We were featured on ABC's SHARK TANK!!

Bottle Breacher is one of the fastest growing Veteran Owned and Operated businesses in Arizona. Former Navy SEAL, Eli Crane, and his wife Jen brought to Shark Tank their sole product of the recycled, authentic decommissioned .50 caliber Bottle Breacher, manufactured in a one car garage. Having enticed Sharks’ Mark Cuban and Kevin O’Leary to invest, today we feature an ever expanding product line serving customers both domestically and internationally.

We aim to provide the best hand crafted, personalized man-gifts, groomsman gifts and corporate/promotional products on the market. Our mantra is built on our Made in the USA promise driven by the belief that it is our duty to serve those who serve us. With our success, we donated to hundreds of non-profits over the last 5 years, helping to support Military Veterans, Active Military Personnel, First Responders, and various other non-profits.

The owners of Bottle Breacher have been married over 16 years. They still run the business together today and love to hire vets and reinvest in those that have served. Open your next cold one in style!

- Engraving includes 1 line of text up to 25 characters including spaces. This excludes keychains. Keychain engraving is 1 line of text up to 10 characters including spaces. If your order has an engraving request of more than what is allocated it will be pulled from production and could result in a delay in shipping. Second line and double-sided engraving is offered seasonally, please convo us if you are interested.

- Please clearly indicate what you want engraved on each of your Bottle Breachers and personalized gift boxes (If you purchased one). The shop will spell as you indicate. Text will be engraved in ALL CAPS (**Except for Script, which is our cursive font**) and will be engraved in the same font size. For example, if you request CoreLocationX you will receive CORELOCATIONX. The longer the text the smaller the engraving will look. In the Note to Seller box at check out please leave your engraving instructions. Be sure to check spelling, do not leave in paragraph form, and press enter between lines. For example:

Bullet 1: Groom
Bullet 2: Happy Father’s Day
Bullet 3: Merry Christmas

Line 1: Merry Christmas
Line 2: Love, Jennifer

Line 1: Molonado Wedding
Line 2: September 16, 2018
Line 3: Tucson, Arizona

Personalized Engraved Box Listing can be found here:

- Because our Breachers are made by more than one engraver, all Breachers will not look the same. An order placed this month might vary from an order placed last month. If you need your engraving to look the same for a wedding order or for multiple gifts please order them at the same time.

- The Red/Blue Breachers will have some slight visible imperfections under the coating due to being decommissioned once fired bullets.

We strive to offer over-the-top customer service and want every customer happy with their purchase. Should you for any reason not be satisfied, please convo us within 5-7 business days of receiving your order.

Due to processing time, we cannot honor change requests to orders after purchase. Please make sure to double check and carefully review your order before submitting. We process orders almost immediately after being placed.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices. Nathan should then go on to include information on the following:

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

Business transfers. If we sell or merge my business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We generally keep your data for the following time period: 5 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, We may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.

Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.

Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Nicole Mackey, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at nicolem [!at] Alternately, you may mail me at:
