bug a salt rifle

Rating: 4.4 out of 5

As grown-ass-dudes, I really can’t remember the last time that a product has brought our team this much childlike joy.

We used to keep the doors of the Just Dude Stuff headquarters tightly shut in order to keep out the fruit flies, skeeters, and buzzard hawks that would continuously hover over our fruit bowl, or buzz around our leftover potato salad.

But now we happily leave all of the doors ajar in hopes that some winged vermin would dare show their antennae in our lair, so that we may blast them straight to hell with our Bug-A-Salt 2.0 rifle.


This rifle is shockingly accurate. We have sent many insects to an early demise, and have yet to miss the mark. Whether you are sniping a fly out of thin air, or blasting a spider off the ceiling, you will be surprised at the range and accuracy of the rifle.

What You Should Know

I’ll admit at a $40 price point I was a little reluctant to pull the trigger on this purchase. However, it has provided several hours of entertainment — and actually served a practical function in getting rid of unwanted pests.

I will also warn you that if you are shooting a pest that is on a wall, make sure to give yourself some room, because just like with any other gun, ricochet is a real possibility — and one of my colleagues found out the hard way that salt in your eyes does not feel great.
