Why couldn't they just go to a normal gun range? This sounds odd though. If everyone is standing side by side like at a normal gun range, then why would this guy fall into the line of fire? At most ranges, the target is way down by the woods and everyone is shooting at the target, so how did this guy somehow fall into the line of fire of another gun? Did he trip right in front of Farlow as the gun went off? Me thinks this murder.

My prayers go to both families during this sorrowful time. I also pray for the cruel people who have no respect for anyone or anything. I have read these comments and if this horrible accident happened to their loved one, They would also be affended by remarks made.This could be your story tomorrow and your son or brother or friend. Rememeber this, what we reap, we sow !!!!!!!!!!

I'm very sorry for this family's loss. This shouldn't have happened. The first rule of gun safety at a range is that NOBODY is in front of the shooter in a 170 degree radius. This man should not have been where he could be shot, ALL others except the shooter should be BEHIND the shooter, and all weapons should be cleared and checked before returning to a loading table. This is a tragic loss and my prayers are with this family.
That would be 180 degrees there big guy...

This is why everyone should practice firearm safety at all times. I would recommend everyone that owns a firearm to teach everyone occupying the residence in which they live, including children. Safe gun handling is a must if you possess a firearm. If you do not feel comfortable teaching others yourself, there are classes, ask your local gun store, or walmart.
