Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

I'm sorry for your loss but there is no such thing as a minimal risk to life when you are using firearms, even in training. That's why there are so many safety procedures and in order to have sniper training you have to have high marksmanship scores which means that he would have already been trained in those procedures. The fact that there was still a round chambered clearly shows that he either didn't bother with or completely cocked up making sure that the rifle was unloaded. But even so, how bloody daft do you have to be to rest your chin on the end of the barrel, that's just common bloody sense...  noooo:
