    Wink Alcohol and guns don't mix? Well, maybe!

    I've been looking for a Christmas gift for the son who has everything. By everything, I mean a safe full of firearms and associated goodies. He wants to add a Red Dot sight to his G19, doesn't want to ruin the slide by having the dovetail altered, doesn't want to pay for an additional slide, so he buys another G19 to have altered. Boys and their toys.

    So I'm cruising the local booze store, looking for a nice bottle of port for the holidays, and on the bottom shelf I find THE gift. It's a bottle of tequila shaped like just a 1911. I bet he hasn't got one of those! I don't know how many "shots" it holds, but I'm sure it can be reloaded. Can't wait to fire a few shots from it myself!

    It redefines the definition of a "loaded" firearm!

    Reposado "Hijos de Villa." Comes with two shotglasses and an exhibition base. It was $22. The "gun" even has a serial number sticker on it. Hopefully the pics come out okay.

    I think the caliber wars are over. One shot of that is 656.25 grain. Tell him to be careful with it, the kick might knock him over . Hollow point shot glasses might be a good gift for next year.

    I suppose that threaded end is for a suppressor?
