    Read about this on another forum.

    Shame he died. Can't stress "saftey first" enough.

    He didn't follow the cardinal rules, it's a shame.

    I liked the comments where a genius said "Basic Handgun Safety 101: Don't carry with a round in the chamber... You chamber the round and flick the safety off as you're drawing".

    This is very sad, it's even worse that his wife was the one that found him. That has to be extremely hard for her to deal with.

    Very sad. Can't imagine what the wife is going through, especially at the moment she found him.

    "His cell phone was dialed to 911". Does this mean he CALLED 911 or was unable to hit "call"?
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    A needless tragedy.

    May it serve as a good reminder to us all!

    A tragic accident, indeed. However, the rules always apply: keep your finger off the trigger.

    And another reason why shooting someone in the leg is NOT less lethal. Terrible.

    I think people forget that the rules of gun safety were created BECAUSE of events like this in the past.
