An 18-year-old Florida woman was only slightly injured this week when she was shot by her friends 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 ovenunaware 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.

Ovens don’t shoot people, but I’d nominate this article for the Headline of the Month award.
She didn’t even have to call the Amber Lamps.
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
not sure i would throw a .950 JDJ in the campfire as a lark..and at 40 bucks a shot
I agree now, mental bakground checks on oven holders.
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!
What idiot put a magazine in the oven besides an Obama supporter!
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.
Guns don’t jump off the shelf and shoot people, but who knew?
LOL, I thought this was one of those misleading headlines, where the poor person was shot while STANDING BY an oven But in this case, it was exactly as stated :-)
Well, didn’t some idiot say something about “An unloaded weapon is just as deadly?” or something like that. Gotta keep with the agenda,don’tcha yaknow?
Just the high-capacity ones at first, though.
Load and lock your waffle maker...........
The same kind who store eletronics in the microwave.
