Bingo. Not that accidents don't happen, and real gun-cleaning ADs happen, but whenever I hear of one of these, the first thought is ""He tried to make it easier for his family".No to sound completely heartless or cynical, but it was most likely a suicide.
We had a sad case in Georgia several years ago. The specifics that I'm going to give may not be quite right, but they're close.
An assistant coach at the University of Georgia waited until his family was away from home, and then set up all his cleaning equipment and a bunch of firearms out back by the pool.
Unfortunately, his first shot went awry, and -- in pain -- he crawled around the pool to the far side before taking another shot to end the pain. The subterfuge, obviously, didn't work.
