    The silly things some people beleive!

    This will make you laugh.

    A couple of weeks ago I was at the range, shooting with a few others. Really, we were shooting the breeze more than the targets. So, a few of us were standing around, stomping our feet , rubbing our hands and complaining about the cold weather. It was in the high 20’s, so we weren’t all THAT cold.

    One guy was saying that he really missed the heated seat in his car. Another fellow, whom I don’t know very well – a doctor, I think, shook his head vigorously and said, in all seriousness, that he would NEVER use the seat heater in his SUV. The first guy looked at him questioningly and asked why not. The second said, “Well, I carry my gun on my belt. I wouldn’t want the bullets to get hot and explode.”

    The rest of us got really warm laughing about THAT!

    And people wonder why I interview doctors before they treat me.

    A friend of my roommate who had a super secret private sector job (which turned out to be nothing more than a bail bondsman) was telling me about his 350 grain 9mm +P ammunition that they only give to government agents.

    Aside from the fact that the "bullet" isn't the part that "explodes"

    I wonder if "doc" was scared and misled by a large spot in his seat that made him think the heater had gotten his pistol hot enough to start leaking excessive oil and worried that a round cooking off would be next - when, in fact, the heater had only caused premature melting of a suppository

    The difference between doctors and God...

    The last couple trips to the range, I have placed my loaded SA XD40 SC on the bench facing the target and then back off and wait. With all of the guns in the news going off all by theirselves, and the apparent accuracy they have, I want to see what mine will do!

    I would have thought the mythbusters episode where they put bullets in the oven would be sufficient to bust this myth.

    Not to be a spelling Nazi, but its not beleive. It is spelled believe. I just thought it was ironic considering the topic of the thread, and is the only reason I'm pointing the mistake out along with the trick to remember how to spell it. Otherwise, I would have just fixed it and not said anything. Believe that.
