    50 Caliber Bottle Opener

    At last weekends Torrington Gin Show a customer aked me if I could make him a 50 cal bottle open to go along with the 50 cal pen he bought.
    So after doing some research, got out my good quality metal files, installed a bi-metal band saw blade and this is what I came up with.
    I think these will be great sellers at the upcoming gun shows.

    Very cool, Les.

    This is another type of .50 cal bottle opener, although not as easy to control...

    Yup! That would certainly work, although I'm not sure I'd want to drink the contents afterwards. Personally, I use my class ring. Works beautifully & "carries" conveniently.
