In an electric oven:
So 20 min at 400 F is too hot for a Sig… I wonder if my Glocks could handle that. I better try it. *facepalm*
Why someone would opt to use an oven rather than a rag is beyond me.
Any of you guys ever seen (or done) something similar?
Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Authorities said a woman was injured in an accidental shooting Sunday at a store that specializes in hunting and fishing gear in Rancho Cucamonga.
The incident happened at 3:45 p.m. at the Bass Pro Shop when a customer brought two of his own guns to the shop to use at the indoor firing range.
As he was checking in the weapons at the front door to verify that they were unloaded and to be trigger-locked, a bullet discharged within the carrying case and struck a customer standing in an aisle about 70 feet away, according to a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

Another report with some different info – HERE
From the 2nd article:
The 52-year-old man, whose name wasn’t released, was checking in the weapons at the front desk when he noticed one of the guns had the hammer cocked. He reached for the .45-caliber weapon and it fired.
Ugh… retard. Try unloading the gun before putting a trigger lock on it. The owner of the guns is lucky that woman didn’t get hit in a vital area and die. My guess is he is going to be in a lot of trouble anyway, rightfully so. We don’t need carelessness like that in the gun community.
It’s funny how both articles make it sound as if the gun just decided to “go off” on its own.
The two reports are a bit different:
- The first article states that the woman was about 70 ft away when she got hit… and the 2nd article states she got hit from 40 yards away ( 120 ft ) (BIG Difference)
- The first article states that the gun discharged within a carrying case… the 2nd article states the gun fired on its own through a bag.
- The second article says the round penetrated the woman’s clothing but didn’t penetrate her skin, and then the round fell to the floor.
Who knows what’s right and what isn’t…
In hindsight ( hehe ) that lady can laugh at the fact her ass stopped a .45 caliber round. Only less in magnitude to the mighty 10mm as far as the gun community is concerned. The hardcore .45 supporters would have laughed their asses off if the bullet that struck the woman and failed to penetrate was a 9mm.
“Mysterious” street signs appearing all over the U.S.
They seem to be playing both sides when it comes to guns:

I wonder if they can get in trouble for doing this? I think its a neat idea, but it would get pretty distracting if everyone was allowed to put up gag signs everywhere.
I am not anti-war, I thought these ads were neat though… very interesting concept.
The following 4 posters are designed to wrap around poles, campaigning for an end to the Iraq war.

They really need to bring ads like this back. The 2nd amendment of the constitution hasn’t changed, why should gun advertising be so radically different?
Hat Tip: Today’s Inspiration
R Lee Ermey from the History Channel show Lock & Load:
Making your own:
What I Did:
I started off with my favorite set of ear plugs The Com-fit AB corded ear plugs. DB 26 rating.
Then took my Px4 outside and fired 2 rounds into the hillside as to retrieve 2 spent .40 s&w casing (winchester 165 gr target ammo; 100 rnds $30 @ walmart). all my other brass i pawned at the gun shop for a few bucks.
Took a small nail; and hammer (because im too lazy to dig out my fathers reloading equipment) and gently taped, from the inside, removing the primer from both shells.
using a drill bit fed into the hole in the ear plug (ment for the cord) and put the ear plug into the casing, bit thru the primer hole, and filled it with hot glue from a glue gun. (WARNING CASING WILL BECOME HOT; use a vice or gloves when doing this step)
now on the .40 i had to drill the primer hole out a slight bit as it was too small for the cord to fit through. i then threaded the cord in thru the rear of the casing and viola…. spent casing ear plugs. novelty and hearing protection brought together as one.
Note: cord is NOT needed; but helpful to keep from loosing them. Also it helps secure the ear plug into the casing as it might slide back out after the glue settles (in testing it was rare but did happen; some super glue on top of this wouldn’t go amiss; however with the cord i don’t have that problem at all)
