The Most Baller Way to Take a Shot of Whiskey. Ever.

take a shot
We’ve all taken shots before. From your typical glass shot glasses, maybe off of bodies in the backs of frat houses or dive bars, but have you ever taken a shot out of something that looks like it was invented by Rambo and marketed by Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character in the 1987 classic guy movie Predator?

Boy, do we have a treat for you.

The Ballistic 5.56 Shot Glass, once called the Muzzleshot and developed by Caliber Ballistic Barware and designed by Leitner-Wise, is made from hardcoat anodized, aluminum and is modeled after the A2 Flash Hider—the original muzzle device for the M16 rifle.

Caliber-Ballistic-5.56 Shot Glass 2

Each 5.56 Shot glass costs $32.50. And, if you’re looking for a way to carry them around, Caliber has got you covered with the SKB 3I Series injection molded mil-standard waterproof cases. The case is made from ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin and feature a gasketed, water- and dust-tight, submersible design. It resists impact, corrosion, UV, solvents, and fungus and has a patented trigger release system.

Translation: this is one tough mother f’ing shot glass case. You can basically do anything you want to it and it’s going to come out on the other side looking like it just rolled off the production line. Not that your apartment is a war zone—you’re a gentleman, after all—but it’s good to know what it can stand up to.


The case, without shot glasses will run you $150, making a set of four shot glasses and case together a cool $280.

Basically, if you plan on going all James Bond or Jason Borne on the world in the next few years, and you still want to be able to drink while you do it, the Caliber Ballistic Barware 5.56 shot glass and case are for you. If nothing else, when you’re not out engaging in international espionage, you can pretend like it when friends ask what the briefcase is for.
