A Different Kind Of 21-Gun Salute

By Wyatt Earp | August 1, 2011

So, do you go gaga for guns? Are you a fan of firearms? If so, then I have a story for you.

Holy Smoke, a business in Stockton, Alabama (of course) will gladly accept the ashes of your loved ones and turn them into bullets. No, this is not a joke.

Holy Smoke, based in Stockton, Alabama, boasts a ‘tribute to your outdoorsman or woman like no other,’ according to their website. The company offers a means to ‘continue to protect your home and family even after you are gone,’ by turning ashes into fully-functioning bullets.

Once the deceased’s family decides the calibre and gauge of the ammunition, they send one pound of their dead relative’s ashes. From there, the staff place a portion of the cremated remains into each shotshell or cartridge, depending on the ammo selected. In return, Holy Smoke sends the family a case of up to 250 bullets for display in the home or to take on a hunting trip.

Note to my next-of-kin: I would not be opposed to this measure.

    A Paul Kersey revenge fantasy is playing out in my head. As there is not enough junk in there now.

    LDIV – What with the boobies, the hatred for Chi-Town politicians, etc.

    Mark – Me too!

    Jon – My wife already did. Oh wait, we’re not talking about a vasectomy, right?

    I guess you would need to be of a certain caliber to qualify for this offer.

    I’d be blown away by the idea.

    PhillyExpat – Well played!

    Mike47 – I can give some to my boss, and he can say, “You’re fired!”

    This may be a little Steven Wright-ish, but what if you made them into defensive rounds and shot an intruder…who would you say who killed him?

    Would they put the whole pound into a bomb intended for jihadis?
