    Woman shot by oven while trying to cook waffles - U.S. News

    So I can't imaging why a person would keep his pistol in a drawer, but the mag in the oven. Guest preheated the oven to make some waffles and Kaboom.

    Funny thing is if you read the article the writer states that "Gun and ammunition references indicate that Glock bullets can explode at temperatures as low as 280 degrees — or even lower if they've been exposed to heat for a long time, which can degrades the structure." I didn't know Glock made bullets.:laugh:

    Like the guy that used a .22 round as a fuse in his pickup, round heated up, discharged and shot one of his testicles. You can't fix stupid

    What a maroon. It's really difficult to shove a .22 in there without bending the terminals. He shoulda been using .17.

    Cooked off rounds generally don't go anywhere as there is no chamber or barrel to contain and direct the bullet.

    I would be flat amazed a cooked off .45ACP round (even if it is of Glock manufacture LOL) could muster the directional energy to even break the heavy glass in an Oven door and no way to make it through the two+ layers of steel and glass wool insulation.

    Actually a bullet through that guy's balls is fixing stupid...or at least a good start. ;)

    This guy wasn't charged because he had a concealed permit? I don't understand that part. What does a CHP have to do with storing rounds in the oven?

    Natural selection at work trying to weed him out of the gene pool.

    Maybe he was hiding them in the waffle iron.

    The article states, "Glock bullets can explode."

    Interesting, I just reread the article, and you are right. It doesn't say "Glock bullets," but when I posted, the quote was click and pasted over. So the original article must've been corrected.

    Originally, it said, "Gun and ammunition references indicate that Glock bullets can explode at temperatures as low as 280 degrees — or even lower if they've been exposed to heat for a long time, which can degrades the structure."

    I am lead to believe that alcohol was involved.

    A) Late night waffles.
    B) Only 4 rounds in 17 round magazine.
    C) Magazine in oven.
    D) This happened in Florida.

    I almost missed out on contributing to the gene pool as a child. When I was 9 years old my friend went into the work room in his basement. We found that amongst various screws in a can, there were .22's in there too.

    We thought long and hard on what to do with our new found discovery, and like the upstanding 9 and 8 year olds we were at the time, decided the best thing to do would be to take one of the bullets and start hitting the casing with a hammer. Sure enough after about the 10th hit, the bullet shot off and ricocheted around the room, somehow not hitting one of us.
