How many trigger pulls are in a full personal flamethrower?

Depends on how long the trigger pulls are, and the capacity of the flamethrower's fuel and compressed air tanks. If napalm is used, only a few pulls of the trigger are possible before the fuel is expended. If using regular gasoline or other liquid fuel, many more bursts are possible, but the range and destructive effect of the flamethower are reduced. To burn out an enemy pillbox and incinderate its inhabitants, napalm is best, and one pull of the trigger is more than adequate.
