While this was a wildly popular move for those who had ordered the flamethrowers, a few politicians found that the idea didn't sit too well with them. At $500 each, the flamethrowers brought in $10 million.
The gun lobby, however, was not amused. Fact is, Tesla CEO Elon Musk promised both and this weekend he delivered on his promisedpersonal flamethrowers.
Despite so many sales of The Boring Company's flamethrowers and with Elon Musk's customers eager for their new toys, Miguel Santiago commented that he simply could not understand the appeal of such a device. I will not use this in an unsafe way.
Local people named on Queen's birthday honours list
I am pleased to see the Queen's Birthday honours recognise the achievements of a diverse and inspiring number of our fellow Scots. The 28-year-old Joshua was rewarded with an MBE in 2013 after claiming an Olympic gold medal at the London 2012 Games.
Instead, the Boring Company torch guns function like large propane blowtorches.
For reasons that may seem obvious, especially if you have seen pictures of exuberant customers wielding their flamethrower, Musk has been criticized for hawking a device that poses a safety risk.
Elon Musk hinted at the Boring Company's plans to launch a "freezegun" in a tweet back in January.
"Anyways, we are hosting a Not-a-Flamethrower pickup party in Los Angeles on June 9, 2018, from noon to 5 pm".
The first 1,000 of these flamethrowers were handed out to customers at the company's offices in Hawthorne, California this weekend. Only eligible customers who have signed the terms and conditions and have registered at www.boringcompany.com/pickup may attend.
"When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower", he tweeted. "Where should we throw our next pick up party?"
The idea of selling flamethrowers to support Musk's tunneling venture may have sounded like a joke when he proposed it as a follow-up to the Boring Company's hat-selling operation, but it's turned into an honest-to-goodness money-raiser.

Mets release slumping veteran Adrian Gonzalez
He slimmed down over the winter and came to spring training this year with a chance to compete for the starting job at first base. At least if they don't stick Jay Bruce at first base and move their outfield parts around once Yoenis Cespedes comes back.

Trump revoked their invitation after one of their star players, Stephen Curry , said he would vote against a White House visit. So I want to give him full credit when his team beats the Cleveland Cavaliers for another league championship.
