Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: Though now that I think about it, the markup is about what you pay for those little travelsized bottles, and they sell well enough that I've never seen a liquor store without them.


But does anybody actually buy those things on a regular basis?  I think I've bought maybe 2 in 40 years, probably to pad out cheapo Christmas/birthday gifts for office acquaintances.

violentsalvation: Pants thoroughly shat. Since when has it been ok for an outdoorsman to unload and put away his rifle, make camp, and enjoy a stiff drink around a camp fire? This is a first. We have to put an end to this! Fun could be had! A safe hunt could be made more enjoyable!


I worked in a 24 hour party store in Mt Pleasant, Michigan when I was in college, and one of my strongest memories of that era was that during hunting season, beginning at about 3:30 AM, there was a steady stream of bearded, camouflaged rednecks coming through to buy junk food and fill their leg-sized thermoses with our crappy coffee. All of these guys carried their rifles slung over their shoulders, and I would say that more than half of them were already drunk as pigs. I'm talking one guy held up by two of his giggling buddies drunk, staggering around the store and laughing their asses off with their eyes three-quarters shut drunk, all on their way out to the woods with high powered rifles. And every year when one of these retards would blow the head off of another one, everyone would act surprised that such "accidents" could occur.

So you can reminisce all you like about the elegant tradition of "...an outdoorsman to unload and put away his rifle, make camp, and enjoy a stiff drink around a camp fire..." but having seen how it actually works in practice, I'll decline.

Um. I said not everyone that likes the outdoors carries a gun. I know reading comprehension is hard but try and keep up. Don't feel bad if you need to ask to have something explained to you. Asking is better than sounding like an idiot. Like you do now.

The inventor must have been to a Wyoming Cowboys football game in Laramie in November. (personally I use 'shine from a friend in NC, and it is resealable. Mason jars have always been resealable.)

There's nothing scary about this.  The hooch is in a plastic pouch so it's easier to puncture while it's in the hunter's pocket with other objects that could pole a hole in it.  Also it's safer for the hunter and anyone with him.  If he falls and breaks the glass bottle, there's a chance he could do serious damage to himself.  Also the glass remains left behind poses a threat to all the critters that might step on it and hurt themselves.  A plastic pouch is harmless.

Also a hunter who is fool enough to be drinking while carrying around a gun will quickly do himself in through some form of alcohol induced stupidity.

optikeye: In Michagan..the Blind are legally allowed to Hunt.


You act as if "legally blind" meant "completely unable to see anything".  Plenty of people who are legally blind have partial vision.  I know at least two people who are legally blind, unable to drive a car, but whose vision is good enough to get them around via walking and public transport.  I dine out regularly with one of them and he can read regular-print restaurant menus with strong eyeglasses and in good lighting.  The other is employed as, IIRC, a software developer; not sure what level of on-the-job accommodation he requires but it's obviously doable.

That reminds me. I was scanning a book of random odds today and found this shocking factoid:  alcoholics are 58x more likely to commit suicide tha sober or teetotal people. 58 times. 5800%. (By coincidence the number of posts in this thread before mine. Synchronicity.)

Guns and alcohol do not mix. One or the other has to go. I vote guns. Most of us are not alcoholics nor are we bing drinkers because we have grown up and only have one, two, maybe occasionally three drinks within any period of time lasting more than two courses or the equivalent in canapés.

Alcohol is also involved in a large majority of accidents, fights, assaults, and stupid pranks.

People who drink should not be allowed to have guns, and people who have guns should not be allowed to touch them while their blood alcohol level is high enough to affect their driving.

Alcohol acts as a depressant. People who are depressed should probably be kept away from guns as well. You are six times more likely to successfully kill yourself with guns than sleeping pills. Sleeping pills give you time for a re-think. Guns seldom leave you any time or room for do-overs.

When I was a child, we often visited our cousins in Maine. During hunting season you would see hunters in the fields, looking for cows and cars to shoot. Stupid city-slickers. If there were a moose in a cow pasture, it would be somebody's pet. They like to keep the cows company. They are often nearly calves themselves.

A lot of people hunt or fish drunk. This is not a good idea either, especially in a canoe. You're lucky if you don't get a good dunking even without the drinking.

Guns should have built-in breathalizers that lock the gun if you are drunk. Then weddings and other family gatherings would be a lot more fun for the people who attend them and a lot less fun for Farkers. I know, that's a big downside, but human lives come first, then yuks.

58 times. You're only 19 times more likely to die a violent death if you are a black American youth or a young Russian in Moscow.

Guns and alcohol are a potent and dangerous mixture--even more than Ray Romano thinks they are.

I buy them all the time, mostly for when I want to try a new cocktail but dont want to commit to a whole bottle of something I may not care for.

they usually also have $1 bottles of new stuff at the counter for the impulse minded purchaser. so, Ill usually add a buck or two to my bill

Quantum Apostrophe: Um, pretty sure you can buy "resealable" (ie, it has a screw-on top) water pouches at the dollar store. I wonder if you could fill those with some other fluid? The only way this could possible be stupider is if the pouch was 3D printed.

Subby also didn't say that everyone who goes outside has a gun. That was your inference. Now why would you infer something like that?

In my state being drunk while in possession of a firearm is a felony.

I've been looking for something like this after seeing something similar in a Ray Mears episode.

too bad they don't make it with 190, or vodak.


Now you just know someone will have the bright idea to reuse the pouch and fill it with something like 200 proof moonshine. Someone else will have the even better idea of tossing the pouches in the fire.

Nothing like making it easier and easier to get totally blitzed. Especially during hunting season.

Personally, when I used to drink, I preferred a nice, sturdy metal hip flask. They wouldn't pop if you fell on them and since they were a bit pricey, often engraved, you tended not to toss them in campfires when empty or overboard.

The last hugely innovative booze invention caused a whole lot of problems for everyone. Pop-tops. They eliminated the need for a can opener for beer. However, they came completely off, tended to have sharp edges and were disposed of by casually tossing them away. Especially in the sand at beaches, where folks could cut their feet on them.

BTW. The pouch will have to be made of plastics. The majority of plastics come from petrochemicals. Those chemicals come from crude oil. That means if these things take off, they'll actually contribute to keeping the cost of your gas high.

So subby says outdoorsman are "the guys walking around in the woods with guns" . Why on earth would I make that inference? Oh I dunno. Cause that's what subby said?

Sure it was a hunter? That sounds more like a miss than a stray bullet. How often does your house get shot up? I don't think gun control will heal what ails you.

Meh, you can still get stuff like that.

Most of us are not alcoholics nor are we bing drinkers because we have grown up and only have one, two, maybe occasionally three drinks within any period of time lasting more than two courses or the equivalent in canapés.


Interesting.  You vote on banning guns due to the danger of drinking & guns, but then go on to mention the danger of fishing drunk, boating(canoeing), probably know about drunk driving, etc...

Then you suggest having breathalyzers on guns due to the dangers of being drunk with a gun, specifically at a wedding.  Now, I know there have been incidents, but really?

I average less than 12 drinks a year.

Unless you can demonstrably prove that that no "outdoorsmen" use guns, the joke is valid. And, even if you did, it doesn't explain why you're being defensive that someone dare suggest that guns, instruments that are engineered for killing, would be dangerous, especially in the hands of someone who is inebriated.

There's lots of reasons to be a better drunk in  the outdoors.

Stainless steel can impart a metallic taste to your good, (or Bad),  Scotch or Whiskey. Plastic doesn't. Well Titanium doesn't either, but you don't find them in the grab and go section.
