    From what I understand, a member was unloading a rifle from his vehicle up at the rifle portion of the range and shot himself in the chest.

    A veteran town policeman fatally shot himself, apparently while pulling a rifle muzzle first from his truck.

    I did not know this gentleman. I assume he knew how to handle firearms, and had a series brainfarts that led to this accident.

    Be careful. Don't get casual. Check yourself for stupid behavior with firearms. Stay sharp.

    So sorry for his family.

    What the heck was a loaded hunting rifle doing in his vehicle? to start.
