    So I stopped in a local gun shop yesterday, just looking:D


    What do I see over the counter, but a S&W Sigma and it was MELTED!:what:

    It seems that mom wanted to hide it from the kids & since the oven was broken she hid it in the drawer under teh oven. Well as luck would have it the repair man came & fixed the oven and the pilet light flame MELTED the side of the polymor frame and melted the trigger down to a nub.:banghead::banghead:

    Now at least thats the story she told. You should have herd the dealer trying to explain the damage to Smith.

    In some people's opinoin that is the best thing you could do to a Sigma :neener:

    I've also read of a LEO who did that to a Glock.

    Don't Hide Your Gun in the Oven

    CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago police say two children were injured when a loaded handgun hidden inside an oven discharged when the stove was heated for cooking.
    Twenty-four-year-old Anthony Smith has been charged with two counts of endangering the life of a child.
    Police spokesman Marcel Bright says Smith apparently had hidden the gun in the oven.
    The injured children's sister was cooking Friday afternoon when the gun went off. A 4-year-old boy is in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the leg. His 12-year-old brother was struck on the forehead by a fragment from the gun. He has been treated and released.
    Smith, a convicted felon on parole, also was charged with unlawful use of a weapon.
    It was not immediately clear if Smith was represented by an attorney.
