    what would happen if you left a semiauto handgun in a car all day, every day, in temperatures around 100 degrees? :noes:

    I haven't had any problems with leaving my Glock in the hot sun for extended periods of time.

    I've had a Beretta 96 riding around in my dash for 4+ years; in my wife's car, a Taurus 617, .357 for an equal amount of time. No damage thus far.

    So how hot do rounds have to get to cook off?

    Is that even a danger inside a car?

    Nothing at all, except it will get hot.

    Nitrocellulose (the chemical that makes up modern gunpowder) doesn't ignite until 279 degrees fahrenheit.

    If it was hot enough for your rounds to cook off, you'd already be baked. :noes:

    In NM, you can carry in the car or in a holster without a permit.

    I'm really happy with the trend toward relaxing gun laws. This is a good thing. It's almost like the government is starting to respect the Constitution. :cool:
