I've published many stories about tombstones and memorials for cremated ashes, but I'm not sure I can recommend this one. Holy Smoke, based in Stockton, Alabama, boasts a "tribute to your outdoorsman or woman like no other," according to their website. The same website also states, "Now, you can continue to protect your home and family even after you are gone."
For a price, Holy Smoke will turn your deceased loved one’s ashes into bullets. For $1,250, they will turn one pound of human ash into your choice of 250 shotgun shells, 100 rifle cartridges, or 250 pistol cartridges. For an additional $100 per box, you can also get “mantle-worthy, finished, wooden handcrafted boxes with labels.”
Holy Smoke states, "We offer a way to honor your deceased loved one by giving or sharing with him or her one more round of clay targets, one last bird hunt, or one last stalk hunt."
Holy Smoke offers discounts to active duty and retired military, law enforcement and fire fighters.
