A tragedy I have had a safety lapse but never with such a horrific consequence. My condolences to his family may he rest in peace.

So sorry for his family, but that was just dumb.

If I remember correctly, alcohol played a role in this situation.

I remember reading about this incident when it first happened. Sad to hear he passed away. But anyone who puts a gun to their head for any reason is asking for trouble.

From the article said:
Police said the woman told Clayton to put the guns away and Clayton, as if to demonstrate they were safe, put a pistol to his head and pulled the trigger. Police said Clayton may have thought the gun was unloaded.
One would think, on self-preservation grounds alone, that being absolutely, positively certain a gun's unloaded would be the first step prior to putting a gun to the head and pulling the trigger. "May have thought" it was unloaded is a pretty weak basis of evidence. Guns can poke holes very effectively. It's not hard to imagine it doing so just as effectively when angled toward one's temple, even if deliberately.

Lesson #1: There are no do-overs in this life.
