Suicides at gun ranges are a real thing, and something that range owners must be aware of and prepared for. Reasoning (if you can call it that) ranges from easy and inexpensive access to a firearm, and it leaves the mess to strangers to clean up rather than loved ones. A few years ago there was actually a murder-suicide (attempt?) at a gun range.
I hadn't thought of that, but it does make sense after I remember that not everyone owns a gun.

Was this a suicide or a lack of knowledge of safety and/or the operation of the gun?
Hard to imagine someone would go to a gun range to commit suicide. My guess is this was either a gun that was assumed to be unloaded without checking the chamber, or a person responding badly to a jam or failure. Those are not the only two possibilities, but either way more than one out of 4 basic safety rules was violated.
