Saw this in Twitter when checking up on iSoaker. Anyone know anything about these? Likely is a pressurized reservoir water gun.

They feel like pinch triggers, and retail for $20. Pass.

I should buy a whole bunch of the SEALs blasters for my team. Our official weapon, haha. CPS? Pfft, we're so good, we don't need CPS!

In all seriousness, I could've sworn someone posted about these before because I remember commenting on the SEALs one.

You could really just get the guns, carefully remove the stickers, and then put them on all your camo primaries. That would be sweet actually.

Interesting find. I recall looking into military flamethrower design before. Seems that most things on it are classified. I'm also not sure how much the combustion would change the design conclusions.

On that note, a lot of military fire protection research also seems to be classified, sometimes for entirely unclear reasons. There are some studies on the range of fire monitor streams under wind that I'd like to see, but as I recall at least one of these reports is classified. Secret super-effective technology maybe?
