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.
The 46-year-old multi-billionaire hosted a pick-up party in Los Angeles where customers could collect the first batch of 1,000 Boring Company flamethrowers.
Thousands more of the contraptions will be shipped out in the weeks ahead, Musk said. "For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham".
The best use is crème brulee...
The Boring Company, Musk's tunnel construction firm, claimed to have sold 20,000 of the weapons at $500 each, netting a total of $10m (£7.5m). Despite the fact that Elon Musk's flamethrowers are clearly not guns, they fervently objected to Miguel's bill, which was finally quashed, with Santiago noting that "Our bill right now is in the appropriations committee in the suspends file".
Instead, the Boring Company torch guns function like large propane blowtorches.

'Gunshot Sound Effect' Causes Panic at Eminem Gig
I 100% understand the effect it could have had on many In the audience, and I do believe we need to put a stop to gun violence. Eminem is responding to reports that he used gunshot sound effects during his 2018 Bonnaroo set on Friday (June 8).
Following the success of the flamethrower, Musk has started to tease the next Boring Company promotional product.
'Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!'
Musk named the item "Not a Flamethrower". The funds made through these "hot" sales would be, in turn, used to fund other ventures of The Boring Company.
The Boring Company has proposed to build a tunnel through West Los Angeles, passing underneath Sepulveda Boulevard through Culver City.
Musk also tweeted out the terms and conditions for his "Not-A-Flamethrower", which will ostensibly protect his company from liability for the inevitable flamethrower injuries and property damages, which come along with ... you know, handing out actual flamethrowers to people. The electric sled would allow for cars to be transported at 150 miles per hour through the tunnel, Musk has said.
