Get Nice And Loaded With These 6-Shooter Shot Glasses

Gear

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.

One of the few things that aggravates your friend and humble narrator more than hazelnut flavored coffee is Soviet apologists.

Case in point: A recent opinion piece in the New York Times claims the Soviet space program was a model for equality, noting the Soviets put a woman into space 20 years before NASA when Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova orbited the Earth in 1963.

"Cosmonaut diversity was key for the Soviet message to the rest of the globe: Under socialism, a person of even the humblest origins could make it all the way up," wrote Sophie Pinkham just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Herman "Herk" Streitburger was on his final bombing mission and due to go home when his plane was hit by German fighters over Hungary in 1944. He was captured and held as a prisoner of war, enduring starvation, forced marches and a harrowing escape.

Streitburger just turned 100 years old. That makes him a national treasure as well as a Granite State hero.

Streitburger, who lives in Bedford, gets around using a cane and remains active in POW groups and events. It was he who donated his family Bible to a POW "missing man" display at the VA Medical Center in Manchester, which prompted a federal First Amendment lawsuit.

And every year, he tells his World War II story to Manchester schoolchildren. It's a story worth retelling.

It only made sense, as the creator of the Two Rivers community monument told neighbors and friends he was a former Navy SEAL and had been a prisoner of war.

Except he wasn't.
