Okay, just to set some things straight. He was an open division shooter, but he was not one of these guys that is on the edge of being out of control fast. He was very methodical; he just shot an open gun. To give you an idea, on the first day of the match, out of 190 rounds, he only shot 2 D's and 1 M on classic IPSC targets. He was not reckless. There was a part of the stage where you had to lift a port that had was hinged at the top, the kind of ports that people sometimes lift up and then prop on the top of their head. I heard that after he shot that position, the port slammed down and knocked the gun out of his hand. I've also heard that he had started a reload so had taken one hand off the gun, but based on the layout of the stage, it wasn't a place that most people would have reloaded after.
He was not unsafe. Media and even the police are calling it a freak accident, and that's exactly what it was.
I don't think anyone has hinted at anything that implies this guy was unsafe or that this was anything but a tragic accident.
My crack at IPSC Canada was about their dumb tests which I suppose you need to appease a hostile .gov that would rather you not have any handguns at all
