Many stores have cheap thermal bags for transporting frozen items home, Aldi's for one. What keeps cold in will also keep heat out. So use of one of these to store your gun and ammo in in your trunk, might be a good idea and reduce the chance of spoilage.

Not a bad suggestion, though I think very unnecessary. I've never once heard of a gun going of without a pull off the trigger.

It's not about the gun going off it's about the primer going bad after being in and out of extreme heat.

Pretty sure it would take an oven, but whatever you want to do...

In Arizona in the summer you are more likely to severely burn your hands on the steering wheel. The problem will be firing a handgun with 2nd degree burns.

Nah I've seen enough SD JHP's primers go bad from being in and out of extreme temps and not fire .Nothing like having a paperweight when you need a gun.
