Elon Musk reportedly has a net worth over $20 billion.
Choosing one of his favorite communications forums, Musk took to Twitter to post some photos of the flamethrower customer pickup event, accompanying his tweets with enthusiastic comments.
Those who bothered to put the products up for auction are looking to turn a profit-most of them are listed for more than $3,000, with one listed with a "Buy it Now" price of $20,000, according to CNN.
The guns, which are more of a blowtorch than an actual flamethrower, are receiving some criticism for being risky.
While it may seem like just fun and games to some, people are already burning things down that should probably be avoided, and using the for-sure flamethrowers in ways that violate the terms of their purchase.
"When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower", he tweeted.

The fire belcher has been renamed "Not A Flamethrower" after customs agencies refused to ship anything called a flamethrower. If TBC actually does plan to offer an ice blaster and expects it to be usefulwhen the "winter dry season" begins, the news should come soon. The tech billionaire shared pictures of distributing his most popular (and most controversial to date) fundraising technique for the Boring Company today via his Twitter.
This is not the first time he has referenced a ice-gun when addressing the tunnelling startup's future products on social media.
But The Boring Company had an even bigger surprise for their customers, and this was to hold a special flamethrower pick up party on June 9 in Los Angeles so that the first thousand flamethrowers could be personally distributed, something that has gone down as a treat with buyers.
