Forget what I said about the chainsaw or the shotgun, flamethrower wins for close quarters zombie defense.  Give it another season, Walking Dead will be all over the fire breathing on the walkers.  Perhaps you've always wanted a flamethrower, and now your opportunity awaits.

The XM42 is "the world's first commercially available handheld flamethrower."  Seriously, do we need to call it that?  It is like those big warehouses that say "OPEN TO THE PUBLIC" even though the public is the only who shops there.  How does XM42 work?  It breathes frickin' fire, what more do you need to know!?!

Laughable as it sounds, this is actually going to be an indegogo campaign that launches next week.  Flamethrowers are legal in all states except for one.  If you guessed California, you're right :(  Yea, it is a misdemeanor.  For the rest of you, you'll be able to shoot flames 20-25 feet and it runs on 87 octane.

I'll keep you posted when this drops, and I honestly think it would be a ton of fun to play with.  Visit XM42 website for more info until the crowd funding campaign launches.  Prices start at $699.
