A man from Paphos died on Sunday evening after what investigators suspect was a tragic accident involving his own hunting rifle.

The man, who is from Stroumbi village, was found dead outside his home in the Kamanterena area between Stroumbi and Polemiou from a single gunshot wound. Foul play has been ruled out preliminarily as has suicide by police who suspect that the weapon may have gone off accidentally as he was holding it..........

How long do you have to live in Cyprus before you are considered a local? Is that the real reason BM wears the bucket?  rubschin:

Not a rifle - a shotgun!  Banghead

Cypriot hunters always walk round with closed, loaded shotguns.... it is a recipe for disaster.

No doubt he got back to his car with his loaded gun, drove home and it went off when he put it down or fell over and went off.... the 'safety' (which they never use anyway) is only a trigger lock on a shotgun. So any good knock can release the firing pin...

Judging from the smiles I'm guessing that in this case mate means 'I can't stand the bastard'  rubschin:
