    Well, i just had an interesting thing happen. My car was left in the sun all day (south florida), and when i got out of work i went to the bank. I have a KT PF9 that i keep in the center consol of my car. The inside of the car after being in the sun all day was hot, but i had no idea it made my gun so hot.

    Sitting in the parkinglot of the bank, i move the pf9 to the IWB holster that is almost always on my back. I am not wearing an undershirt. With my body's position inside the car..the slide was not touching any skin, and i had not touched it with my hand yet, as i move the gun into the holster with my hand properly on the polymer grip, with my finger covering the trigger guard.

    I then got out of my car and stood up... :fire::fire::fire::fire::cuss::cuss::cuss::cuss:


    Dear god it burned of a thousand fires. Once the slide touched my skin it felt like i was being branded. I was already out of my car with people around so i did everything i could to keep my composure. I kept walking into the bank thining..."anytime now, the heat will disipate and it wont hurt anymore."

    I was wrong, it was burning me as i walked all the way in, filling out the deposit slip, standing in line, at the front....only on my way out did i start to feel it cool off.

    Anyway thats my story. Pretty stupid, but now i have a slide-shaped burn on my lower back, lol.

    Things i learned:

    -I would rather it burn for a bit, than need a gun and not have it.

    -I am happy with the way i took the pain, and kept my composure.

    -Florida is hot.


    That is all. :)

    lol. Funny story.

    So the sun wasn't shining on the gun? It absorbed the heat while inside the center console. Man it must of been real hot inside that car.

    What have we learned:

    (1) Black absorbs heat.

    (2) Don't "go commando" when going commando, particularly with an IWB. :neener:

    Amazing how much heat that little sucker can hold, right? :eek:

    I've done that, but with a 1911. :eek: Fortunately, no scars.

    Hey, you could always move to the "free" state of Il. It is in the mid 50s here. And you don't have the option of the brand anyway.

    Back in the 60's when transistor radios first came out we got one (in black, of course). We were taking a road-trip to Cape Cod and got out somewhere with the radio on the dash.

    When we got back to the car there was a black amorphous blob on the dash. Forgetting about the radio (and not recognizing it) we asked "Hey Dad, what's that?"

    For the past 40-something years I've been keenly aware of what could happen to objects left on the dash or seats in a car in direct sunlight, even in the northern climes of New England.

    Good luck explaining to your better half that you aren't in some weird cult that brands inductees. :evil:

    To answer the question: Yes, this was IN the center consol, which is in the black dash though.

    Here is what im talking about, its a 350z.

    Same happened to me in Central Ohio this last weekend... left a 1911 in the center console overnight and into the next day with temperatures in the high 80s... reached in to grab it, it was hotter than I have ever felt it before.. it was like the barrel after numerous rounds at the range. I was surprised the CT grips still worked.

    I live in Florida too! Do you have the darkest legal tint shade to your car? It really does help cool down your interiors.

    hmmm.... a butt holster would be an excellent way to go commando while going commando. I'm not sure if anybody makes one though.

    Hey, Jim in Anchorage; it's the gators, bugs and snakes that keeps people in Florida. They do have lots more bikini and thong action, though. And grabbing a cold gun at wrong temp can wake you up !

    Keltecbutt....a new syndrome.:D

    I have the opposite problem in the winter time. I'm not a huge fan of putting a 20 degree slide against my skin, and that big hunk of metal takes a while to change temperature.
