I would hope this is obvious, but I feel like we just need to say it DO NOT try this at home.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you put a loaded 9mm Glock handgun into a microwave and turned it on for 30 minutes?

Have you also wondered what would happen if the protective screen on the microwave door was partially removed during this process?

No, well then you’re probably a normal person who thinks of normal things during the day.

The folks behind the Youtube channel DemolitionRanch think a little differently from the rest of us. Check out the above video if your curiosity about handguns and microwaves has been piqued.

Spoiler alert, the Glock doesn’t make it, but it does have a surprise towards the end. Bonus experiment: the effects of unshielded microwaves on a GoPro camera.
