1972 Flame Gun Ad…wait, what?!

Flame Gun
When I first saw this ad posted over at Boing Boing I thought it had to be a joke. I can honestly say I’ve never run across a flame gun while perusing the store shelves of my local shops…of course the weather in my neck of the woods doesn’t exactly call for a need of a Flame Gun…though it says it is a gun with 1000-and-1 uses.
My favorite part of the ad besides the illustration of the woman using a “weapon” Q crafted for James Bond is this warning:
Flame Gun Warning

For my money though when it comes time to wage war against the zombie hordes, er, I mean melt snow and ice I want the model that was made in England!

Just remember…
