Rid your barbecue of flies... with a gun

As shown in the advert below, the Bug-A-Salt is a gun specifically designed to kill flies. As the name suggest, it's ammunition is regular table salt.

And that's not all. Presumably because those winged little b*stards have become familiar with the sight of the original bright yellow gun, there's a new edition. The Camo-Fly is almost certainly the world's first ever camouflaged fly-killing gun. How did humankind survive so long without it?
