Immediately after Elon Musk sold all caps with the logo of his offspring Boring The Company, which is going to drill under the city tunnels, the CEO tweeted that he was going to sell flamethrowers. Everyone thought it was a joke. Vainly. Users of Reddit discovered that the Mask was not joking.
Hats sold out, flamethrowers soon!

On the page “boringcompany.com/flamethrower” there is a field for password entry, and one Reddit user manually did. This opened a page of the online store of the company that had the product description — the flamethrower from The Boring Company — and a button to pre-order.
According to the information given on the page, the flamethrower from the Mask will cost only $ 600 and will be available in April 2018.
Sell flamethrowers in the US can be quite simple, because they are not considered firearms (as strange as it may sound — shoot-then they fire!), so their sales do not need to obtain permission from the security services and to pay additional taxes to the Treasury. To buy such a thing can do everything, who are 18 years of age. But in Russia, this is a bit more complicated — the import of flame-throwers in our country is prohibited.
The sale of caps with the logos of The Boring Company earned 300 thousand dollars. I wonder how many will be able to help out by selling flamethrowers?
