Bullets2Bandages .50 Caliber Bottle Opener

The guys at Bullets2Bandages recently reached out to me to see if I was interested in field testing one of their signature products, the .50 caliber bottle opener. Clearly, they look totally badass so I said, “Of course!” and prepared to launch an offensive on the arsenal of craft beer bottles waiting in the fridge.

Founded by a couple of former Navy bomb technicians, Bullets2Bandages is committed to donating at least 15% of its profits to veteran charities on an annual basis–and for the co-branded products featured on their website, they donate 40% from each sale to the respective charity.

Bullets2Bandages .50 Caliber Bottle OpenerThe bullet bottle openers are 100% made and sourced in the USA, from once-fired military grade .50 caliber® brass casings and demilitarized projectiles. They are available in a variety of finishes and can be customized with up to two lines of text, each with up to 25 characters. Mine came with a durable matte black powder coated finish, engraved with my web address. (BONUS!)

So anyway… on to the beer drinking! The opener feels nice, heavy in my hand. The notch cut in the side of the bullet fits snug against the cap and it comes off easily, with one swift pull. Pour, drink, repeat! Not only that, but my husband, a former Army man and avid hunter, is totally jealous… so there’s that.

If you’d like to snag one of these for yourself, head over to their website, www.bullets2bandages.org, and browse their selection of unique designs, or create your own. As a special bonus, enter promo code CHEERS10 for 10% off your order!
