Take the piece you want to straighten and put it under hot water in the sink. It will start to melt and you can reshape it the way you want.

For thin pieces like a gun barrel, a hairdryer can work. I've not had much luck using the sink - for bigger pieces, I usually have to heat water on the stove. This may just be that I don't have my water heater set as hot as Fred's though.

It's pretty straight forward, I can show you next time you're around if you want.
