    Here's another non gun related one but I SWEAR it really happened.

    Back when I first bought my Toyota 4x4 I put a camper top on it so I could stow my camping gear safely. Well, a guy I worked with came out at lunch one day to look it over and said ....

    You oughtta put one of those ovulating fans in there to keep it cooled off.

    I just sort of hung my head and tried to not to laugh. Believe it or not, he said stuff like that on a regular basis .... yep, he was a supervisor.

    Okay, this isn't a malapropism but still funny. My father in law picks up my (bone stock) SKS the other day, looks at the open sights and comments 'Nice Scope'. Of course this was after he looked down the barrel of my .357 and asked 'this ain't loaded is it'. Needless to say, we unload and lock up all firearms when he comes over. I love my wife dearly but her family needs help...

    If you talk trash while you shoot your 1911 your thumb might get cut by your snide.

    Police reports indicate that the church window was shot with hallowed-point bullets.

    I keep getting hit in the face when I shoot...do I need a new erector?

    Check out how smooth this one shoots...just slides into buttery every time.

    I haven't read any caliber war threads in ages...I just got tired of bullistics.

    Years ago, my dear wife called Condos "condoms" or "condo-NINNY-ums
    When she spoke, using those terms, I sorta ducked my head, and turned away slightly. Ohhhhhhh the embarrasment of it all!

    More good stuff - nice ones Chad too!

    Thinking of not entirely gun ones reminds me of a dear fella who I am teaching to fly RC planes. He comes up with a few maloprop's but the two I remember are - ''Have I set up the airelons properly'', and - he asked me - ''Are you gonna do some more aerobics today?" (airobatics!).
