  • 18 month old ribs..... Mmmmmm tasty.

    But, hey..it comes with a loaded gun!
  • Yeah, the gun thing was by far the least interesting part of this story. With as many guns as we have here in the US one was bound to show up in a pack of ribs eventually.

    It was the June 8, 2011 thing that screwed with my head. I always assume my ribs were from cows butchered at least within the last 6 months, not over 18 months ago. Now I am wondering whether the ground beef in my freezer is Obama beef or Bush beef. This is seriously farking with my head.
  • Stockboy trying to sell a gun to a coworker and stashes it as his manager walks into the freezer?

    When I worked at a grocery store, a lot of shady stuff happened in the freezers. Mostly drinking inventory and smoking weed.

    I live in WA. Smoking weed in the grocery story freezer is no longer shady here. How weird is that?

    Yet another think farking with my head.
  • Somebody somewhere is kicking themselves yelling "So thats where I left it!"
  • Seriously?!?!?! If I open up a pack of meat and find a nice pistol, not to mention ammo to go with it (altho I might just trash the ammo and get new), I'm thinking Merry F'n Xmas to ME!!! I bought it, got a prize like it was Cracker Jacks!!!

    "It was the June 8, 2011 thing that screwed with my head."

    Something isn't right there. The company I worked for until recently sold equipment to that facility and I've dealt with several people there over the years. No way did product that old sit around. They are very tight on that sort of thing. One bad batch of meat and they are out millions. Perhaps it sat in the supermarkets distribution center for that long?

    It'll probably still get you fired.
  • i'm going with the date being a typo or if not then someone stashed that case knowing the gun and ammo were in it. one of you can hypothesis how it got to the store.
  • FTA: Authorities say the semi-automatic Rock Island Armory .38 Super had not been reported stolen

    Semi-automatic .38, as opposed to the full-auto or revolver .38? Nice reporting!

    Then in a couple years your questioned by police for having a gun used in a murder.
  • ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico authorities say they're puzzled by what turned up in a package of meat at a Roswell grocery store.

    OK, so what are the chances the gun ISN'T FROM THIS PLANET?!??!?

    This is why I deal with a real butcher that buys meat from local farmers.

    Costs more, but fresh, grass fed beef tastes better.
  • I know it isn't nothing like CSI or NCIS here, but the article says a gun check could take weeks. Now if you go in for a job and they can do an instant background check on you, wouldn't you think there would be a similar system for firearms just enter the serial number and you have results within minutes. Of course if the number has been filed off, you would then have to resort to ballistics which I understand could take weeks. Didn't see a mention in the story if the number was gone or not.

    /and yes it is odd that the meat was packaged almost a year an half ago. that part does make the story more intriguing than finding a gun packed inside it.

    Sometimes I hate browsing on a tablet...

    /that was with "request desktop site" set as default
    //AND after specifically refreshing the desktop url
    ///I'll just assume it was a gun made out of meat. That sounds amusing.

    Are you being sarcastic or genuine?
  • Sgt. Preston in Roswell, NM? I now have an image in my mind of a Canadian Mountie dissecting an alien corpse.

    The only .38 Super Rock Island makes is a 1911 Clone.

    Yeah, it was actually very nice reporting. Usually reporters just call all firearms "assault weapon". Giving us an actual accurate description is practically unheard of, and is a huge step up from the usual crappy reporting we get on firearm related incidents.

    Also, he was describing the FIREARM, not the AMMUNITION. So your statement makes no sense.

    Also, there are a few kinds of .38 revolver ammo anyway, so your statement makes even less sense.

    I'm a gunsmith and I find no problems with it. Then again I also know you're not going to find a stock revolver in .38 Super ;)
