    What if you made some kind of plunger shooter, but instead of a plungerhead the plunger has a fly swatter head?

    Possibly reinforce the handle of the swatter and use it as a pivoting arm. It would be limited to short range, but would swing with mighty force!

    I had a couple of wasps in my shop the other day. I pulled out my starship and waited for one to land. I got about a foot away from it, pulled back the bands and nailed it with the empty pouch. I got the other one the same way. In consideration of the feelings of the Forum, I will not post pictures of my kills. ;)

    Raptor. ....you inspired me to try a couple things and not with the slingshot but with the ammo to shoot flies. I haven't had the chance to try it out on live game but I will. I need to make the disk washable incase it kills and smears guts all over. I don't think it will smear the fly and will try to make a video of the big game it kills. Max distance is about 60 feet. Not all slingshots will work.

    I use ear plugs to shoot fly's spiders and those stinking carpenter bees at my camper all the time.

    Actually, a double molded pouch and some salt is all you really need.

    I used to do Survey work for my local county, at times we would be stuck waiting out a rainstorm.

    I have killed hundreds of flys with just a #4 rubber band. Grasp one end between thumb and forefinger, draw back, approach slowly and let fly. With some practice you can "splat" them nicely. Or shoot a wing off and watch them spin on the floor.

    Will........I've been shooting it everywhere. Nothing is totally safe but really are. Wife's butt as she walks by....dogs won't go out. Lol shoot the bad guy on tv......countless things to shoot at and it's safe.

    Bigdh2000....thanks it's a blast

    Flipgun.....your right salt works good but my wife doesn't like the salt being shot around.

    Ghosth....I use to do exactly what you just said. Works great!

    I have used several kinds, I just roll them in a ball between my fingers. They fly pretty straight for 20 feet or so.[​IMG]
    My wife just doesn't like seeing these guys on my camper walls.
