Step 2: Trigger, handle and laser mount

Cut the end of the wooden strip (barrel) so it's slightly sloping (pic 1), and file a rounded notch in the end (pic 2). The side with the notch is the top of the gun.

Use a small file to roughen up the jaws of the clothes peg and file away the front edge to increase the angle so it will grab the cord better (pic 3). Hot-glue the peg to the wood on top and at the other end to the notch.

Cut a piece of the plastic tube 3 1/2 inches long and hot-glue it to the bottom of the barrel 1 1/2" back from the sloping end (pic 4). It must be exactly in line with the barrel.

Hot-glue the handle to the underside of the barrel, 15" back from the notch end (pic 5).

The SWAT Flykiller should now look like pic 6, and sliding the laser pointer into the tube should press the stud and turn it on.
get a burning laser and burn them from a really long range
but they fly off when heat changes significantly... i've tried... then I got the gassing stuff.
AHHHH, my leg is on fire.
its cool<br>
this is an old instructable and just wondered if you gotta video of it
When I was in the Navy, we used a yard stick and industrial sized rubber bands to hunt down and kill various fling insects on the barge in the shipyard. My best shot was five-feet.
Why don't you just use a rubber band gun?
Great target, I mean - fly, photo (with description of part). Accurate; their lunch could be dog poo, or peanut butter, or that scab on your leg. Nasty, dirty beasts.
&nbsp;we made these as kids in the mid 70's and called them Peg Guns. we used them to annoy the seagulls that attacked my friends aviary and after about a fortnight of stingy elastics the seagulls decided the aviary was more trouble than it was worth.<br /> The main ammo was plain elastic bands that the postman left lying around, but the rougher kids would add metal peg springs to the elastic and some injuries led to the banning by all parents.
dude thats awesome
If I am correct, flies are color blind. Therefore, they must think that the light is just the sun or whatever the largest light source is. This all lasts about half a second before they are shot.
OMG, I played with it around 60-70s...
good idea but my favorite method of fly killing involves an airsoft gun
wait i came up with a better idea, Can you say "SHOTGUN!"?
i like the way you think
can u usea couple of elastic bands instead of the shock cord?
yes but not as powerful
I make things like this and came up with an idea about a month ago, melt some led pellets and dip the end of the cord in it. can kill or leave quarter size welts
They would need to be pretty stretchy bands. You can stretch the shock-cord to twice its length, and it twangs forward just over its length (due to momentum). It may well work with a long, thick elastic band. I've found that thin shock cord works better than thick and rubber bands are thinner still . . .
