    Why is this an Northern Indiana/Michigan thing to store your gun in the oven?

    A chick in Mishawaka did the same thing. Strange.

    Nice “Only Ones” story!

  3. mikee Says:

    Same thing goes for cats. Especially microwave ovens. Just don’t ask.

    If the rounds had killed his pregnant wife’s fetus then the headline might have been

    Hmm. I occasionally place my black powder guns in the oven at low temperature to help dry them (there’s some controversy on that method) after cleaning with hot water but they’re disassembled and for shit’s sake there’s never any powder in them.

  6. Les Jones Says:

    Also, don’t store money, liquor, drugs, or pets in an oven. HTH!

    It’s shit like this that gets us warning labels like “do not use hair dryer in the shower.”

    One of the comments on the original story was “If the gunpowder ignites in a cartridge that is not confined in any way, there is very little effect. The bullet pops out of the cartridge, but does not travel far, nor with much force.”

    This being so, one can assume that all the “bullets in the fire” stories are pure Hollywood?

    But . . . I once saw a major munitions dump go up. There was some metal flying. The rockets, mines, and grenades were easy to identify. I didn’t make any attempts to interview any of the rest to see if it was bullets or fragments.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
