    The Stove..my favorite hiding place

    Sometimes job assignments force me into temporary apartment living and the drawer UNDER the oven is a good handgun hidey hole for me.

    Often I remove that drawer, put the handgun in and replace the drawer.

    Sorry no vid link...

    Since my wife likes to turn the oven on without looking inside to see if there is anythng there (pots, skillet etc.), I think the stove would be the last place I would place a handgun in my house.

    Now Ruger is going to put a new label on their guns in addition to the one already there.

    I don't get why you would need a gun hidden in the stove if you want a gun reachable at all times why not just carry? Was he scared he was going to get robbed cookin some bacon?

    On some stoves, the "drawer under the oven" is the broiler.

    But the important part is what temp was the oven set on?
    That could be important for all the Guns in Hot Cars threads.

    For the record, in the article, it was not the guy who put the gun in the stove who turned it on to use it.

    I wonder just how hot it got. Maybe a base plate melted and not the mag. A little better description would reveal more about just exactly what happened.



    I know a lady who used to keep a old S&W 357 in the freezer, but a stove?

    These stories provide argument ammo for the antis.

    "People need to be licensed to drive a car, they should have to be licensed to own a gun. I heard of a story where a guy put a gun in his stove and...blah, blah, blah...so we know that too many unqualified people have access to guns. Licensing will cut down on that drastically."

    I have a buddy that hid his pistols (4 of them) in a laundry basket that his wife had some old window curtains folded up in, down in the basement.

    One day, while he was at work, she gave the basket of curtains to the Goodwill.

    Man was he pissed. :D

    Actually it specifically states;

    May not be accurate, but the article does say that the man who stored the gun in the stove turned the stove on.

    So, no - You can't fix stupid.

    Storing a gun in a stove is stupid, but getting shot by an oven is downright embarrassing.

    Right. If the victim had not been in condition white, this never would have happened. One should always disassemble appliances to make sure family members, roomies, guests, elves, sprites or gnomes haven't stashed guns or explosives there.

    Maybe they were baking special brownies or something. I do wonder what the temp was before it melted and caused the mayhem.

    It happened at 3:30 am. How much you wanna bet there was alcohol involved?

    Drunks come home after the bars close & decide they wanna eat ...

    (from the voice of experience :D )
