xm42-flamethrowerThey say that every man has a little boy in him, and perhaps that might ring true after all. I am quite sure that we all know of at least one guy who upon turning 40, decided to splurge in a really big buy – perhaps a new sports motorbike, or a brand new sports car. Well, for the hidden pyromaniac in you, you might want to consider something far smaller for your impulse purchase, dancing to the tune of the $900 XM42 Handheld Flamethrower.

Most of us would have the image of a rather bulky device where flamethrowers are concerned, especially since we have seen plenty of such examples in the movies before. In addition, there are also examples of flamethrowers in video games where these tend to be rather unwieldy and large when used by heroes, but the XM42 Handheld Flamethrower is small enough that there is no need for any kind of oversized tanks or harnesses to, er, harness.

Apart from that, it is so easy to use, that it fills up in the same manner of any other lawn tool out there, except that it breathes out fire instead of blowing leaves or trimming your hedges – and there is a range of up to 25 feet, now how about that for being impressive?
