The BugASalt is a plastic shotgun of sorts that expels a pinch of salt a high speed with the aim of killing flies (or other undesirable insects, we suppose). It works. It’s freaking brilliant! The fly is pierced multiple times with tiny sodium chloride pellets, killed instantly. There’s no splatter, no mess like with flyswatters. Only the thrill of the hunt. With an effective range of 3ft. you can stay far away enough that the unsuspecting insects will just wait around blissfully unaware of their impending destruction. If we owned a BugASalt we’d probably leave some food lying around to attract flies and give ourselves something to shoot… and end up emptying our salt reserves all over the floor within the hour, making a mess after all.
It’s $30 on pre-order at IndieGogo. People are understandably excited and the campaign has reached $67,000+ on a $15k goal. Not sure when the shipping date is, though. Still, you should hit the jump for a great video of it in action and for the links.

is this gun approved by peta?….sounds cruel to me…salt in the fly eyes (and they have a bunch!)
Interesting, funny, usefull, innovative. Great find!
I like to shoot PETA with it.
I’d buy this is if it was smaller with more range and made cool sound effects. I need co2 power for cicadas, big spiders and centipedes!
