There’s a lot of talk about them. Check my sidebar and I’m sure you’ll find a more in-depth discussion of the current event. I really don’t care for the moment as I have zero interest in any product produced by said company. This story has further told me to simply stay away.

That being said, if you’re concerned about RFID chips, I suspect 10-seconds in the microwave will fry most chips, but leave most items (especially non-metallic, or items made of large solid pieces of metal. I haven’t extensively researched this but I hear its thin metal like foil, or pointed metal like forks that cause the most microwave drama) also baring a metallic reaction, simply putting a glass of water in the corner of the microwave to soak up the excess energy should keep your microwave from cooking itself.

Just sayin’

    Its less the rfids themselves that are the issue and more the related press release. The chips themselves are pretty easy to disable.

    What Ruth said. The distributor really blew this deal to haggis stuffing with their release. A simple explanation that RFIDs are for inventory and a step by step on how to remove them would have made almost everyone happy.

      Yeah, I don’t care about RFIDs, especially just goofy RFID inventory stuff.

      Yeah don’t go and call the customer a retard for asking questions, and reacting to a poorly-translated itallian press release.

      Especially when your products are hi-points and the Chiappa and their messed up revolvers, and their rimfire 1911s with the metric-ton triggers.

    I guess I missed it when this news broke. I’ve spent a bit of time with RFID- those knuckleheads clearly have no idea what they are talking about.

    I would point out that putting a metal-framed firearm in your microwave might be somewhat… life-shortening… for the microwave :).

      Though you did touch on that… pretty much any metal will cause that whole arcing-and-sparking, which tends to be worse for the magnetometer than the item.
