    SEVEN ROUNDS! OH HEAVEN HELP US! Great sensationalism in the video.

    That'd be a tough find to turn over to the cops. I'm trying to imagine the guy who let it slip out of his holster as he bent over the box (or however it happened). "AH, SON OF A...."

    If it weren't from Colorado, I'd say it's the perfect plot point for a Scorcese movie.

    Meat packers, handguns, mystery...

    Article I read said the box from the packing plant was dated June 2011. Remind me never to get meat from that store.

    I would have put the gun in my waistband and taken it home.

    To bad, so sad. Finders keepers!

    Yep!

    Step one. Initiate subtle finders keepers dance and slink off to the car.

    Step two. Hot gun search. You don't want to be a part of that don't picture.

    "So Todd, tell us again how you happened to come in contact with this particular pistol?"

    "Really! It was in a rump roast!"

    "I guess you're gonna stick to that story then?"

    Maybe it was bear meat. Was the front sight filed off?

    So disappointed. I thought this thread was about a gun that fired frozen meat.

    If you consider the current price per pound for the beef, that would put the cost of the gun at something on the order of $15 to $50.

    Of course the ATF at your backyard BBQ may be unanticipated consequences.

    LOL

    And here I thought the line was "take the cannoli,leave the gun".

    Guess it was a rump roast after all.

    Funny, I almost went there too but thought it was another poorly worded title that related to testing ballistics on frozen meat - like Rocky.


    "take the cannoli,leave the gun". Why does that make me chuckle every time I see him say it? The casual nature, priorities?

    One of the guys I used to work with found a Ruger Blackhawk next to the highway. Turned out to be a stolen gun that was subsequently used in a homicide. Paperwork, time spent with the DA, and a couple of days off work to go to the trial. Would have been a heck of a lot less hassle if he would have just taken it home.

    I'm reminded of a certain aircraft maker who wanted to see how well their aircraft windshields could withstand large bird strikes. They developed a cannon that would shoot packaged supermarket turkeys at the windshields under test. The cannon worked too well it seemed. Every turkey blasted right through the heaviest windshields that they could design.

    One night, frustrated after being unable to figure the problem out, one of their engineers shouted, "Why are these turkeys so totally defeating every windshield design we have?" The janitor, overhearing the lament, asked, "Maybe you should thaw the turkeys first."

    While I was in school for aviation maintenance an instructor told me about this, and it became a dream job of mine, haha.

    I read that the pistol was actually in a box, inside the box of ribs? And from what I've heard about the employee population where that meat-packing plant is, I'm not surprised that a gun was involved. Most likely that gun was supposed to be retrieved from that box of ribs by someone else, somewhere else. I'd bet it was being sent from one homie to another, and homie #2 missed the box. I'd also bet that the box of ribs was "marked" somehow to ID it.

    My dad worked for Pratt and Whitney for years. Not sure if it is true but he claims that they used a frozen chicken cannon to test their engines, not the windshields.

    I wouldn't want to be in that position. When I worked for U-Haul, back in 1990, I used to find small sacks of weed in the trucks that were turned in.
    I informed the store manager and let him deal with it.
    There was no way I was going to get involved in that, for $6.50/hour.

    This baffles me. If I found something that looked like a family heirloom, or something engraved with someone's name on it, something sentimental, etc. I'd turn it in in a heartbeat. But a 1911? If you let that thing fall into a pack of meat you all but deserve to have it taken from you. That thing would be in my truck and being taken to the range before the meat thawed.

    It didn't fall in the box of meat, it was placed in there. The pistol was inside it's own box, inside a large box of frozen ribs. And the box of ribs was dated back in 2011, yet was just recently delivered! So, it's a mystery. I still say Jefe was sending the pistol to his cousin Alejandro.
