Bug-A-Salt Camofly 2.0

We carry firearms for self-defense and hope we never have to use them. The Bug-a-Salt, though, is one of those items that we look forward to using.

Using a pump-action similar to many of the shotguns we've reviewed over the years, the Bug-A-Salt 2.0 loads through the top and is charged with a single pump of the handle. Working the action causes the rear sight to pop up into place, alerting you that the Bug-a-Salt is ready for duty. Take off the safety (of course it has a safety!) and you are ready to rid the world of one more flying pest.

This particular iteration contains what the company calls a "Camofly" pattern, for obvious reasons. This is the second version of the Bug-a-Salt pest remover, which uses less salt than the original version with the same insect-killing power. The company even sells a jar of maggots you can hatch into live-action targets.

MSRP: $44.95. Happy hunting!

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
