    I can see some idiots getting injured with this new "toy". Also,it looks more like a propane torch.

    I think it is essentially a propane torch otherwise it would legally be a weapon in almost every civilised country. I'm pretty sure you're not allowed proper flame throwers in the UK or most of the US.

    Personally, I just like the idea of a supersoaker and a match. Far cheaper. You just need to keep the point of ignition far enough away from the nozzle so it doesn't melt. Upside is that if this does get too hot, it'll melt (hopefully), shutting off the petrol supply and saving you an explosion.

I stopped doing this when one day a bottle I was using had a small hole in the bottom that I was unaware of, as soon as I lit the top it turned into a Bunsen burner on full power and melted half of my thumb! Ah I can still remember the agony and having to sleep with my thumb in a cup of cold water all night, good times, good times.

    Lol. I found Right Guard was always the best. We'd roped an old fuel drum to a tree for target practice to throw rocks at. One day, I decided to spray it full of RG (took the whole can) and light it. As it ignited, the force caused it to swing on the rope, and all I saw was the flames gushing towards my head. Escaped with zero injury. My mates didn't see it, but came rushing as they'd heard the almighty boom.

    Silly boy.

    I never did ANYTHING like that.

    Certainly not as an adult.

    I got annoyed at the government using their budget for pro-Brexit arguments. I may have shot the leaflet many times on full auto and then set fire to it with magnesium ribbon. I also stained my garage floor after the magnesium (which took a blow torch to get going, grrr) wouldn't go out and I had to use the fire extinguisher.

    I am not a normal person.

    At least you know that; and knowing is half the battle

    although tbh, in my household it's practically an insult to call someone "normal"

    Easy-start! Comes with a spray nozzle, and is more burny than hairspray (probably)
