    Man dies of gunshot wound at range.

    Not sure what all happened. Not much reported. Hope it wasn't anyone from here. Anyone have any further info?

    Sadly it appears this was a self inflicted wound.

    Walk softly and carry a large caliber.

    My prayers go out to his family whoever he was.

    I spoke with some officers from Mooresville PD when they came in for their coffe break at the Circle K my buddy works at. They told me the investigation was still ongoing. They weren't at liberty to give any details yet and didn't want to spread speculation.

    Sad news. Let's keep the family and friends of the deceased in our thoughts and prayers.

    I've never rented a firearm at a range before. Do they do a background check before they rent to you? The reason I ask is that this man may have fallen into the category of individuals who are not permitted to own a firearm. If he was indeed renting, that may explain why.

    Most places do not perform background checks for renting firearms. However, I have heard of ranges requiring you to bring a range buddy if you are only renting a gun and not shooting your own. I guess the mentality is that if you plan on committing suicide, you probably aren't going to bring a friend with you.

    sounds good in theory but...

    a denver range midsummer had two sisters from down under try the murder suicide and one was a bad shot so one lived...so the buddy system might be flawed a bit...
