Why own a Flamethrower? Because you can!

It finally arrived! We were one of the first to pony up the funds for The Ion Production Team's IndieGoGo campaign for their XM42 Handheld Flamethrower. This crazy piece of hardware has awesome giggle potential; we couldn't stop laughing from the moment we squeezed the trigger.

We opted for the powdercoated version and we think it turned out fantastic. We couldn't be happier. After a trip to the local Walmart for some butane and siphoning some gas out of the hearse we would soon be terrorizing the neighborhood.

We are lucky enough to have a large driveway. The flamethrower shoots well over 25 feet so you need to make sure you aren't going to light anything on fire that you don't really intend on igniting.

The Ion Production Team has done a great job at making this as safe as they can.  It's up to you not to do anything stupid with it.
