I watched a review on youtube about this product and how you can shoot your own hand without injury. However, I wouldn't recommend it - it stings quite a bit. This weapon has enough power to kill a fly, and that's for sure.
It also has great range for a 1-pump exterminator. I bagged a 2 pointer from at least 5 feet the other day. My kill count is only about 25, but I could easily devote a few hours to the great hunt. The only downside, obviously, is using it indoors. Eventually, no matter how bad you don't want it to happen, you will notice salt accumulating all over your window sills. A minor caveat.
I actually purchased this for my Dad for the upcoming Father's Day, but one day just decided I had to try it on a pesky lugger who was lazily whirling around my kitchen. After this churlish brute's inevitable demise, I kept the Bug-A-Salt for myself, and ordered another one for my Dad for Father's Day. This is quite possibly one of the greatest contraptions known to man. My only regret is not thinking of inventing it first.
I bought mine [version 1] in June of 2014, and it worked fine for a while, and broke shortly after my second salt filling. I've just taken it apart (as the 30 day warranty is over) and I've found that a plastic gear inside has broken, rendering the unit totally useless--see photos where I've circled the broken gears and the piece that fell off. These gears are involved when I cock the gun, and now when I cock it makes a loud grinding noise but doesn't fire; then I can't cock it again. There's a rattling noise when I shake the unit and I've found that's the little pieces of the gear.
A waste of $50 for a few dozen salt shots.
Maybe the 2nd version solves the problem but it's not worth another $50 to me to find out and the description for the 2nd version doesn't address the issue. But the design using plastic for a critical high torque piece is a design fault in my opinion.
Note that my comments are for the first "original" version [version 1] of the product. But you'll note that the description of the "improvements" don't address this fault, and others have also reported this issue. I urge you to be a careful buyer and read the reviews, especially the negative ones so you can see what you might expect.
If I have any reason to change my review (like, they offer to repair or replace my unit or send me a version 2) I will update this review.
21aug2015: I'm following up on Lorenzo's comment today and will update this review again afterwards. [He has offered both a replacement an replacement gears.]
28aug2015: Box on the doorstep; version 2 with gears for version 1 inside; I'm pleased and have upped my review because they stand behind their product (and it's a darn neat product!). Although I'm happy again, any flies that decide to visit won't be happy. (But word must have gotten out on the fly internet because there aren't any flies here now!) I have seen that the version 2 addresses the gear stripping problem with version 1. So if you're going to buy one of these then you'll want to make sure it comes from Skell, Inc and that it is a version 2.
Personally, I could do without the safety lock mechanism... but I understand why they have it in the design. The thumb-operated safety switch must be flipped after every charging pump, before the trigger can be pulled. I'd still give this 5/5 because what I see as a minor inconvenience may to some be a necessary safety feature.
