I was wondering if the following might be included in the campaign -
Exotic Weapon

(Exotic) Ranged Weapons Flask Thrower
Cost 25
Weight 4 (2 if small)
Dmg as per thrown item
Range 20'
Source: Gnomes of Golarion
Benefit: A flask thrower significantly extends the range of thrown substances that deal splash damage, such as acid, alchemist's fire, or holy water, as well as that of tools such as tanglefoot bags, thunderstones, or caltrops.


Analysis:
This item would increase the range of mundane alchemical items (from 10' to 20'), but wouldn't have any affect on bombs (which are already at 20').

I reckon it would look more like a lacrosse stick than a hobbit's sling staff. I believe loading it would be at least a move action: precariously perching a delicate flask in the basket -- while reducing risk of dropping it -- seems a little like inserting a bolt into a narrow slot and pulling back a high-draw string/cable (reloading a crossbow)...

I'm having issues finding the original source material. I am curious if the description does indeed mention anything about loading times.

I take it it's another situation where if you build it you can use it without the feat due to your trait? Correct?

Alternate racial ability, but yes, that would be the idea.
