What a moron.... Why would he put a gun to his own head? Loaded, unloaded, fake or not... its never a good idea to put any gun to your head.
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Sarcasm - Just one of the many services I provide!
Ever wonder why massacres never happen at a gun range??
You might find me dead in a ditch one day, but I'll be in a pile of brass. - Stolen from Zebra64
Well I'm sure this incident has left him open minded.
Apparently not much of a loss - there had to have been nothing but dead airspace between his ears......

I wonder what is BAC was...something was killing off his few brain cells
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria
Well I look at this as natural selection of the modern age.
Gun accidents are gonna happen, either by some negligent owner or one of the many other mishaps, but this has to be one of the dumbest acts I have ever heard of a gun owner doing. I liken it looking down the barrel of a weapon to see if it's loaded.

Secondly, don't let the wives read this story.
"officer, he was giving me a gun safety course so we could go to the range tomorrow. Out of nowhere, he put the gun to his head, asked me if it would fire, & before I had a chance to respond, he pulled the trigger." (wink, wink .... nudge, nudge)
Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".
Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!
