Dude, you need a jeep project in the worst way!

BTW, I just ordered my FT lift yesterday from NR and shipping Friday. We'll see.

I had a dart gun with a fly swatter deal on the darts, good fun hunting flies.

i tried a regular fly swat which doesn't help at all since usually flies land on places that you cannot hit directly so using a big net catches them with out damaging stuff.

I catch them with chopsticks.

Then I pull their wings off and watch them walk until I get bored and then shoot them with my .45.

iĀ“ve a big air fanin one corner of my living room. if i turn it on on the highest level there is that much wind that all the flies sit down on the only wall without wind. then i can kill all the flies very easily.

For real fun, I use a propane torch with a clicker lighter. Get close to the fly, let out a little propane, gets the fly a little woozy, then click, whoosh. Almost as entertaining as that pizza/Tobasco/mosquito commercial.
