The first tenet of hunter safety class (for me 53 years ago):

A safety is a mechanical device which can fail.

The first rule from my father:

Don't point a gun at anything you don't intend to kill.

In this case it does.

OR, it could have been that coming from Phoenix, he was overcome by the
beauty of Overgaard. If you get a chance, stop in there. Gentle mountains,
GOBs of trees, in fact it doesn't look like AZ, compared to Phoenix. :)

I've done many a dumb thing, but the worst was a single digit percentage
of the magnitude of this idiot's action. Yup, stupid does hurt. :rolleyes:

I guess his head was the ONLY thing he could point it at huh.

I'm trying to feel guilty about laughing at this, but I'm not there yet.

Common sense is the only safety needed, but obviously it was lacking in this case.

I guess it is also another example of just how well "the best safety is the one between a person's ears" can be trusted.

Well, I'm guessing that the safety didn't work, so let that be a lesson to us all: never trust the safety to keep you safe.

Mind you, I was taught that lesson when I was 10.

This would seem to be one of those "self-critiquing mistakes" where nobody needs to tell him that he screwed up...except, if he lives, he may need somebody to tell him how to dress himself, so maybe this one doesn't fit into the category.

The best safety is in your head...

I'm afraid this guy never had a chance...

In that case, this was clearly an equipment failure. His brain housing group failed to function up to specifications.
