1. because as much as a hate to admit it... i have a mini fly infestation. I believe it was when we had that week of warm weather, everyone woke up and now it is too cold outside again so they are in my kitchen. it's disgusting.
2. Because it is so much fun to shoot flies. I feel like I am sniping enemies without actually shooting a gun/wearing camo/ hiding in the dirt. it's awesome!
I feel I have become pretty much an expert at "FLYSHOOTER the original BUG GUN" so here is the breakdown:
when you get it it feels like a piece of cheap junk... but it isn't. or if it is then you can't tell. it kills flies, it doesn't break.
it is basically a flat swatter with tube that you put over a spring and hook on the "gun" part and it is attached by a string. you load the swatter on the gun and when you pull the trigger it releases the swatter and you get a few feet of strong accurate swatting.
1.it is a pain to reload. not because it is hard, but because i don't want fly guts on my hands so i have to either hold the back part of the swatter to reload or put it on the ground to reload. it takes all of 1/2 a second, but when you narrowly miss a fly and want a quick follow up shot, that 1/2 second feels like eternity.
2.the string that connects the swatter to the gun gets twisted so you have to let it untwist every so often. like you know how a yoyo string twirls around itself? ya that's what it does. again no biggie but thought it was worth mentioning
3.you have to shoot the fly straight on. If you come in at an angle it pretty much always misses and you have to shoot them when they have landed. though I must say I shot a fly mid air and it was the coolest thing ever. it only worked because he was flying straight at me and was pretty close, but in general - wait till they land and shoot straight at them, not at an angle.
1.it kills flies
3.works faster is smaller and is less gross than fly swatters, fly paper and bug zappers.
seriously even if you only have the occasional fly buzzing around- get this.
in fact even if you don't have a fly buzzing around- get this. before I started mass murdering flies, I spent a good chunk of time shooting dried up flowers, my husbands butt, silverware off my table, and we even contemplated covering it with whipped cream and doing some "smack cam" videos. Now that it has fly guts on it we can't do that anymore but I am totally buying a second one strictly for "non fly" use.
here is a video... I made it goofy on purpose for fun lol
Well, problem is once my 4 year old and I put it together and started playing with it we're totally keeping it for our house. It's fun. But more importantly, it's pretty damn effective.
It's accurate. If you miss, that's on you. Up your game cuz my 4 year old is pretty good.
It doesn't make bugs go splat, which is an awesome bonus. Not bug guts on the walls.
It killed a wasp. YES! Kill those evil things.
The simple mechanics of it leave little room for failure. Not much on it to break, and it's made of a single solid piece of plastic. It's not cheap or flimsy.
The string makes it so when you strike theres no need to go searching for your ammo. Keep comfy with beer in hand and reload for your next kill.
Plus you never run out, no need to refill, and no batteries to replace.
I can reach higher and more awkward locations than with a traditional swatter. My 5'5" self can even kill them off my ceiling.
No pain. Ok, this is more about me, I have an elbow injury with tendonitis and fast movements (like swatting) cause me lots of pain. I can kill mercilessly without risking my own health.
Inexpensive. I actually set out to buy a salt gun but balked at the price. Plus the questionable idea of having salt scattered about my house.
Did I mention it's fun? Just try to resist the urge to shoot your husband in the butt or you may get yelled at. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Con: I need a holster! Walking through the house and I spot a fly I have to go search for where my son hid it from me. I should be able to carry it on my person at all times.
I am not good enough to shoot them out of the sky, so they need to be landed on a hard surface. Unfortunately they bounce off my couch slightly dazed but very alive.
Maybe if my dad is very nice to me I'll get him another one to replace the one I ungave to him.
Great product! Lots of fun!
UPDATE APRIL 2017: The shooter I was using finally broke but it took a couple (?) of years to do so. I immediately replaced it with the same thing. When you first get it you've got to tie the string to two places, but that's the most difficult thing about using this gun.
And also, it's fun to pop the kids right in the side of the head when they're not expecting it.
