First person shooters: Liquor in gun bottles

Anybody can do shots -- but how many liquor bottles look like they could be used to shoot somebody? The answer is two: Tommy Guns Vodka and Hijos De Villa Repo Pistol.

Tommy Guns Vodka is a Roaring 20's brand of rye vodka imported from Poland in a bottle the shape of the sub-machine gun. It's made by Alphonse Capone Enterprises out of St. Charles, Illinois.

Apparently there was a rival Vodka Kalashnakov, a commemorative glass bottle in the shape of the AK-47 Rifle that shipped in a wooden carrying case. But the bottle appears to be in limited supply with a starting price tag advertised in British pounds, which suggests that it might not still be available.

Keep in mind that's it never a good idea to point anything

gun-shaped at the police, as a Canadian man discovered during a traffic

stop in Edmonton in February 2008. Edmonton Police Staff Sgt. Ken Hykawy put the incident into perspective on CTV News:

"Had we reacted instinctively, and opened fire ... I mean, someone could have been shot for a bottle of tequila."

Tequila does attract trouble -- a semi-truck filled with more than $100,000 worth of it in the tommy gun-shaped bottles was stolen in 2007 from a truck stop in Orange County, Florida.

The Hijos De Villa Repo Pistol has a trigger and safety and the tequila dispenses from the cap. It's sold in a set with a collector's bottle and two shot glasses. Perhaps it would just be safer to stick with the condiment gun.
