Mystery in the meat: Supermarket employee finds handgun in frozen food - U.S. News



Quote:
A supermarket employee in Roswell, N.M., found an unexpected item in a case of frozen meat this week: a loaded handgun.

The Albertsons worker was unwrapping the meat, which had been shipped from a packing plant in Colorado, when he discovered the firearm, along with seven rounds of ammunition, on Wednesday.
No telling how it got there. They get their meat from Swift in Colorado which incidentally had police escorts show up last November and show som union reps the street after flyers were distributed.
Story has been scrubbed by Denver Post but here is a link to a discussion forum at same paper:

Adding to officers' challenge: The meat, which was sent to Albertsons from Swift Packing Plant in Greeley, Colo., was packaged more than a year ago.
did the gun get there by police or union rep or administration?

Rock Island Armory .38 super semi auto handgun, along with the ammo

Just my opinion (something to think about.) The caliber of that pistol is .38 super. That is not a very popular caliber in the USA. From what I have read that caliber is popular in Mexico. "Military" calibers such as .45 ACP are not legal in Mexico: Owning a Gun in México & COLT 38 SUPER I think that the .38 super may be legal. Mexico has tight gun laws and a permit would be needed but anything can be forged. With the right paperwork the gun itself might be legal. Armscor makes this pistol for Rock Island Armory. It is a Philipino company. Could this be a test run perhaps they could smuggle them directly from the Philipines to Mexico? Like I said it's something to think about.

I'm seeing a remake and update of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. . .

Instead of a lousy Golden Ticket for a tour of a confection plant staffed by illegal immigrants, Charlie finds a semi-automatic 9mm pistol in his candy with which to aid his impoverished family. Fist things first, he robs Veruca Salt.
