ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A mere $200 gets you this pelicanoid case with four of Muzzleshot's muzzle-suppressor-shaped shot-glasses, machined from solid aluminum and covered in a matte black anodized finish.
So tacticool that you don’t even need ice…
Hmm, when I was a kid, we had some anodized aluminum tumblers. I still remember the metallic taste they imparted to everything. Hopefully they’ve fixed that by now, and for $50 a shot.
Version 2.0 should have a (slightly raised) glass bottom and be fully functional when mounted on a barrel.
Also, the drinking vessels are more properly and pedantically styled after a “flash hider”.

It is tactical rails all the way down, like a combination Ballardian/Gibsonian universe.
beat me to it.
Well now, there ain’t nothin’ much finer than drinkin’ from somethin’ that reminds you of the power of your own personal arsenal of death-dealin’ hardware, now is there!?
Could I also fix it to the end of my (insert your own preferred instrument of self-defence/assault/penis-substitute here.) ?
A gun = penis dig? You must’ve really earned that B- in your community college psychology class.
Aw, I envisioned shot glasses that look like the thing they put over Hannibal Lecter’s mouth when they wheeled him into the courtroom.
Flash suppressor. It suppresses flash. It screws onto the muzzle.
Apple makes them, yeah?
You’d better pipe down or I’ll suppress your muzzle.
I think that for recreational intoxication, basic camp chores and home defense you’d be far better served by a Pipe Tomahawk ;)
Yuck. Now you can have a metallic taste and a side of alzheimer’s with every shot.
It’s actually a flash hider, not a suppressor.
Flash suppressor is a perfectly legit term for it. Muzzle suppressor, on the other hand, isn’t (there’s flash and sound suppressors, which work differently).
$200? Good god they are proud of some milled aluminum.
billet alloy, machined, small production run – PVD coating probably done by 3rd party – $200 about right.
I read that the ones produced in plastic using 3D printing can be just as effective!
In fact, there’s a video of a guy who did print one and demonstrated that it lasted over 600 shots!
Not really sure that putting a flash suppressor (or something that looks like it) in your mouth/up to your face is necessarily a good idea. Particularly when drinking heavily…
