Title: Loved One Die Recently? Turn Em Into Bullets and Shoot Some Varmits!
Post by: Asteriktos on October 03, 2011, 01:15:10 PM
U.S. company turns gun lovers' ashes into ammunition (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/10/01/oukoe-uk-alabama-ashes-idUKTRE79007O20111001)

There's something to be said for going out with a bang.

Two Alabama game wardens have devised a smoking send-off for avid hunters and gun enthusiasts. For a small fee, they will turn cremated ashes into ammunition that the deceased's loved ones can fire at will.

Since it launched in Jyly Holy Smoke LLC has had only two clients, but founders Thad Holmes and Clem Parnell said they have seen an uptick in prearrangements thanks to word-of-mouth and a recent flurry of international press...

A pair of Alabama conservation (http://www.wtsp.com/news/topstories/article/213247/250/Company-will-load-loved-ones-ashes-into-ammunition) enforcement officers think they've come up with the perfect way for avid hunters to honor their loved ones for eternity.
 
Officers Thad Holmes and Clem Parnell have launched Holy Smoke LLC, a company that will, for a price, load cremated human ash into shotgun shells, and rifle and pistol cartridges.

At first I thought cremation in Alabama wouldn't be too popular, but the Southern Baptists (http://www.scrippsnews.com/content/popularity-cremation-heats-america) haven't denounced it, so maybe these boys can make some money.

Only in Alabama. When has something good from outta there? Guess that whole thinking on lead poising from shot might be true.
