I used to give my 1911 a light spritzing of chamomile water before bed. Now I know better.

Oh yes, a lot of unexpected things can happen in space. A gun might also shatter into pieces, just like in Terminator 2 where Arnold shoots the T1000, if you fire it up there because the temperature reaches (rarely), or comes very close to absolute zero temperature (the lowest temperature possible -459.67 Fahrenheit) in areas away from sunlight and other heat sources. Absolute or near zero makes steel, and other metals and materials extremely brittle, because the atoms stop vibrating and become super conductive if you don't heat it.

I know it's an ad, but evidently it worked for some guy against a bobcat.
