    Let's start by saying I'm only 40 and in no immediate danger. I did loose my Father 2 years ago and it got me too thinking about my own funeral.

    Cremation is a must for me, can't stand the idea of slow decay but either option is boring and quite overdone.

    I heard an add on the radio for a company that prints politicians faces on clay pigeons. You can get BO, Pelosi, Palin, whoever you want and I thought, hey, why not have your Ashes pressed into clay pigeons so your buddies and kids could have a good time sending you off in style?

    Picture it, nice day, favorite gun club or shooting area, a thrower, a dozen shooting positions, and your closest friends and Familly scattering your ashes in style!:)

    Now to find someone who makes clays and see if I can Pre arrange the order!

    That's my idea, what are yours?

    I like your idea about the clay pigeons, sounds pretty cool.

    I want to be packed into a cannon, naked, and shot into Mt. Vesuvius :D

    I read where this guy who was integral to the design and development of disc golf had his ashes pressed into commemorative putters & sold to raise money for a foundation. It made me wonder about dildos and whether or not they would be willing to market one called "The GraveRobber".


    I believe i have seen ads for shotgun shells loaded with ashes of the recently passed.

    Holy Smokes!: "Custom" Company Puts Cremated Remains in Ammo
    One Pound of ash is enough to produce 250 shotshells.

    Load me up! Give them to my wife and daughters. Any man mistreat them and I'll be in their azz instead of on it.

    Oookay.
    I only asked my brother-in-law and a sister to bury me with my first hi-power service competition rifle, an M1A. There's no doubt but that they'd steal it and so it isn't in their future anymore however.

    I 'spose I should make the balance of arrangements for everyone's sake, eh?

    I will go by way of cremation, as has my three sons and a brother. To the 'primordial ocean' I go released.

    Yep, you could be shot out of your shotgun with shotgun shells.

    I prefer cremation. I don't want to be taking up any land space. As for the ashes, I don't really care. Dump them under the pine tree in my back yard. *shrugs*

    Perhaps your ashes could be combined with some herbicide & dumped on those pesky woody weeds of yours? ;)

    Those Holy Smokes shells look like a great idea as well. All 4 of my kids will inherit a shotgun. It would be pretty cool to have some ashes loaded into 4 boxes of 00 buck for thier home deffence load.

    Daddy still protecting them, even in death! That's Cool!

    As a life-long plumber, I would like my ashes to be flushed. That way my final ride would be through some of the pipes I laid. I do like to lay pipe......
