Fly gun

Inspired by the linked idea.

Big game hunting is increasingly frowned upon these days, especially indoors.

MaxCo. is therefore proud to fill a much-needed gap in the recreational killing market with the introduction of the Fly Gun. The satisfyingly heavy Fly Gun accepts a magazine of 50-100 fly darts, each of which is simply a tiny pointy metal pin with a very small stabilizing tail made of engineering-grade lint.

The spring-powered fly gun is lethal to insects up to 15 feet away, but accuracy over more than a couple of metres is limited - an excellent excuse to practice your stalking skills.

Not suitable for children, unless you can hit their jugular.

       Some people think baiting is unsportsmanlike. And in some states it is illegal.   

       But when spearfishing, I had little compunction about setting out a can of tuna on a spear-friendly surface and waiting to see who showed up. Small fish first, and then a big one to bully the small ones away .... worse luck for him.   

       Can I get this with a scope on it? This could open up a whole new set of Boone and Crockett classes, but we're all going to have to get better about species identification.

       Certainly. Might we also recommend a laser sight as part of the upgrade package?

       I feel like this can be satisfied with a Nerf gun, although I have no evidence that a nerf dart ever proved fatal against a fly.

       Laser sight? No thanks, it's been done before and the fish are afraid of it.   

       Oh, you meant for insects. Well, if you need beta testers ....

       A dartboard, coated with something very attractive to flies, would be a nice accessory to this
