    What in the world was he thinking? He says one thing and goes and does something completely contrary to what he was saying. Almost sounds manic depressive. I wonder if there's more to this story. Anyway, still very sad.

    A 26-year-old Phoenix man accidentally killed himself early Sunday while explaining gun safety to two Sierra Vista residents.
    Samuel Benally Jr. was at an apartment on West Tacoma Street when he said guns should be kept unloaded because people could point them at their heads, said Sierra Vista police Sgt. Brett Mitchell.
    Benally then demonstrated by putting his own 9mm Ruger, which he believed to be unloaded, to his head and firing it, Mitchell said.
    Benally was flown to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Mitchell said.
    An investigation is ongoing, but police do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved, Mitchell said.
    How many people come upon a gun and think " hey a gun, let me put it to my head and pull the trigger".

    Why teach that guns should be locked and unloaded cause that's the first thing people will do?

    Sad story, but at least he didn't use someone else's head to demonstrate...

    Well, unfortunately he demonstrated rule # 1 very well... to the point I think they will remember that lesson forever.

    I am amazed. What was he thinking? Sure seems like something is missing from this event. Someone else messing with his guns maybe?

    There was a similar incident in ~1992 in Eagle Rock, CA. A newly graduated police officer was out with his friends and showing off his service pistol. He ejected the magazine, pointed the gun at his temple and pulled the trigger. To bad he forgot about the one in the pipe.

    "An investigation is ongoing, but police do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved, Mitchell said. "

    Neither were a few other things, like common sense.

    Do the words "Someone hold my beer for me and watch this..." come to mind?

    No offense, but that is why I got trained by a SWAT officer.

    My condolences to the family of the instructor.

    It just goes to show that owning a handgun doesn't make you a gun expert any more than going to Mc Donalds makes you a Big Mac!
