The Bug-a-salt is very well made and is more fun to use.
L. Sheetz
The problem is that, even when really close, it often takes 3-4 shots to completely kill a fly.

I am an avid fisherman in the south Texas area. During the warm months my boat will often load up with flys. These flys are vicious. They look like ordinary house flys but they bite and the bites really hurt. Often they bite me on the ankle (even thru socks). I then grab my hat and swat them which hurts me more than them. They are very fast and usually escape. Last week I received my Bug a Salt and took it fishing. The flys invaded but wern't in the biting mood. No matter...I wanted some revenge for past asaults. So I showed them the business end of my new "Bug Gun". This thing really works and seems solid and built to last! It's like any gun...you have to be able to hit your target. But when you do, they do not escape. Sometimes it's instant death but often he's not a "fly" anymore...just a "walk" or more like a hobble with tattered wings. This is very satisfying. And almost more fun than fishing. But I do wonder what other fishermen will think when they see this mad man running around in his boat, shooting what looks like a nurf gun at unseen enemies, and hooting with pleasure at the results. Priceless!

We had a lot of spiders and flies around the house last summer. My gorgeous wife of 34+ years, did as wives all over the world do when confronted by any crawling bug larger than an ampersand in 8-point font. She screamed bloody murder for Prince Charming (well, at least to her I am, thankfully) to take the proper steps necessary to introduce the offending insect to the infernal regions. And so, with continually rolling eyes I did, whenever bidden, which last summer was rather often.

Then in November I purchased a Bug-A-Salt, and was just spoiling for the thrill of the hunt. We had a Black Widow spider, roughly the size of a half-dollar coin, and who had some time before taken up residence in the chaise longue (that's the way they spell it in France, folks) just outside our back door. Two shots dispatched her (the spider, not my wife), and my bride fawned all over me with an adoration and respect not previously experienced. I could hardly wait for the return of warmer weather for the real bug-blasting (and other activities inspired by feminine gratitude) to begin.

It seems, though, that the insect/arachnid grapevine has been buzzing (har!) with the news of my acquisition. It is now July, and have yet to find a spider anywhere near the place. Last night, however, with children and grandchildren in attendance, I masterfully 86ed a fly who was attempting to share our Pasta Jambalaya. The menfolk observed in deep envy and resentment, while the ladies cheered their (momentarily, at least) conquering Alpha Male. I love the 2nd Amendment.

Gentlemen, wrap your Manhood about you and purchase this fine product. Your social lives will dramatically improve.

It's a fun toy but doesn't hold up well. I probably got 75-100 shots before a gear broke inside of it

I do have one problem with this product, I live in S. FL. and we have palmetto bugs, they are prehistoric creatures that are euphemistically called cockroaches but they don't resemble roaches, more like a rat crossed with a roach. I shot one with the bug-a-salt and he laughed, I shot him 10 more times before he knocked me down and stole my lunch money. I think we need a bigger gun. This one will kill flies, regular roaches and small bugs like a champ but they need to make a bigger, more powerful version.

It worked for about a week and then the pump action broke. I disassembled it and found the gears were stripped.

Although this is a cool idea, it definitively needs some more rework. I can be right on top of the fly and shoot it and it just buzzes of like nothing happened.

I love this thing! It works perfectly, and it turns the annoyance of a fly in the house into an opportunity. I even leave the back door open now, just so more flies will come in.

I admit that when buying this, I was skeptical that it would even fire the salt, let alone with enough accuracy to peg a fly. So when I first tried it out, I was pretty amazed to see how far that this thing could shoot, and with how much power. The closer you are to the victim, the more concentrated the blast will be, but I was able to knock down some pretty huge wasps from the rafters of my garage, from at least 6-8 feet away.

As far as actually killing the insects, I personally haven't had much success. Almost everything that I've shot becomes stunned and falls to the ground, but is still very much alive, and sometimes manages to get up and fly away again. I'm not sure if this means I need to work on my accuracy, or if the gun lacks the power to completely kill a fly, but I've been finishing the job with a tissue after the fly has fallen to the ground. Keep this in mind if you are aiming at something bigger like a wasp...chances are, it'll get back up after it's been hit, and it won't be too happy.

Some minor cons:

The gun is extremely hard to cock. It requires a considerable amount of force to prep the gun for every shot, so this may be an issue for some.

This is probably obvious, but you're going to end up with salt all over the place, especially if you're firing multiple shots. Windowsills, countertops, wherever you're firing...there will be a layer of salt left behind when you're finished.

All in all, this is a decent product. It does what it's supposed to do well, even if it doesn't always deal a fatal blow. Do I think this is worth the steep $40 price tag? Probably not. I got this as a gift for my dad, who hates flies in the house, but I wouldn't have spent the money otherwise. But if $40 seems reasonable for you to turn table salt into a high powered projectile, then I definitely recommend the Bug-A-Salt.
