Get Nice And Loaded With These 6-Shooter Shot Glasses
A veteran-run company in California makes specialty items for holiday and groomsmen gifts, and their Six-Shooter Shot Glass will have you doing your best John Wayne impression as you load round after round of your booze of choice.
These shot glasses, made by Bullets2Bandages in San Diego, are based on the cylinder of a Colt Revolver. Shipped in packs of two, four, or six, the gun-metal grey glasses are custom engraved, made with anodized aluminum, and roughly the same size as the firearm cylinder on which they’re based.
The company was founded in 2011 by former Navy explosive ordnance disposal technicians Erik Spalding and Cole Evans as part of a memorial fundraiser for the Travis Manion Foundation. Over time, it grew into a veteran-owned and run company geared toward selling ammunition themed gifts like .50-cal bottle openers and 30mm shot glasses.
So if you’re looking to knock back a few rounds of tequila or whiskey like a gunslinger from the Wild West and think making drunken puns about reloading your glass sounds like a good time, then check these out.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Known for acting on impulse, President Donald Trump has adopted an uncharacteristically go-slow approach to whether to hold Iran responsible for attacks on Saudi oil facilities, showing little enthusiasm for confrontation as he seeks re-election next year.
After state-owned Saudi Aramco's plants were struck on Saturday, Trump didn't wait long to fire off a tweet that the United States was "locked and loaded" to respond, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran.
But four days later, Trump has no timetable for action. Instead, he wants to wait and see the results of investigations into what happened and is sending Pompeo to consult counterparts in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates this week.
