Grooms and groomsmen share the strong and enduring bonds of brotherhood. Gift ideas for groomsmen should reflect those sacred connections. After all, you’ve gone through some of the most impactful moments of your life together. While it might be your night to shine, give your guys a gift that lets them know just how badass you think they are. All of Bottle Breacher’s bullet openers are created from once-fired, decommissioned rounds of ammunition. Whether used in training or the battlefield, each one tells a remarkable story about the brave warriors who sacrifice so much to preserve the freedom we hold dear. Blow your groomsmen away with one of these four incredible gifts!
.50 Caliber Bottle Openers
.50 caliber rounds are heavy-hitting cartridges typically used by the U.S. military in M2 machine guns and M107 sniper rifles. Dating back to World War I, .50 caliber cartridges have a long legacy of supporting US military forces as armor-piercing rounds. Today, .50 caliber rounds are regularly relied upon by multiple US security organizations. From the US Coast Guard to the New York City Police Department, .50 caliber bullets disable engines on boats, cars, and more. Many of our service men and women, including veterans at Bottle Breacher, have used .50 caliber ammunition in defense of our great country. A round of .50 caliber ammunition represents the patriotic defense of democracy, US security, and American heroism. Here are three .50 caliber bullet bottle options:
Chrome Bullet Bottle Breacher
The Chrome Bottle Breacher symbolizes the reliable and steadfast bond you share with your honorable groomsmen. Made in the USA, the authentic, once-fired .50 caliber ammunition has been recycled and reborn into a highly polished, hollowed-out bullet, making it an ideal decorative display or everyday bottle opener. The patented cut allows the opener to be used repetitively. Make your chrome bottle breachers even more special for your groomsmen by engraving them. The font is available in Stencil, Copperplate Bold, or Script. With up to twenty-five characters, you can add their names, wedding dates, or initials. While you’re at it, consider including the Father of the Bride too!
.50 Caliber Bottle Opener in Brass
Brass is often used to make ammunition because it’s robust and can last long. Since the nineteenth century, brass has played a big role in small arms ammunition. The .50 Caliber Bottle Opener in Brass symbolizes the rugged sturdiness of your groomsmen. In military circles, “the Brass” is slang for high-ranking officers, such as commanders and generals, who play decision-making roles. Whether your groomsmen are military officers or decision-makers in their civilian lives, the .50 Caliber Opener in Brass can be an awesome choice.
.50 Caliber Bottle Opener in Vintage
The .50 Caliber Bottle Opener in Vintage is an excellent choice for the military history buffs in your wedding party. The vintage opener is un-polished, giving it a classic look. Since .50 caliber ammunition dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century, it has seen its fair share of use. Spanning several US conflicts, the vintage bullet reminds us of the many generational sacrifices of our brave service men and women. Choose to honor your groomsmen further by engraving up to twenty-five characters in Stencil, Copperplate Bold, or Script fonts.
30mm Bullet Bottle Opener
A-10 Warthogs are some of the deadliest attack aircraft in the United States Air Force’s arsenal. Its main purpose is to provide air support for our courageous service men and women on the ground. Boasting one of the most powerful weapons systems of any fixed-wing aircraft in the US military, the A-10 Warthog has a GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon that utilizes 30mm ammunition. The cannon is capable of firing with incredible precision at both ground and aerial targets.
Bottle Breacher honors the legacy of the A-10 Warthog’s support of our honored service men and women by immortalizing the once-fired, decommissioned 30mm bullets into a commemorative gift for your beloved groomsmen. While our 30mm Bullet Bottle Openers are the real deal, they lack the Uranium that made them pack a mighty punch the first time around. Larger than the .50 caliber bottle openers, the 30mm Bullet Bottle Opener makes a bold statement. The authentic casing is anodized in Matte Black, which is a fancy way of saying it’s protected against corrosion. The handsome black tuxedo look makes it a perfect complement to your groomsmen’s wedding services. Add a personal touch by engraving their names, wedding dates, or initials to their openers!
Tuxedo Freedom Frag
Frag is a military term for a fragmentation grenade or hand grenade. While most hand grenades are designed to explode, sending fragments in several directions, the Tuxedo Freedom Frag is much more subtle and refined. Unlike most other Bottle Breacher openers, the Freedom Frag has never been detonated. But don’t worry: You won’t have to pull the pin to blow the top off any bottle! There are no explosives sitting dormant; it’s completely hollow. With its stylish black coating, safety lever, and safety pin, the frag has the look of impending destruction but offers a very smooth bottle breach. All frags are made from steel casting with a sheet metal spoon. Just like a real hand grenade, each one is uniquely different because of its noticeable imperfections, such as dents, divots, and elevated ridges. To make it even more of a one-of-a-kind gift, you can engrave your groomsmen’s frags with up to twenty-five characters. Add the wedding date, names, or initials. With its formal black tuxedo, the Freedom Frag is a fitting gift for your groomsmen.
At Bottle Breachers, all our openers are hand-crafted by veterans. All of our once-fired rounds and frags are handled with care and reverence. We take pride in providing an extremely high-quality product. If you’re looking for a badass way to surprise and honor your groomsmen, look no further than Bottle Breacher.
