Two dead at Rough Creek Lodge - The Glen Rose Reporter : Local News
Sounds like a hit to me.
Rest in peace Brother...
Always concerns me at a public range too......why I stopped going to public ranges....have been swept to many times by strangers.
That's what I thought too. His book/story was awesome.
If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."
"Liberals can decline or whine, but I will still carry and conceal mine." - Cold Warrior. Excellent quote good sir!
It's so tragic that he survived all that he did overseas, and this is how he goes.
Sad day with the loss of this hero...R.I.P. Chief Petty Officer Chris Kyle

I just finished his book last month...quite a read!
He will be missed by many.

That wasn't an accident. That was a hit and the rest is a cover story. I'd be willing to bet on it.
Strange story. I hope we do, in fact, get more details... RIP, brother.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Chris Kyle is an American patriot. He served our country faithfully at great sacrifice of himself and his family.
We should let the conspiracy-theory rest until more details are released. It is inappropriate.
RIP to a true warrior hero, that is not the way you should have gone out. This man earned death at an old age and was robbed of that.

There are way to many "coincidences" happening here lately. I'm not the only one to notice them.
