t3knomanser: but it's certainly not a weapon,

Neither is a baseball bat but tell that to the guy with his head bashed in at the dinner table in the Untouchables.

madgonad: WelldeadLink: A real flamethrower sprays liquid, not gas.

Spot on. It is a torch that propels propane/butane gas. It is technically the same thing every working farm has around to clear brush - it just looks like a gun.

Flamethrowers spray and ignite a viscous liquid, typically napalm which is a partially jellied/thickened gasoline. If you can safely discharge your 'flamethrower' inside your house, it isn't a flamethrower.


I *knew* the news wasn't covering all of the "burning pickle incident"!

If it didn't look like a scary gun, nobody would care.  But let's not pretend "looks like a scary gun" wasn't a selling point, or they'd have these.

t3knomanser: Puglio: It has more range than a propane torch

I mean, kind of. It's purposefully burning badly so that you get a more visible plume, because a good propane torch should have an almost entirely blue flame. That bright orange is a sign that it's not using the fuel efficiently and isn't nearly as hot as it should be. I mean, you could still start flammable stuff on fire with it, but that's also true of an aerosol can.

I find those propane torches generally useless against weeds.  Maybe I'm doing it wrong, it takes forever to do even a small patch.

My friend's neighbor uses one with a more focused attachment and it works very well. He's 80 and probably going to burn the house down, but damn, the edge of his grass is perfect!
