Default 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.

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.

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???

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.
