Bullets2Bandages .50 Caliber Bullet Bottle Openers
I ordered a Bullets2Bandages .50 caliber bullet bottle opener a few months back, and absolutely love it. Not only is it one eye-catching piece of craft beer gear, but each purchase helps a local San Diego business with deep philanthropic ties for supporting military veterans.
Bullets2Bandages was founded by Erik Spalding and Cole Evans, two former Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal officers. After retiring from the military, they realized the bullet — a symbol of destruction — could be transformed into a unique product that paid tribute to both veterans, and active military alike.
Their mission is:
To provide simple ways for every American to give back and show their pride and gratitude for veterans. We also strive to raise awareness of the many challenges veterans face and raise money for organizations giving veterans the support they need to overcome those challenges.
Bullet Bottle Opener In Action
A Better Bottle Opener
Not only do these 50 caliber bullets look badass, but they make for a highly functional bottle opener. Some weak openers don’t have a long enough tooth, which can often wear down. That causes the opener to slip off the edge of the bottle cap, taking a couple tries to get the bottle open.
But you don’t have that problem with Bullets2Bandages bullet bottle opener — it rips the cap right off with ease! Made from military grade, once fired brass, the durable opener’s cutout is perfectly engineered for maximum leverage. These 50 cal’s open your precious craft beer effortlessly.
As stated above in their mission statement, and more important than the coolness of the actual product, are its benefits to military veterans. Depending on the logo/branded design you choose for your bullet bottle opener, a different veterans group or charity receives a portion of the sale proceeds.
Bullets2Bandages also offers dogtags and apparel, as well as two of their newest products: an engraved 6 pack bottle caddy, and a giant 22mm bullet opener. They also have a Kickstarter in place to get their handcrafted leather goods program up and running.
