Musk officially announced the launch of the latest when he posted the image of the flamethrower on his Instagram account. The company has priced the flamethrower at $500 instead of the previously rumoured $600 without shipping or additional taxes.

The company is not only selling a flamethrower but in addition to that, it offers a $30 branded fire extinguisher for “exorbitant amounts of money”. The product description goes on to add that anyone looking for a fire extinguisher can get it at less price anywhere. According to the product page on the website, the flamethrower will start shipping in spring.

Say hello to my little friend …

What is interesting about this fact is that Musk announced the launch of the product on Christmas when he added that the company is planning to launch a flamethrower after it sold 50,000 hats. It was quite unbelievable for most that Musk and The Boring Company in extension will start selling a flamethrower.

Last but not the least, it may be a concern for people that is it legal to own a flamethrower. Musk took to Twitter to reply to the question from famous YouTuber Marques Brownlee to add that it is “A-ok” as per the guidelines from The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in the United States.
