I guess I can't say that any more.
Vancouver man dies after shooting himself in Kamloops pistol contest | Vancouver Sun:
June 12, 2017
In an extremely unusual tragedy, a man fatally shot himself by accident during a pistol competition in Kamloops on Sunday. The 50-year-old Vancouver man died shortly after arriving at the hospital in Kamloops. “It’s rarer than getting hit by lightning, you got ‘er,” said Jim Sloper, president of the 132-year-old Kamloops Target Sports Association. “I’ve competed around the world and I’ve never come across it. Injuries are unheard of, let alone fatal shootings.”Damn! I can't imagine how his friends and family are dealing with this tragic loss.
Now IPSC is only slightly safer than high-school football.

[NOTE: Apparently, he dropped his loaded pistol ... and tried to catch it. You try to tell people not to do that, but it's instinct.]
