Wondering about a Bug Assault Gun

Postby Faster horses » Fri Jun 01, 2018 8:43 pm

Thinking about getting one for Mr. FH. Mostly for fun...does anyone here have one and/or what can you tell me to watch for? Also the best place to buy one.
I can't imagine eating food after flies or bugs been shot....but camping in the mountains, it might be fun to have one. With Father's Day and his birthday (Fourth of July) I've been trying to think of what to get him. (besides socks) :lol:

I don't think he even knows these things exist. :D So he would be pretty surprised.

Thanks in advance.

Or Amazon.
Our son's friends have a couple (apparently they sting).

If you are getting socks, I highly recommend Darn Tuff socks. They are guaranteed for life. If they wear out you send them back and they replace them for free! I have never had a pedicure, but in my mind, when I put them on it is like putting on a foot rub, combined with a pedicure... They are expensive, so I buy mine from Santa Claus and the Father's Day Angels...

Thank you so much. I'll get that one. As long as I don't get shot, I don't care if they sting.

I'll look into the socks too. He found some Cabelus socks he likes. They have to be not too long, not too short, not too thick... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yea, I've got one of those toys. Bug-A-Salt is the maker of mine. I shoot sea salt in mine. Had it for a year or so.

Not necessary. It spreads sort of like a shotgun blast.

You will have to make up an Official looking "Fly hunting license" so he doesn't get in trouble with the Game Warden

I was going to report back--it was a HIT!! in more ways than one!! :D

Our 23 (almost 24) year old grandson was here and he was deadly with it! Grandpa was good with it too! Everyone had a LOT of fun with it! Even killed a couple of millers....I hate millers. Grandson warned us not to try killing wasps with it, because it will just tick them off!!!!!!!!!! :lol:

Mr. FH didn't even know they existed!! So it was a great surprise.

Would I recommend it? YES!!! Great fun!

Thanks for all your help here on ranchers. I told everyone how I came to purchase it. And TexasBred, you were right,
laser sight was not necessary. It spread salt as you said, like a shotgun. One guy who was here for Mr. FH birthday, is bald
and he had to move because they were shooting over him and the salt kept falling on his head. (or so he said.) :lol: :lol: :lol:
