An 18-year-old Florida woman was only slightly injured this week when she was shot by her friend’s oven, police said.

Aalaya Walker was visiting a friend in St. Petersburg Monday when they decided they wanted some late-night waffles, The Tampa Bay Times reported. So Walker began preheating the oven—unaware that her friend, JJ Sandy, 25, was storing a magazine from his .45-caliber Glock 21 in the oven.

The magazine exploded about 9 p.m. ET, spraying casing fragments at high speed and striking Walker. She managed to pick some of the fragments out of her leg and chest and then took a bus to the hospital, where she was treated and released. …

Who stores ammo in their oven? What does this idiot have stored under the logs in his fireplace?

Now comes the uncomfortabel questions for JJ:

Why would you keep* your magazine in the oven?

(*LEO will mostly likely use the word “hide” here but JJ is gonna squirm, me thinks.)

Storing your magazines in the oven is just stupid.

Actually, heating up your ammunition is a humanitarian idea. I knew a Sergeant Major who used nothing but tracers in his rifle. He said he did that because he had a big heart and wanted to cauterize the enemy’s wounds. One of the nicest men I ever met.

Didn’t the old (pre-electric) waffle irons have to be heated in the oven or on a stovetop?

An exploding round isn't particularly dangerous, at worse it will spray some casing fragments around. Dangers of exploding ammunition tend to be exaggerated. There are plenty of documented experiments involving cooking-off ammo is various situautions, including ovens.

A loaded gun stored in a oven is a different matter. If the round in the chamber goes off, it will likely send the bullet through the oven wall, and could hurt someone outside the oven.

You are quite right...i have seen shotgun shells tossed in fires with little more than explosive effect..birdshot and they tended to burn or pop

I grew up with waxed paper shotshells

Storing? As in, he put it there for safe keeping? What a maroon.

My husband turned the broiler on in his mother’s gas oven to toast English muffins one morning, unaware that his visiting aunt had left her girdle in the oven to dry overnight via the warmth of the pilot light. Burnning rubber makes a horrid smell!

Sandy wasn't charged because he had a proper concealed weapons permit, The Tampa Tribune reported.

Am I missing something? Of what relevance is a CC permit to this incident? It's not a license to be stoopid.

Since the oven didn't have a permit, will it be charged, or just euthanized?

i use a different one ~ flip handle and so forth ~ really neat ~ but lots of people keep frozen waffles around ~ some toast them in the oven and others use a toaster. Maggotwaving them leaves them soggy.

That's a running gag on the ABC sitcom The Middle. The Heck family uses their oven exclusively to store quilts and bedspreads. Until someone forgets and turns it on.

The same nut who buys a gun to carry concealed that has the ONLY safety on the TRIGGER!

There are PLENTY of videos on youtube of people shooting themselves with guns that have a “trigger safety”.

People are dumb...they defend the safety of carrying concealed a gun that was designed for holster use. (Nothing wrong with a trigger safety used in a holster that COVERS the trigger until gun is drawn)

Darwin effect. Now watch all the nuts defend their glocks. (and pit bulls, and driving without seat belts, etc ad nauseum)
