    So just recieved my 6 pack of bugasalt shotguns, already have made many kills but noticed a lack of knock down power past 3 feet. Check the POI and it is low. Going to try and add a comb and raise it a bit :) NOTE, pattern size at 20"

    Pretty even pattern but a lot of gaps. Change tubes to a tighter choke.

    Or maybe yer flinchin'. Think a release trigger might help?

    Pattern looks good for fly's, wasps etc but it could be a little open for skeeters and bull-gnats. I want one.

    himark,
    What salt are you using? My patterns are terrible compared to yours and I'm not scoring as many kills as I'd like. I noticed the barrel on mine is slightly covered by the barrel shroud and that was messing up the pattern, but it's still nowhere near as good as yours.

    Regular table salt for flys.. I switched to nutmeg for skeeters...you get a bit more coverage and you dont have to be much of a shot to kill the target ;)

    This is brilliant, it may be made in China, but it took AMERICAN ingenuity to bring it to the fore. I just shot my first 50 straight flies today... LOLLL. I'm thinking that maybe finely crushed rock salt or brass polishing granules might make for a payload with a little more range and knockdown power for the larger beasties, say Hornets for example, if you miss one of those suckers, or just "wing" him, you could be in for some trouble.. LOLL. Just think, the possibilities are endless, I mean how long can it be before someone starts offering choke tubes for these that offer superior patterns..?? They could call this new enterprise "Briny" chokes. LOL BTW, no need for any fancy combs or adjustable ribs, just get a $3.99 laser pointer from Walmart duct taped on a convenient location and adjusted to set the POI dead on the "bird".
