    A woman is still alive after she walked into Red’s Indoor Shooting range in Southwest Austin this morning and shot herself, police said.

    Sgt. Richard Stresing with the Austin Police Department said the woman, who is in her 30s, did not threaten anyone nor did she injure anyone else. Police said her injuries are critical, and she was taken to University Medical Center at Brackenridge.

    The range is located in the 6200 block of U.S. 290 West.

    Great, so if the range doesn't close because she sues them, it likely will due to whatever crazy prices I'm sure they will now be paying for insurance.

    Fuck that girl, I hope she doesn't die, and has to live life as a quadriplegic.

    I thought this was going to be about me. Range retard was blowing a gasket the other day cos I walked onto a "hot range" which consisted of two guys shooting rifle 300ft away on the other side of a berm at the 200yrd range.

    This is more common than you think it is, happened here the other day

    Update: Police say shooting at Shooters apparently suicide

    By Alan Riquelmy and Lily Gordon

    A shooting at a local firing range about noon today appears to be a suicide, according to a law enforcement officer on the scene. “It was on purpose,” said the police official. “They’ve got a video tape showing that. He put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.”


    Columbus police detectives were dispatched to Shooters of Columbus, 4445 Milgen Road, shortly before noon in reference to a reported shooting.


    Another investigator on the scene said, “All I know is I’ve got a pile of blood in there.”


    At 12:35 p.m. that same official said he was on his way to a local hospital.


    Jim Walls has been a customer of Shooters for about four years and was checking on a re-loading component at the shop when he heard about the shooting.


    “I’m shocked,” Walls said. “It’s set up very safe in there.”


    A reporter is at Shooters now and will provide readers with further details as we get them.

    If your going to off yourself why not just buy a gun and go do it in privacy?

    If you want to be an attention whore about it well then I could think of many more creative ways to do it to get attention then at a range.

    Leave it to a woman to fail a suicide attempt WITH A FUCKING GUN. I can understand not taking enough pills or not slitting one's wrists properly, but seriously, HOW DO YOU FUCK THIS UP?!?!?!?!!?
     
  13. I know a guy who was dating a girl whose mother tried offing herself with a bolt action .22 She shot herself 3 times in the chest with it, but failed to achieve the desired result.

    Insurance. Most policies are null and void if you off yourself I believe

    Kill yourself while you're enjoying a day of shooting at the range.....oops...that sucks....here's the check.

    Kill yourself while cleaning the ole 45, oops....that sucks...here's the check.

    You don't really think ALL of the people who shoot themselves in the face while cleaning their gun are really that stupid do you? They had the brains to go ahead and put some Hoppes and a rag on the table along with the magazine minus 1 bullet.

    Its easier to just rent a gun and off yourself at the range if you don't own a gun. For the longest time I couldn't fathom why my local gun range required you to own your own gun in order to rent theirs. Then I discovered it was to avoid suicides.

    Maybe the reason for killing herself was financial problems? Duh.

    I believe alot of policies do payout for suicides now.

    I can't recall ever seeing a story about a lethal self inflicted wound that wasnt called a suicide. Accident at home would be easier to fake.

    OK, just heard from my buddy that it was a .22 and although he wasn't there, believes she shot herself in the head.
