    The Bisley Budweiser Beer Bottle Opener, revisited

    My two Bisleys. For newer viewers here's the old pictures, too, of my long barreled .44 Special when it was a bulged barrel .32-20 being used to open a Budweiser beer bottle as described by Skeeter Skelton. He wrote that when he was a kid a "Portales", N.M. merchant showed him this. I tried it just once and it works perfect, though mine were twist offs. Can you see the barrel bulge?

    My dad showed me this trick when I was a kid, only he used a Coke and not a Bud.

    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.

    This was a trick post, right?

    I readily recalled the original article, but I live near Nogales, and in New Mexico it ain't. Checking the original article, I see the Bisley/Budweiser affectionado lived in Portales, NM. Not a big issue. More important is, what automobiles currently have steering columns long enough to accommodate a holstered Bisley?

    We need beer and soda bottle caps to be made of plastic so they will not damage the Bisley's steel!!

    Right. It was Portales". I'll go change it. Wonder where Nogales came from?

    Beside using a SAA as a hammer I now see it has other uses.

    I agree. But how does opening beer bottles bulge the barrel????

    I wish there were so many Bisleys around, that you would not feel bad- if you opened a beer bottle with um'.

    In Tom Rynning's book "Gun Notches" he talks about using the butt of a SAA to grind coffee beans.

    Dang the old days were rough...

    I have lived out west in NM and AZ for 30 years. There are rocks everywhere to grind beans with (the indians did). But it is tough to find a rock with the right shape to open a beer bottle. So we would just shoot the top off.
