Shouldn't you have been "pistoling" through the safe?

For several years I looked for a Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum that I have no recollection of disposing of, recent events prove it is not in the house, so..... well just so, no idea where it is.

Those didn't exist back then, don't think they come in 100 packs anyway.

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.


I was at the public range when I got a call from one of the good ol' boys that had been there earlier in the day. He asked if there was a rifle case on the table behind me. Had I been thinking a little more quickly I would have said, "yep, an empty case here. Yours?"

I lost track of a Ruger Security Six Target model for ages. I hid it all too well before I had a gun safe.

Used to stash my Jennings J-22 in the garage. Reached up onto where it was hidden and it wasn't there. Forget I moved it upstairs. Took a few minutes before calm set in.

I've reviewed my logs and there are a couple rifles I need to make contact with again. We shut down for 10 days around Christmas and New Years. One of those days will be used to empty out safes and closets and update my records.

Low-expense Heritage .22LR revolver. Turned up missing at the barn. Looked everywhere with no luck. My wife uses it to "encourage" our younger horse to come in for the evening meal when he doesn't respond quickly enough - pretty much a starter pistol...

Nonetheless, she commented that it was missing and we looked everywhere for it, with no success. Was getting ready to report it stolen when my wife postulated that perhaps our younger horse may have knocked it into our four-hole cattle trough (she would often times rest it on the trough while latching the gate). Sure as heck, there it was, under three feet of water and had been there for several days.

I retrieved it, took off the nice laminated grips that weren't really laminated anymore, baked all the metal in a toaster oven enough to ensure it was completely dry, then did some serious cleaning, scrubbing, and rust protection. There wasn't any rust, but the barrel finish took a hit. The grips were dried out and subjected to a vice to get them back together. Did pretty well, and certainly enough for our purposes.

But there were several nervous days before we found it.

I have searched for my glasses, while I was looking through them. That really makes one feel weird.

Like trying to find your phone while you are talking on it?

Yep, I had a momentary lapse of reason as well.

I was asked to take a group of eight Canadians shooting,,,
They were visiting relatives here in Oklahoma.

The lady who asked me brought her Bersa Thunder .22 to use,,,
I had lined up several guns for them and my Bersa was one of them.

So I put her gun away so I wouldn't get them confused,,,
When we were finished I drove my lady friend back to her house.

To my dismay we couldn't find her pistol,,,
We took everything out of the trunk of my car.

But that Bersa was nowhere to be found.

Then we drove back to the range and searched the parking area,,,
It was grassy field so I crawled on my hands and knees for a hour or more.

A month or more went buy and I had searched that area several times,,,
I was about ready to order her a new pistol from Buds.

So one day I'm sitting there at work looking at my leather satchel hanging on the rack,,,
I had looked in it several times as it does have a hidden holster built into it.

Then I noticed the small pouch on the back of it,,,
Not really a pouch but two horizontal zippers about 10 inches long,,,
One opens the zippers and can then put the handle of a rolling bag through them.

They are meant to "tie" your satchel to your other luggage.

Just on a hunch I looked inside and there the Bersa was,,,
I quietly took the satchel to my car and stowed it away.

The scary thing was that I worked at a State University,,,
I had been carrying that gun around campus for the better part of six weeks.

If anyone would have found that gun I would have been fired,,,
Fourteen years towards a decent retirement pension would have gone up in smoke.

Everyone wants to think that they are the epitome of safety and awareness,,,
But lapses in your thought patterns can happen to anyone.

I chuckle when I tell the story now,,,
But I also shudder to think how bad the consequences could have been.

Also, three times I have gone to my private rifle/pistol club,,,
And found guns left behind.

One was a nice Ruger Mk-III pistol,,,
One was a high-dollar Beretta shotgun,,,
One was a very nicely tricked out CZ .22 rifle.

I didn't misplace one but I forgot all about one.
This was about 1993 or 94, I got a call from a small LGS one day telling me my gun was ready to pick up, I said what gun he said your .22, what .22, your Taurus.

I bought a Taurus .22 lr revolver from him and it wouldn't fire on all chambers, sometimes all 6 sometimes 5 or 4 so he sent it back and it took around a year to get it back.
Sad thing is up until about 15 years ago I was known for my great memory, now I have to go back to the op to see what this thread is about.
