So the bug-a-salt is pretty awesome

I have the 2.0 with the laser sight and the kung fu grip.  It's pretty choice.  Sounds like 3.0 may build from there but doesn't seem enough have it yet for thorough market research.  

So I should buy your old one and you can upgrade for free?

There's a couple of Amazon Prime Day discounts on these

Not on the 3.0's. Pretty sure you have to get those straight from Bug A Salt.

The deal I posted above is still live and you can get 10% off with code FDAY19

Been wanting one but the dog really enjoys hunting the fuckers. She has learned that barking in their direction stuns them a bit then she goes in for the kill. 

Fun to watch, but Im thinking she could use a wingman.

Just bought three of the 2.0 guns for the birthday kids ( 2 sons and DIL) tomorrow. $39.95 at Academy.

If they want the laser attachment, they can buy one themselves.

With grill season full in effect, just bought this baby out and been having a blast. One of my fav toys. Anyone have some kills this season?

So what's the upgrade of the 3.0 vs. the 2.0? I want one today and only the 1.0 and 2.0 are in stock locally.

3.0 is definitely more powerful, the aim on mine was different from the 2.0 so I was missing everything at first but once you adjust and get used to it it's all good. And the 3.0 doesn't set the safety every time you cock it which is nice

Weird, I just read a review that said the 2.0 was definitely more powerful than the 3.0.

The safety does seem to be the biggest difference.

We played around with the 2.0 and 3.0, shooting our feet and it felt like the 3.0 stung a little more but who knows. Either way the safety thing puts the 3.0 on top imo

Fuck! I want one today!

I guess at least I'll have it for the long 4th weekend.

My 2.0 just shot a huge fly hard enough, it’s guts stuck him to the wall. The auto safety does suck though, but love it either way.

How much beer/alcohol was consumed before this experiment? I need to know for my control group that I'm planning tonight.

They don’t hurt, like someone flicking you really hard. I shot my brother on the back when he was sitting, he retaliated later. As long as it’s not in the face, you’re good.

It's not that bad, bug a salt to the toes from 2 feet away will sting, you'll definitely feel it. The closer you get the more alcohol you will need, I've never done point blank but I'd love to see a video of someone (you and your control group) trying it

I just looked on Amazon to see if anyone asked about the difference between 2.0 and 3.0. This question caught my eye. I’d really like to meet Gayle, because she seems to think she is in a personal conversation with the person asking the question.

I see this shit all the time on Amazon, usually from women.

It's effective against mud daubers, yellow jackets and smaller wasps, aim for the abdomen. I tried once against a red paper wasp and it grabbed the gun, kicked me in the nuts and flew off

So powerful it will blow a fly’s head clean off?

So you gotta ask yourself: did he fire six shots or only five?  In all the excitement I kind of lost track myself.

I love my bug a salt gun. Takes out flies with no problem. Even works well against black widows if you're a pussy like me.

I need to get me one of these. Somewhere in my house is a yellow jacket nest that I have been unable to locate.

Only good for flies. Probably just piss off the wasps.

I get my best product advice from Surly. Just ordered the bug a salt 3.0 from Amazon. Tried and loved Ranch Water based on another thread. And currently contemplating the bidet choices too.

Wont kill the wasps but will render them flyless long enough to kill them with other means.
