In time for Valentine's Day: Bullet-shaped flash drive
Presumably intended for gun enthusiasts or Second Amendment supporters, Active Media is rolling out a .22-caliber shaped flash drive. Want more firepower? Active also offers .50-cal.

The tech trinket comes from Active Media Products and is presumably marketed for the NRA crowd or those people who, maybe as a result of the glut of bad teen-horror TV programming, fear werewolf attacks.
"The Bullet-2 drive is the ultimate USB drive because it is rugged, reliable, waterproof, dust-proof," Active Media wrote in a press release. This new drive retails for about $14 at Amazon for a 4GB model and $21 for the 8GB.
At a time when the country has been rocked recently by high-profile gun violence, one might think Active Media's marketing department would have put the kibosh on a release now. But apparently bullet-shaped USB drives are a hot commodity.
Before the .22-caliber model, the company offered a drive shaped like a .50 caliber bullet.
