Sowing Seeds by Shooting Shotgun Shells

Folks have created 12 gauge shells with unique loads for years.  I’ve seen bolos, teargas, flechette darts, whistles, tracers, and even the ashes of a deceased family member in order to scatter the remains on a fun range day after a funeral.  However, these shotgun “seeds” seem like a pretty fun gardening tool!

According to this FlowerShell they plan to sell these at an overpriced $50 for 4 shells.  Their site also comes with a political statement that “regular shells kill, flowershell gives life”.  They obviously don’t know that hunting sustains life for humans.

Nevertheless, it’s a great idea for reloaders who could toy with their own loads.  I’d love to see a time-lapse video of the flowers growing after being “planted”.

Now if you excuse me, I think I need to plant a few rows of crops with my TTI Benelli M2.

    So…how much trouble am I going to get in for shooting these in my yard because of the city ordinance stating you are not supposed to shoot weapons in the city limits?

    “I swear, officer, I was just planting seeds in my garden!”

    This is a GREAT home defense load…….
    Just think, even if they dont catch the crooks immediately after the crime, the police lineup would be something like this.
    you: Yes officer those ARE the guys! officer: ARE YOU SURE? you: ABSOLUTELY, I was loaded with pink daffodils that night and I see them sprouting out of their A**es right now!!
    Or better yet, if you’re lucky enough to rid the world of the crooks, you have been thoughtful in advance and sent them along WITH flowers…..
