How Does The Bug-A-Salt Gun Work ?
The gun is a plastic pump air gun that uses the force of pneumatic pressure stored within the air reservoir to expel a perfectly measured amount of table salt. Although the impact of the salt is not harmful to pets or humans, it's deadly to common house flies and other flying insects that get in it's path. It's actually a simple process that brings the concept of a shot gun to scale.
The dispersion pattern of the gun is identical to steel shot being expelled from a traditional shotgun. Most people are ambivalent to being spattered with a half teaspoon of salt, but the tiny salt crystals are perfectly sized to impose deadly force on the house fly.
Easy enough to use, the Gun-A-Salt needs no batteries. Simply load the gun with salt; holding up to 50 shots at a time. Slide back the pump action handle which pops up your sight, signaling the gun is ready to fire. Click off the safety aim and fire!

Black Airzooka Air Gun
I'm always amazed at the different ways we can use the physical sciences to amuse ourselves. back in the 70's I remember something like this, only as I recall it was a blunt megaphone shape and made of metal.
So, the reviews on this toy air gun are interesting to say the least and although I don't think it can be used to kill flies, it would probably be a hoot to shake them up a bit. Anyone for rousting a hornets nest? "Just Kidding"... please don't do that; No really, but if you do let me know how it went : ) .
