Glock Leg Syndrome to Glock Head Syndrome??
 
A few days ago I read a online article about a guy very recently who killed himself at a shooting range while disassembling or reassembling his Glock. Did anyone else catch that article? How the heck did/could that happen?

Well obviously the gun did it. My guess is the gun hoped up on the bench put a mag in itself. Worked the slide, and pulled it's own trigger. At least that is what I heard on Sunday night football.

Damm. I didn't think stuff like that really happened.
P.s- wasn't doubting it at all just wanted to read.

Guns don't just "go off". This guy made a safety mistake and paid with his life. Sad story, but only one person to blame.

Always ALWAYS check the chamber!!
It takes 3 seconds and aparently it will save your life. Sad story indeed.

You have to pull the trigger while holding down the takedown lever to disassemble those things...

1-Why was it loaded???

2-Why did he have it pointed at himself???

Then I've been doing it wrong for a LONG time

Thanks for the input. I have never handled a Glock and of course if a person is careless with any gun the result can be tragic like this.
