like a sawed-off shotgun. Let me just say right here that nobody is ever going to confuse this with a real gun and actually the one that we have is pink camouflage. And like most toy guns manufactured recently it has a bright orange tip or barrel. So now we know no one can mistake this for real gun and you’re safe having it in your hands.Let’s talk about why you would want this. With a lot of people coming in and out of our house all day we tend to collect flies, which can make life annoying. We never really found a good way to kill the flies- well, at least nothing better than a little towel or flyswatter. But when we were visiting some friends and they took out a Bug-A-Salt 2.0 Insect Eradication Gun, we were really amazed at how well it worked. And the fact that, for the most part, there wasn’t salt all over the place. So here’s how it works: you open the top cover, fill it three-quarters of the way up with table salt, and then you close the cover. Now you pull back the slide like you would on a shotgun and then push it forward back into the starting position. Once you have pumped the gun, the orange rear aiming sight will pop up. This confirms the gun has been pumped and is ready to shoot. At this point, you need to slide the little lever that would be right under your right thumb while you’re holding the trigger. This lever is the safety. Once the safety has been pushed forward all you have to do is pull the trigger to fire the gun.What the Bug-A-Salt Insect Eradication Gun does is shoot salt at the bug or fly. Now every time you fire the gun, it’s not necessarily going to kill the fly. What we found is we do kill the fly more often than we don’t, but even when we don’t we slow the fly down making it easier to take a second shot or use a towel. It’s an entertaining way to deal with pests you don’t want in your house. It sort of makes you feel like Elmer Fud hunting wabbits. I can’t say this is for everybody but what I can tell you is that if this sounds interesting to you, you’ll absolutely get a kick out of it.
