Elon Musk appears to be selling $600 Boring Company flamethrowers now...

Elon Musk's

Musk first floated the idea for The Boring Company on Twitter in December past year, telling his followers he had sold out of branded hats and meant to sell flamethrowers next.

Flamethrowers are now available to pre-order through The Boring Company, which it says is "guaranteed to liven up any party!". Musk says that according to the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - ATF for short - any flamethrower whose flame is less than 10 feet long is safe.

In a series of social media posts, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO promoted the flamethrower with truly freakish claims, including "great for roasting nuts" and "guaranteed to liven up any party".

Pitchford offered to allow Musk to write the "flavor text" and Musk tweeted back that he was fine with the flamethrower being used in the game.

While Musk humorously denies that he's setting up the zombie apocalypse, Musk may not be quite right in his assertion that you'd need a giant factory to make enough of the undead for an apocalypse.

The Boring Company chose to start selling flamethrower weapons over the weekend, and they appear to have become an aspiring supervillain's newest shop. In a video posted to Instagram, Musk can be seen using the flamethrower in a hallway. "You can place an order on the website, and we will start shipping in the spring".

Musk established The Boring Company in December 2016 after he tweeted "Traffic is driving me nuts".

In the U.S., the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms allows civilians to own flamethrowers as long as the flame is less than 10 feet long. Considering that Musk's surprise flamethrower throws less than the regulations of the California Health and Safety Codes 12750 and 12761, The Boring Company can sell them as much as they please.
