    A very sad reminder of the importance not pointing the muzzle of a gun at anything you do not intend to destroy.

    Sad and unnecessary.

    I wonder if he had a slow fire or if he pulled the trigger while examining the gun.

    Most of these have been suicides, this one sounds like a Darwin.

    Story didnt say whether he was alone or had someone there with him, that'd of been terrifying if he had a significant other or a kid with him. Prayers to his fam.

    It's amazing how many people forget or don't get the very simple and basic rules of safe gun handling.

    Could have had a slow primer,it is recommended that on a "dud" you keep the muzzle pointed downrange for 30 seconds,I usually rack the unfired case out on the ground,but I'm not looking down the barrel of a gun I just pulled the trigger on and heard a click instead of bang.
    When I see unsafe gun handling at the range,I will point it out to the person what they are doing and why it is unsafe,sometimes you don't get a chance

    Unforturnatly, there's generally no second-chances when you fail to follow the rules after something goes wrong. You, or anyone, telling someone of their unsafe practices probley saved a life down the road.

    Break the 'rules', pay the price.

    Guns are fun. Carrying is fun. Pressing the political issue is fun. Don't forget you are having fun with a device that is designed solely to end lives. RIP.
