I was talking with a fellow yesterday and he was telling me that his buddies used to go shooting and when they were out of ammo they would put blanks in their guns, put about a teaspoon of gasoline in the bore-end of the barrel, pop the cap and watch a very spectacular fireworks display.

Now... myself, I would never try this and DO NOT suggest anyone else try it... but, has anyone else here ever heard of this?? Supposedly the flame is tremendous and didn't hurt the guns. Anyone??

Sounds horribly dangerous and damaging to the gun.

I thought this was going to be blueprints for making a home made flamethrower since I've posted them once or twice.

This only works if you do it while bumpfiring with the rifle totally submerged in a tank of gasoline.

How to make a PVC flame thrower






Go right to the source and make one yourself.

I think they are BS-ing you. If they have room for blanks, they have room for more ammo!...or they are a bit dense

Hair spray and a lighter is so much simpler.

Buy some 22LR hollow points....put some lighter flints in the hollow point...and shoot them at some steel targets...they make a pretty good shower of sparks.

A flame thrower is not a firearm, and completely unregulated.

It is not an NFA item.

Except in California you can walk into a farm and ranch supply store and buy one if they have any in stock.

I've just been prevented from posting links to the home-made flamethrower because of safety concerns.

This was posted a while back and the thread was not locked. Not sure on the legalities of this, but I dont think there was much the law could do.....

True. I see them at gun shows on occasion.

However, flame thrower igniters are regulated. Igniters are NFA items.

Flame throwers will not work without igniters.



That's why you see civilian owned flamethrowers converted to using a propane torch pilot light.

Hell if you want to try, cremora makes a great flamethrower mix. They use it or used it in the past for several flame throwing effects at Disneyland.

Only specific types of igniters.

PVC and homebuilt flamethrowers? *shudder*

I have not heard of gasoline and blanks, but I have personnelly witness an idiot spray WD-40 into the end of his barrel (10-22) and HK-93 just to perform a flame show...stupid. Yes, the weapon needed to be loaded and chambered before he spray the WD-40 into the barrel.

So you are stating that there are commercial flame throwers available in the US? Link, source and product please!
