Witnesses said the victim was in the recliner and had been watching a movie, then picked up his gun, held it to his head and stated, "That's not how its done," the report said. He began pulling the trigger when, on the third pull, the gun went off.

That sound like he was intending suicide.

Yeah, three times? But I think coroners tend not to find suicide as the cause of death unless they are absolutely sure because of the effect on the family and the fact that many insurance policies don't cover suicide.

I guess "imitating a movie" is the new "cleaning his shotgun".

So, he was sitting in his recliner with a gun just on the table next to him? For what reason?

At least he had a shot at proving himself....

You have to give him credit: his stupidity didn't get anyone else killed.

And there were other people in the room, since "witnesses" reported the details of this blundering idiot's demise. Reminds me of the "Russian Roulette World Championship" sketch I heard on the radio this morning.

Don't watch "The Deer Hunter" with a gun at your side.

Most insurance policies have a restriction on suicide for only a fixed period at the start of the policy. My policy will pay in full after two years. I know this as my wife reminds me daily that I'm now covered no matter what.

labman: Jon-eric hexum


Actually, that guy killed himself with a blank. This guy left a bullet in his gun.

Anybody pointing a real gun to their head and pulling the trigger EVER is an idiot.

Hail Darwin!
 
2012-08-31 01:31:06 PM  
I don't care if it's just been fully disassembled, cleaned, reassembled and there's absolutely no chance of there being a bullet in it.... pointing a gun at your head and pulling the trigger is just about as stupid as you can get.

There was a guy around here who shot his sleeping wife, then took his daughter for a drive and then shot her too.

He put the gun to his own head, but couldn't get himself to pull the trigger.

It would have been slightly less idiotic if he had.

Looks like two years ago he shot and killed a person trying to break in and rob him. Maybe he was paranoid?

That's what happens when you go off half cocked
 
2012-08-31 01:44:04 PM  
I have to admit, I would have found his performance quite convincing.
 
2012-08-31 01:44:59 PM

Could be his brain wasn't firing on all cylinders.
 
2012-08-31 01:58:00 PM  
Looks like we will never again have a big shot of that caliber! At least he went out with a real bang! And he proved that he was not a dud at games and refused to go off half-cocked.

As the Irish coroner said, when asked if a man had accidentally killed himself cleaning his gun, "Sure, he was cleaning the barrel with his tongue."
 
2012-08-31 02:07:20 PM  
And nothing of value was lost.

In this story about the guy he killed in 2010:

"He could not have ran that far because I knew I shot him with a .357 three times, square in the mid-section," Gagum recalled hours after the man's death.

Perhaps he just has a habit of always firing three times.

Ummm...no. That's not accidental. Accidental is when you trip over something and the gun unintentionally discharges. Pulling the goddamn trigger three times on a revolver is asshattery and sheer stupidity....or a suicide.

I'm shocked that some people (must be new to Fark) don't realize that nearly everyone sits in their recliner with their gun next to them.

maybe one of the CSA shows could use a recurring corpse...

This generates all sorts of questions.
-What kind of egg does a dead man lay?
-If he is face down, will the eggs come popping up in the air?
-If they fall down, will the fan scramble them?

Not excusing his final stupidity, but is it "paranoid" or prepared to have insurance?
