Drinks Bandolier

bandolier for canned drinks

Normal six packs of beer are wasteful in terms of the plastic that gets ripped off and thrown all over the place. The modern youth is also not satisfied with a mere six pack, when what they really want is about twenty four cans for a good binge.

If they were to arrive at the local off- license with a drinks bandolier, possibly to be named the Cans-dolier, they would find the answer to both their problems.

Drinks Bandolier is an over the shoulder belt, just like a normal bandolier but with bigger holding loops built into it, to grip the cans. It operates in the opposite way to a machine gun belt feed. The Drinks Bandolier gets fed into a slot in the drinks cabinet, emerging on the other side with each of its loops filled with the pre- selected cans of choice.

Once filled, the happy customer then emerges with his/her weekend's supply slung over one shoulder, or both if intent on having a serious session.

       These would sell like hot-cakes.   

       I've seen girls with vodka bandoliers, each loop containing a shot-glass. Vodka girl strides up before settling into a stance where she balances a large bottle of vodka on one of her provocatively jutting hips and asks the gents whether they'd like to sample her wears.

       (sp. "wares") - I think "provocatively jutting hips" are supposed to distract you from watered-down vodka.

       Overpriced, not always watered down. Drunk men buy more drinks from pretty women.

       Where I live we like our beer warm, but cold packs are a possible refinement.

       Not that I'm advocating binge drinking, but a six shooter pistol shaped dispenser to shotgun a beer at the press of a trigger would complete the ensemble.   

       and spurs.   

       Naw, the six shooter has whiskey.

       A question for any old western gunslingers: If you got shot in the bandoliers, would it make your bullets (so stored) go off? Or might it act as a crude form of body armour - albeit on the skimpy side?
zen_tom, Oct 02 2006

       The bandolier more likely contained rifle shells rather than pistol.   

       And remember that most of the shell is a thin brass casing filled with propellent.   

       The only solid bit is the actual bullet in the front.   

       The brass casing is not going to absorb much momentem, and once it is shattered the propellent is not terribly dangerous.   

       If the arriving bullet were to scrape the back of the shell just right, it might ignite the primer and fire the shell, but that seems terribly unlikely. And at that point the bullet fired into your chest is likely to be more dangerous than the one firing on your chest.   

       The final case would be if the incoming bullet hit the actual bullet end of the shell in the bandolier. Glancing hits are just going to change the penetration trajectory slightly. A direct hit of the incoming shell precisely on the midline of the bullet might reduce the penetration potential, but it might also shatter both bullets into fragments, all travelling into your chesl.

       I thought the original was not a mistake but was intended as a pun!   

       She WEARS the bandolier and vodka glasses, so her WEARS ;-)

       Where I live (the UK) the correct cellar temperature for UK-style bitters and ales is about 13 deg C, so cool not cold. It tastes best this way.

       Although not personally a beer drinker, It sounds like a top idea to carry a half carton of rum cans, as long as their icy cold, and it can carry a pack of smokes too. twas a bugger of a night when i could have used one of these, i got bogged 4 km's out of town, drunk/ barefoot, and dark, and one of these would have kept a hand free for me to throw rocks at the wallabies. two thumbs up mate!!

       Fair enough, each to his own beverage temperature!
