    I wonder if he thought it had a magazine disconnect safety or maybe he ejected the round from the chamber before removing the magazine. Either way following the rules would have prevented this. When teaching, teach by example and make sure everyone knows the four rules.

    Talk about an 'effective' safety lesson...

    There has to be more to this. Was this guy depressed or otherwise having problems?

    The news calls this an accident. I understand an accident to be something unexpected, not planned or predictable.
    This was not an accident. It was predictable, repeatable, preventable and stupid.

    I'm trying to feel bad about this.......but I have to admit, it's a struggle. A large part of me simply sees it as a bit of chlorine in the 'ole gene pool.

    this guy was not qualified to teach gun safety to others--this is sad
    also the people that witnessed this shooting should seek counseling too

    Wow...talk about irony.
    I hope that he died before he had time to think of how stupid this was, hopefully he died without knowing what an all-time dumb move he made.

    I feel sad for his family. What a horrible way to lose someone. (There's never an easy way though, is there?)


    That said, WHAT IS IT ABOUT THOSE PLASTIC/RUBBER GUNS that it seems no one wants to use when demonstrating safety in a class-type situation? Argh!!!!! This was SO preventable, it's scary!

    *ahem*
    Not to mention your basic 4 rules. Duh.

    A safety lesson that will never be forgotten. Very sad.
