If youre looking for a safer way to shoot Jager Bombs, Michael Cooks invention could appeal to you.

The Olathe man created Magna-Shot Bomb Sets that use magnets to secure the shot glass to the pint glass for bomb shots. The idea came to Cook when he and some friends were heading to a New Years Eve party a few years ago.
It seems that everyone knew someone who had been hit in the mouth with a sliding shot glass as they did a bomb shot, Cook said. One woman had chipped a tooth.
Cook decided magnets embedded in both the shot and pint glasses could make them safer. Once connected, drinkers can imbibe bomb shots such as Boilermakers or Irish Car Bombs without shot glasses sliding back into their faces. Cook prototyped the sets in 2011, secured a provisional patent in February and began selling to individuals and local bars in November.
Magna-Shot Bomb Sets come with four 1.5-ounce shot glasses and four 15-ounce pint glasses for $44.95 at Magna-Shot.com. They should be washed by hand using mild dishwashing soap and water.
