Long story short. I can’t remember where I put a gun! Was photographing the pistols, and for the life of me one is missing! It wasn’t where it was supposed to be, but I have a vague memory about stuffing it someplace else. Maybe. To late and tired to start a Second search.

Never firearms but other stuff, hoo-boy. A guy should have duplicate yard tools, right?

Yes

Could not find my 581 22, thought I must have laid it down next to the shooting bench when I was shooting seaveral guns and left it there when done, went back seaveral days after I noticed it was gone and it wasn't there ( private range not many people shoot there) checked with a few guys that use it but no saw my gun. About to month later I pulled the truck into the garage got out and looked over at the wall where I had seaveral sheets of left over sheet rock leaning looked behind it and there was my 581, wife and I were going to town and I didn't want to take it into the house and didn't want to leave it in truck so I hid it behind the sheet rock and then forgot I put it there.

I hide things in plain sight and still lose them! My problem is seeing something I will need for a future project, buy it on sale and when it comes time to do the project forget about the first purchase and buy another. Did that recently with a tube of liquid nails.

Have a PPK that was missing for almost 3 years, wife hid the valuables around the house when we were leaving for a couple of weeks. After a year I was sure it was in our Explorer we sold.
As a side note there must 50 rolls of Teflon plumbers tape in the house, whenever I need 1 thereís none to be found. There might be a mouse with the slickest nest ever.

Well at least Iíll have friends in the nursing home the first clue we had that my father-in-law was loosing it was when we cleaned up his garage and found 13 can openers. When asked he said yeah I keep on loosing the darn things. PS , this was his 1911, that is mia, we had his best friend remove his guns so he wouldnít go Junior Soprano on me when we came to visit. He never liked me! Somehow I ended up with them and thatís how my obsession with guns was rekindled. I got a 1911, a Makarov, a shotgun, and an Anschutz jr Varminter. Iím going to go look for the 1911 right now!

I've "lost" my sunglasses on top of my head and a couple of small items in pockets before. Had a concealed setup that was comfortable enough I forgot I was wearing it....until I plopped down in a chair and got prodded in the ribs.

No, when it comes to guns there is a place for everything. I am forgetful, so; I am extra careful with the serialized firearms. Parts and special tools are another story.

Did you know that The TC R55 rifles have a storage place in the butt that is built to hold a spare magazine? After shooting at the range one time I opened the door and wondered if my magazine fit in there, it did so I left it thinking that way it won't get lost. Quite a while later when I went to get it ready for squirrel season I couldn't find my magazine, looked everywhere but no luck. After 2 months of searching I found one on eBay. $75 later it was ready to go. I was heading to the range and noticed the compartment in the butt again, I felt pretty stupid.

Had an old gentleman (80+) in the Club who kept his rifle bolt & rifle at home in seperate places as a security measure.

One afternoon, he arrives at the range with a worried look, asking a few people if they had seen a rifle bolt lying around. Apparently he'd started to get his match rifle ready for a range trip and could'nt find the bolt anywhere. After a good search with no success, he went back home to report the loss to the local police (a requirement here in the UK).

About a week later he arrives at the range with a big smile and his rifle bolt in hand.

It turns out his wife was putting clothes away after washing and found the rifle bolt in her underwear drawer

Nobody had the heart to ask how it might have got in there.

At a recent benchrest shoot, I ran up and down the firing line looking for my misplaced ear muffs. Everyone just smiled and said "nope, haven't seen them". Finally found them on top of my head.

I misplaced an H&R 38 break-open revolver once. When I bought my house in 1992, I built a work bench in the garage and bolted it to the wall. I put two roll-away toolboxes under it. Found the gun sitting on top of one of the toolboxes (under the bench top, close to the wall) when I was getting ready to sell the house in 2018.

I have two gun safes. I usually put every gun back in the same place. A day after a range trip, I went to get one of my carry guns.....it wasn't there! I got that "kicked in the stomach" feeling and strained my brain trying to recall if I had it when I left the range. After panicking for a few minutes rifling through the safe, I opened the other safe. There it was! Big 'ol sigh of relief!

I never did that again!
