I have found the strangest things in some of the cars we’ve parked sitting right in the open. I’ve seen sex toys, rotting food, and … loaded handguns.
My coworker was driving a car to the parking lot and told me to hop in and catch a ride. I moved a map on the passenger seat to sit down, and that’s when we found this. We thought it was a toy. It looked fake, like a cap gun. We were waving it around being morons when my coworker said “Point it at me while I take a picture.” So I did, and that’s when I noticed there were real bullets in the chambers.
I could have easily shot him in the face if I’d pulled the trigger. I probably said, “Shit, I think this is a real gun.” So we put it back on the front seat, and left it where we found it.
The car was driven by a 60 year-old man who you’d never guess was packing heat.
