shot-bandolier

If Chewbacca had known about this, he would have had no need to visit a cantina. The 36 Shot Glass Bandolier holds 36 bullet-shaped one-ounce shot glasses, each with their own lock caps.

I played guitar off-and-on for about ten years, but I gave up my musical aspirations once I realized my fingers just weren’t made for rapid chord progressions.

Every exoskeleton concept we’ve seen has been made for adults. What about the children? What about their fragile bones and muscles?
