Booze and guns. Bad combination.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
There's really not much one can say about something that stupid. So sorry for the next of kin. How does one explain that to the parents?

I feel bad for them both as well as their respective families. They were friends.
One is now dead & that is going to be a terrible memory for the other to live with for an entire lifetime.
And this is why you never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot. One of the four weapon safety rules I learned at Boot Camp. It's really too bad.

Bad juju, to deliberately point a firearm at someone's head.Originally Posted by From the article
Unsurprising, that the media spin the write-up to claim the bullet discharged itself. He pulled the trigger while the gun was pointed at the guy's head. The bullet didn't simply "discharge."
Jeff Cooper's Rules of Gun Safety
RULE I: ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED
RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY
RULE III: KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET
RULE IV: BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET
Pretty simple really.
Until you fuel things with liberal doses of alcohol.
Sad that some people will never learn.
I choose to not be around those who would not learn.
Hopefully my children will choose the same.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
