Looks like he has them being made and is taking orders now.
Would sugar work the same? I'd like to give the flies a last good meal.
I'd think sugar or sandblasting sand would work. Maybe use rocksalt for big game like wasps.
Sugar could melt and caramelize. The melting point of sugar is about 300 F. Salt is almost 1500 F. And sand would be rough on the barrel due to the hardness. Salt is softer than the steel barrel.
I think Pop Rocks would cover all bases. Have a Coke filled back-up squirt gun handy for some postmortem hijinks.
Rocksalt loads are not new. I was shot by one as a kid, burned like a motherfucker for two days. this is just micronised.
2 feet distance is sort of lame, and no civilized person would use this indoors. Get an electric fly swatter and a pellet gun.
Does it come with your very own custom made spit bucket?
Yup, Rocksalt loads are very common in Texas as a non-lethal method to teach someone they really don't want to jump that fence any more.
Too bad they only actually work as advertised at nearly point blank range. Salt doesn't have enough mass to really penetrate very much. I'm sure it will scare the piss out of someone, though.
Yeah, you only use rock-salt loads if you're expecting dumb kids who're looking to go cow tipping or something. No reason to kill a kid for being a kid.
My brother and his stupid buddies got pelted with some sort of salt pellets when they were tossing rocks at rail cars back in ye oldern days. He said it hurt like hell.
you probably could load up some of the pellet salt deicer types to get greater range instead of regular rock salt
That deicer shit is a different type of salt, and probably not something safe to leave sitting in someone's direct bloodstream like regular old NaCl.
