PDRWLSN flamethrower pistol The Gun of the Week this time around is a bizarre thing, the PDRWLSN flamethrower pistol. This strange device is essentially a copper tube, a wooden housing for a butane cartridge and a BBQ type flame ignitor.  It is marketed, I understand, as a dangerous animal repellent for those people who, for whatever reason, don’t want to carry a conventional firearm.  Since it does not actually fire a projectile it is quite possible that carrying this thing would be legal by people for whom firearms are not permitted. I seem to recall
