Has someone you loved recently passed on to that great trap field in the sky? Is deer hunting with Grandpa one of your fondest childhood memories? Or would you just like a way to make sure your trusted Labrador can continue to help you bring in those ducks once he’s gone? If you’re struggling with how to appropriately memorialize that certain someone, the creative folks at Holy Smoke may have just the solution for you…
Holy Smoke will load the cremated remains of your special someone into live ammunition, either shotgun shells or cartridges. How and where you fire your loved one’s remains is up to you.
I can imagine that indoor range owners may not be thrilled with you spreading your best buddy’s ashes around their facility. And there seems to be a certain ‘ick’ factor to shooting a deer with a 30-06 bullet that’s carrying Grandpa’s essence along with it. But maybe that’s me.
This kind of uniqueness doesn’t come cheaply, however. A box of 250 Fido-infused shotgun shells will run you $1,250. Cartridges are even more expensive on a per-launch basis. You can add a “mantle-worthy, finished, wooden handcrafted box” with labels for an additional $100.
So if you’re trying to figure out how to provide the right kind of closure to the loss of that special someone, Holy Smoke ammo could be just the send-off you’ve been looking for.
