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,
Blake

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.

B:

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.

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.
