My sister is arachnophobic, and so, I was at Target, saw a Clear Recon, and thought, 'I can kill spiders with this'
After a few kills, a few more blasters, and so on, we decided to document the wonders of ranged insecticide.
Said Video
Please note, this is on my sister's account, so any comments go to her, not me.

This is my first post here, so if I did anything incorrectly, please tell me, so I can fix it.
Have a nice day/night/evening/afternoon/etc.

Side-note: When you're killing spiders, shoes really help.

Spiders are for the most part harmless and usually beneficial. You could have just taken a cup and a piece of paper and let the guy go outside.

Normally we do just move them outside. But some, like the family of two inch long monsters we had recently, we're not willing to get that close to. But most of the small spiders, we just ignore.

I love shooting flys XD They, unlike most spiders, are complete and utter pests when in the house. With that said, if I ever see another wolf spider the size of a half dollar coin, I'm loading up my homemade blaster and using stefans.

I'm the only respectable person here. The rest of the NIC are pretty much just child molesters.

Wow, to shoot a fly you've really gotta have some incredible aim. I'll have to set a blaster aside for use rather than a fly swatter.

When I kill insects/arachnids, I use high powered blasters with suction darts so it splatters it and doesn't ricochet.

I hope people don't see this and then think nerf is about murdering animals.

That, my friend, seems just a bit far fetched. A single post about an alternate use for our skills, most likely wouldnt change anyones opinion about us. Of course im not from any of those animal rights groups, but I dont think anyone particularly cares if a few flys die.

No no no, you're doing it wrong. When I see a spider, I use my daddy's sig sauer. There's absolutely nothing left afterwards! :D

... No, seriously, don't do that. But really, even when that recon is modified, does it really kill the spider, or does it just launch it somewhere? The last time I shot an insect with a streamline, it just flew across the room. Just use a vacuum cleaner like everyone else to kill spiders.

Most of the time I go after flys, I use a Fly Zapper, which is like a tennis racket, but with an electric mesh, some of them actually POP!
The thing about power, a lot of the time, id takes a few hits to kill one, but I haven't found any since I got my Recon w/ OMW stage 1&2, so I wouldn't know how well it works. I can't wait until spider season though.

Wouldn't be the first time someone did (looks at NoM). Got shot in the mouth by a Teebow with spider guts covered dart. Was quite enjoyable too. (Just messin' around NoM :D)

I would have put this in the " Off Topic" thread, but it's here already.

Spiders are as scary as hell, but we should just man-up and catch them in a jar and put them outside (Thats what I now do.)
