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.

The glasses can be purchased online from the site directly, and from Contact eCommerce, which sells veteran-made merchandise online.

RIVIERA BEACH — When a distraught patient opened fire at the VA Medical Center in February, Albert Gaines' long ago military training kicked into gear.

"When I saw the arm come up, I knew what was next, pow, pow, pow," said Gaines, who was doing his job, cleaning patient rooms, when gunfire erupted. "I hit the deck to minimize the target."

Now, three months after what his bosses at the hospital call "the active shooter incident," the 65-year-old Riviera Beach man still feels like a target is on him.
