    Weird - Who packed their gun in a box of meat? Anyone?

    One of those bizarre things.

    The most disturbing part of the story though is... "Adding to officers' challenge: The meat, which was sent to Albertsons from Swift Packing Plant in Greeley, Colo., was packaged more than a year ago."

    I read about this last night, odd indeed. IIRC, it was also said that the employees had handled the weapon and pretty much took away the chances of forensic evidence being gathered.

    What a sad way for an 1911 .38 Super to end up.

    I would hope that if cleared by the authorities of being stolen or used in a crime, the finder would keep it.

    Let me guess. Swift is a no-guns company and announced it was conducting a search, so someone decided to "stash" his gun in a pile of hamburger?

    And I knew there was a reason I don't buy Albertson's meat. 18 mos old?

    I'm more concerned with the age of the meat than a gun in the box.

    My wife works at an Albertson's. I'll tell her to keep an eye out for free frozen firearms!

    I'm sure the guy had a hard time turning in the gun to police. Hopefully he gets to keep the gun if its just going to sit in an evidence locker.

    "A supermarket employee in Roswell, N.M., found an unexpected item in a case of frozen meat this week: a loaded handgun."

    It was undoubtedly intended for one of the aliens being held in Area 51. The box got mis-shipped to the grocery store instead of the alien detention center!

    So THAT'S where that went. Now if you can just find the AR I lost.

    i thought all food processors ran their products though a metal detector to find stray machine parts?

    This gives new meaning to the term "cold, hard steel"! You know that this means someone, somewhere is walking around with a steak in their holster.
