A Man and His Mug,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: BigMouth Inc The Gun Mug (Kitchen)
My current lover is a fire arms specialist, or something. He shoots a lot of guns and gets paid to do it. I had no idea what to get him for his birthday,and then I discovered this awesome treasure. I'm glad I did. He loved it. And of course, I had to use it too.
To address some concerns:
- The paint: I didn't notice any botchy paint.
- The durability: It hasn't broken or chipped, but it is clearly NOT a strong, heavy ceramic. It's quite light, and I imagine if you are too rough with it, it will break. Also, it doesn't appear to be bulletproof.
- The size: If you drink a lot of coffee or tea, you will refill this mug often. If you just have a cup in the morning, then it'll hold enough beverage.
- The logistics: Some dudes have complained that their fingers won't fit through the trigger hole. Mine fit fine (but I'm a woman). If your burly fingers cant fit, it's easy to grip it like normal, or just pinch the gun handle.
- The amusement: 5/5 stars. It's a gun mug! C'mon! If that isn't the most awesome idea ever, then, I wish you the best anyway.
And to think I almost got him a really nice pen.

is it microwave safe?

That is a good question... and I don't know the answer. I never nuked it, but most ceramic mugs are microwavable.

I've read a LOT of reviews but this was the only one where I not only laughed out loud but read it to my wife and she laughed hard too. Thanks for brightening my day almost three years after the fact. (-:

Angie, Thanks for a great review and updated! I bought this mug with french press coffee maker as gift for my father. This mug reminded him that I am a SON of THE GUN :) ...
Creeper Chicka: there are different sellers on amazon, please make sure you buy this mug directly from amazon! Their quality is much better than other sellers, and the mug can be microwave.

Thanks for the review. After reading a few negative ones, I though even if my hubby won't be able to use it for coffee, he can take it to his office and use as a pen holder! :) It is too cute.
