Is there a common usage name for these that would be easily understood by a layperson? Jet injector? Medicine gun? Injection gun? Something like that?

I don't think they are in the public eye enough yet. We called them pressure jet syringes.

When I was a kid, we always called them "booster guns." :Shrug:

That kinda sounds like what we called 'em back when I was in basic training some 20 odd years ago. If you pulled away at just the right time you could get a nice little scar.

Or if the administrator is running through a line of 500 enlistees without stopping long enough to do it right. I've got a nasty scar from that, and he was the one moving. It took forever to heal, and hurt for about six months. Plus, I don't think a drop of the stuff actually entered my bloodstream. It all ran down the arm.

I just calls 'em icky.

My friends with diabetes call them "jet injectors."
