This just in from the bright ideas desk…the fly gun. This is the "you'll shoot your eye out" alternative to harsh chemical sprays. No mention of zombie flies in this article. You don't want to be looking pretty fly around the armed lass in this photo.
I can't improve on the copy so here it is, a feature photo from the NEA news service published August 26, 1941.
Can't Find a Deer? Hunt Flies!
If you're a hunter with nothing to hunt, try this fly gun, invention of a Californian at the annual conference of Western Inventors of America at Los Angeles. Jean Tally demonstrates the gadget.
Apparently the idea has been updated and sold today under the trade name The Amazing Flygun.
So insect, do you feel lucky?
