jesus christ that's way too expensive, check your local autoparts dealer, autodoc, or birner or something the like, it costs 4-5 euros here
I could be wrong but I don't know of any mechanics here using those products.
If it is an imported product it is normal that it costs so much, the products that come from the USA are all too expensive, transport and taxes make everything too expensive.

Never heard of this but I'm definitely getting one. I can turn a pest invasion into Call Of Duty. Only caveat-anyone who has these please don't kill bees, spiders, praying mantises, and a few other beneficial insects. I'll stick to pests like flies, mosquitoes, and cockroaches.

Definitely limited to fly-size insects. Not effective on bees, cockroaches, etc.
I can't imagine why anyone would want to injure a praying mantis... :mad:

Got my grandson trained yesterday; he must have A-Salted 25-30 flies.

I have one and it’s great for killing houseflies. Also salts them and my puppy snatches them up as a treat. 😂

I’ve killed a roach before, but it has to be shot at point blank range and took three shots, the first being from the side to get the abdomen and flipping it over. At the end, the roach was half mush.

So, what if junior takes a wild shot to grandpa's eye, just a lil sting?

The other day a young🥰 fly landed on a wet tissue on my window sill, so i shot it from 1 feet distance (with the V2.0), while it was on the tissue. It is instructive to see that the fly shatters in so many parts one would normally not see:

But doht sh👀t snails/slugs or other animals🐸🐹🦖, the salt grains would penetrate the soft body and make them 💣🤯 from the inside yikes! 😱

Remind me not to go shooting with you :rolleyes:

Just bought another one so I can have one inside & outside :xyxgun:
I got an OD green on the way..
To everyone packing this cool gun, make sure the day glow orange flash suppressor is mounted, and visible, for nervous jumpy cops that might be called to the massacre scene.

i wanted to see close-up what da happenz if you shoot de fly rite in da face. well, the salt crystal slices thru the compound eye (surface) and the leaking and drying juice effs up the eye sight i guess:

after such a head-on hit the fly dies within 620 sec:

another fly had more problems with withstanding the crystal to the eye, she looks like it, no pun intended. her left one got 2 clear dings:

whereas her right one shows what's underneath the compound eye surface:
