I think the lawn and garden is just the 2.0 with a different time paint scheme

Says it’s got more power but who knows. Lawn and Order edition arrived today. Drinking bait beer now.

Didn't know there was a laser guide for this.  Clicking on amazon.  Laser guide being delivered.  

Speaking of Amazon. Anyone else getting the store drop off as the only option for a free return with prime items?

and yeah. Ordered.

Well shit, I need to look into this then. My 2.0 is a few years old, might need the lawn and garden with laser sight for Christmas

Wish I had known about the Lawn & Order edition before I picked up the 2.0 last week. On the upside, its the camo edition so the little bastards never see it coming.

Watched a video comparing the two. The Lawn and Garden put out about 50% more salt.

Do y'all really have that big of a fly problem?

Do you live in Zimbabwe or near a landfill?

Three dogs. More shit than I can keep up with.

You can never have enough (salt) guns.

Drink a beer or two more and shoot your foot, report back on how it felt

Can confirm is stings. I tested this over the weekend to see how much it hurt before I shot the wife. I found out it hurt less than getting a nut check from an angry woman.

Damn do all of you live near a garbage dump?

Do you even BBQ bro?  Flies, like humans, are on BBQ as fast as they’re on shit

Been fighting myself over buying one of these things, so I just pulled the trigger on it.  It sounds like it would be a blast, and probably better than shooting the neighbors and their cattle with an AR....like I've heard of others doing😎

Was your neighbor Joseph Stalin?

How do these do against yellowjackets? 

Get close and it'll stun the shit out of it.  If you hit the abdomen it's over.  I tried to shoot a huge red paper wasp once and he shrugged it off while I ran back into the house

If my wife got mad for shooting her, I would tell her to stop being so salty. Maybe it's better for my marriage that I don't have one.

i got a 2.0 lawn and garden edition....shooting it empty and feeling the air pressure it feels like a mouse fart.  with salt the thing barely projects 1ft out.  my salt is granulated sea salt and seems a bit finer than standard table salt...maybe that makes a diff but so far this is a waste of money

You got a bad one, contact them and let them know.  They're pretty good about taking care of defects

Bought mine from Chinese 3rd party sellers through Amazon, since I'm outside bugasalts distribution zone.

 

Unquestionably the real thing though...nobody goes into business counterfeiting this stuff.

 

How does yours feel just shooting air?  Is it a pretty good thwack out the barrel?

 

Might open it up and check the innards and seals

It's full of salt right now so not going to check mine but if yours is barely shooting a foot then it's just a bad gun.  It should have a range of 3-5 feet.  2 feet away should either kill or mostly kill a fly

I tried one of those before. It was cool and fun, but left salt everywhere. But maybe I should get one for my moth problem. Flying insect killer doesn't seem to phase them unless you practically drown them in the stuff point blank.

Killed a bee that was harassing me this evening. Yeah, bees are good, but that motherfucker should have been out collecting pollen.

I keep hinting that I want one of these and still have not received one as a gift. Guess I'll have to buy it myself.

Yea if you are counting on a woman to buy that wondeful gadget for you it ain't happening.  I've been cooking on the back porch today so door has been open a lot, waxed 5 inside so far

Sea salt, lite salt, or plain table salt.

Gotta go with plain table salt...flake size gets too big and you get a jam

Iodized or not?

I'm not aware of an iodine deficiency in flies so save your cash, you can get great deals on Soviet era table salt

Man. I’m not a huge fan of the salt remnants all over the place in side but it sure is fun. I have the first one. Think the last and greatest uses less salt. Laser sight sounds good also. Does that work well? Hitting up amazon now.

I just got the 2.0 and the salt is def minimal for inside. But your wife will still notice it somehow.
