bottle

Those crafty Japanese toy inventors are at it again:

I definitely would try and build my own before I’d drop $361 USD (28,350 YEN) on this!  Besides the few custom parts, it looks like you could get most of the kit from Home Depot.

Too bad there’s not a youtube video of this in action.  There are a lot of vids of people shooting bottles into the air using bicycle pump rigged launch pads though so I assume this would be similar.

Thoughts?

Rifling on the inside of the neck of a beer bottle?  Sure why not…

Miller came out with this new “Vortex” bottle to try and boost sales according to an article at Brandweek.

I have my doubts that it will make Miller Lite taste any better.. but I definitely will buy a 6 pack at least just to try the cool bottles.  “Mission Accomplished” is what Miller’s marketing team would be saying right now if they read this.

If any companies outside of firearm manufacturers want to win my heart, combining something firearm related with your product is a sure bet.

I wish Miller would have played off the gun idea though.. but I guess there are too many negative connotations associated with putting something “rifled” in your mouth, or even the popular term, “to shotgun a beer”.

You can visit the Miller Lite website HERE, although there is surprisingly no information on this new bottle.  Some of the commercials they have online are pretty funny though.

SayUncle points out a recent post on the SubGuns forum where one of the guys asks if hes paranoid or not, to think that owning one of these Tipton brand “Patch Catcher” devices could be considered intent to manufacture a suppressor.

From the product description:

Innovative design! Cleaning the barrel on your firearm can be messy. Solvent spatter, drips and dirty patches always seem to end up where you don’t want them. Solvents and gunk can stain clothes. Solution? The Tipton™ Catcher.

Attach it to the end of the muzzle of any gun. Screw an empty water or soda bottle into the threaded end. Dirty patches and solvent are safely and cleanly contained. Then just toss the bottle!

In my opinion, just having the product “as is” and using it to catch patches would never be considered intent.

I’d say it would be a completely different story though if you were caught shooting with the patch catcher on, and a bottle attached.  Worse yet, if you were caught with the patch catcher and a bottle that had something that looked like it had baffling, spacers, wipes etc.. I think it would be safe to say you would be in a load of trouble.

There are quite a few videos on YouTube of people making plastic bottle suppressors and using them on their 22LR.  It’s hard to tell with background noise and crappy cameras if the sound is actually being suppressed.  I wouldn’t want to take any chances though.

Apparently this “limited” release vodka and souvenir AK-47 shaped bottle has been around for a while.  Today was the first time I had ever seen or heard of it.

It comes in a cardboard box, with a wooden carrying case inside (pictured).  The bottle itself contains 1 liter of vodka, and attached is a dog tag with a number (1-13000) representing the ID number of your bottle.

The bottle would definitely be a neat collectors item.  A google search yeilds no clear results on the price or where it’s available stateside.

The bottle in this case of course is shaped like a Tommy gun.  It is readily available in the US for around $50.

If you are reading this and you live in Canada… it’s not a good idea to point a bottle of either one of these at the police.  You will be arrested.

EDMONTON — Edmonton police say they’ve arrested a 24-year-old suspect after a man pointed what turned out to be a machine gun-shaped liquor bottle at an officer conducting a traffic stop Friday night.Around 11 p.m., police say a second officer noticed a man in a nearby house pointing what looked like a long barreled gun at the officer doing the traffic stop.

More officers were called in and the home was surrounded.

Several people inside the house eventually surrendered peacefully.

Police then discovered that it wasn’t a real weapon that had been pointed at the officer – it was a liquor bottle made in the shape of a gun.

Jessie Shamarchi Petrin, 24, was charged with possession of an imitation weapon dangerous to the public peace.
