Mk 31 Mod 0 Pen flare projector and Mk 80 flares

I know they have been discussed here and elsewhere, but I need a source of these, The Mk-79 signal pack w/ a launcher and 7 flares would be great, but piecemeal would be good as well. If anyone has any questions, or any leads, shoot me a PM/email.

Good times,

Be careful with local laws.

Some local laws take a dim view of pen flares.

But what do I know, around here we still get the odd star cluster and parachute flare on the 4th of July.

Edited to add: Tru Flare Pen Launchers are carried by a number of Canadian companies.

Watch out that you are not dealing with any AOW issues.

As noted, pen guns are borderline, as people have made adaptors that allow rounds to be fired from them.

No, for the kiddies out there, we are not going to discuss how or where.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

Ditto on the above ....Pen flares have been hard to find in the USA because apparently the ATF considers the launchers to be destructive devices.
