Turn Deceased Loved Ones’ Ashes Into Bullets

The smokeAlabama-based company Holy Smoke will do just this, loading cremated remains into live shotgun rounds — allowing for numerous possibilities of sweetly perfect, Tarantino-esque posthumous vengeance:

My friend smiled and said “You know I’ve thought about this for some time and I want to be cremated. Then I want my ashes put into some turkey load shotgun shells and have someone that knows how to turkey hunt use the shotgun shells with my ashes to shoot a turkey. That way I will rest in peace knowing that the last thing that one turkey will see is me, screaming at him at about 900 feet per second.”

I realized that my friend was describing almost exactly how I wanted my ashes to be spread. How perfect to have my family and friends honor me by using shotgun shells with a little bit of my ash in each one. Whether my shells get shot at sporting clays or live birds or put on the shelf, even in death I could be ecologically sound and useful.

From that statement, we started a company that can take your or your loved ones ashes and produce an eco-friendly way to spread or use those ashes while conducting a favored activity.
With care and reverence, we can place the ashes of your loved ones into almost any caliber or gauge of ammunition.

    I was going to make a “The Patriot” reference, but I remembered how terrible the movie was and I’m angry now.

    I would prefer to be shot from a huge circus cannon, preceded by a 21 clown
    horn salute. The funeral procession would be short as the clowns could all share
    a car.

    Yes, I want the final action of my mortal remains used to kill a living being for fun.

      It does have some interesting karmic implications.

    I think you could make a really cheesy movie about someone avenging someones death with a bullet made from their corpse, maybe a viscous cycle where it comes back and the avenger gets killed with a bullet made from that guy’s corpse.
